    In Office 2003 and 2007 on my Win machine there is a command to "Compress Graphics". For the life of me I can't find this (or anything like it) in Mac 2008.

    Am I missing it? Is there a different way to do this?

    I have never seen that command in Office:mac, nor have I ever felt the need for it. The Office documents with embedded graphics created by me tend to be substantially smaller than similar documents created by my Office:win-using colleagues.

    not sure if this helps or not...but, if you do a 'save as', then in that dialogue window there is an 'options' button which gives you options for your compression settings within that presentation.

    I've been trying this - least, medium, best - and then changing the resolution of the images.

    PowerPoint doesn't change the file size by even a kilobyte.

    Why bother having the option if it does nothing!

    Inability to compress a PowerPoint Document

    I tried the same, but to no avail. If PowerPoint 2011 Mac doesn't have the same ability the Windows version does to compress the whole document then they'll be hearing from me. So unprofessional no not include a common feature on the Mac version.
