Is there a way to keep the jpg compression in .ai-files with embeded raster graphics?
Ok so I had an .ai-file of 2800kB.
I pasted a 2MB jpg in the document and the file is now 16MB.
So I guess the JPG is converted to some pixel graphic so transforms etc. could be done easily. And maybe also saved an extra time in the PDF-preview.
However I find this a wast of space, since I mostly use jpgs as visualisation/illustration. Is there a lighter way?
