Reduce the file size of your PowerPoint presentations

If the file size of your presentation is too large, try the following tips to make it more manageable.

Compress pictures in your presentation

Select a picture in your document. The Picture Format tab appears.

On the Picture Format tab, in the Adjust group, select Compress Pictures .

Under Compression options , do any of the following:

Make sure that Apply only to this picture is not selected so that the changes you make here will apply to all pictures in the document.

Select Delete cropped areas of pictures . This option removes the cropped picture data but note that if you delete the cropped picture data, you won't be able to restore it.

Under Resolution , select Use default resolution .

Compress Pictures

Under Compression options , do either of the following:

Select Delete cropped areas of pictures . This option removes the cropped picture data but note that if you delete the cropped picture data, you won't be able to restore it.

Compress Pictures options

Delete image editing data and lower default resolution

By default, when you edit an image, the data from the original is retained (to ensure the image can be restored). Discarding it means that you can't restore the changes you make, but it will reduce your file size. Lowering the default resolution for images also reduces your overall file size.

Go to File > Options > Advanced .

Under Image Size and Quality , do the following:

Select Discard editing data . This option removes stored data that's used to restore the image to its original state after it's been edited. Note that if you discard editing data, you won't be able to restore the image after you edit it.

Make sure that Do not compress images in file is not selected.

Set the image size and quality

Reduce the character set of embedded fonts

To make your presentation more sharable with others who don't have the same fonts in their system, it's typical to embed the fonts you use. However, embedded fonts will increase your file size. To minimize the file increase, embed only those characters used in the presentation.

Go to File > Options > Save .

Embed fonts in the file

Note:  If you've used custom fonts and want others to edit the presentation, select Embed all characters .

Considering that Microsoft PowerPoint presentations are generally accompanied with tons of images, gifs , embedded videos , charts , graphs, and other content, it’s no surprise that you get some pretty big files. Here are a few steps you can take to reduce a presentation’s file size.

Large files can be annoying. They take up loads of precious disk space, slow down playback performance, and can cause emails to bounce back due to exceeding the file size limit. You can prevent all of these things by reducing the file size of your presentation.

We’ve mentioned it before, but the first thing you’d think of when considering file size reduction is images—and for a good reason. Image files can be quite large. There are steps you can take to reduce the size, such as compressing the images in the presentation. If you suspect the reason your PowerPoint file is so large is due to images, then be sure to read the article we’ve written on how to reduce the size of Office documents that contain images .

RELATED: How to Reduce the Size of a Microsoft Word Document

We do have some additional tips to add if you followed these steps but still need to reduce your presentation’s file size.

Convert Your Presentation to the PPTX Format

Microsoft released the PPTX format in Office 2007. Still, it’s not uncommon to see PPT files floating around. So what’s the difference between a PPT and PPTX  file? The PPTX version compresses all of the content within the presentation. If you have a PPT file and convert it into a PPTX file, you’ll notice a decrease in the file size.

Converting the file is as simple as pressing a button and choosing the file type. Go ahead and open your PPT file, head over to the “File” tab, and then click “Convert.”

Convert presentation

Windows File Explorer will appear. You’ll notice the Save As type is set as “PowerPoint Presentation.” This is the PPTX file type. Click “Save.”

Save as type

Your PPT file will now be converted to a PPTX file. As you can see, the size of the file has been reduced.

reduced file example

HTG Presentation 2 is our PPT file, and HTG Presentation 3 is our PPTX file. Merely converting the file type reduced the size by 335 KB.

While this isn’t a breathtaking drop in file size, we managed to reduce a Word document file size from 6,001 KB to 721 KB. It all depends on what’s inside the file. With any luck, this will be the only step you need to take. If not, keep reading.

Insert Your Pictures—Don’t Copy and Paste

It’s tempting to copy and paste an image in PowerPoint instead of using the insert function. This won’t be an issue if you’re not concerned about file size, but if you are, then beware of copy and paste—it may reformat your image to BMP or PNG. Why is this an issue? Both of those file formats are larger than JPG.

png to jpg conversion size difference

You can see in the above screenshot that the PNG file is 153KB compared to the 120KB JPG file of the same image. Each time you copy and paste a JPG file to PowerPoint, and it gets converted to PNG, you’re adding a bit of unnecessary file size to the presentation. Using the insert function will ensure your images are inserted as intended.

