PowerPoint - Image Compression
Have you created a PowerPoint slide set and while trying to email it you discovered that the file size is huge? This used to happen to me often when I was working with scientific slides that contained a lot of high resolution images. But I found a way to reduce the file size, while still maintaining the crispness of the images.
In PowerPoint there is a feature called Compression which allows you to compress either one image or all images in the slide set. By using this you greatly decrease the file size of your presentation.
Here’s how to do it:
- Highlight the graphic –the Picture Tools Format tab will appear on the menu ribbon. Choose Compress Pictures from the options on the left.
- A window dialogue box will appear asking you if you want to apply this to selected pictures only (if you leave this box unchecked it will compress on graphics in the slide set)
- To be more specific in your compression, click Options to determine the compression output.
Try this the next time you find your PowerPoint presentation file size has gotten enormous.
