Re: Print screen?

FYI: print screen images are in BMP format which is rather large. A word
doc can get mighty large with these screen caps. For my tutorials I paste
them into paint then save as JPEG and then repaste into Word. It reduces
the file sizes by 1/5 of the old size in many cases....

For posting to the internet you're exaclty right. For a doc I keep on my HD for my own use Cut/Paste bmp's is easier. I've got the HD space.

Sean,

You're right about JPEG file size being much smaller than BMP file.
But I'm not sure about inserting JPEG into Word. This is what I
found from a little experiment:

> Save as 24-bit BMP (BMP file size = 2,417 KB)
> Insert BMP file into Word (DOC file size = 85 KB)

2. Alt+Print Scrn > Paste into Word (DOC file size = 85 KB)

3. Alt+Print Scrn > Paste into Paint >
> Save as JPEG (JPEG file size = 161 KB)
> Insert JPEG file into Word (DOC file size = 181 KB)

Hmm...It's been a while but I was having problem with my Word docs getting
to be 100+MB. I don't recall the exact prodeduce but there is a difference
between cut and pasting in a JPEG and insert from a file I belive.

My experiment: (all in kB)

JPEG Size: 245
BMP Size: 3841
GIF Size: 299

BMP Pasted into Word: 4,189
BMP Inserted in Word: 173

JPEG Pasted into Word: 5,335
JPEG Inserted in Word: 266

GIF Pasted into Word:1,846
GIF Inserted in Word: 292

I guess I was rememebring wrong. It must have been GIF files I used...

I forget all of that color math I used to know and how to optimize image
sizes....
