Transcript:How to Create Pictures From PowerPoint Slides
Hi, I'm Kostas Georgokitsos for About.com. Today I'll show you how to create pictures From PowerPoint slides.
Save Your Presentation to Create Pictures From PowerPoint Slides
You can save a single slide or all slides of the entire presentation as pictures. To do this, open your presentation go to File and click on "Save As". In the lower dropdown selection, you can choose the type that you want to save your presentation as. Press on the down arrow. Scroll down until you find "JPEG File Interchange Format (.jpg)" and select it. Click Save. A dialogue will pop up. If you want to save only a particular slide as a picture, select "Current Slide Only". If you want to convert the entire presentation into pictures, select "Every Slide".
Open the Images to Create Pictures From PowerPoint Slides
Another window will pop up to inform you that each slide in your presentation has been saved as a separate file in a folder that has the same name as your presentation. Click "OK" and locate the folder. Open it. As you can see, Powerpoint has created separate .jpg files for all the slides. The images have been named accordingly: Slide1.jpg, Slide2.jpg and so forth. If you had chosen to save only the current slide, only one .jpg file would have been created, but this time the image, would not have the name of the slide, but the name of the entire presentation instead.
Uses for Pictures Created From PowerPoint Slides
Once you have saved the slides as images, you can view and edit them as any other picture file. You could use them to create a web page with the slides on it. Or you can transfer them to a mobile device which does not have a presentation program installed and therefore it cannot open Powerpoint slides. You could even load the presentation to a digital photo frame, and use it as a display instead of an entire laptop.
