    So I made this great presentation on my mac using powerpoint 2003, right? Well, when I transferred it to a windows computer at school for a presentation, none of the pictures showed up, and thus I was unable to present. What can I do to make my whole presentation fully compatible with the windows computer?

    This is probably a dumb suggestion, but... did the files you imported contain the ".jpg" extension? Windows seems to be fussier about extensions than OS X.

    My guess is that you linked to the image files, instead of incorporating (i.e., placing them) into the power point file. Hence, power point could not find the images when transfered to a new machine.

    I've had the opposite situation happen. I tried viewing and printing a presentation made in Windows on my mac and the graphs and pics were black. However, when I use Parallels and use MS Office for Windows, I can view and print fine. I never investigated a solution since Parallels worked for me.
