I would like to point people to my favorite StarOffice plugin, the StarOffice Minimiser. You can get it here, and I do so wish that everyone would use it. Many presentations I download now exceed 10MB in size, and some exceed 20MB, and this is usually because they are full of JPEGS that have a resolution more suited to the sides of buildings than a presentation!
You can use the StarOffice Minimiser repeatedly on the same slide set as you add/change slides (i.e. new images will be minimized, previously minimised images will not be minimized again). There are also options to delete hidden slides and removes notes as part of the process, if desired.
