JPG and Bitmap images add to file size

I added a .jpg image to my .dft file. The .jpg file was 370kb but it added about 3MB to the size of my .dft file. The same thing happens with a bitmap file. Is this normal or is there some method to keep the file size down?

Thanks
Rich

Rich,
Open a Draft file.
Click on the Application button at the upper left.
Click on Solid Edge Options button at the bottom of the drop list.
Click on the General tab in the Solid Edge Options dialog.
Uncheck 'Include Draft Viewer data in file'.
Save the file again.
See if the file size changed.
Regards,
Rick B.

That worked great. My file size went from 8.7MB to 1MB. Thanks for the help.
