Compressing File Size
When you add a picture
to a presentation,
PowerPoint automatically
compresses this image.
Even with this compression
applied, a presentation
that contains pictures
usually has a large i le
size. To reduce this size,
you can compress a picture
further without affecting
the quality of how it
displays on the slide.
To compress a picture,
select the picture and
then click the Compress
Pictures button (Picture
Tools Format tab | Adjust
group). You can restore
the picture’s original
settings by clicking the
Reset Picture button
(Picture Tools Format tab |
Adjust group).
In addition to clip art, you can insert pictures into a presentation. These may include
scanned photographs, line art, and artwork from storage media, such as USB l ash drives,
hard disks, optical discs, and memory cards. To insert a picture into a presentation, the
picture must be saved in a format that PowerPoint can recognize. Table 1–1 identii es
some of the formats PowerPoint recognizes.
