Powerpoint Workspace 720x540

 

Powerpoint, at least on my Home system – creates a default workspace that is 720x540 pixels wide.  When you insert pics, and they are larger than that – they are automatically reduced down.  Unless their dimensions are huge and they have to be drastically reduced to be displayed  -  the amount of reduction is 25%.  In other words:

 

Inserted images that do not fit are displayed at 75% of their actual size !!! 

 

NOTE:  if the inserted image is “exactly” the size of the project, it will also be reduced down.  For example, an image that is 720 pixels wide, although it is an “exact fit – will be reduced down by 25%.
