I was recently working on an option to present our company profile PowerPoint file on the web, it has quite a lot of pictures and videos in them. At first I used the normal PowerPoint -> Save As web site option and was not satisfied with the kind of output I received. So, I thought I could as well develop an framework for putting up the powerpoint slides to the website as I am doing it quite often.

To accomplish the task I planned to export all the slides as images, then scale them and optimize them for the web and then maybe put up an xml file to provide the order in which they are displayed and the name / description stuff. But as soon as I saved the slides into images I had a surprise the images which were of high quality were displayed in the following manner: 

I don't know why that happens, after experimenting with few more options I found a workaround for the issue. Save the presentation into PDF and then from the save the pages as image. This method somehow manages to scale the images down to the slides dimension without disorting it. Below is the result of the image saved using the latest method:

I will post the code for the framework I am working on my blog shortly after I finish it.

Have a nice day.
