Hi Rene!
I usually try to reduce the size of the pictures I use, and if my worksheets are still too big, I check whether they are tiff, gif, bmp, jpeg... Jpeg is usually the format that makes size smaller.
You can also save your pictures as a pdf and then add them to your worksheet. That īs what I do when I have to include many pictures in my worksheets.
I hope I helped you. And welcome!

Ps to my message above - there is a good program called NXpowerlite that you can use 10 times for free and it reduces the size of your images!
try it