Do Image Edits in an Image Editor—Not in PowerPoint

When you insert an image in PowerPoint, it’s best to make sure that it doesn’t need any edits. If it does require edits, you’re better off doing it in an image editor. Why? When you use PowerPoint to edit your image, it stores all of those edits as part of the presentation. For example, when you change an image to black and white, PowerPoint retains the full-color image as well. That’s a lot of extra bites being stored.

If you don’t have an image editor ( you do ) or you simply must use PowerPoint, be sure to tell PowerPoint to discard all of that excess data saved from the edits . It won’t save you as much space as working in a dedicated editor, but it will help.

Compress All of the Images in Your Presentation

You can compress images in PowerPoint one at a time or all at once. If you’re looking to do the latter, here’s how.

Open your presentation, head over to the “File” tab, and then select “Save As” in the left-hand pane.

select save as option

Next, select “More Options,” which you’ll find under the area where you would name your file and choose the file type.

More Options in Save as tab

The “Save As” window will appear—this time with a few extra options available to you. Next to the “Save” button, click “Tools.”

Tools in save as dialogue box

In the drop-down menu that appears, select “Compress Pictures.”

Compress pictures option in tools

The “Compress Pictures” window will appear. Here, you can choose the resolution type of the images (based on PPI) in the presentation. You’ll also notice that you’re not able to select the “Apply only to this picture” option in the “Compression Options” group. That’s because, due to the way we accessed this tool, this option isn’t available.

Note:  If you do want to compress a single picture, select it and then head to Picture Tools Format > Compress Pictures.

Once you’re happy with your selection, click “OK.”

compress pictures window

Be sure to save your presentation afterward.

Don’t Use Embedded Fonts

We get why you might want to embed fonts—you might be making a Star Wars themed presentation and, as a result, anyone you may be sharing the presentation with is not likely to have those special fonts available to them. Embedding the fonts in your presentation could prevent issues down the line, but it comes at the cost of increased file sizes.

In general, unless you are sure you need to display a particular font, we recommend turning off font embedding.

Head over to the “File” tab and select “Options” at the bottom of the left-hand pane.

Options at bottom of lefthand pane

On the “Save” tab, untick the “Embed fonts in the file” checkbox and then click “OK.”

uncheck embed fonts box

We saved a copy of our presentation with all fonts embedded, without fonts embedded, and with only the fonts used in the presentation embedded. Look at the difference if file sizes:

Convinced yet?

Link to Files Instead of Embedding Them

Consider the difference in file size if you embed an entire YouTube video in your presentation instead of linking back to it. Embedding an entire video will significantly increase the size of your presentation. There are certainly some valuable benefits when embedding a file vs. linking to it (such as when the recipient might not have internet access to play the video), but if the file size is an issue, just don’t do it.

Don’t Store a Thumbnail for the Presentation

Way back when Office let you save thumbnail images of your presentation so that you could get a sneak preview of the file when searching for it in File Explorer. Windows has grown to be more sophisticated, so it no longer requires the help of Office applications to do this. But, the option is still available.

We ran a little test to see the difference in file size with and without this option enabled. Here are the results:

don't save thumbnail

With the thumbnail option enabled, our file size was 2,660 KB. Without the option enabled, the file size was reduced to 2,662 KB, saving a total of 7 KB.

This is a pretty small save, but when we tested it with a Word document, the difference was significant, showing 721 KB without the option enabled, and 3,247 KB with the option enabled.

While this is a large gap between applications and it’s not exactly clear why the difference is so large, it’s still an option worth exploring. To disable the feature, open your presentation, head over to the “File” tab, and then select “Properties” found on the right-hand side, then “Advanced Properties.”

select properties

You’ll now be in the “Summary” tab of the “Properties” window. At the bottom of the window, uncheck the box next to “Save preview picture,” and then click “OK.”

uncheck save preview image

Remove Personal and Hidden Information from Your Presentation

Microsoft Office will store your personal information (such as author name) and hidden properties within your presentation. Getting rid of this information can save you a bit of space.

Open your presentation, head over to the “File” tab, select the “Check for Issues” option, then select “Inspect Document.”

Inspect Document

The “Document Inspector” window will appear. Make sure the “Document Properties and Personal Information” box is checked, and then click “Inspect.”

Inspect the document

In the next window, select “Remove All.” The information will now be removed, saving you a few KB of space.

