Cool tool: PPT Minimizer

I get a lot of big Power Point files at work. They contain large images/screen shots which has been resized to fit in the slides but Power Point stores the high quality image which occupies a lot of space.

PPTminimizer reduces PowerPoint presentations by up to 96% of their initial size in seconds by optimizing graphics and embedded objects.

My favorite feature is the Microsoft Outlook plugin that can automatically optimize Power Point attachments when you send mails.


  1. Perhaps you know already but there's a built-in feature in PowerPoint 2003.

    When you're saving a presentation clicking on tools->compress pictures you can squeeze the picture you have inside and have a smaller ppt file as a result.

  2. Cool, I didn't know that.

    PPT Minimizer offers higher compression rates (at the cost of reduced image quality) and the Outlook plugin which is pretty useful.
