How to export high-resolution (high-dpi) slides from PowerPoint

You can use a two-stage process in Microsoft PowerPoint to change the export resolution. Using the system registry, you must first modify the exported slides‘ default resolution option. To set the resolution you want entails gaining access to the system registry and modifying the pertinent parameters.

Save the particular slide at the modified resolution after setting the default resolution. Use the “Save As” feature and select an image format (such as JPEG or PNG) for export if you want to do this. When you save the picture, be careful to choose the resolution you want, and ensure it matches the changes you made to the system registry.

Following these instructions, you can adjust the export resolution in Microsoft PowerPoint according to your unique needs for slide images.