Turn Off AutoRecover

We don’t necessarily recommend this, and it should only be used as a last resort effort. AutoRecover is an essential tool in Office, and if you’ve ever lost a document before saving, then you understand precisely what we mean.

Each time Office uses AutoRecover, it adds a little to the size of the file. To turn AutoRecover off, head over to the “File” tab and select “Options” found at the bottom of the left-hand pane.

Options at bottom of lefthand pane

In the “Save” tab of the “Options” window, uncheck the box next to “Save AutoRecover information ever xx minutes.”

uncheck autorecover option

If you save and exit out of the presentation immediately, you won’t notice a difference. Over time though, as you continue to progress through the presentation, the AutoRecover feature will add KB to your file.

Copy Everything Into a New Presentation

While you’re creating your presentation, PowerPoint will save various things in the background to help you out. We’ve mentioned how to turn off a lot of these features, delete data PowerPoint saves, and so on, but there’s always a chance something slipped through the cracks, and PowerPoint stored some information you don’t need. Copying your content over to a new presentation may be a good solution to the problem.

This may be a bit of a hassle though as, with PowerPoint, you’ll need to copy and paste each slide (and master slides). Once you do though, the new presentation won’t have any of the previous background saves, AutoRecover information, or previous versions of the file. As a result, you should see a change in file size.

While we can’t tell you exactly how much this will reduce your file size since each presentation will be different, it’s worth a shot.

A Possibility: Unzip the Presentation and Compress It

As we mentioned earlier, a PPTX file is a compressed file (which is why the size is much smaller than an old-school PPT file). This means you can open it with a tool such as 7-Zip or WinRar, extract all the files from your PPTX, add them to a compressed archive, and then rename the archive to a PPTX file extension.

We had some issues here, though.

In Rob’s testing with his Word document, it successfully reduced the size of the file from 721 KB to 72 KB. However, it corrupted the file in the process. In my testing with my 2,614 KB file, it didn’t corrupt it, but it only reduced it to 2,594KB—a total of only 20 KB. We’re unsure what’s at play here, so if you want to give this a go, be sure to have a backup copy of your file before doing so.

That’s all the tips we’ve got for reducing the size of your PowerPoint presentation. We’re always looking for new and interesting ways to reduce the size of our files, so if you have any tips, let us know in the comment section, and we’ll be happy to test them out!

PowerPoint Slide Size report


The most common PowerPoint slide ratios are "4:3" and "16:9". In previous versions of PowerPoint, the slide size was 4:3, widescreen, and high-definition formats have been adapted for TV and video. The default slide size in new versions of PowerPoint is widescreen (16:9). And the PowerPoint slide size can be changed by the following method.

The PowerPoint slide size also needs to be adjusted to cover the entire screen for different monitors and devices. You can often see some special proportions of slides at the press conference. In this case, [Custom Slide Size] is used. The following post will explain different PowerPoint Slide sizes and change them.

PowerPoint Slide Size Guide

Whether you are preparing your presentation for a class or your work, you should adapt it to the device which will be used for projecting it. Some devices or even laptops can have different sizes, so you will need to change the dimensions of your presentation. To change the size of your presentation slides, on the Design tab, in the Customize group, click the Slide Size button and then choose one of the pre-defined sizes.

PPT Slides Sizes

Common PowerPoint Slide Sizes

4:3 is best viewed on a standard computer screen, while the 16:9 is best viewed on a widescreen computer screen or TV. Using the proper dimensions ensures the presentation is scaled suitably not to appear warped. Widescreen is the default in most versions of PowerPoint.

Custom PowerPoint Slide Size

Using a custom PowerPoint slide size is possible if the default 4:3 or 16:9 options are unsuitable. You might choose to use a custom slide size if you are printing full-size PowerPoint slides using a custom page layout, for instance. To do this, select Design > Slide Size > Custom Slide Size to display the "Slide Size" options menu.

Custom PowerPoint Slide Size

You can run your slideshow on a computer screen, a television screen, or a projector. It is best to know your display device upfront. It would be best to change your slide dimensions before designing your slides before adding shapes and images to slides. Changing the dimensions afterward is possible, but it can ruin your slide design. If pictures are distorted, you will need to manually resize each image or delete them and insert them again.

Cheat Death by PowerPoint!

What size should my slides be, 16:9 or 4:3?

