May I ask for your advice in an urgent matter?
I work on Win95 platform, IBM-compatible computer, and I am learning to
use Corel Draw 7 while trying to complete a brochure for a travel
agency, which needs to get to the printer yesterday.  The problem is,
that I had to scan in several photos of hotels, etc, add some clipart
and graphics, and the file became too big to save it on a floppy disk -
about 21 MB.  Corel Draw offers a Bitmap- and Graphic-Compression, but
the resulting size is still about 8 MB.  I do not have a ZIP-drive or a
ZIP-program (just an unZIP-program, but this is of no help in such a
case).  I also have the Program Photoshop 5, but had no time to learn it
Can anybody please suggest me a method how to compress this file to a
size of 1.3 MB or less, or name me an URL where I can download a
compression program from the Internet (freeware would be best, I
probably do not get more than 200 or 300 $ for all this weeklong work,
but here in Austria freelance commissions are not easy to get)?
Thank you very much for your help.
