Hi,a friend has sent me some awsome photos of aircraft accompanied by Nicole Kidmans song "I am going to Fly Away".I have never seen anything like it.I view them in Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer.How would I open them to use as Wallpaper,I have tried the other two options offered but it tells me they are the wrong sort of files! Any ideas?

hit Print screen while the pic you want is on then paste it in any editor you have .Though can you not just hit the copy to button

You are able to extract individual slides and/or audio tracks from a PowerPoint presentation with - click here - or other proprietry pieces of software which if you Google will give you a comprehensive list.

They are not all Freeware though the one I have suggested is!

If you can play the POWERPOINT through the FREE VLC Media Player (Google for it) you can pause the video and get a snapshot of the picture under the Video Menu.
I haven't tried it but it might work as VLC plays just about anything.