July 3, 2017 by Laura Foley 2 Comments

Deciding on a slide format used to be easy when there was only one choice. Nowadays, you can choose between 4:3 format or 16:9. What do these numbers mean and which size should you choose for your presentations?

What the numbers mean

The above notation is called the “aspect ratio,” or the ratio of the width to the height of the slide. In the 4:3 aspect ratio, the dimensions are 1024 x 768 pixels (10.67″ x 8″); the height is 3/4 of the width. Back in the Ye Olde Days of PowerPoint, it was your only choice. Why? Because that’s the aspect ratio of actual slides, pictured above, television screens, and early computer monitors.

When high-definition screens came on the scene in the early 2000s, they were built in a 16:10 aspect ratio. But as more and more high-definition screens were manufactured, it became clear that screens with a 16:9 aspect ratio were cheaper to manufacture. So the 16:9 aspect ratio (1920 x 1080 pixels or 13.3″ x 7.5″) became the new standard.

What size should you choose?

From boardrooms to computer monitors to smartphone screens, 16:9 is the default screen aspect ratio so that’s the slide size I always go with. The 16:9 format gives you a lot of slide real estate to play around with! The legacy 4:3 aspect ratio, while still used, creates smaller slides and doesn’t look that great on newer screens.

How do you change an old 4:3 deck to the new 16:9 format?

Oh, this is super-fun to do and you’re a lucky duck if it becomes your job.

To resize your slides go to the Design tab on the ribbon and select Slide Size/Widescreen on the right side of the screen.

slide size

After you select the new size, this window will appear:

Slide scaling window

Now you’re faced with either everything on the slides being stretched out or squished to fill the space. Oh boy! Either way, after you make your selection you’ll need to go through the presentation slide by slide to ensure that everything looks good. This can be fairly straightforward if the creator of the presentation stayed within the template or a real pain in the rear if he/she didn’t. But do go through the deck to ensure that everything looks right.

If you’re a production artist that charges by the hour, reformatting an organization’s slides from 4:3 to 16:9 could be a nice little gig for you!

Other slide sizes for special events

Now, the 16:9 format is great for everyday use but what if you’re designing a presentation for an event? Last year, I was designing slides for a corporate conference where the setup included multiple, massive screens. For that event, the slides measured 52″ x 17″ and had a “leave this space blank” area on the bottom. Each event is different, so if you’re working on slides like these you need to become friends with the AV folks and find out what size slides they recommend for optimal viewing on that particular setup. The last thing you want to see on a gigantic stage are distorted graphics!

Bottom line

Unless you’re told otherwise, use the 16:9 format. You get a lot more space on each slide for your visuals and it’s really the way things are going.

Why you need a perfect PowerPoint slide size

An excellent presentation helps you convey your ideas perfectly while keeping your audience engaged. PowerPoint, in that scenario, comes as a handy tool. It is a highly customizable tool that you can use to your benefits and create impressive presentations. But choosing the right PowerPoint slide dimensions as per the need is crucial.

How to design a PowerPoint Presentation with Designhill?

Designing a presentation with Designhill is just a matter of a few clicks. Once you have decided to create a presentation, go ahead, and explore Designhill's presentation templates . The pre-created templates simplify the whole process for you.

You can pick any of the templates — financial reports, growth reports, etc. and start customizing it. If that’s not what you want, don’t worry, you’ll always have the flexibility to create a presentation from scratch. Custom tailor any part of your template by changing the font, text, graph, chart, etc. Always choose the right PowerPoint size to eliminate the risk of your presentation being chopped off.

PowerPoint Slide Size Best Practices

Keep your powerpoint slide simple.

There are basically two orientations in PPT presentation — horizontal and vertical. Choose one that better suits your specific requirements and keep it simple. Make sure it has plenty of white spaces or negative spaces.

Limit the use of bullet points and text

The primary purpose of your presentation is to provide benefits to your audience while conveying your message. But that doesn't mean you should bore them with bullet points one after another and a lot of text. Have a balanced approach for effective presentation.

Limit animations and transitions

Do not use object animations and transitions superfluously. Stick to the most subtle animations if required.

Use high-quality images

You can purchase high-quality graphics from various platforms or use your own clicked photographs. Avoid using the in-built PowerPoint clipart images as they look kiddish. Using professional graphics is the best option for a professional presentation.

