Simple instructions for using PowerPoint to make JPEG images (file extension .jpg) that can be inserted into a Word documents for conversion into Connexions modules.

Concept and background

Educational materials can be greatly enhanced with graphical images. A picture is worth a thousand words. They are easy to create and many will use the JPEG format (Joint Photographic Experts Group which uses the .jpg file extension, pronounced Jay Peg).

The JPEG format is the best format for those photo images (or created images) which must be small files, for example, for web sites or for email. The JPEG file is wonderfully small, often compressed to perhaps only 1/10 of the size of the original data, which is a good thing when modems are involved. However, this fantastic compression efficiency comes with a high price. JPEG uses lossy compression (lossy meaning "with losses to quality"). Lossy means that some image quality is lost when the JPEG data is compressed and saved.

The process described below saves the images created as JPEG files, but could be used to create GIF files (Graphical Interchange Format which uses the .gif file extension) or PNG files (Portable Network Graphics format which uses the .png file extension). Both the GIF and PNG formats can be used within Connexions directly or as images inserted into Word documents that are converted into Connexions modules. The GIF format uses fewer colors and is often of a slightly lower quality than JPEG but smaller in size. The PNG format is about 50% larger in size with only slightly (almost unperceivable) better clarity. The JPEG format will usually give adequate results.

Creating a jpeg using microsoft powerpoint 2007

To keep things simple, we suggest that you use a separate PowerPoint file for each image. The following image was created using PowerPoint 2007, saved as a Screen_Shot.pptx file then saved again using “Saved As” as a Screen_Shot.jpg file. You simple hit the drop down box on “Save as type” and scroll to JPEG. When the “Save as type” is changed to JPEG, you click on the normal “Save” and the pop-up box to the right appears and you select “Current Slide Only”.

Saving a PowerPoint Slide as a JPEG File

Example

In addition to the screen shot slide shown above, the following slide was created using PowerPoint and saved as a JPEG file to help explain the Integrated Development Environment of a C++ compiler. The image was simply inserted into the Word Document that was used to create the Connexions module.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.

what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
