How to Convert PPTX to JPG

By Cooper Temple

PowerPoint is a presentation and slide show program from Microsoft. PPTX is the file extension for PowerPoint files created with the 2007 and later versions of the software. You may want to use material from PowerPoint slides in another program, like a word processor. To use a slide in another program, convert the PPTX to a JPG by following a few steps.

PowerPoint 2007

Step 1

Launch PowerPoint 2007. Click the Windows “Start” button and select “PowerPoint 2007.” If you do not have PowerPoint 2007, a free trial is available from the Microsoft website (see References).

Step 2

Open the PPTX file that you want to convert to a JPG. Click the Microsoft Office button and select “Open.” Find the PPTX file, highlight it and click "Open."

Step 3

Save the file as a JPG file. Click the Microsoft Office button and select “Save As.” Select a folder for the JPG file. Use the “Save as type” drop-down menu to select the “JPG” option. Type a name for the JPG file in the “File name” field and click “Save.” This action will open a pop-up window. Select whether you want to convert only the current slide or the entire slide show.
