    I need to convert about 10,000 images, graphs and charts into powerpoint format for lectures next term, ie into a powerpoint presentation.
    Is there a faster way is just bulk converting them into PPT or keynote ?
    I really do not want to add each one by one...:eek:
    I do have them seperated by topic so about 50-80 per presentation...

    any solutions please?

    Do you have to have it be in PPT format? You can make slide shows with iPhoto or in preview. I realize this would have some drawbacks, just throwing it out there as one alternative to powerpoint/keynote because that is a serious amount of stuff to go through. I don't have PPT or Keynote on this computer, but I'll look when I do.

    Yes it needs to be either PPT or keynote,
    this is for univeristy lectures so I need something compatible, keynote is easy to convert to PPT.
    I had thought of iPhoto but too much hassle to time properly.
