Embedding pictures into Reports

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
We just had a discussion regarding digital camera's and most of us are shooting pictures that take up over 2-4Mb per shot. If I want to copy and paste a shot into a Word report (or other OLE based program) which will give me the best picture and how do I reduce the resolution and size of the embedded picture. Here is what I know of Digital world. Resolution such as 7 mega pixel relates to the size of the picture taken. In general a 7 mega pixel resolution is something around 3072x2304 which is equivalent to an 8x10 picture. When saved, the file size is nearly 3 Megabytes which would create a report full of pictures that is extremely large.

If I reduce the picture by a copy and paste, am I reducing the size of the information embedded into the report without losing sharpness or focus?

How do you best use these pictures (assuming a normal setting is still close to this size) for use in reports or to help the plan checker understand the deficiencies on a remodel you are doing?

Any help?
