Hi to all,

I need to write a Java program to convert Powerpoint slides into JPEGS. I've been looking at a variety of tools but I have not yet found what I'm looking for. I had hoped to use the Open Office API but then I learnt that the end result is not that good. So could you please let me know if you know of any good tool...it needs to have a Java API to it. I am willing to pay.

Thanks
Ernest

No, unfortunately not. Apache POI is cool, but its PPT support is nowhere near supporting conversion to images.

Thanks for the help folks. I have had to use a Windows application to do this. I invoke it as a Process through Runtime. It seems this is the only way of getting a good result so far as this application uses Powerpoint internally to do the conversion.

Happy New year!!
