Reducing Resolution and Compressing Images in PowerPoint
Reducing Resolution and Compressing Images in PowerPoint
PowerPoint offers an image compression utility that compresses all of the pictures in the
presentation in a single step and reduces their resolution to the amount needed for the
type of output you specify (e-mail, Screen, or Print).
Picture resolution is measured in PowerPoint in pixels per inch, or ppi. This roughly trans-
lates to dots per inch (dpi) on a printout. A computer screen shows 96 pixels per inch, so
you do not need higher resolution than that if you are only showing your presentation on-
screen. However, if you are distributing the presentation in other forms, a higher resolu-
tion might be appropriate.
To reduce resolution and compress images, do the following:
1. Click a picture so that the Picture Tools Format tab appears.
2. Choose Picture Tools Format
Compress Pictures. The Compress
Pictures dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 11.28.
