Compress Pictures
Image and picture files can be very large. When you insert them into your presentation, your
PowerPoint file also becomes large. This can slow the performance of your slide show presentation
as well as performance while designing your presentation. You can improve performance by
compressing image files, which has little impact on their quality. PowerPoint gives you the ability to
determine how much compression occurs, thereby determining how much the compression affects the
quality of the image. Compressing pictures permanently changes the images — you cannot reverse
those changes.
