Exporting PNGs from PowerPoint 2007

This tutorial shows how to export PowerPoint slides as individual PNGs in PowerPoint 2007.


Product/Version: Microsoft PowerPoint 2007

PowerPoint allows you to save your slides to many graphic file formats, which can later be used in other applications as required. This series of tutorials shows you how to create a new secure PDF with slides exported from PowerPoint. Of course, you can create your PDFs straight from PowerPoint but that process allows you to copy text and graphics individually from within the PDF. Compared to that process, this tutorial uses flattened slides that don't have any selectable or editable text.

This page comprises the first part of the PowerPoint to Secure PDF series.

Follow these steps to export PNGs from within PowerPoint 2007:

  1. Open any presentation in PowerPoint.
  2. With the presentation open, choose Office Button | Save As (see Figure 1).

  3. This summons the Save As window (see Figure 2). From the Save as type drop down list, choose PNG.

  4. This brings up a message window asking if you want to export every slide in the presentation, or just the current slide. Choose the Every Slide option (see Figure 3).

  5. Once the slides are saved, PowerPoint prompts with a message, as shown in Figure 4, displaying the path where the PNGs were exported. Click OK.

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book! Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
