        Kate,

        I'm not sure how familiar you are with PhotoShop (or another editing
        software), but you can reduce file size by sacrificing resolution and
        "quality". I just had this conversation this morning with my son and
        he says that JPG images have a "quality" setting that when lowered to
        around 80% drastically reduces the file size. I have him trying this
        with copies of some files I want to put on PhotoBucket - never tinker
        with originals, always work on copies (in my office we copy data to a
        "raw data" folder and then copy&paste the entire folder and do all the
        work in the "copy of raw data" folder)!

        Another thing to do is crop down the images to JUST what you want to
        show. You eliminate all the extra stuff that serves little purpose in
        displaying the quality of your work.

        I was going to suggest that you PDF the Word file, that usually yields
        decent results...

        Silvester
