It's not the setting you used to create the PDF that is the issue, it's the setting when you export the PDF page as an image.

You have two places to set this resolution 1) in your Acrobat Preferences under Convert from PDF, which sets the defaults. or 2) at the time you export each page. If you have set the resolution too high, you can easily generate an image with too many pixels for Acrobat to generate; certainly more than you would ever need in a PNG. e.g.: a 33cm wide image at 300 ppi would give you about 3800 pixels width, So check that first and report back.

I do not exactly understand what you are doing. 

 

Do you want to save a PDF page as a PNG image? What is the size of your page and the resolution you want to have?

Thanks, I am trying to examine the attribute of this Shape which is causing PowerPoint to close pre-maturely. Since PowerPoint has limited capability to show its attribute, I have tried saving it to a image file which does not show any problem. Then, I tried Export this PowerPoint to PDF, then use Adobe Export to Image. 

Am I wrong to assume that the image in my PDF is exact replicate from the PowerPoint Slide it came from?  If so, then I stop using Adobe Export to Image.

Not sure what you mean by "Shape" causing an issue.

 

"Am I wrong to assume that the image in my PDF is exact replicate from the PowerPoint Slide it came from?"

Correct... The image in the PDF is not the orginal image. It is reprocessed and resampled as necessary. It is no longer the original file.

As for "Page", when you save your PP as a PDF, each slide becomes a page. Exportng each of these pages as a PNG renders the entire page, not just the image.

 

In any case, I think you've derailed yourself to a path that's not what you want to do.

If you are simply trying to troubleshoot a photo placed in PP, and you don't have access to the original file, you can still access what's now embedded in the PowerPoint file. (Copying and pasting from PP to something like Photsohop does not necessarily give the image in high resolution, nor does selecting the image in PP and right-click "Save as Picture".) .

Instead, a PP document (.pptx) is actually a zipped archive of XML components that comprise the document. If you rename the extension to ".zip", you can now unzip the contents. Inside there will a bunch of folders. One is "ppt", inside of which is a folder: "media". Your images will be in there. They will have generic names now e.g. "image1.jpg". Caveat: PowerPoint may have already downsampled the original image anyway (commonly 150ppi or 96ppi, depending on your PP prefernces but what you find in the "media:" folder is the best you're gonna get.

Obviously, if you DO have the original file, and it's causing a corruption, just reopen it in Photoshop and save a new copy of it and replace the one in your PP document.

Regradless, it seems your problem is with Microsoft and PowerPoint, not Adobe, so you might want to chat with them about your issue.

Thanks,

  1. Why is Page relevant when exporting PDF to Image?
  2. Is it possible resolution from PDFMaker is different from PowerPoint ?

The two images from PDFMaker is a Title and Excel Chart pasted to PowerPoint Slide; 33cm wide 2.82cm high; 28.83cm wide 16.39 cm high. Why would such a typical slide create this problem?
