How to convert large documents?
I have a two-page activity in Microsoft Word, but the problem is that it consume 3.9 MB!!! So hilarious.. I used  few (6) scanned stuffs (JPEG Format). Is there any way to convert them into smaller bytes??? Or, do I have to redo it.

I use IrfanView to reduce the size of my pictures. It is free to download from the net. You just open the picture from file and re-save using the īsave asī function and save it in JPEG format (by selecting this on the drop down menu at the bottom of the save screen). Before you click save you can adjust a quality meter bar, I usually drop it back to 30-40% (but you can do what works best for you). The smaller you reduce the bar the smaller your picture size.
Download it from http://www.irfanview.com/
Hope that helps with picture problems!

Hi there,

You could also try Easy Thumbnails, which can be used to create thumbnails as the name says, but also to resize, compress, and rotate pictures. I use it to resize the photos I post on my website and itīs very practical. you can download it free at http://www.fookes.com/ezthumbs/
Hope it helps!
