9. A dialog box will appear. Choose your location, filename, and type (if needed) and then click the Save button. The image that was created can be seen at the right.


NOTE: Save your image as a PNG or JPG for use in most programs.

Saving as an Image with Pictures and Text

1. Open PowerPoint.


2. Create whatever you want your graphic to look like. I have used images, shapes, and text in my example. You do not have to include all in yours.
