Save 300 DPI High Resolution Image Files from Power Point

Although MS has provided a step-by-step solution to produce 300DPI high resolution image files from MS Power Point (ref: URL 1) and tested by many people (as shown from internet sources), it is still not working in my laptop computer (PC). After spending few hours for troubleshooting, I am still have no idea why the solution does not work in my PC. Therefore, I decide to use my old-fashion approach to complete my task a.s.a.p.


Tools Needed:

  1. Power Point 2007
  2. PPT to PDF plugin (using PDF print software also possible. But the quility will depends on the quility of the conversion.
  3. GIMP software (Open software - you can download it for free)

1. After complete the design of your poster or flyer with desired size and format via MS Power Point, save the design in PDF format via "PPT to PDF" plugin or other PPT to PDF converter.
2. Open GIMP software, draw and drop the PDF file to the GIMP sofware, then you will see the "Import from PDF" tool box as follows:

3. From the tool box, firstly, select "Images" as the Open pages, then make sure the resolution is in "pixels/inch", and finally, before click the "Import" button, key-in your desired resolution (e.g. 300.98 for 300DPI).

4. Without any further editing for your design, you can simply save the design in your desired format now with the following steps: File -> Save As... -> Select File Type -> JPEG image (for example) -> Save (after key-in your favourite Name for the image)

That's all for today. I hope this small tips can help you to generate 300DPI a.s.a.p. for your conference, exhibition, competition or any project.
