Turn off picture compression

To keep the maximum picture quality, you can turn off compression for all pictures in a file. However, turning off compression can cause very large file sizes without an upper limit on the size of the file.

  1. Click the File tab.

  2. Under Help, click Options, and then click Advanced.

  3. Next to Image Size and Quality, click the file that you want to turn off picture compression for.

  4. Under Image Size and Quality, select the Do not compress images in file check box.

Note   This setting applies only to pictures in the current file or the file selected in the list next to Image Size and Quality.

To compress a picture or set other picture quality or resolution options, see Reduce the file size of a picture.

Applies To: Excel 2010, Word 2010, PowerPoint 2010
