    Save only links to image and not embed them (2000)

    Hi,

    We produce Publisher files with large images, which it current imbeds them in the .pub file, si there a way that it does not embed them therefore not creating massively huge .pub files?
    Best Regards,

    Luke

    When you insert an image using Insert | Picture | From File..., the Insert button in the dialog that appears has a little dropdown arrow. If you click this dropdown arrow, you get two options: Insert and Link to file.

    For existing images:
    - Right-click the image.
    - Select Change Picture | Graphics Manager from the popup menu.
    - Click Create Link.

    Okay,

    Tried his, in publisher 2000.

    I ammend via the graphics manager to reflect that the images are links and not embedded and the file size stays the same.

    So I delete all the pictures, save the file as a new file name, insert the background picture, which is a large tif of a4 marble effect and link it, checking that it is not embedded and the file size increased from 25kb with no pictures to 28mb with a picture which supposedly is linked. Any ideas?
    Best Regards,

    Luke

    Sorry, no. Hopefully somebody with more experience in Publisher will come to your assistance.
