QUESTION: How do I disable picture compression in Outlook 2007?

When I send a message, Outlook 2007 automatically recompresses my inserted

jpeg pictures, even after following Microsoft's HELP instructions for

deactivating picture compression.

When inserted, pictures look fine. After a message has been sent, however,

one can easily see that Outlook reduces the quality of inserted pictures

(for example, they are not nearly as sharp as what I save in Photoshop CS3

and subsequently insert into my messages).

FYI, this is what Microsoft's Help says:

----------Change the Compress Pictures default settings

The Compress Pictures feature automatically reduces the file size of

pictures when you save your document. You can also delete the cropped parts

of pictures from a file by using this feature.

The Automatically perform basic compression on save option applies only to

the document that is open in the current program. All of the other options

in the Compression Settings dialog box apply to all documents in Office

Excel 2007, Office PowerPoint 2007, Office Word 2007, and Office Outlook

2007.

1. Select a picture in the document.

2. Under Picture Tools, on the Format tab, in the Adjust group, click

Compress Pictures.

3. Click Options, and then do one or more of the following:

* To stop automatic reduction of picture file size when you save the

document, clear the Automatically perform basic compression on save check

box. [I DID THIS]

* To automatically delete cropped areas of pictures when you save the

document, select the Delete cropped areas of pictures check box, and then

click OK. [I DIDN'T DO THIS]

* To automatically save cropped areas of pictures, clear the Delete cropped

areas of pictures check box. [I DIDN'T DO THIS]

Are you working with custom dpi-settings in Windows?

If so; what do you have it set to?

What is the dpi-value of the images?

I do have a custom setting of 145%. My image resolution is 72dpi

I tried this solution I found:

Okay, I guess everyone but me knew the solution was to go into Word 2007, then click the Office logo, then click "Word Options", then "Advanced", then scroll down and click "Web Options…", then the Pictures tab, then change the "Pixels Per Inch" under "Target Monitor" to 120? This seemed to solve the problem for me

120 improved the image quality--I will play with this setting.
