Converting .pps slideshow?
Is it possible to convert a slideshow in .pps format to .jpg or any other format which doesn't require a .pps reader to view it?

Nope---But you can download the P.P viewer alone-----Just include it with your presentation.

YES... If you download OPEN OFFICE a multiplatform opensource office suite.

Open you pps file with OpenOffice, select the content that you want, click on FILE, select EXPORT, then select your desired format from the drop down wiindow.

There are a couple of ways to convert a PP to a mpeg movie ... depends on what video editing software you have.

Number 1, its FREE
number 2, it allows you to build your own pp presentation or edit existing ones.
Number 3, it contains all (plus some) features of Windows Office & is fully compatable.

Number 4, CWILMOT asked "Is it possible to convert a slideshow in .pps format to .jpg ? & I answered.

Didn't know about Open office capability.

Can't you simply screen capture the frames to convert it to a JPEG? I've done with .PPT files before, don't think that .PPS files will be any different...

why not first launch the PowerPoint program, and open the .pps file, and then save the file as images, PowerPoint itself is enough for this task.

but, if the pps file is fully animated and rich media equiped, you'd better transform it into some other formats that will retain the motions and actions of the source file. e.g: mpeg, avi, .swf (drastically reduce the file size)

Because Powerpoint (MS Office) is not free? What is it, over 200?
