Compress Pictures To Reduce File Size Of PowerPoint 2010

You often need to compress PowerPoint presentations when sharing it via email. If your presentation is full of images, you can try compressing these images to reduce the overall size of the presentation.

Once the picture is inserted in the Presentation then click the Compress Pictures option under Format > Picture Tools.

Now be sure to check the Delete cropped areas of pictures option to reduce the overall size of the presentation. Also select the appropriate target output.

Click OK to complete the configuration.

BREAKTHROUGH! I finally found my answer here: Reduce the size of your PowerPoint files under the heading: Beware the mysterious, unseen element. As it turns out, there was a hidden text box on one of my slides that had no text in it. Why an empty text box would cause the PowerPoint presentation file size to grow so large is beyond me. But when I deleted it, my .ppt file shrunk from 54 MB to 2.8 MB! Amazing.

Thanks to all who responded!

Best Regards!
