If you are submitting a Word document containing a number of large images, you may wish to compress these when you save. We recommend that you create a copy of your original file before compressing, and always check the quality of images after you have reduced the file size. To do this, click File, Save As, type a new name for your file to create a copy, then click Tools. In the Tools drop-down list, click Compress Pictures... You can then choose Print (220ppi) to compress to a level that is still suitable for printing, and click OK. Check the quality of your pictures in the compressed document.
