Photo resolution

Post by jgold723 » 01 Feb 2019, 16:44

My client wants me to create a epub using slides from his Powerpoint presentation. I've tried exporting the slides as .jpgs out of Powerpoint, but they come out fuzzy. I've tried increasing the resolution of the PPT export, but no luck. The jpg files are larger, but still fuzzy.

The slides look fine in Powerpoint, but then they are pretty small there.

Any suggestions? I'm thinking I may need to try and get the original images from my client?

Hi John,

Original files are always best...if they still have them. You could try exporting as PDFs and see if that helps. If that doesn't help, there is software that can increase "resolution" and if the image files are reasonable, it can do a decent job if the increase isn't above 200% in my experience.

But do try getting original files first.
