compress pictures in office documents
I've just noticed this for the first time.
The never ending problem of users saving massive pictures in documents can be solved by:
Open a Office 2003 program
Go to save as
On right hand side of the dialog box you will see tools
click this and select compress pictures..
you can now reduce the size of images in a document thus reducing file sizes.

but modern document formats (odt and docx) are compressed anyway...
Is the compression better this way?

this is for instances where kids scan photos/pictures or copy digital camera pictures straight into Powerpoint without resizing the images first resulting in massive files.
We are a Office 2003 enviroment.

This can also be done by right clicking a picture, going to properties and selecting compress - you then get the option to compress all if needed.
Very useful... especially when a certain teacher hands you a memory stick 2 mins before an assembly expecting their 30-40 page ppt with 3mb photos on each page to run smoothly luckily its pretty fast at compressing them also!

I've been trying to get pople to use this at school for years... with little success.
It seems that teaching kids to put pictures in their powerpoints is on the syllabus. Making the powerpoint a manageable size, isn't.
The marketing manager was moaning about how slow powerpoint was, but photo compression of her 150 Meg presentation meant it opened in a fraction of the the time *sigh - mutters about repeating myself all the time...*

yeah we installed image resizer and have been trying to get teachers to teach the pupils to resize pictures/photos yet we are still getting kids coming in with massive powerpoints.
I'm going to set up some pdas intructions accessible through the start menu so the kids follow that instead of coming to us though.
i guess its changing long term habits.
the staff are probably worse tbh; our shared drives are littered with photos straight off digital cameras.
luckly for them we dont have quotas...yet.
