Hi All, 

I have a PC running microsoft 365  personal OS with with newest microsoft office and powerpoint as part of the package. In addition, I have adobe cloud, with the most up to date photoshop. 

 

My question is this, I have PSD files that I am trying to move in to powerpoint files so that my colleagues can work with them and edit them etc in powerpoint. The files are native to and have been created in PSD originally. 

 

The trouble i am having is that I can export my files and convert my files in to powerpoint, but then it only does so as an image, and so it is not editable, and can not be worked with. I have spoken to adobe support and they said to come here, they try their own fix, but did not work as it says user cancelled action even though i did not. 

 

I would appreciate any help you can give.

Powerpoint has no tools for working with layered image files so you will not be able to edit PSDs in Powerpoint.

How complex are the layouts? 

Why are you and your colleagues using different programs?

Thank you for replying, 

the layouts are not that complex, although do involve several layers in photoshop. We are using different programs because of our differing proficiencies. They are much better in powerpoint than photoshop. 

 

I normally export to Adobe DC so in to pdf format directly. So i use photoshop to edit, and then move to pdf.

So you export a pdf from Photoshop, open it in Acrobat and export a ppt from that?

Could you please post screenshots of the image in Photoshop with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible? 

Are there Type Layers, Shape Layers, … or just »plain« pixel Layers?

Since you have Adobe Photoshop, is there a reason you are not making the edits there? It's made for the use (so to speak) while Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft PowerPoint are not. You can choose "Edit With > Adobe Photoshop" from Adobe Acrobat, but you will not be working on the original and you will be working on a flat file.

 

The best way to edit the layered image is with Adobe Photoshop since you already have it. Can you tell us why this is not working for you?

You can't do what you want. I realize that some people who only know Office will use Excel or Powerpoint as a graphics and layout program but you can't edit a PSD file in Powerpoint.

Nor, with no colour management, is it a good application for graphics where colour matters.

Two completely different worlds that don't go well together. At best you can try to export separate layers as PNGs using Export for Screen & Devices and reassemble them in PPT, but that is pretty much it. In the past your could open PSDs to a limited degree in MS Designer and copy & paste stuff from there to PPT, but apparently MS has long cancelled this product.
