Often times I see needlessly big PowerPoint presentations. The culprit is often pictures that have been inserted at a higher resolution that needed.
- Right click on one of the pictures in your presentation
- Choose “Format Picture”
- Click on the “Picture” tab
- Click the “Compress” button
- Choose the web/screen setting
- Click Ok
Your done! This technique can dramatically reduce the size of your PowerPoint presentations and make them easier to email. (Note: This doesn’t work for Mac PowerPoint users)
