Because of the many slides you need to create a complete PowerPoint presentation and all the images, graphs, and other icons you may use, presentations tend to be bulky files. This can cause problems when you need to share them with other people as they may be too large to attach to an email. If this is the current problem you find yourself in, what you need is to compress the PowerPoint file. So this article will share with you two ways to compress a PowerPoint. This way, you can make the file a lot smaller and, therefore, easily sharable across all media.
The best way to reduce the overall size of a PowerPoint file is to compress all the images in the document. Follow these simple steps to do that:
Open the PowerPoint presentation and then click on on any image on any slide. Then click the "Format" > “Compress Pictures” option.
Now, a dialogue box will pop up. To apply the compression to all images, uncheck the “Apply only to this picture” option. Besides, you can click on the “Email (96 ppi)” or "Web(150 ppi)" option depending on what you need, and finally click "OK".
The PowerPoint file will now be much smaller and easily shareable.
Another way to reduce the size of a PowerPoint file is to use Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor. This is a feature-rich PDF editing program that you can use to create, convert, and edit PDF in numerous ways, including optimizing a PowerPoint document. Before we share with you how you can optimize a PowerPoint document, we thought we’d share with you some of the program’s features so that you can get a clear idea of how the program works. These features include the following:
Drag and drop the PowerPoint presentation into PDFelement to open. Alternatively, you can also click on “Open File” to select the presentation.
To reduce the overall size of the presentation, click on “File” > “Optimize” and then choose the level of optimization you would like to use.
Save the changes you have made and then click “Convert” > “To PPT.” Choose the output folder in the dialogue box that opens, and then click “Save.”
Keep in mind that you can use PDFelement to edit the document in many ways before conversion. You may therefore want to take advantage of the wide array of editing features to add and remove the content as needed before optimizing the file.
