Presenter project's "Master" file is Huge!  Causing slow loading?

I have just finished several presenter projects for a client, and all work fine, except for the loading time of one.


First off: all of them work fine on my computer.  They load quickly and get right to work.  When I upload them to a website (not the final destination, but my own FTP folder), they also work fine.  But one takes a long time to load - about a minute.  This occurs every time I try to view it.  Eventually it starts up and then performs as it is supposed to.


I have re-loaded the files, and have re-created the presentation.  It still loads after about a minute, and that's with my relatively fast DSL speed.


I have examined the insides and discovered this one difference between it and the others:  The "Master" file, located within the data folder in huge at 68,085 kb.  (The actual name of the file is "Master80000000."  All the Master files have a number or number-letter name.)  The other five presentations have Master files of 6kb, 1kb, 1kb, 6kb, and 180kb. 


Obviously this Master file has a range of sizes, but why is the one ten thousand times bigger than most of the rest?


Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

    This is a converted version of the master slide from the PPT deck, so the size of it is tied to the amount and type of objects on it. If there are images on the master slide, make sure they are not large, hi-res images that were re-sized in PPT to fit the slide. Properly resizing images in an application like PhotoShop can greatly reduce the file size of your presentation.
