How to Extract Images from PowerPoint

If you need to extract images from a PowerPoint presentation to use in another project, there are several ways to do it. Extracting images from PowerPoint can be useful when you want to use them in other presentations, documents, or digital resources.

In this article, we will explore some of the best methods to extract images from PowerPoint, including using the “Save as Picture” feature, using online tools, and changing your presentation to a zip file, and copying the images out in Explorer.

I will also provide step-by-step instructions and tips to help you extract images from PowerPoint quickly and easily. Let’s get started!

Method one: Extracting an image via the context menu

1. Insert an image into PowerPoint. For example, I have a picture of a bucket of apples with a transparent background that I want to save.

2. Right-click on the image and select Save as Picture…

3. Select the location, add a name for the file, and hit Save.

4. If you go to the save directory, you will find the image you just extracted.

Although simple and fast, this method is only good for individual images. If you want to extract an enormous amount of images, try the next method.

Method two: Changing the format to ZIP

1. First, we need to make a copy of the document. Go to the File menu.

2. Click Save As and select Browse.

3. Select a location for the document copy and hit Save.

4. Now, go to the folder directory where you saved the copy.

5. Click the View menu and enable File name extensions. This menu will make the file format visible.

6. Right-click on the document and click Rename.

7. Change the PPTX to ZIP and then press Enter.

8. If you received this warning, just click Yes since this is just a copy of the original document.

9. If you receive another warning like this, close PowerPoint and click Try Again.

10. The document would turn into a ZIP file. Right-click on it and select Extract All…

11. Click Extract.

12. A new folder will appear, open it.

13. Navigate to the ppt folder and then open a folder named media.

14. Here you can find all images from the PowerPoint document.
