Interesting problem reg cast library - Macromedia Director Basics

Hai, I am quite new to director now working on a project. I have created an external cast library to handle images alone in my project. I have watched that when i add an 40KB jpeg image the cast library size increases about 500KB.Any method to reduce the size of the library.Why it happens? Please suggest me. Thanks in advance....

    JPEG is a compression algorithm. It's not a file type. When you set
    your bitmap image to be compressed using JPEG compression, you get a
    smaller file. This compressed file is only useful during storage. To
    view the image, it has to be decompressed.

    Director uses it's own method of compressing and storing bitmap images.
    When you import a bitmap image that has been compressed, as you did,
    the file will be decompressed and stored in the cast.

    If you are working with a projector, Director will keep the image in
    that format and use it. If you are working with a Shockwave file, you
    can select to have the image stored as a JPEG so that your download
    will be smaller.
