I have a word document of 51 KB and 3 pictures each of 317,318,325 KB. After inserting the pictures my document becomes 4873 KB. I deleted all the pics and noticed that after adding the first pic instead of my doc becoming 368 KB (doc + pic)it showed 1612 KB and the document size increased by a similar amount after each pic was added until, after adding all 3 pics the doc showed 4873 KB. I am at a loss to understand why this should happen when my completed doc should only be 1+ KB. Any ideas?
Sorry about confusion,my wife posted this thread and i only found out about it today.She is in making up a small monthly newsletter which is normally about 1MB and this one contains 3 pictures each approx. 320Kb and 50Kb of text.The first one she did was 24MB, she tried again and it came out at nearly 5MB and when she emails it,it causes havoc with the email on the recipients computer.
My computer is free from viruses etc. so she must be doing something wrong.I,ll make up a list of abbreviations for her (MB,KB etc.)
