Inserting images into PowerPoint can increase the size of your file heaps. So if you want to shrink the file get PowerPoint to compress the image.
- Click on the image (Well thats pretty obvious 🙂 and resize by dragging corner handles – dragging on the top and side ones will usually give you short fat bunnies or long thin ones).
- Click on the Format tab (Office 2007). On the top left you will see Compress Pictures.. click it and if you click [Ok] all your images will be shrunk.
- You may like to check the file sizes before and after using windows explorer.
- Thanks to Joyce for pointing this out…
