Edit a graphic or picture in PowerPoint 2010 and then save as a .jpg

One of the my favorite tools in Microsoft Office is having the ability to save a .jpg from within a PowerPoint presentation. I often will copy and paste a screen shot image into PowerPoint. Then I make a crop and edit to the image and save the changes as a .jpg image. I usually end up never even saving the PowerPoint. This is how it works.

1. Copy and Paste the image into a PowerPoint slide. Also in PowerPoint 2010 you can use the new screenshot tool. This happens to be one of the most productive buttons I think exists within PowerPoint 2010.

2. Make edits and changes to your image using the Format tab.

3. Right click your image and choose “Save as Picture”

4. The default file format .png but you can switch it to a .jpg if you want the image to include more colors within the pixals.

The little one you see is a picture of my newborn son Austin. We are celebrating this week the birth of our 4th son.
