This video explains some of the options that are available for reducing the overall file size of a PowerPoint sildeshow, for situations where the file may be too large to share via email or other methods.
- [Instructor] Hi, I'm Garrick Chow,…and welcome to PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…If you're having an issue…where your PowerPoint file is too large,…maybe you're trying to email it to someone…or fit it onto a smaller capacity flash drive,…there are a couple of things you can try…to reduce the overall file size.…I have a PowerPoint file here on my desktop,…and when I right-click on it and select Properties,…I can see here that it's roughly 80 megabytes in size.…Let's open it up.…So this presentation contains a fair number of slides,…and there are several graphics and images on these slides;…and it's your graphics that are the main contributor…to the overall size of your PowerPoint file.…
Fortunately, PowerPoint contains a handy tool…for compressing and optimizing the size of your images.…You can choose to compress single images,…which is useful if you know you have one or two images…that are unnecessarily large.…Maybe you imported an image at a much higher resolution…than you needed, for example.…Or you can compress all the images…
