Reducing the Size of PPT with lots of Pictures


#1

I am generating a PowerPoint presentation that will contain lots of picture. They can potentially be 1024x768 in screen resolution. If I understood correctly, I am resizing these images to fit in 576 DPI. These images gets huge, hence a huge PPT document. Is there a way that I can set the DPI of the PowerPoint presentation to less that 576 DPI?

How can I make this document a lot smaller?

You don’t need to resize images. Just set correct coordinates for PictureFrame.

If I understand your problem...

Instead of making Powerpoint do the reduction, convert the image outside of Powerpoint. If you are using Java, try Java Advanced Imaging Toolkit (JAI): http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/jai/iio.html.

Good Luck,
