It would be interesting to do a comparison of NXPowerlite and the
feature already in PowerPoint, (I know at least 2003).

1. Right-Click a graphic on a slide.
2. Click Format Picture
3. Click Compress

You can choose to do just the selected picture, or all pictures. If
the purpose of the presentation is for screen presentation, selecting
Web/Screen can significantly reduce the size of the file. Also, if
they have cropped a lot of pictures, this option removes the cropped
area, again yielding a smaller size.

Depending on how the pictures are imported, this can yield pretty
stunning results in shrinking PowerPoint files, and it's already in
the program.
