When you view a PowerPoint presentation, you may notice that one or more of your graphics are not displayed. Instead, you may see a placeholder for the graphic that contains the following message:
Most likely, the graphic is using a QuickTime compression scheme, such as JPEG. With PowerPoint for the Macintosh, you can import PICT graphics that use JPEG compression. Adobe PhotoShop and some other graphic programs can save PICT files with JPEG compression.
If you move a presentation that contains one of these graphics to another computer or a different platform, you may encounter this problem. These PICT-JPEG files require QuickTime to display, or decompress the image. The image filter that is used by PowerPoint 97 and Office 97 does not support the QuickTime compression scheme. You must use the resolution specified in this article to resolve the problem.
Reimport the graphic without JPEG compression. To do this, follow these steps.
NOTE: The following example uses Adobe PhotoShop version 3.0 and Microsoft PowerPoint 98 Macintosh Edition.
