Extract images and sounds from PowerPoint


You have a PowerPoint presentation that contains embedded sounds or images. You want to be able to convert these to standalone files so you can use them in another presentation, edit them or ... well, whatever.


In PowerPoint 2010 or 2007
(Note: you must be using a 2007-2010 format file for this. That means the file extension must be PPTX, PPSX, PPTM, PPSM, POTX, or POTM.)

Or save as HTML to extract images and sounds

In PowerPoint 2007

In PowerPoint 2010
You'll need to use the information here to save as HTML from PowerPoint 2010.

In PowerPoint 2000 through 2003

Now ... to locate your sound and image files ...
PowerPoint creates a single HTML file using the name you just specified. In the same folder, it creates a new sub-folder called [Name]_Files ... for example, if you named the HTML file MyFile, PowerPoint creates a file called MyFile.htm and a folder called MyFile_Files.

Open that folder. There you'll find a whole bunch of files. The original embedded sounds and original image files from your presentation will be among them.
