problem adding image to .rtf file

Hi,
if i put a little .jlp image on any of my new file, the dimension
incredibly grow. (i.e. a file with no text, and one image of 15 KB became
800 K :-( )

I work on:
-win XP
- Libreoffice 4.1.6 (i'm downloading 4.2.4)


any Idea?

TIA

Renato

Re: problem adding image to .rtf file

Hi )
Have you tried using the native Odf format instead?

The Rtf format is a Microsoft proprietary format that never seemed to
manage to achieve it's promises of interoperability.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich_Text_Format#Criticism
Apparently it even led to MS losing a court-case!  MS then started to
abandon the format and their newer format, OOXML, started to appear.  OOXML
makes all the same promises, apparently with a similar level of lack of
success but with a bit more care taken to avoid being taken to court.

Throughout it's history Rtf has been plagued by malware issues although
lack of uptake has minimised the effects;

It seems it's best to avoid Rtf.
