Hi. I am just wondering if it is possible to use Powershell to save individual slides in jpeg format and then resize them in paint.
At the moment I do it manually. I work in a school where the school menu is edited by the head cook. It is then sent to me where I go through the painful process of saving each slide in the Powerpoint to JPEG. Then I open each slide in paint to resize to the correct size for TV screens to display through USB.
I haven’t learned Powershell yet. I was just wondering if a task like this is possible as it is the same process every time.
The first questions comming to my mind reading this would be “About how many files are we talking?”, “What do you do with the JPEG files then?” and “Why don’t you ask the head cook to provide the menu in the desired format?”. … and what actually is the desired format?
Maybe not in Paint since Paint does not have an API as far as I know. But there are tools out there able to resize JPEG images from command line or in batch … like ImageMagic or IrfanView.
I’m not familiar enough with PowerPoint but there might be tools or makros available capable to do this in bulk.
If it is just for this one task you may be better of with the batch converter built in in IrfanView.
