Just a guess....

Sometimes how the image was placed can make a difference in the size of the file, or even how it was saved can effect file size. If the image was cut and pasted for the clipboard that can drive up the size of the publication file. Other things maybe if you have cropping information stored in the document. Try to limit image manipulation in-line to a minimum. If the art need to be doctored, it should be done outside of the publisher software and then imported exactly as it is to apperar in-line.

One final thing, sometime (I don't necessarily know if this is true for Publisher) using the menu File -> Save As is better then just plain Save or the Save button on the toolbar.

I hope that helped.
