Powerpoint users are able to add picture to their slides and perform a number of different formatting options on those images. But you may be wondering how to save a picture to your computer from Powerpoint if you have a picture in a slide that you want.
Microsoft Powerpoint offers a handful of different options when it comes to saving the presentation as a file. You have the default .pptx file type, but you can also save as a PDF, a video, and more. And if Powerpoint doesn’t have the option you need, you can also convert it to a Google Slides file.
But you may only be interested in saving a single picture that appears on one of the slides so that you can edit that picture, or use it in a different type of document.
