Your Powerpoint Presentation is So Big that…

Often times I see needlessly big PowerPoint presentations. The culprit is often pictures that have been inserted at a higher resolution that needed.

The Fix

  1. Right click on one of the pictures in your presentation
  2. Choose “Format Picture”
  3. Click on the “Picture” tab
  4. Click the “Compress” button
  5. Choose the web/screen setting
  6. 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)

  1. Wait, wait, so a Mac can’t do that? I thought they were the bestest?
