Automatic Conversion from PowerPoint to JPEG

Universal Document Converter works as a virtual printer and can save any document in the PDF, JPEG, TIFF, or PNG format. If you are a software developer, you can control the settings using COM-interface and using Microsoft PowerPoint as COM-server for converting your presentations to the JPEG format.

PowerPoint presentation conversion source code examples:

Visual Basic.NET

VB.NET PowerPoint to JPEG conversion code example:

'----------------------------------------------------------------------
' 1) Microsoft PowerPoint starting from version 97 should be installed and
'    activated on your PC.
'
' 2) Universal Document Converter version 5.2 or later should be installed
'    as well.
'
' 3) Open your project in Microsoft Visual Basic.NET.
'
' 4) In Visual Basic main menu press Project->Add Reference...
'
' 5) In the Add Reference window go to COM tab and double click into 
'    Universal Document Converter Type Library
