What I wrote is:

"However, just as any other data carrier, images not only contain important data, but also such of lesser significance to us. "

I want to say that images not only contain important data, but they also contain data of lesser significance. How can I write it without repeating "contain" and make the whole sentence sound more natural?

  • "images contain important and extraneous data." or even more succinctly: "images contain data." – Ian MacDonald Mar 6 '15 at 18:08

    If all you care about is not repeating the word contain, why not just delete that from "what you want to say" and resequence accordingly? Giving Images contain not only important data, but also data of lesser significance. – FumbleFingers Mar 6 '15 at 18:08

Like any data carrier, however, images contain very important data alongside data of lesser significance.
