Subject: Desperately Seeking Graphics in Word Expertise
A colleague of mine created a Word6 document, 37 pages long, with many
graphics (screen shots), which is an unwieldy 11 MB. He inserted the
graphics by saving them as .gif files and doing a File/Insert Picture in
Word. I am sure there must be a way to decrease the size of this doc by
inserting the graphics in a different way (different format or different
method). Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks very much,
