How do I increase the resolution of powerpoint files saved as pictures?

I am making a number of figures for publication in powerpoint and want to save the files as PNG at a resolution of 300 dpi, however the default is set for 150 dpi and I cannot figure out how to change the setting. I am using the 2003 version of powerpoint. I would really appreciate your help!!!How do I increase the resolution of powerpoint files saved as pictures?

Only the Mac version of PowerPoint allows you to specify the resolution of presentations slides saved as pictures as well as individual slide objects saved as pictures.

Open your presentation in PowerPoint 2004. On the PowerPoint menu choose Preferences. Click the Save tab. In the lower part of the preference pane you'll see ';Advanced Resolution Settings.'; These control the output for saving your slides as pictures, as well as saving individual objects as pictures (right click %26gt; save as picture).

The control lets you specify dpi or pixels, but there are limitations based on the type of file you save as.

Here are the maximums:

TIFF 72dpi

JPEG 72dpi

PICT 1200dpi

PNG 300dpi

BMP 72dpi

GIF 72dpi

All windows versions of PowerPoint are locked at 72 dpi.

You can also use Visual Basic Macros in Mac PowerPoint if you need to automate this task.

    Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed. See the link below for more info.
