Re: Embedding pictures into Reports

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For many years I have used a very handy, quite powerful, and highly praised photo-editing program called "Irfanview."  Read a review and download at
The program is free.  However, after I used it for a while, I sent a check to its creator.  I
even had a chance to talk to him online.
 
When I have concerns about the report size, I do not embed pictures - I just link them.  The size of the report stays small (effectively, its just a Word file), but the pictures are still there.  Not to loose the photos due to some glitch, I also print the reports in the PDF format (2-to-3 times compression).

You can also use "Paint" to resize pictures and save into JPEG Format.

Dennis,

If you are using Office 2003.  Try the Office Picture Manager.  It has a
resize function that works reasonably well.  If you do not have Office 2003.
You can download the WindowXP PowerToys at
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx.  It
has a ImageResizer that help you resize picture using Window Explorer.  HTH

Subject: Embedding pictures into Reports

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?
Thanks
Dennis
