Optimize, Shrink, or Compress Powerpoint Presentations
After adding images to your Powerpoint presentation, your Powerpoint file (PPT) may become very large. These files are unwieldy. Saving these files to your network storage space can quickly fill your allocation. Therefore, it is important that you make sure you have optimized your Powerpoint presentations prior to saving them to any network drive. In addition when sending these files via email, they will actually expand since email attachments are typically encoded in a format that makes binary files expand. A six megabyte Powerpoint could easily become a ten megabyte file when sent as an attachment.
For typical print, screen viewing or projection, you can remove fine detail and cropped parts of the pictures to reduce the file size. Compressing your Powerpoint files can reduce overall file size by as much as 80% or more! The results are acceptable in all but the most discriminating settings.
