Save PowerPoint 2013 Presentation Slides As High Resolutions Images

With Office 2013, Microsoft has significantly diversified the approaches to data conversion with ease. We have already seen how to extract export text to Word from PowerPoint 2013 slides, and now we’re back with another article to show you the way to convert your PowerPoint 2013 presentation into pictures. This would be a beneficial option for you when you’re facing the issues in running Slide Show under PowerPoint. In that case, you can order the converted images into a sequence and project these images using full screen mode.

Now the question might be coming in you mind, how do you convert slides into images? Well, there is an easy way to do this as mentioned in the below steps. You can also control at what resolution your slides should be saved as images. Thus by saving the high quality images, you can use any device which support playing of pictures as a slide show to play your presentation.

3. Now comes the tricky part! When you got the Save as window, make sure to use the Save as type as PNG, JPG, GIF or TIFF format. All of these are image format, as a tip, I suggest you to select PNG format, since good quality of images can be expected with it. Click Save finally.

Since we have to save entire presentation in form of images, select All Slides in following prompt:

PowerPoint may now got busy in conversion and it will notify you when it is done with it:

In this way, all of your presentation slides are exported to separate images inside a new folder. Now let us see, how you control the resolution of these exported images so far.

Change Export Resolution Of PowerPoint Slides

According to Microsoft Support, there is an easy way, using which you can configure at what resolution the slides should be exported to image. You can use following steps to make such a configuration:

1. Press Windows Key + R combination, type put Regedt32.exe in Run dialog box and hit Enter to open the Registry Editor.

REGEDIT Windows 8 does not allow you to print more than 15 files

2. Navigate here:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\PowerPoint\Options

3. In the right pane, right click inblank space and select New -> DWORD Value. Name the newly created DWORD as ExportBitmapResolution. Double click on same DWORD to modify its Value data:

4. In the above shown box, you have to first select Decimal base. Input 96 as the Value data which scales the exported images at 1280 x 720 pixel resolutions. You can reference following values to get desired image size:

    yeahhh, Nice Article very Working…

    Good grief, Microsoft! I first learned this trick about 10 years ago, and you’re still forcing users into this hopeless workaround rather than making this choice available through PowerPoint preferences. When will you focus on fixing the things in Office which are broken and frustrating rather than adding layers of spurious functionality that very few people really need?

    Wow… This is pretty sad. You would think that someone at Microsoft would go “Maybe people would like an EASY way to export slides as 1920×1080 to fit those HD Televisions” Not everyone wants to take the time to hack a registry to do something that should be as simple as entering two numbers in a dialog box.

  • David

    Playing around with Office 2010. A value of 192 for a widescreen presentation gives you exactly 1920×1080 for Full HD.

    Thank you! This worked beautifully!

    Worked fine for me for Office 2003 SP3 :)
    Thx a lot

  • Levent

    It didnot work in office 2010 student version at win7 home basic. the jpeg resolution is 78dpi both after and before registry modification.

  • mjgraves

    The idiocy of this is that dpi is not a valid measure in this kind of activity. DPI is relative measure that should only be used in print. Anything that appears on-screen should be measured in absolute dimensions…that is the pixel resolution of the image.

    I am stuck in the Registry Edito, at “Power Point”, there is no “Option” option to choose….

  • Niels

    Thanks. Regedt32.exe = regedit in my windows 8.
    I agree that this function should be standard in Powerpoint options. I do not use it for saving slides as image to present but to create nice images, logo’s, badges etc. I crop them afterwards in another tool. Powerpoint does have very nice features to build.

  • KaitWill

    get all the way to options and there’s no Exportbitmapresolution or anything of the sort. using office 2010 pro

    The one place where Mac:Office 2011 beats Windows. There’s an option to save a slide deck as pictures, and you can select the pixel width and height before clicking OK.

  • Ma?ro Zírie

    This! Thank you for this article. Shame on Microsoft for making this so difficult.
