  1. hi! thanks for the information now i can convert my presentation to a jpeg (picture format) thanks for the post.. owe you alot…

  2. Thank You for the information!!! I think I will have to upgrade.
    I have 2003, and I do not have the option of the JPeg under Save As, unless I am doing one slide at a time, select all, save as then I can get a JPeg option.
    I have a lot of data on mine that I wanted to go along with the slide.I had 300 plus slides that I wanted to get into My Pictures so they would be picked up by Photo Elements.
    I have not however been able to save the background at all, which is a bummer, but I have accomplished getting everything else by clicking Select All, Save As, My Pictures.( One at a Time) Much too time consuming!! But with this you can get all of your photo’s in my case, into Photo Elements.
    Any more info for me would be appreciated.

  3. Probably the more accurate way to say what I meant was that I have a lot of inserted text and inserted clip art and such that I would like to go with the slide when it is inverted into an image, so It will be picked up by Photo Elements after it gets into “My Pictures”. I can only do it one at a time.

  4. In PowerPoint 2010:

    Go to File (not BackStage)> Save and Send > Change File Type

    Thanks!

  5. I’m losing clarity of the original ppt slide when I save as an image; how can clear detail be retained?
