I prepare documents in Word 2013. Each document runs into 100s of pages which includes over 50 pages of photographs in a table format. The table has three columns:
Each page will have about 3 photographs.
I re-size the original image into 320 x 480 pixels using ImageResizer (Microsoft powertoy). Doing so will reduce the size of the pic from 3 MB to about 100 KB.
When I copy + paste about 200 pics in the document, the file size would be anywhere from 10 MB to 50 MB. But if I then do cut + paste special + paste as JPEG for each pic, the file size is reduced to less than 5 MB.
Is there a way for me to copy a pic from a folder and directly paste as JPEG? Or even better, is there a way to batch edit all pics in a document so that all of them are pasted as jpeg at one go?
Any tip in this regard will be a huge help as I spend significant time and effort selecting each pic and paste special as jpeg.
Edit: I should mention that I am total novice when it comes to technical stuff. Can manage clicking a series of buttons etc but codes and other stuff are way over my head.
