Save All Slides or a Single PowerPoint Slide as a Picture

If you save more than one slide as a picture file, the pictures are added to a folder created by PowerPoint

Saving One Slide as a Picture

If you choose to save only the current slide, PowerPoint will save the picture in the chosen format using the current presentation filename as the picture filename, or you can choose to give the picture slide a new filename.

Saving All Slides as Pictures

If you choose to save all the slides as picture files, PowerPoint will create a new folder using the presentation filename for the folder name (you may opt to change this folder name), and add all the picture files to the folder. Each picture will be named Slide 1, Slide 2 and so on.
