If you would like to only compress the image you choose in step 1, tick the option “Apply to selected pictures only”, then go to options

If you would like to compress all images in the presentation then go options

Step 5. Choose Email (96 ppi), the reason for choosing this option is because of the options available, this one will reduce your images by the largest margin. There will be a slight drop in quality but the difference from the Screen (150 ppi) is minuscule.
