Hi Experts,

Ive got a problem with the new PowerPoint 2007. If you write a text and save the slide as a jpeg-file or a gif-file the text becomes all blurry. Even though you can change different settings it has no effect. Any good advice?

PS: This was not a problem in the 2003 version

Any chance you can post a link to an example - so I can take a look at the gif/jpg

Sorry, I dont have the option to upload the file (any suggestions?)

Would it be possible for you to perform the little test yourself? Open PPT, write some text and save the slide as JPEG. Open the JPEG file and view the quality of the image &

Try some of the suggestions here:
Improve PowerPoint's GIF, BMP, PNG, JPG export resolution
BTW, the difference may have something to do with all the text effects options now available in PowerPoint.  Another thing you might want to consider is upgrading your print driver (know it sounds silly but it seems to "fix" a lot of weird things in 2007).
