  1. I have try to make this programme but i can, first i have download the other jars and then i have compiled ths programme,without fails but there i didn’t have any idea for where did i put the ppt file and how we can make the pic ?
    thanks again

    • Hi Amine,

      ppt = new SlideShow(new HSLFSlideShow(“Screenshot.ppt”));

      Instead of Screenshot.ppt name give the full file path name of yours ppt file.
      For ex : ppt = new SlideShow(new HSLFSlideShow(“c:\\foldername\filename.ppt”));

      Thanks & Regards

    those are the jars that i have used :


    else please tell me the right jars.

    Have a nice day.

    • Hi Amine,

      Sorry for the delay
      “jackrabbit-standalone-1.5.0.jar” jar is enough.
      don’t forget to remove all other jar from your reference/lib folder.

      If u have any query please let me know.

  5. Finley said:

  6. it is extracting all the images from ppt but i want to convert each slides as a image like (png or jpg)with out using java awt and image io library pls reply soon

    Thank You

  7. One more thing: I tried ur code. Looks like everything thing is working fine but not able to find the output images. I manually created the lib folder in my project.

    • Hi Mrana,

      Sorry for the late replay,

      It is not an issue. We need to create manually the Lib folder. Regarding the output result, check the path which you have mentioned here
      out = new FileOutputStream(“pict_”+ i + ext);“.
      If you are using the same code then you can get the result image in the porject folder itself, after running the application refresh the page.

      If you have any concern let me know.

  8. I tried the above link for ppt to pdf conversion but getting errors in connection from their side.Its not listening to any request. So could u suggest any other way of converting the ppt/x,doc/x into pdf.

    I am getting null value ( PictureData[] pdata ) for pdata,

    i.e ppt.getPicturedata(); returning null value.

    Because of null values i am getting null pointer Exception in console and program

    terminated abnormally

    please share answer for this query

    • Hi Rathan

      Check configured file is existing on the same path or not. You will get the Null pointer exception when file is not exist on the specific path.

      Please let me know if you have any concern.

      • rathan said:
