How to Save PowerPoint Slides as JPEG
Note: Watch this short tutorial screencast or follow the quick steps below, that complement this video.
1. Save PowerPoint Slides As JPEG
I’m going to go to the File tab. I’ll choose Export, and then I’ll click on Change File Type. Now I’ll click on Save As.
2. Compress the File Size
Let’s go ahead and pick out a destination to save those and give it a file name. To save some space, let’s click on Tools and choose Compress Pictures. Let’s make sure the Delete cropped areas of pictures box is ticked. Then, choose Web Resolution to decrease the size of those images.
This is going to save the images in a smaller format so that the resulting JPEG images aren’t way too large.
3. Save the Converted File
Now we’ll go ahead and hit Save. Go to the folder where we saved our presentation, you’ll see a JPEG file for each and every slide in the presentation.
4. Share Your Converted Presentation
You can simply send these files over to any device that supports JPEGs to view the presentation on it. This is an easy export option that’ll get your presentation working regardless of the device or software.
