Never insert photos or JPG files by copy and paste. Never - not even once


Do copy and paste if you want the JPG to appear in the document in its original size; then drag and replace the image to reduce its size, as recommended above.

Read the tutorial. Copy and pasting JPG files stores them as huge PNG files within the document. That is why you should not do it.

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
