How much space is occupied on the partition from which the image was made? If the original partition has a lot of occupied space, you have limited choices.
If you want to reduce the space taken up by the image you could:
1: use a higher compression ratio in the imaging program, if available
2: try another imaging program
3: reduce the number of partitions contained in the image
4: reduce the occupied space in the partitions in the image before you make the image.
The image is just another file and should not affect your laptop performance unless the drive on which the image is stored is now very near full capacity--at least 90%.
