Formatting pictures in Word can enhance their appearance. Use and format pictures to better suit your Word documents.
If you plan to email a document that contains pictures, you'll need to monitor its file size. Large, high-resolution images can cause your document to become very large, which may make it difficult to attach to an email. Additionally, cropped areas of pictures are saved within the document by default, which can add to the file size.
Thankfully, you can reduce your document's file size by compressing your pictures. This will lower their resolution and delete cropped areas.
Compressing a picture may noticeably affect its quality (for instance, the image may become blurry or pixelated). Therefore, we recommend saving an extra copy of your document before you compress pictures. Alternatively, be prepared to use the Undo command if you're dissatisfied with the results.
