Having an image that is too large (that is, too high a dpi) is not a problem quality wise. You
can resize it in PowerPoint to make it as small as you like; just drag its selection handles.
There will be no loss of quality as it gets smaller.
However, as mentioned earlier in the chapter, inserting a picture ﬁ le that is much larger than
necessary can increase the overall size of the PowerPoint ﬁ le, which can become problematic
if you plan to distribute the presentation in a form where space or bandwidth is an issue.
To avoid problems with overly large graphic ﬁ les, you can compress the images to reduce
their resolution and remove any cropped portions. You can do this from within PowerPoint
or with a third-party utility.
