How to post a Powerpoint presentation on the Forum(27 posts)
It's not for one particular one. But I get some Powerpoint feeds that are really amazing at times (like e.g. the Mars photos). But if I want to share it on the "Off Topic", I have to snip the pics and upload them. Would be easier to post the original Powerpoint file itself.
The idea of using google docs is that people don't have to have powerpoint installed... it converts them to web format so anybody can see them.
10mb is definitely not a lot though.
: That's 10mb per document, not 10mb total.
jd, Every time I allowed some Google on my systems, I found it very invasive. Same with Yahoo. On the IE I don't even have Google search. I disabled practically all the add-ons. And thanks for the link.
they are fabulous
i especially liked the clock one
do you have any of those as jpgs/pngs etc?
if you do
please could you chuck them in a zip folder and then onto sky drive?
Aleeve, You can snip the pics with the snipping tool (best to save in PNG format). But I would first download the file. I would have to do the same to get individual pics.
Geek, thank you. That's handy for those that do not have PP.
You can also just rename ImaginativePhotographer.pps to ImaginativePhotographer.ppt and then it will open in PowerPoint normal mode where you can just copy the images and paste them elsewhere.
Edit: Also just noticed there is a "Save As Picture" item in PowerPoint when you right click on an image in normal mode that makes this even easier.
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.
