Printing and Constipation

If you are having problems printing out files, the chances are the culprits are all those MASSIVE images you are squeezing into those documents.

Just dragging the corners and squeezing an image into a smaller hole does nothing to change the actual image size, it just squeezes it into a smaller hole.

Then when you send it to the printer it overloads its precious memory and you get printer constipation.

The solution is simple, before you print, reduce the file size, this is easier than you might think.

In Word, just choose 'Reduce File Size...' 

Or in Pages:

You will find similar options in applications like PowerPoint and Keynote as well.
