Assuming you have a large number of images or a number of large images (the usual reason for a presentation's file size growing excessively big), you can compress all images (and remove cropped areas) by doing the following:

  1. Select one of your images
  2. Click the Format tab under Picture Tools at the top
  3. Click Compress Pictures (small button in the Adjust group of buttons)
  4. Choose your relevant options
  5. Save your document
