In PowerPoint 2010 the Save as Picture Presentation was just such a feature. The feature takes any presentation and “flattens” the content to a single picture per slide. Why? Because once your content is a picture, it’s harder to modify. “In PowerPoint 2010 with new save as “PowerPoint Picture Presentation,” it’s now as easy as save as, and in less than a minute you’re done! Complex animations still need to be saved manually. Average time spent with this process was 3-5 minutes.” “To make Senior Executive presentation content available to customers, partners, or on web, we needed a way to protect Microsoft’s copyrighted content. So it was decided that each slide needed to be converted into a “picture.” This time consuming task was done by saving the presentation as .JPGs. The .JPGs needed to be placed into a slide and then saved out; if the slide had a complicated animation, each animation would need to be saved separately,” says Steven Winard.
