Image Size versus Excel File Size
Posted on 2011-05-10
I have an Excel file with an ActiveX Image control. The file is 867KB. When I insert a 38K JPG image into the control, the file size goes to 1231KB! If I remove the image, the file size goes back to 867KB.
I have four of these ActiveX Image controls. If I put images in them which total 70KB as JPEG's on my disk, the file grows by 886KB! How can images make the file grow by ten times their size?
I love the control that the ActiveX Image control gives, but this file size is killing me!
