PowerPoint presentations are large files. These files can be a problem if you are emailing them to students/colleagues who are using free email accounts.
There is a way to compress the pictures and to reduce file size.
When you save the PPT presentation, try the following:
Click the File button / Save As
The following window displays / this is the bottom section of the dialog box
Click Tools / Compress Pictures...
Click Screen (150 ppi) this is the default for ppt presentations
Compressing images will reduce the size of the file.
Once these options are saved, they are retained in memory.
