Currently Being ModeratedMar 30, 2011 8:00 AM (in response to VReddy)If you did not try the following, it should be easy:
Cropping will not change much, but use secondary click of the mouse and select the option
"REDUCE IMAGE FILE SIZE"
Do the same for all pictures you have in the presentation.
I hope this will help.
Let me know
Take care, good luck for your presentation.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 30, 2011 1:06 PM (in response to Paul JB)Hi Paul,
Thanks so much for the advice. It did the same thing as Reduce file size under the File option which I had tried already. But thank you and take care!
Currently Being ModeratedMar 30, 2011 1:08 PM (in response to Rick A)Thanks, Rick! I've tried Reduce file size already which helped but didn't entirely solve my problem so I was looking for some new tips and tricks!
Currently Being ModeratedMar 30, 2011 1:13 PM (in response to VReddy)I have the impression I might not have been clear enough ...
You have to click on the image you want to reduce with the secondary click (control+mouse click) to get the drop down options with reduce file size.
That's how I get my documents much lighter.
Have you done that?

Currently Being ModeratedMar 30, 2011 1:20 PM (in response to Paul JB)Yes, I've tried that but the result is pretty much the same as the reduce file size in the file menu. Thanks so much for the help!
Currently Being ModeratedMar 31, 2011 5:33 AM (in response to VReddy)Perhaps the file is just large, and you've done everything possible?
One other thing you might want to try is to do a "Save As" with another version number. I just did that to a file that was 27.2 MB and it shrank to 25.4 MB. Not much, I know.
I don't know how KN works internally, but a program like Adobe's InDesign stores all the changes you make to a file at the end of that file (if I understand correctly), and when you do a Save As, it rebuilds the file and gets rid of all the old info.
Just curious, how big is your file, what's in it (lots of images?) and how small were you hoping to get it?2 15.4" MBPs, Mac OS X (10.6), iPhone 3 GS 32 GB, iPad 64 GB

I figured out a workaround. After reducing the file size, I duplicated the file to a NEW file ... which appears to get rid of the invisibly saved versions (which must have retained the old, big images). The new file, then, is much smaller and has no version history embedded.
Does that help?
