Oops I ´m sorry, it really wasn ´t meant to be so big!

Well I had exactly the same problem . My ppt was 1.70 ,, so it was within the size limit...And the only thing that worked was to reduce it even more up to 1.20 and finally I could load it. I do not why. I ´ve tried the same solution several times and that was the only one that always worked so far...... Hope it helps
