Power Point File Size

Power Point File Size

Power Point File Size

I just finished a presentation in Power Point, but the file is huge 9.72MB

There are lots of pictures. I have been trying to reduce the file size of the pictures, but still is too big.

Anybody knows a trick or a tip that may help me minimize the size... maybe even software.

Let me know...

Dumboy.....! OUCH!.....OUCH!...again...!

RE: Power Point File Size

May I add that I already try to ZIP the file but it only reduces it about half Meg

Keep them coming....!


RE: Power Point File Size

Are you using 24-bit bitmaps or .tif's?? If so, try using .jpg's or 256 color bitmaps

RE: Power Point File Size

For each picture:

Select it, cut it, hit Edit-Paste special as a picture or enhanced picture. This should reduce the file size considerably.
