Get images and sounds from PowerPoint for reuse

When you get a PowerPoint presentation embedded with nice images and sounds, you may want to extract those delicacies for separate reuse elsewhere, e.g. in another presentation, in your blog or podcast, etc.

Then how do you extract the sounds and images from a targeted PowerPoint presentation?

Follow these steps:

♦ Go to your PPT presentation, select File -> Save As -> Other Formats.

♦ In the prompt Save As dialog, choose “Web Page (*.htm, *.html)” from the “Save as type:” dropdown list.

save powerpoint as html

♦ Specify a folder to save in and rename the file.

♦ Finally, click the Save button.

Go to that folder, and you’ll find a single HTML file with the specified name along with a new folder labeled the same name plus “_files”. For example, if the file name is “happy hut. htm”, the folder name should appear as “happy hut_files”.

Open the new folder of a bunch of files, and you can pick out the sounds and original image files of your PPT presentation.

In addition, it is also possible to save and publish the whole presentation of images and sounds onto Web or mobile devices. What you need is to convert your PowerPoint presentation to video, a format that is portable and web-friendly, just using the smart Moyea PPT to Video Converter.
