How to extract images from Powerpoint

You may have a PowerPoint presentation with many images. You plan to use some or all the images in another presentation.

2 methods to extract Images from PowerPoint:

  • Extract images one at a time.
  • Extract all the images at a time.

The first option is useful if you have to handle only a few images. If the number of images is high, the second option is a better choice.

We will show you both options. Use these options according to your requirements.

Let us start.

Navigate to the slide containing the image you would like to extract. 

Step #2: Extract one image

Right-click on the image.
