The use of 'doc' types files is not recommended because this a  proprietary format.

Image file sizes are restricted to 100KB.
Document and audio files are limited to 1 megabyte.


It is recommended that you to set the resolution of the image to 72dpi. Pictures off digital cameras are usually at a much higher resolution which is a waste on a computer monitor.
