Hi all.

I am running Windows 10 pro.
I received a power point email attachment that had some very nice photos/pictures that I would like to extract and use as desktop pictures.

How do i go about doing that.

OK, I just tried it, and changing the file extension from .PPS to .PPT works.

You should be able to open the file and do the re-save as .ODP

Try this:

1) Open the PPT
2) Save as ODP (native OpenOffice Impress format)
3) The .odp file is essentially a .zip file. Open the .odp file with a utility which handles .zip files, I use 7-zip.
4) Within the ODP/ZIP file, all the images will be in a folder called Media or Pictures.

See how that works for you.

If it turns out you do not have PowerPoint, you can always pause the slideshow and take a screenshot.

To do this, pause the slideshow and tap the PrtScrn button twice (it's usually just to the right of F-12 keys). From there, open up the Paint program and paste. This pastes your screenshot, from there, you can use the crop tool for just the picture and save it. Should take you less than two mins. :)

Hi Mike.
I tried yours first as you are thew top of the heap, but I got stuck right at the beginning.
I double clicked on the .pps file and the slide show began, only problem was that there was no way that I can see that will allow me to Save As ODP.

When I right click the screen a dropdown box appears, but nothing in that box allows me to Save as ODP or anything else for that matter.

What am I missing here?

Johnw......... I tried your power point extractor, it worked but everything was a thumbnail picture that when blown up was just a mess of pixels.

Revised instructions, these are for 2007:

Open PowerPoint first.
Click the Microsoft Office button, (The Old File button on task bar)
Click Open and navigate to the location of the .PPS file
Double Click on the .PPS file and it should open in PowerPoint.

Click the Microsoft Office button
Select Save As
Select Other Formats
In the Save As Type drop down box at the bottom, it should show something
like: "PowerPoint 97-2003 Show"
Click the down arrow and at the very bottom of the list,
Select: OpenDocument Presentation (*.odp)

You will get a warning message about compatibility, click YES to continue.

After you have saved the file as .ODP
Close PowerPoint, and navigate to the location you saved the new .ODP file.
The .ODP file is essentially a .zip file.
Open the .ODP file with a utility which handles .zip files, I use 7-zip.
Within the ODP/ZIP file, all the images will be in a folder called Media or Pictures.
Extract the whole directory to someplace you can work on them.

See how that work for you.

Hi there.

I am sorry but I cannot find the button "File" you are talking about. I assume you are referring to the ""File" that used to appear across the top of the page in the menu bar, it's not there.

When I open the PPS (now living on the desktop) the presentation begins. There are no buttons appearing on the page only the title/description of the actual slide, the next photo then appears and so on. The only written material on the page is the description of and picture/photo.

Right click does not appear to have anything that is of use to me either, unless I am missing something.

That is why you have to open PowerPoint first.
Then open the .PPS file.

A .PPS file is a PowerPoint Slide Show file.

You haven't tried the second program I nominated.

View with Photos ( not Windows Photo Viewer )

I'm not completely sure, because I have never tried, but try changing the file extension from .PPS to .PPT and see if you can open the file.

I give up!

I opened Power Point and there I cannot find how to go from there to the slides. All this does is go around within the PP program.

I shrink the program to the task bar at the bottom, open the PP and stop it on the picture I want..BUT... there is no way that I can find to either click to save or drag or move or anything out of there into the PP program

And by now my mind is ready to explode. I will have to give it a rest so it can cool down

Mission accomplished.

My thanks to all. I went down the path that mmcc suggested. Here is what I did:

I changed the .PPS to PPT. Double clicked the .PPT icon and scrolled to the desired picture/photo Right clicked and selected "Save as picture"

In the next window in the "file name" box I gave it a name/title and clicked "Save"

Closed all open windows and navigated to "My Pictures" folder. When opened I selected the saved photo.

The photo/picture came up in a black screen but it was not my desired size.

I then clicked several times on the "+" at bottom right of frame to increase to my required size. When satisfied with size I right clicked on picture and selected "Set as Background".

That done I closed the window and there it was, my chosen desktop picture in full size.
