    I think i am just being stupid here right now but how can i take the images off of a slide and put them onto my HD because a professor of mine basically is slow and has his powerpoints be 250MB+ in size and a lot of the students can't open them so i figured i would do the class a favor and take the images off and save them in photoshop to make them smaller.

    Please help ^_^


    thank-you

    Bring up the slides and, one by one, press ⌘-Shift-4 to crop the screen and capture each in its own picture on your desktop, or press ⌘-Shift-4-spacebar to capture the whole app window (and crop it later).

    Not optimal, but easy.

    Note that also holding the control button will force the snapshots to go to the clipboard instead of a file on your desktop.

    Alternatively, to get the original pictures, buy File Juicer, which will retrieve them from inside the ppt, and do a lot of other cool stuff too :D

    Thank-you for the responses ^_^

    I have a temp set-up until i start using the image capture i just export all the slides as images and go from there.

    Second question about keynote: Does anyone know of an automater script that will make a folder full of images into a presentation?
