    Is it possible to save an individual photo from a power point slide show?

    Click on the image in PP so there are handles around it in slide view and copy and paste it into a graphics app as a new image.

    Thanks. That did work, however I wonder why the quality is so much better in powerpoint then when I pasted it into photoshop? I saved it as a high quality jpg and it doesn't look very good.

    Try writing clicking on the picture and then choose Save picture as.. and save it. I generally get better results this way then the copy and paste method.

    Good luck.

    lola2001,

    There's another 3 ways to try.

    1) View the slideshow, press the PrtScn/ Print Screen key on your keyboard, when the picture is displayed. Photoshop > file > new > ok > edit > paste

    2) Select the picture in powerpoint. Edit > copy > start ms photo editor > edit > paste as new image. That gets you the original quality of the picture that went into powerpoint in the first place. Then save it from ms photo editor. This technique only works with MS photo editor (IMHO it's photo editors only use!).

    3) see this page for how to get more pixels out of powerpoint when you "Save as > jpg png etc"
