help to minimize the powerpoint presentation
Dear collegues.
I can not upload the ppt here as it is about 4 megabyte. How can I make it smaller? Thank you in advance.

If your powerpoint has many images try to resize them to make them smaller.
That īs what I usually do with my powerpoints when I use images.
You can also check the size of the background by double clicking on it and resize it if need be.
If it is still too big, try splitting it into two parts and upload one at a time.
I hope this may help you!

I had a similar problema and compressing pictures worked. 
Right-click on any one picture, slect "Format" and then on the top-left corner of the tool bar click on "Compress pictures".
Important: DO NOT TICK the box saying "Apply only to selected images". Finally, click accept & save changes.
Good luck!
