How to Convert Powerpoint to JPG

By Louise Balle

Microsoft PowerPoint is a program that allows users to create and display slides for meetings and presentations. In addition to displaying the presentation on your computer screen or a projector, you can also print the slides or upload them online. When you need to display or email only one or two slides to someone online, it's best to convert the slide to an image file, like a JPG, and then upload it to your web server or attach it to an email message.

Step 1

Scroll through the Microsoft PowerPoint presentation and display the slide that you want to convert to JPG format on your screen. If you want to convert all of the slides to individual JPG files, there is no need to go to any specific slide.

Step 2

Go to "Save As" on the Microsoft PowerPoint main menu. Navigate to the folder where you want to save the new JPG file and type in a name for the file in the "File name" box.

Step 3

Click the arrow next to the "Save as type" drop down box and find "JPEG File Interchange Format." Click "Save;" this will bring up another dialog box.

Step 4

Choose "Current Slide Only" if you only want to convert the slide that you selected in step one, or click "Every Slide" if you want to convert the entire presentation. The program will save the file as a JPG file and deposit it on your hard drive.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you plan to email a set of converted JPG slides, compress them into a WinZip folder first. To do this, find the set of JPG files in Windows Explorer (right-click the Start menu and select "Explore"). Select them all, then right-click one and choose "Send to Compress Folder" or the similar option (this applies to Windows operating systems). This will reduce the size of the files and make them easier to email.
