    Hi lcbs1, What PowerPoint version are you using?

    Goto Insert > Picture > "Select" From File > "Choose your Jpeg" > The Picture is imported to the slide.

    To convert it to .ppt , Goto File > Save > "Anyname.ppt"

    Your jpg is now converted to a PowerPoint Presentation.


    - :S:

    Strange indeed,

    Have you tried creating a new slide, or are you trying to insert it into an existing one?

    If you haven't tried a new slide please do so, and let me know what happens.

    1. Why is this in Operating Systems ?
    I have this photo that I want to change a bit it is a JPEG file...
    2. Are you saying you want to edit this jpeg image with powerpoint..
    That's like tightening a screw with a hammer..
    You could use MsPaint for image manipulation (even better would be a descent graphics suite).
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

    it sounds like you are running the PP viewer NOT PP itself

    Yep ........

    PP would entail BUYING some S/W. the viewer is free ...........
    same for adobe, the reader is a freebie, but to make a pdf means you gotta spend

    try and play with the image in paint first [copy it first ]
    or see if you can get hold of photoshop

    I use ACDSee [I like it, go figure]
