Reduce Microsoft Office Word files (doc or docx) that contains images (compress)


We bring up to your attention a small tutorial about how you can reduce Microsoft Office Word files (doc or docx) that contains images .

Usually if you insert images in this kind of documents without resize the images you will save a very large file, and if you want to send them to email it can take long time depending of your internet connection, or cannot be send because of your email size limit.

In Microsoft Office Word you have to open a file, click to one of the images and in the top bar of the file the FORMAT button will appear .

Click on FORMAT button and in the left you will see Compress Pictures button .

Click on Compress Pictures, uncheck the “Apply to selected pictures only” for reduce the size of all images, not just the one you select .

Click on Option button and check “Automatically perform basic compression on save” and “Delete cropped area of pictures” .

At “Target output” check E-mail.

In this way you will have a lower file , but just if you don’t want a very high quality of the images or if you already resized your images with a image software .

Save your file, preferably on docx format and voila, you’ll have a small size file .

This tutorial applies on Microsoft Office 2007 until Microsoft Office 2016 .
