Transferring from Mac to PC PowerPoint
From Mac Guides
A common problem when working between the Mac and Windows version of PowerPoint is when the file is created on the Mac version and it fails to load images in the Windows version. To fix this you are required to add images to the PowerPoint presentation without using drag and drop. To do this you should follow the instructions below.
- If the image is on a web page, save it to your computer first.
- In PowerPoint choose Insert > Picture > From File...
- Now navigate to the location of the image in the open panel, and select the image by clicking the Insert button.
This will save the image inside the PowerPoint file and when you open it on a Windows machine it will display just as it did on the Mac.
This is for the 2004 version of PowerPoint. It has apparently been fixed in Service Pack 1 for Office 2008
