Floptical bunnyInserting 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.

  1. Click on the image (Well thats pretty obvious ­čÖé┬á and resize by dragging corner handles – dragging on the top and side ones will usually give you short fat bunnies or long thin ones).
  2. 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.
  • ┬áNotes:
    • You may like to check the file sizes before and after using windows explorer.
    • Thanks to Joyce for pointing this out…
