    File Size Problem (2K/2002 XP)

    Our Year 11 at school are about to make preparations for their Year Book. We intended to produce the pages in-house then get the books professionally bound. The pages will consist of text and images in different arrangements. We decided to use Publisher so that we can rotate image objects.
    Our problem is this:
    We have some jpegs stored showing Tutor groups etc of the order of 125kB. If one of these jpegs is inserted into a blank page and saved, the publisher file stored is over 2MB - about 20 times the original. This will have implications for both storage and printing.
    Why is the file so large?
    Is there a more efficient solution?
    TIA.

    Re: File Size Problem (2K/2002 XP)

    File size seems to be the worst problem with Publisher documents. I have a one page .pub document with text and 4 small compressed jpegs inserted that weighs in at 5534kB. My workaround was to convert to a .pdf (Adobe will do it online for free if you don't have access to full Acrobat) which in my case brought it down to 120kB and certainly over here printers (the commercial chaps rather than the machines we have plugged in our parallel ports!) will prefer the format.
    Regards

    This file size issue was addressed in the release of Publisher 2002. Compression was improved with the release of 2002 as well as the upcoming Microsoft Publisher 2003.

    Thanks Sue and Brian. I'll explore the Adobe suggestion.
