  1. Click on an image within your presentation
  2. Select the Picture Format tab
  3. Click the Compress Media button from the first next section next to the Transparency button.
  4. Untick the Apply only to this picture so it will run presentation wide.
  5. Select either web or email settings to compress the images down to size.
  6. Re save your document and it should now be a much smaller size.
