Hi Stephen

Actually it does reduce the size of the imbedded image as long as you choose 
the option "change the resolution"  If you select "No Change" it just tries 
to compress it, often with very little improvement.  I just confirmed this 
starting with a 7+ megapixel image.  After resizing it was down to 650 
kilopixels.  Other than that, you're absolutely right about the megapixel 
race thing.
