i dont really think that it could work could it?
you cant just randomly change a file extension - it would be brilliant if you could though!

Under the 'View' tab in 'Folder Options' uncheck the 'Hide extensions for known file types'

Then you should be able to see the extension .pps you can now rename this to .ppt.

It's under Tools Tab > Folder Option > View button > Uncheck 'hide extensions for known file types'. And it works great. Coates - Thanks for the hint.

Aleeve, Why upload them. We have the Powerpoint presentation on-line now. Anybody can grab the pics from there - same as we did. Just one more detail: I noticed that the pics are saved as JPEG (with this last method). That is fine if you just want to keep them for looking at. But if you want to do a lot of processing with them, I prefer them to be in PNG (less data loss). This can be accomplished with my snipping technique I had first suggested or you convert the JPEG's into PNG with the Paint program.

well, i have anyway
i saved most but not all of the pics (basically the ones I want)
and so you can get them from here: http://s294.photobucket.com/al.....owerpoint/

if it would be easier I could always put them in a rar file and put them onto sky drive! :)
