How Do I Make a JPG Map From PowerPoint for a Website?
This how to video shows you how to take one of our downloadable, editable BJDesign.com PowerPoint clip art maps and convert it to a JPG graphic that you can use on your website or blog.
A common question from our clipart map users is "Can you make web graphic from the editable PowerPoint maps?" The answer is Yes. PowerPoint has several different Save As options and they work quite well. For a web graphic you need a format called JPG, it is right there in the Save As window. PowerPoint is a great alternative if you don't have a graphics program like Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator.
1. Customize your map however you want, color, add text, set up a custom region. SAVE your project as you always do.
2. To create a JPG graphic for your website or project choose SAVE AS from the FILE pull down menu. In the SAVE AS window that appears Click on the popup format menu and select JPG. This option saves each slide of your PowerPoint file as a JPG graphic file. Select the correct file and send it to your web developer or post on your blog or use where ever you might need a map.
This guide works with PowerPoint version 2003 and older. All of the principals will work with version 2007 but the locations of the tools will differ. Most of the tools have been moved up to the top of the screen into the Ribbon.
