Are you going out to 35mm slides or running a computer screen show? If you
are going to 35mm slides, your image area can be 2000 pixels wide by 1333
pixels high or 4000 x 2666 pixels. Based upon how much of the image area in
PowerPoint you will be covering on the slide, figure out how many pixels
wide you would need to have the image. Im Photoshop, under Image size, you
can change the size of the image to pixels and know exactly how many you
have on your imported image. If you are doing a computer screen show, the
image area resolution is reduced to what ever the resolution is on your
monitor.....usually 800 x 600 pixels or 640 x 480 you would
adjust your image size to that. Pixels are the computer equivalent sort of
to the dpi of print. I use and teach PowerPOint here at UNL. Any more
questions just let me know. Good luck.
