The command line way is simple/direct:

1) Unzip the ODP file to disk

2) Look for any large image files

3) Load the large image files into an editor and reduce
resolution/color depth, increase compression, whatever you need to do
to make it smaller.

4) Save image file back to same name/same directory.

5) Zip up the directory, renaming it to and *.odp extension if needed.

ODF files are just ZIP archives containing XML + binary resources like
images.  So they are very hackable from the command line, once you
unzip them.
