Screenshot Size, sent vs saved



I'm using Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 (12.0.6300.5000) SP1 MSO
(12.0.6320.5000) and I would like to suggest an enhancement to the way
pictures are mailed in Outlook. The issue I have is this: when I press
Alt+PrtScn to capture a screenshot, and paste that into an email and send it,
the size of the email is _huge_ (ususally 3MB+). However, if I were to paste
that same screenshot into MSPAINT.EXE and save it as a JPG, the file size is
~71KB. It seems like the email size shouldn't be nearly as large as it is...
Could we get an option available in Tools->Options that we can check to say
it's OK to modify images pasted directly into the mail so that they are sent
as JPG images instead of whatever they are that takes 3MB?

Humm, e-mail w/inserted Alt-Printscreen is only 141 kb in size. You must
have some other problem with your system.
