Select the size of the slide according to the size of the slide to be created. For example, I chose a custom size with a width and length of 15 cm x 15 cm. This will later be an image with a resolution of approximately 567 x 567 pixels. If you need a larger resolution, just enter more numbers. For example, a size of 30 x 30 cm will result in a poster with larger pixels.

After determining the size, then you just need to be creative with all the menus in PowerPoint. Sorry, in this tutorial the example is very simple hehe. After it is enough, then save the PPT first so you don’t lose the main file. Just press Ctrl + S.

Next, if you want to save the slide as an image, just click File -> Save As. Name the file and specify the folder where the poster will be saved. Next in the file type column, look for JPG or PNG format so that the slide is saved as an image.

The Which slides do you want to export? menu will appear. All slides means all slides will be saved as images. Just This One means that only the slide that you are currently editing will be saved as an image. Adjust needs.

To make a good poster, you just need to create according to your creativity and also the needs of each friend. Good luck!
