    I want to make a slideshow of 100 or so photos each of which is about 3MB in JPEG format. That makes for a pretty unwieldy (SLOW) slideshow!

    In the Windows version of PP, there is a way to compress all the photos after they're on the slides so that a 200MB show ends up at about 15MB!!

    I can't find the same process available in PP for Mac. Anyone know how to do it?

    Since the Mac version of Microsoft Office is made completely by a separate team of developers than its Windows counterpart. Sometimes they end up having different features that the other one doesn't have. This I believe is one of those features. That, or my older Office X version doesn't have it but the Office 2004 does, I wouldn't know. But my guess would be that you might have found one of the Windows only features.
