Creating a presentation in Microsoft Powerpoint provides you with the ability to present a large amount of information to an audience in a format that is easily digestible. By segmenting important ideas and information into individual slides you can make it easier for people to focus on one thing at a time.
But occasionally you may have a specific point on one of the slides in your presentation that you would like to share with someone, or put into a document or Web page. But rather than sending or embedding the entire slideshow, you can elect to save that one slide as a picture and share it however you need.
