Here is a comparison (the doc file is 9.1 k while the rtf file is only 2.4k):
9,129 21 Memos.doc
2,443 21 Memos.rtf
Now majority of the photographs are taken using digital camera or scanned into the computer. We then take this pictures to post into our blogs. Majority of the time the pictures are used for illustration and does not need to be so big. One thing that can be done is to use free tools like Picasa to reduce the size. In the following example, my original photo is 2048 x 1536 pixels. The size is 739k. By using Picasa, I exported to file to 320 x 240 pixels, the size is reduced to 29k. This will make it much easier to upload.
By using the combination of the two, it will facilitate uploading your stories to websites like Triond.
