Exporting Images

Exporting Images

Once your slideshow is finished, exporting the slideshow as a series of JPEG images is simple. Choose the Save As item from the File menu, and from the pull-down menu that appears in the Save as Type section, choose JPEG, and then navigate to wherever you want your images to be saved (see Figure 8). The precise details will vary depending on the version of PowerPoint you’re using.

At this point, some versions of PowerPoint will offer options including changes to the size of the slides and the image format used—for example, alternatives such as TIFFs and GIFs. Generally, it’s best to stick with JPEGs as the image format that offers the best balance between file size and image clarity. The default images size—either 720x540 (at 72 dpi) or 960x720 (at 96 dpi) depending on the version and operating system—is also well worth sticking with for much the same reason.
