WORD file compression

I just wanted to know what are the default save options when saving a word file.

We have a 100mb file mainly composed of images. We use Aspose to add a watermark to it and to enable track changes. Once the file is saved with Aspose, it ends up at 10mb.

I guess it’s only a matter of picture compression, but I would like to know what are the default values, and if there is a way to keep the options of the original file instead.


Hi Pascal,

Aspose.Words does nothing with images upon converting documents. Output size depends on input/output formats because some formats are more compact than others. For example DOCX format is more compact than DOC and RTF, and DOC is more compact than RTF.

Please upgrade to latest version of Aspose.Words:

Are you observing any changes in actual content of document?

Best regards,
