Choose, select the image file you want to use to print. But if the image file is not in the folder under the option's Create, it will fail. How do I preserve hyperlinks? A) Open PowerPoint, choose File and New. · Choose Image. · Enter the name of the image file B) Click on “More Options”. • You can choose the image file under “Save as Type”.• You can choose the file under “Format in” and “Location” · Note: The above option does not apply in PowerPoint 2013, only PowerPoint 2011. • It is recommended that you use a PNG file for the image file since the PPT format cannot natively handle high performance image processing. C) Select the options and click on OK. Click OK. Click OK. Now you save the PowerPoint file. If the image file has already been created, you can click on the image file and use the preview menu in PowerPoint. This will display the details of the image file including the file size. In most cases, the image file size will be a small amount. You can see how big a PPT file is if you look at the top right of the image. It works great in PowerPoint 2013, but why in PowerPoint 2023 and later? A) PowerPoint 2023 and subsequent versions cannot natively handle high performance image processing. This is because as of the release of PowerPoint 2016, the PPT format can only contain a 256 MB file. This is a problem because an image file needs to be large enough to process and make it look good but small enough that you can still download the file and open it with a PDF Reader. This is when the Hyperlinks work fine, until you change the image to another format such as JPG, GIF or TIFF D) Then the hyperlinks do not work because PowerPoint 2023 will automatically remove any embedded hyperlinks which are associated with the PPT file. If you have made several files using PowerPoint 2016, you should check the folder of the files. If any of them has a reference to a PPT file, the associated hyperlink may be gone or may not be there at all. You then need to make a copy of the original PPT file. Once all the files have been made as a PDF (including a .PPTX file with hyperlinks), it is possible to work with those files as a PDF.
