New use for the PowerPoint Picture Compression feature

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

A recent workshop participant asked a question that helped us discover a new use for the resampling feature in PowerPoint. The resampling feature is properly known as the picture compression feature. It allows you to compress high resolution photos so that your PowerPoint file does not get so large. The question that was asked related to another aspect of this feature. It turns out that the deleting of cropped areas feature is exactly what she was looking for.

Compressing PowerPoint files with photos

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

Once again yesterday I saw the power of compressing photos in PowerPoint 2003 (sorry, for those with earlier version this feature isn't in your software). I was working with someone who was doing a presentation for a community group on a recent trip to Africa and almost the entire show was photos the group had taken. They had 66 slides done so far with about 80-90 photos. This was all due to the photos being imported at the high resolution they were taken.

He and I were talking about this in the house after the photo shoot and I had assumed that he was a Photoshop expert user. Turns out he only really knows the eight or so functions that he needs to make photos look amazing. I teach that you don't need to know every feature of PowerPoint, only the ones to be effective at presenting in your role.
