Formatting pictures in Word can enhance their appearance. Use and format pictures to better suit your Word documents.
You'll need to monitor the file size of your documents that include pictures, especially if you send them via email. Large high-resolution pictures can quickly cause your document to become too large, which may make it difficult or impossible to attach to an email. In addition, cropped areas of pictures are saved with the document by default, which can add to the file size. Word can reduce the file size by compressing pictures, lowering their resolution, and deleting cropped areas.
