Hi, It's been a long time and I have forgotten how to extract/copy/remove pictures from a Microsoft Power Point Presentation.  Can someone refresh my memory please.
Thanks

I only ever did it once long ago. Here is a Microsoft Office reference to extract the pictures. I recall a process like this.

That second link won't work because there's no longer a Save as HTML option.

Here's my own blog post with the same technique mentioned in the first link. Basically you add .ZIP to the file extension, unzip the file, and grab the pictures. This will work with the new XML format files (PPSX, POTX, PPTX, etc.), but it won't work with the old binary file types (PPT, PPS, etc.). http://www.echosvoice.com/extract-pictures-video-and-audio-from-your-presentations-in-3-easy-steps/

That is the same process as offered by Microsoft to extract pictures as I offered above.

Yes, I said that. ("Here's my own blog post with the same technique mentioned in the first link.") Sorry if I wasn't clear -- I'm not trying to vie for points here, you're welcome to them. Just offering another way to explain the procedure and adding the info that this doesn't work with the old binary formats. The original poster mentioned PPS, which is an old binary format, and this technique won't work with it. Now, that may have just been shorthand for PPSX, but I figured it was worth mentioning in case it wasn't.
