I've just typed my annual Christmas Letter, but cannot find

Resolved Question:

I've just typed my annual Christmas Letter, but cannot find the 'Compress button' to reduce the size of the photos that I've included! So, I have a huge file, too big to send via email. In file, there is a 'reduce file size', but I cannot access it! How do I reduce my file size, as I have done in years past! I'm working on a MacBook Air. Please help, Thanks, Thelma.

Hi,I'm sorry about the issue. How about when you right-click on a picture when in the Word file?Also, please see athttp://onlinesupport.conted.ox.ac.uk/TechnicalSupport/CompressingImagesToReduceFileSize.php#MacUsershttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6NewJ8yQJohttps://support.office.com/en-us/article/Reduce-your-file-size-631d1d48-a56b-4fd4-ad66-091dd201db10By the way, it takes time to compress pictures, and it may not be small enough if you have too many pictures.I recommend to try this method: Upload your Word file at the website below:http://www.wikisend.com/, then it will give you the file link (and ID number), then just email the file link.Another method is to use Dropbox to upload and sharehttp://www.dropbox.com/https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/90https://www.dropbox.com/help/274?path=sharing_files_and_foldersPlease reply at the box below to continue troubleshooting. Thank you.

Hi Viet,
Looking through the links that you have sent me.... I have already checked out every link on every web-site... and keep being told the same thing that on my Word for Mac 2011 I SHOULD have under the format picture menu & adjust - a compress feature - BUT I DON'T! It's not there!! I really don't want to spend more money on being the same thing and getting nowhere! Unfortunately, Apple has only just moved into my city and the wait time for the genies bar his 8 days!!
