Use in PowerPoint
Important points to remember …
Do not use an image that is:
than 1-megapixels in resolution
Optimise your image to be:
larger than 1024 x 768 pixels in size
It is not desirable to insert your original digital image into a PowerPoint presentation. The original image is likely to be of far larger and of a higher resolution than is needed for an on-screen presentation. It is therefore necessary to make an optimise copy of your original image for use in a presentation.
There are a number of options and considerations to make here:
This will result in an image which will convey all the basic information but with a small file size - seldom over 100kb. This is essential for keeping the file size of PowerPoint presentations manageable as each imported image adds to the overall file size. Unnecessarily big presentation file sizes will not make you popular with presentation engineers and your presentation may not behave as expected on other people's equipment! There is seldom a good reason why an individual's presentation should exceed five megabytes.
