And what if somebody?for whatever reason?moves the pictures? Disk space  
or not, it is far better to have the pictures embedded within the  
actual document. That way, if someone wants to move the source pictures  
around, let them. You've got the ones you need within the document.  
This is also better for collaborative work, as all the needed elements  
are right there and there is no need for the system to search them out  
in order to rebuild the document, because they are all right there  
within the document itself.
