    Sending Presentation (PowerPoint XP2003)

    What is the easiest way to email a presentation? If you use pack and go - will it just send the slide show and not the entire file?

    I've never used Pack and Go. (I think you might have to use Pack and Go if you've linked external items into the presentation.)

    If the recipient has either PowerPoint or an appropriate viewer, you can send the PPT, or you can rename it PPS so that its default "open" behavior is show.

    does renaming it .pps make the file size smaller too?

    Renaming myfile.ppt to myfile.pps shouldn't change anything except the way PowerPoint behaves when opening the file. (For better or for worse.)

    So is there any method of compressing the presentation? It is too large to send through our email here on campus.

    Depends on the contents. You can try creating a zip file from the presentation, but if it contains lots of pictures in .jpg format, that won't help much, since .jpg's are already heavily compressed. Presentations with many pictures will be large, whatever you do with them. Consider copying such a presentation to CD and sending that by snail mail.

    There are a number of causes of large files -- could be an embedded font, could be reviewing is turned on, could be oversized pictures, could be Allow Fast Saves. See http://www.rdpslides.com/pptfaq/FAQ00062.htm and Keep your File Size Down
