Hi Karen.........we tried this. PPT could not open the file.

Yes, this was my thinking too.......tried this first thing but no go. PPT
still puts the imported image through some kind of conversion shredder.
And the only scaling tool I could find only allowed for either horizontal
or vertical 'stretching' but not both simulatanously...so proportional
scaling was not an option. Jaynie
