Unfortunately, when you “Send As Email” it doesn’t compress the file; this is how to compress a PowerPoint for emailing.
Compress ALL your images
Figure: Go to the File menu
Figure: Select Options
Figure: Apply settings. You may compress this further down to 96ppi if you must.
Compress individual images (not recommended)
Figure: Find the Image Compression option
Figure: Apply these settings and go for a coffee break. This may take a long time, depending on how many slides you have.
Compress font - ONLY DO THIS WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED EDITING
Figure: Apply these settings. Once you remove the font, you’re more likely to get missing font bugs when editing the file, so only do this step when you are done.
Save as "YourFileName_compressed.pptx." Do not override your original. You should always keep a high-res master of any media document.
Your own mileage may vary.
Figure: We've compressed this particular file down by 50%!
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