Use relevant charts

How much detail do you need? Keep asking this question again and again. Based on the needs, add graphs and charts that are most appropriate for your PowerPoint slide size. Some of the charts that you can consider adding are — pie charts, vertical bar charts, line charts, horizontal bar charts, etc.

Use appropriate colors

Colors are associated with feelings. While specific colors evoke feelings, some force the audience to think otherwise. It means whether it's your annual report presentation or a product presentation, using appropriate colors is essential. Use cool colors for backgrounds and warm colors for objects. Using brand-specific colors is also considered a good practice.

Pick the right size fonts

Fonts are used to convey subtle messages. That's the reason your presentation should have suitable fonts. Use the same font family throughout your slides to avoid the distraction of the communication gap.

PowerPoint Slide Mistakes to Avoid

Some of the most common powerpoint slide mistakes that you can avoid are:, putting too much text.

Adding too much text to a single PPT slide is nothing less than a cardinal sin. Putting too much text makes the audience uncomfortable, as it's hard for them to read it. Add aesthetically striking visuals to engage them not to shoo them away.

Avoid too much clutter

Human eyes have tendencies to seek simplicity naturally. If your PowerPoint slide includes excessive text and graphics, it may overwhelm your viewers and distract them. Prioritize simplicity and stay clear-off unwanted text/graphics.

Avoid bad contrast

Be it a newspaper, magazine, or a book, these all use black text with a white background. This is the most-used combination that pleases the eye. Your PowerPoint slide should also follow this formula for increased readability.

Superfluous animations and transitions

Animations, as well as transitions, are great to add a punch to your PPT slide. But using them excessively isn't good. They distract the audience and smash their interest.

Ignoring the size

The PowerPoint slide size changes as per your needs or purpose. When you do not choose the right size, the images, or the edges of your presentation get chipped off.

PowerPoint size

What should my PowerPoint Presentation Slide look like?

Here are some of the most effective ideas for your powerpoint slide —.

It should inform your audience — the purpose of a PowerPoint presentation slide is to inform the viewers. If you are going to talk about the features of a product or present a financial report, it should clearly convey that message.

It should be aesthetically appealing — just because it's a financial report presentation doesn't mean it has to be boring. Your PowerPoint presentation slide should be aesthetically sound. It should include all the design elements right from fonts to colors and graphics in a balanced way.

Display products and its USPs — if the presentation is all about a product, then it should display various images of the product. It should also cite the benefits and advantages that customers will get after buying it.

Where can you find the best presentation templates?

A PowerPoint presentation without an image or graphics is mundane. It ends up making the audience feel bored. So, to help you out, Designhill has come up with hundreds of professionally designed presentation templates. Each of these has a pre-defined structure and design elements. Based on your needs, you can customize them or use as it is. 

Besides, there are many other platforms such as Canva, Adobe Spark, etc. that you can use to source pre-designed presentation templates.

You're in good company: Zamzar has converted over 510 million files since 2006

Why compress ppt files.

PPT also goes by the name of PowerPoint Presentation and are used in all walks of life including the home, school and at work. PPT files can range in size depending on the content of the presentation. If a presentation contains a lot of images or videos then the file size can be especially large. Even just one high resolution image - such as a BMP - can increase the size of a PPT file tenfold. When a user complains that they have run out of space in their mailbox it is typically because they've been sent one too many large presentations. It is not surprising then that there is such a need to compress PPT files so that they do not take up as much storage and can be more easily shared. Using the Zamzar PPT compression tool, individual (and sizeable) elements - such as pictures and videos - are compressed bringing the overall file size down. Once compressed, the PPT (including the images and video within it) does not suffer from any noticeable loss in quality despite the file size being shrunk. It's worth remembering that if you receive a PPT file and need to send it on you can always put it through the Zamzar compression tool before you do so.

Intro compress PowerPoint files

Are you wondering " why is my PowerPoint file too large ?"

PowerPoint presentations can easily increase in size over time. As you're adding more video, images, audio, and slides, the file size will increase as well. 

I've often found myself hitting my email attachment limit when sending PowerPoint presentations to others. I could  put it in a Dropbox share or upload it online, but the real problem is that the presentation should be downsized first.

Luckily, there are some good techniques that'll help you reduce the size of your presentation files. In this tutorial, I'll walk you through several tips and tricks to reduce your PowerPoint file size.

