PowerPoint - Reduce File Size

01.01.20  •  #PowerPointTips


Sometimes, the file size of your PowerPoint presentation can get very big. In some cases, that can be annoying, e.g. when trying to send the slides via e-mail, but not being able to do so because the file is too large. Usually, pictures and videos are the reason why presentations become to big. The good news is that this can easily be fixed by following the steps shown in the video and listed below.



  1. Open your presentation. Go to File in the PowerPoint menu.
  2. Click Save as and then Browse
  3. In the window that opens, click on Tools (right beside Save)
  4. Select Compress Pictures and then choose the resolution you need (E-Mail being the lowest, HD being the highest for compression)
  5. Click OK and then Save
