Impossible to compress a wrod document


Impossible to compress a wrod document
Hi friends,
I īve just created a printable I want to share with you. However, I always have the same problem. I insert cliparts that I can īt compress later.
I īve tried compressing them already through the "compress all the images of the document" that word offers.
I always see that you send lots of printables with a lot of pictures....How do you do it???
Please, help me!!! I īm desperate!!
Thank you!!

Hi! You must save your images in a file before you insert them on a worksheet. I mean, don īt copy and paste an image from the Net. Save it first as a JPEG image. That must solve the problem. If not, open the image in the file you saved it as JPEG and click with the right button of the mouse on "Open with" microsoft Picture Manager. Then resize the image.
Have a nice day,
