Try downloading this. http://download.cnet.com/NXPowerLite/3000-2250_4-10455524.html you can reduce 20 documents with this, but use them wisely if you don ´t plan on buying the software.

Hi Patricia Smile
If you work in MICROSOFT WORD and you want to add some pictures, cut and paste them again on the page, by using the buttom EDIT, SPECIAL PASTE, "GIF" FORMAT.
It helps you to reduce the size of your document a lot.
I hope it is useful for you.

Also check out ´tutorial ´ in the worksheet search (at the top of this page).

I thought I would paste a few links which may be useful to people who use Microsoft Office. These links are to simple tutorials on how to use basic image editors that come with the MS Office suites. They cover things like resizing images, conversion to grayscale & a whole lot more!
Microsoft Photo Editor came with Office 1997 - Office 2000:
Microsoft Office Picture Manager has replaced the Photo Editor since Office 2003 (updated):

These editors allow you to resize and change your images to get the end result that you desire.
One last word of advice though - I would keep your original image on your computer and edit a copy of that picture. That way, if you need a higher resolution or larger image at a later date then you won´t have any problems!
