Part 1.

1. Create a new Writer document.
2. Click "Insert > Image" and insert the image test2-trade-bill.jpg, which is 244 KB.
3. Save the document, but don't close it.
4. Notice the document size is now 262 KB. Fair enough: 244 KB for the embedded JPG image and the rest for the document itself.

Part 2.

5. Cut the image from the document by pressing Ctrl+X and then save the document.
6. Notice the document size is now 9 KB. Fair enough, since the document is now empty.
7. The most important step: Close the document **and LibreOffice itself**.
8. Open the document again and press Ctrl+V to insert the image you have just cut. Save the document. Notice the document size is now 2 MB. This is because Wirter converted the image to PNG for some reason.
