Convert PowerPoint to Images for Import
You can import a PowerPoint file into the Ovation software for use with certain virtual tools (e.g. Computer, Projector). The import process requires Ovation to first send the PowerPoint file to our cloud where each slide within the file is converted to an image and then sent back to the Ovation software.
This process of converting from slides to images can sometimes cause unexpected changes to the slide, particularly if the file has custom fonts, animations, videos, audio, etc. In order to avoid this, we recommend that you do the conversion in your own PowerPoint software, if you can, and then import the converted images instead of the PowerPoint file.
- Launch the PowerPoint application and open the PowerPoint file you want to convert
- Select File -> Save As
- Make sure to note the file path where the converted images will be saved (e.g. Desktop)
- Open the drop-down box and select JPEG File Interchange Format (*.jpg)
- Select Save
- A dialogue box will open. Select 'All Slides'
Select 'All Slides'
You will now see all of your slides in a folder with the same name as your PowerPoint file. Each of the slides will be sequentially named Slide1, Slide2, etc.
