Generate an image and thumbnail of powerpoint slides using CFMX?

I would like to know if it is possible to upload a Powerpoint file and convert each slide to a jpg?  Any examples?

I saw that link as well.

tonic systems has been borged by google and they are not selling the product any more

 the aspose.slides prog does appear to support export to images however...

it's only available in a .net version (at least the free trial) which means that CF8 would be required and it's 900 bucks so that's an issue...

"I thought there was a feature in CFPDF that would export each page as an image.."

you're right... http://cfpdf.blogspot.com/2007/06/thumbnail-images.html

and I guess you could use scale = "100" to generate a fullsize "thumbnail"

(didn't say it was impossible...just not easy ;)

CF can't do this... It might be possible using some of the commercial tools available using cfexecute but it would depend if the tool can accept command line args..

is it possible to use cfdocument to convert the .ppt file to a pdf, then from there export each slide as an image?

you might be able to use PPTUtils

to convert the ppt to html and then use cfdocument to create the pdf however i don't think there's a way to get cfimage to do anything with a pdf

It is extremely easy to save PowerPoint slides as images.
