What resolution should I make my images for PowerPoint slide shows?
If you've asked this question and gotten answers like "Just scan your images at 96 dpi," I'll have to ask you to push your brain's Restart button. You need to clear your head of all that dpi stuff because for PowerPoint purposes, it's wrong, irrelevant, confusing (choose any three). Working out the right size for images in PowerPoint is a lot simpler than some people try to make it sound. The Basic Rule is this: For images that fill the slide, the image size (in pixels) should be equal to the video screen's resolution.

Changing a File Association, Repairing broken File Associations
Problem You doubleclick a document file and the wrong program opens, or the file opens in an incorrect mode (ie, a PowerPoint Show file opens in PowerPoint Edit mode), or your PowerPoint files have the wrong icon. Or you get a message explaining something about how Windows doesn't know what to do with this type of file. Resolution Problems viewing PPT/PPS files in Outlook/Outlook Express If you're trying to view a PPT or PPS file you received as an email attachment in Outlook or Outlook Express AND you have the free PowerPoint 2003 Viewer (but not PowerPoint) installed AND you have Windows XP SP2 (or higher) and see a message like "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel." This can occur if you're using Outlook Express under Windows XP Service Pack 2 and have only the free PowerPoint Viewer (not PowerPoint itself) installed. Problems viewing/opening PPT/PPS files in PowerPoint Try "re-registering" PowerPoint. Quit PowerPoint if it's running. Choose Start, Run Type the full path to your Powerpnt.EXE file (surrounded by quotation marks) followed by /regserver -- usually this will look like "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Powerpnt.exe" /regserver PowerPoint will start and re-register itself, including resetting the correct file associations Hint: if you don't know the exact path, click Browse, then navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office and look for Powerpnt.exe there; select it and click Open; the full path is automatically added to the Run box for you. If you can't find Powerpnt.exe there, use Windows Explorer to Search for it. If you have PowerPoint 2000 or later, you can run Detect and Repair instead of messing with file paths. It takes a bit longer but does a more thorough job of repairing broken file associations. Start PowerPoint and choose Help, Detect and Repair from the main menu. Follow the instructions from there. If you run Windows Vista, you have to turn off UAC before running "PowerPnt.exe /regserver". These PowerPoint versions will not be able to modify the registry to set the file associations straight if UAC is on. Turning UAC off allows them to modify the registry. Don't forget to reset UAC to your desired settings afterwards. Manually repairing file associations Manually repairing file associations You'll need to be able to view file extensons in Windows Explorer to follow the instructions below. If you don't see file extensions, do the steps in Improving the view in Windows Explorer then come on back here for the rest. First, start Windows Explorer (right-click Start, click Explore) Browse to locate a file of the type you're having problems with. The next steps will depend on the version of Windows you have. Windows XP/XP Home: Right click on the file and select "Open With" from the pop-up menu Select "Choose Program" Locate the program you want Windows to use to open files of this type and select it Put a checkmark next to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file". Click OK Other Windows versions: Click on the file to select it. Hold down the SHIFT key while you right-click the same file. Choose Open With from the pop-up menu. In the Open With dialog box, locate the program you want Windows to use to open files of this type and select it. Put a checkmark next to "Always use this program to open files of this type" Click OK You can also get to the root of the problem by editing the Open action for the file association directly: Use Windows Explorer to locate a PowerPoint PPT file. Click once to highlight it. From the menu bar, choose Tools, Folder Options In the Options dialog box, click the File Types tab Scroll through the Registered File Types list to Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation and double-click it (or if using Windows 2000, click it then click Advanced in the area below). In the resulting Edit File Type dialog box, double-click Open in the Actions list. In the text box labeled Application used to perform action, you should see "X:\abc\def\PowerPnt.EXE" "%1" where X:\abc\def\ represents the full path to the folder where PowerPnt.EXE is located. If you don't know the exact path, use the Browse button and locate PowerPnt.EXE. The quote marks should be entered exactly as shown. One set of quotes around the path to PowerPnt.EXE, another set around "%1" Click OK and/or Close until you're back in Windows Explorer. Now try doubleclicking the problem PowerPoint file again. Notes: You may want to perform the same steps for PPS as well as PPT files. If you're having problems with some other application's files, substitute the appropriate file type and application names above. You can also set Print and sometimes other actions here. If the Open action setting was incorrect, the others may be as well. It's particularly important to have the %1 surrounded by quote marks. Problem Windows uses the file's extension (the .XXX part at the end of the file name) to determine what type of file it is. For example, .PPT files are PowerPoint presentations, .PDFs are Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format files and so on. Windows also uses the file's extension to determine what program to open when you doubleclick a file of that type. The combination of Extension + File Type + Program to use when opening a file type is called an association. Windows "associates" a file of a certain extension with a program. Sometimes other programs "hijack" your file associations. By following the steps above, you re-associate the file type with the program you want Windows to use to open it.
