I recently came across an issue where I had to tack a Powerpoint presentation and make it a bit more interactive but retain all of the current brand styling – easy!
Well, not quite… Microsoft Powerpoint doesn’t let you do this natively and I wasn’t about to recreate all of the images, styling etc manually.
So how did I do it? As it turns out it pretty simple, all you need to do it download the presentation to a local machine rename the file extension:
myPowerpointPresentation.ppt -> to -> myPowerpointPresentation.zip
After you do that extract the contents to a location and navigate to the ‘ppt’ folder, then ‘media’ – BOOM, all the images are ready to use.
