    Your flexability with power point is limited and the bulk is inherant to PP files. I believe there are a few options for compression, but nothing that really makes them practical for the Internet over a dial-up connection. At least not w/o sacrificing the PP presentation and defeating the purpose of creating PP filles in the first place.

    One alternative might be to Zip the entire presentation and offer it for downloading / viewing offline, depending on how important it is for your target audience to view the presentation. Of course, to do so the user must have PP installed on their computer to view the presentation, so I assume you have an audience that you're familier with and know they have the ability to view PP files.

    Using Flash could give you an alternative to make your presentation display similar to PP and make the presentation more Internet friendly (file size and compatability). That's about all I can think of to tell you. Maybe someone else will have some other solutions as I've really only used Power Point to create workplace safety and anti shoplifting presentations to be displayed to employees using a projector....never really used it for Internet presentations.

    A couple things which can significantly reduce powerpoint file size:

    If you haven't already done so, you might want to consider disabling Fast Saves (Tools/Options/Save):



    You might also want to consider linking to image files rather than embedding them in the powerpoint file:



    Of course, you'd want to make sure you keep the image files with your powerpoint when you move it to your web server.

    Bluemonkey,

    If you have uploaded any of your PP files to your hosting server, could you post a link to ne of them? I'd be interested to see the complexity, size, and type of content of the PP files we're talking about .

    If you want to put powerpoint on the internet, I think you should convert powerpoint to other formats such as Flash, DVD, OK, try this PowerPoint to Flash Converter

    Hey Bluemonkey, I develop websites. The best option to run your powerpoint files in website is to convert your files from ppt to flash. By making them swf files you can run on your website just attach the swf file through some html developing program like dreamweaver and for converting try: http://ppt2swfsdk.com/
