Plotting with a raster image attached

by mike briggs

I have a raster image (tiff) attached to my autocad dwg. When I try to plot it creates a file that is 50 mb. The ordinal tiff is about 500kb. What can I do to reduce the size of my plot file?

RASTER IMAGE PLOT SIZE

perhaps there's other stuff in the drawing making it bulky. i always do purge & audit.
not sure how to make the image itself smaller in cad other than shrinking it maybe.