Learn these skills to help reduce the size of your PowerPoint files—your clients and collaborators just might thank you for it.

Quick Ways to Reduce Your PowerPoint File Size  ( Watch & Learn)

In this quick video, I'll teach you my techniques to reduce PowerPoint file sizes. I'll walk you through, step-by-step, several tips that help you compress and optimize your PowerPoint presentations. These tips will help you trim a file before you share it with others.

How to Reduce You PowerPoint File Size 

Miss any of the tips in the video, or prefer a written version of these steps? Check out the instructions below to find out more about how to reduce your PowerPoint file size.

Learn all about compression techniques and other ways to quickly shrink your PowerPoint PPT file size down. Before we get started, the template I've chosen to work with in this tutorial is ga-analytics#sendElementsClickEvent">Agio PowerPoint Presentation from Envato Elements. It's a premium template with some great features I think you'll really enjoy.

Agio PowerPoint Template

Now, let's learn how to reduce your PowerPoint file size:

1. Compress Selected Pictures in PPT File

Images are easily one of the largest parts of most PowerPoint presentations. Compressing them can decrease the size of your PowerPoint file.

Often, I find myself pasting images into a presentation from all over the web, on my computer, and using built-in graphics. As I'm doing this, I'm often bringing large image files into my PowerPoint without thinking of how the file size affects my PowerPoint file. That can make for a quick and fluid design process. But it'll leave you with some cleanup needed.

To get started with image compression, select an image inside of your PowerPoint PPT file. On the ribbon, you'll see a Picture Format tab. Click on this tab, and then find the Compress Pictures option.

After you've selected the Compress Pictures option in PowerPoint, you'll see a new pop-up menu to tweak the compression settings for the selected image.

Compress selected photos PowerPoint

On this menu, there are two key settings to double check:

Compress selected pictures PowerPoint

If you've got several key, large images that you want to compress, use this feature as a starting point to downsize your presentation file.

2. Compress All Pictures in Your PowerPoint

Now that we've learned the value of compressing images, let's learn how to batch compress every image in a presentation.

Once again, we’ll be working on the Compress Pictures menu. With an image selected, go to Picture Format > Compress Pictures . On this menu, the option reads Apply to: All pictures in this file. This has the same effect and will downsize your images.

Compress all photos PowerPoint

3. Save Your PowerPoint in a .zip File

Once you’ve saved your PowerPoint slides, it helps to compress them into .zip files. This is a built-in feature on Mac, and it’s very useful if you want to share your PPT slide decks with others.

When you save your file, navigate to the folder where it is contained. Right-click on the file, and you’ll see a dropdown menu appear with an array of options. The one you’re looking for is labeled Compress , followed by the name of your file.

Save as PowerPoint as Zip

Click on it, and macOS will package your PowerPoint file into a compressed .zip file. This streamlines sharing by reducing your PowerPoint file size. 

4. Link to Videos in Your Presentation

Many presentations will include video files to add some variety to the presentation. But how you add them will really affect the size of your finished PowerPoint file. Another option to shrink your PowerPoint file size is to link to multimedia objects, instead of embedding them inside of the file.

To begin inserting a video on your computer into your PowerPoint file, go to the Insert tab on the ribbon and click on Video > Movie from File.

In PowerPoint, there are really two ways to include video files in your presentation:

Both of these options will place a video on the PowerPoint canvas, but in very different ways. Inserting the video will include it as a part of the PowerPoint file. It's actually bundled inside of the PowerPoint file. So, you can send it to anyone and the video will play.

To link to the video, browse to where the video file is stored. Click the Options button in the lower left corner and choose Link to File to insert the video inside of your PowerPoint file.

Linke to video file PowerPoint

Linking to the video references the original file and simply links to it. Basically, you're creating a reference to the video file instead of adding it to your presentation file.

Insert video file PowerPoint

Ideally, your video is hosted somewhere online, like YouTube. So, you neither have to embed the video in your PowerPoint file, or link to it on your computer. 

5. Use the Insert Tab to Add Photos

Photos are the best way to bring your PowerPoint slides to life. But if you need to reduce PPT file size, sometimes they can cause you trouble.

But that doesn’t mean you should leave photos out of your slide decks. You can use a different technique to add them to your slides and enjoy smaller file sizes.

