For PowerPoint, I downloaded a trial version of a program called
NXPowerLite (, which was highly recommended by
Lockergnome. NXPowerLite optimizes PPT files according to how you intend
to use them. The free trial version is fully functional, but can be used
only 10 times before you have to purchase ($45.00).

Someone had sent me a file that clocked in at about 7.3 MB. Using
NXPowerLite, I created a high-resolution version good for printing,
which came out to only 788 KB. I also created a lower-resolution version
that's good for projecting on a screen, which came out to only 307 KB!

Never needed NXPowerLite enough to buy it, but those are pretty good
