    There is no standard method for such conversion, to my knowledge.

    PDF files have varying levels of protection applied, and at the highest level you can only view it. Some will allow you to copy and past text, and copy and paste graphics.

    If the document is not protected I can only recommend the copy - paste approach into a powerpoint slide, where you will need to reformat the whole thing.

    If it is protected, then it was done so by the author to prevent copying (a common reason for using PDF files)

    If the pdf is not protected, then you could use a software named pdf2word to convert to word document. Then you could import to PowerPoint easily.

    That's kind of like asking how to turn a book into a movie. A pdf is just a document while PP presentations are multimedia with sounds, pictures, animations, and transitional effects.

    What exactly are you trying to do?

    You can read this:

    If you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat you can save the PDF as a jpeg, which will make a .jpg image for each page. You can then import those images into powerpoint.