When you use a PPT template, you may find that you can drag and drop images right onto your slides. This is the easiest - and fastest - way to add photos to your slides. But it also has a cost in file size.

Images that you drag and drop onto slides aren’t compressed at all. For one or two images, this doesn’t matter. But if you've got a fully illustrated deck, your file size can quickly get out of control.

How to reduce PowerPoint file size

To help with this, try using PowerPoint’s Insert tab to add photos.

Working on a slide, go to Insert up on the ribbon. Then, choose Pictures > Picture From File . Browse to a photo that you've saved. Click Insert to add it to your slide.

This way, PowerPoint compresses and reduces the size of any photos that you add to your slide deck.

6. Share PPT Slides in PDF Format

Let’s face it. PowerPoint slides are built for sharing. That means that you need to know how to reduce PowerPoint file size at every opportunity.

At the same time, you need those who you share slides with to be able to read and view them on any device. Fortunately, these two goals can be easily accomplished at the same time.

By saving a PPT deck as a PDF file, you can see how to compress PowerPoint file size fast. Plus, PDF files can be read on almost any device. They also take up less file space than a .ppt or .pptx file. They display your slides without the format settings that PowerPoint adds.

Reduce PPT file size

When you click Save As to save your slide deck, choose PDF from the File Format dropdown. In moments, your slide deck will be in a versatile, minimally-sized format that you can share far and wide.

7. Reduce Embedded Characters

When you think about how to compress PowerPoint file size, fonts are a big part of it. You may use custom fonts in your work, and you need to be sure that other users can see them. That’s true even if they don’t have the fonts installed on their computer.

Fortunately, there’s an easy fix. This helps you reduce PPT file size fast. Working in PowerPoint, go to the PowerPoint > Preferences menu on the macOS menu bar. Under Output and Sharing , click Save .

By default, PPT embeds fonts so that they’re always visible. But using this setting can make your PowerPoint files larger.

How to compress PowerPoint file size

Check the box next to Embed Fonts in the File , and finally check Embed Only the Characters Used in the Presentation.

Now, by default, when you save PPT decks with custom fonts, they won’t take up much extra file space. This is how to reduce PowerPoint file size quickly.

8. Use Charts and Embedded Objects as Images

PowerPoint offers a variety of ways to pull in extra data on your spreadsheets. These can include Excel charts, graphs, and much more. But by linking data in this way, you may find yourself working with very large files.

How to reduce PowerPoint file size images

Remember, illustrations like this display data. Their ability to update from the source is useful, but it increases PowerPoint file size. Instead of adding live-updating charts, try adding screenshots or image versions instead. By changing charts and objects to images, you can save file space immediately.

Once you've got the images saved, add them to your slides with the Insert menu. This saves space over dragging and dropping.

presentation ppt size

Overall, PowerPoint is an amazing product. It is user-friendly and easy to use, but with advanced functions that are necessary to make truly professional presentations.

If you want to create a presentation as quickly as possible, without much effort and time spent, then pay attention to PowerPoint presentation templates from TemplateMonster. These are original and unique templates for different purposes and projects.

The same PowerPoint file will be displayed differently on each device, as the aspect ratio may vary. Therefore, again, TemplateMonster offers templates that adapt to the size of the screen.

PowerPoint gives the possibility to change the size of the slides for any purpose. Most often, users change the current format to portrait or landscape. This is very easy to do. First, we will tell you how to change the standard PowerPoint slide size. So:

Here is the example:

The customization of PowerPoint slide dimensions

Next, we would like to share with you a quick guide on how to set up the exact dimensions for your slides. To do this, you need to take some similar actions that were specified above, namely:

monsterone powerpoint bundle

slide size click ok

After resizing PowerPoint slides, be sure to check everything, and make certain that the elements of the presentation are within its scope. Keep yourself out of trouble.

The PowerPoint slide is both a normal page (absolute values measured in centimeters) and a screen form (values measured in pixels). You can specify the height and width of the slide in inches, centimeters, and pixels. For PowerPoint slide size pixels, you need to specify the desired size and add “px” in the column with numbers. If you want to specify the size in inches you must add “in,” and if centimeters then “cm.” PowerPoint then converts the sizes (if it is necessary) into the type of units used by the operating system.

We would also like to clarify that the PowerPoint slide sizes in pixels can be 1366 x 768; 1280 x 720; 1024 x 600; 640 x 480.  The larger the size - the better the quality.
