Question about Microsoft PowerPoint® 2007 Full Version Academic License for PC (079-03434)
My company has a problem when we insert a transparent image (such as a PNG) or make an image or part of an image transparent in Powerpoint 2007. While we've narrowed it down to file size of the image playing a part in the problem, it doesn't seem to be as big a problem as the file simply having some transparency with it. An example is this, i have a JPG file without any transparency that is roughly 500k that moves smoothly in Powerpoint (moving the image around in powerpoint). Now, i've converted that file to PNG with some added transparency and the file size has actually gone down (about 200k) and the image moves very slowly in Powerpoint (moving the image around, scaling it, simply navigating the slide).
Has anyone had a similar issue and do you know if it's a problem inherent to powerpoint 2007? We've been using PNG's for years in Powerpoint 2003 with no issues whatsoever with slowdown and we are trying to upgrade to Windows 7 and the new office suite. This will be a huge disadvantage for us if we can't resolve the issue.
Thanks to anyone in advance.
Ikkenom's solution is wrong. I'm experiencing the same on bleading edge machines. It seems to be an issue overall with high res images and I think it has a lot to do with the program trying to draw a preview image to move around before it actually lets you move. Previous versions of PPT did not do this preview draw and I think that's why we could move our images right away. If anyone knows a registry value or anything else, it would be greatly appreciated.

Get a faster computer. Making "transparent" images work (combining two layers of images to produce the desired effect) is CPU-intensive.
Or, at least, run the PowerPoint show on the *FASTEST* computer that you can find, to see if the extra "speed" is helping.
