Free PPTminimizer 3!

Update: It is now past 3/23/09 now and this offer is still available!

A dotTech reader just informed me of this offer (he/she did not leave a name but thanks to whoever it was). I have not fully tested out this product yet because this offer is going to end very soon (it is supposed to end at 3/23/09) so I thought I should post about it before I spend time testing it.

For a limited time you can get PPTminimizer 3.0 for free. What is PPTminimizer? Basically a program that compresses Microsoft Office PowerPoint presentations (since OpenOffice Impress can create .PPT files – as far as I remember – this may work with OpenOffice also):

PPTminimizer reduces PowerPoint presentations in seconds by up to 96% of their initial size. The program achieves this by optimizing the graphics and imbedded objects found in the original PowerPoint file. This will relieve your e-mail accounts, servers and networks extremely. Free your hard disk of unnecessary data; save a lot of time: there is no need to work on pictures and graphics in your PowerPoint presentation separately as PPTminimizer takes care of everything. By using the new convenient search function, the user is able to search various computer drives for the PowerPoint presentations and optimize the files in just one click. The PowerPoint presentations, which have been optimized, are saved as a different PPT-file, leaving the original file in its initial state, so no need to zip/unzip your files. Outlook-Add-In: PPTminimizer optimizes and configures PowerPoint presentations before they are dispatched by e-mail.

    Dude,

    It worked fine for me. And it is v3. I think I know what went wrong. Let me change the directions around a little bit.

    Update: Nevermind…I just checked again and the directions are just fine. I don’t know why you are having problems longfeng.
