OpenOffice is an open-source suite of office software. It is similar in many ways to Microsoft Office, offering comparable features and abilities. OpenOffice Impress is the suite's presentation module, similar to Microsoft PowerPoint. Impress presentations can be quite large due to the amount of data and images they often contain. You may need to compress the presentation to easily share it with others. Current versions of OpenOffice have a built-in extension that helps you compress these files by optimising images and removing obsolete data.
