    I am running Win2000 Pro SP4 - in home, single computer. I have several images in Microsoft Power Point Viewer that I'd like to convert to JPEG, but am at a loss as to what is a good, reputable, FREE program. Anybody have any recommendations?

    IrfanView with plugins will open and convert nearly any image under the Sun. But what format are the PPT images in and how do you plan to extract them? A good screen capture program may be more useful to you than a converter.

    They are PPS files; what would you recommend as a screen capture program?

    PowerPoint docs are not images to convert. You can use any screen capture program to capture the opened slide of a PowerPoint file, but doing so you may be cheating yourself of the best clarity. That is, capturing the projected image of a contained image suffers if the size on the screen is larger or smaller than the original size of the contained file).

    Instead try using the FREE OpenOffice, which you can extract the images directly from the contents of either a PPT (PowerPoint file) or PPS (PowerPoint Slideshow) file. Just open the PowerPoint file, using OpenOffice and save as HTML. That will place all the contained images into a folder. No conversion will be needed if the images are already JPG.

    Good one Chuck. I’ve seen the question a few times but that is the only good solution I’ve run across.
