Topic: Stream Objects and Embedded Files

I've created a custom annotation which uses an image (JPEG) for its normal appearance; this image is saved as a stream in the PDF document so multiple annotations can use the same stream....
if later I want to change this image, is there a way to remove this stream physically from the document ?
I know that PDF uses incremental updates, but an image takes a lot of space and would be useful to completely remove it.
Then I've another question for you: my annotation uses data from a file which has to be included in the document...
Can you axplain to me the difference between a simple stream containing this data and an embedded file stream ?
does the second offers something more ?
Thanks in advance
