On a recent project the specs were to develop a visually dynamic presentation, but maintain an extremely small files size (goal = under 2MB for 75-100 slides – with images!).

The first place was to begin with the template backgrounds. Because native autoshapes are vector based, they have the smallest files size – especially when needed as full screen images.

Here is the content slide developed using just autoshapes:

Over the next few posts we’ll build the background one autoshape at a time.
