Powerpoint 2010 - Save multiple .jpg files from presentation NOT into a separate folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

     

    We currently have a need to save multiple .jpg files of multiple slides to a network share which will be automatically uploaded. The problem is that when the user needs to save the entire presentation (and there is more than one slide) it puts it in a separate folder with the message:

     

    "Each slide in your presentation has been saves as a separate file in the folder <folder name>"

     

    The problem is we cannot do this. For example, if we try to save these slides in C: it will always save it in C:\some_folder, and never simply in C:. Note that this does not happen if we are only saving one slide in the presentation.

     

    If anyone has a fix for that it would be most appreciated.

     

    Cheers

  • I know what you are refering to as I use this feature regularly.  Unfortunately there appears to be no setting in Options to control this behaviour, so it appears to be written in to the code of the dialog that asks the question relating to saving one or all slides.

    Your only alternative would be to develope some code to save all the slides in the presentation one by one like this example.

    Sub Save_PowerPoint_Slide_as_Images()

    Dim sImagePath As String
    Dim sImageName As String
    Dim oSlide As Slide '* Slide Object
    Dim lScaleWidth As Long '* Scale Width
    Dim lScaleHeight As Long '* Scale Height

    On Error GoTo Err_ImageSave

    sImagePath = "C:\ForBlogger\"
    For Each oSlide In ActivePresentation.Slides
    sImageName = oSlide.Name & ".jpg"
    oSlide.Export sImagePath & sImageName, "JPG"

    Next oSlide

    Err_ImageSave:
    If Err <> 0 Then
    MsgBox Err.Description
    End If

    End Sub

  • Hi,


    Thank you for using Microsoft Office for IT Professionals Forums.

    How did you save multiple .jpg files of multiple slides to a network share which will be automatically uploaded? Is 3-rd party tools?

    Could please post detail steps?

    Have you try to save the .jpg file to separate folder one by one?

    Please test this in another computer.

     

    Best regards
