In PowerPoint, we were able to Save our Presentation Slides in many other Formats including Image Files such as JPEG, Bmp, Emf, TIf and many others. Now we can also Save our Presentations Slides as SVG Files. Procedure that will be described in the following post.

How To Save Your Presentation as an Outline in PowerPoint

First of all, what is a SVG File: A file with the SVG file extension is most likely a Scalable Vector Graphics file. Files in this format use an XML-based text format to describe how the image should appear. Since text is used to describe the graphic, an SVG file can be scaled to different sizes without losing quality—in other words, the format is resolution independent. This is why website and print graphics are often built in the SVG format, so they can be resized to fit different designs in the future. Source:

Once the Change File Type command is selected from the Export area of the task pane, at the right we can see most of the available File Types that we can change our Presentation into. This area is separated into three categories of File Types which are the following:

  • Presentation File Types
  • Image File Types
  • Other File Types

In order for us to Save our Presentation as an SVG Image File, we must select the Save As command located under the area named Other File Types as shown in the image below.
