    PowerPoint to jpeg (2002)

    Created an ad in Power Point 2002 and have to save as a jpeg for submission. My problem is that when I save the slide as a jpeg, the type is no longer sharp (used Arial), it becomes "broken" and the picture that is inserted into the PowerPoint slide becomes very unclear as well. Is there any way to save a Power Point file as a higher quality jpeg than the standard?

    Jeebs68,

    What HansV said but also..... another option you may find useful...

    When you display a powerpoint slideshow, the font's are smoothed by the "font smoothing" features of windows. When you save a slide as a JPG from powerpoint, the font smoothing feature is not used. The result is the "Jaggies". One way to quickly get nice JPGs is to capture the slideshow as you display each screen. Just press the special "PrtScrn" or "Print screen" key on your keyboard when you have your 1st slide displayed.

    Then paste this image into your favorite pixel basher (photoshop... paint shop pro etc). Then repeat for all the slides.

    Pressing Alt and the TAB key will help you toggle between powerpoint and your pixel basher software.

    Cheers
