Dear Computer Lady,
Hi I have a problem that I am trying to figure out, I created a power point presentation with music and pictures. The size of the file is 53 meg and I can’t figure out how to reduce the size, of course I cannot E-Mail that size of a file.
I receive pps files and they are only 4 meg and that is with the music and pictures.
Any help on how to reduce the size would be appreciated.
Thank You, John
I have not seen your power point presentation, so I can’t be sure, but I am guessing that the problem is with your original pictures and music.
Go back to your picture files and your music that you included in your power point presentation.
If you are using the “Details” view in Windows Explorer, you will be able to see the size of each file. If you are not using the “Details” view, you will still be able to right-click on each file, select “Properties” and view the size of each file.
I’m guessing that you will find that one or more of these items is quite a few megabytes (Mb). These are the files that you will need to reduce in size before including them in your presentation.
I don’t know what programs you have available on your computer to reduce the file size of pictures, but I do have a nice tutorial on my website at: http://wp.me/pwwRq-1gr
Once you have reduced the size of your pictures (make sure to save them with a different file name so you don’t lose your full size pictures) go back to your slideshow and replace the images with the new, smaller ones.
This should make your slideshow small enough to share through email.
