Let’s say that you have received a document from a friend, co-worker or customer with an image as part of the document that you would like to use again.
You may have a PowerPoint slide which you want to save in a picture format in order to add it to your Facebook page.
The following instructions show you how to quickly and easily achieve this using Microsoft Office products.  Instructions apply to the Office 2010 version however the concept remains the same for older versions.  Let me know if you have any problems and I will send you instructions for your particular version.
