HOW TO ... Create High Definition 300DPI Images Using Powerpoint

Now every designer and digital artist knows that trying to find high quality images can be extremely difficult at times with 300dpi being the standard used by advertising agencies and graphic designers everywhere for optimum printing etc. Now I present a way to increase the dpi of pictures by using Microsoft Powerpoint 2003 and Microsoft Powerpoint 2007. I have tried this technique many times and it's worked out just fine for me. The instructions are simple and easy to follow.
Please note the original method comes from MARKS SPEECHBLOG, all thanks should be directed to that excellent blog for all the research done to make this possible. please support Marks Speechblog.


The trick to changing PowerPoint's dpi setting, is that you do not actually change it in PowerPoint.
1. Select Run from the Start menu.
2. Type regedit into the Run box, and then click OK.
3. Once the Registry Editor has opened, navigate your way to the registry key for PowerPoint. This will depend on which version of PowerPoint you are using.

PowerPoint 2003: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\PowerPoint\Options

PowerPoint 2007: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\PowerPoint\Options

4. Select Options by clicking on it once, and then click the Edit menu, then New and then DWORD Value.
5. Type ExportBitmapResolution, and then press ENTER.
6. Select ExportBitmapResolution, and click on Modify on the Edit menu.
7. In the Value data box, type your desired resolution value: 12c, then click Decimal (the value will change to 300), and then click OK.
8. Exit the Registry Editor.


To save an image, you simply export a PowerPoint slide as a picture.
1. Have the slide that you want to export open.
2. Select Save As from the File menu.
3. In the Save as dialog, select the type of file that you want to export your slide as (.gif, .jpg, .png, .tif, .bmp, .wmf or .emf), and then click Save.
