Reduce the size of your presentation files
Ellen Finkelstein has some suggestions to make your PowerPoint files more manageable.
- Save the file under a new name
- PowerPoint remembers all your actions in a session so that you can undo them. Saving under another name discards this information. For some reason, this works better than closing and opening the same file.
- Convert the image file type
- The image file type makes a huge difference. In my tests of a photo, JPEG files were the smallest by far. (GIF files are also small, but are not suitable for most photographs because they don't support enough colors.) I took an image and Microsoft Office Picture Manager to convert it.
