Can I change an external storage file and still have it linked to the database

Post

When I create PDFs from my database, the file sizes are really large.  I have a picture container field and suspect it's mostly due to the file size of the picture that was inserted.  I have the field set to store images externally as open storage.  I've tried opening the stored file and reducing it and saving, but the link breaks.

Is there a way to change the file and keep the link?  I want to batch reduce all the images, but I'm afraid all the links will break.

Thanks
