Today I was trying to send a Word document that had a couple of innocuous looking diagrams in it. The document was 8Mb. The images was greatly inflating the size. Examining the images I could see that Word was dynamically scaling them down but how do you tell Word to just save the picture at the resulting scale? Well in Word 2010 double click the picture and select the ‘Compress’ ribbon button and NOT the ‘Size’ ribbon.
