Convert PPT to JPG in Java

In this section, we are going to render the PowerPoint presentation in JPG format. Please follow the steps defined below.

  • Firstly, create an object of SlidesApi where we pass ClientID and ClientSecret details as arguments.
  • Secondly, create an object of PutSlideSaveAsRequest class.
  • Thirdly, call the setFormat(…) method of PutSlideSaveAsRequest and pass JPEG value from SlideExportFormat enumeration.
  • Now call the setName(…) method of PutSlideSaveAsRequest class to provide name of input PPTX file.
  • In order to specify the name of the resultant file, use the setOutPath(…) method from PutSlideSaveAsRequest class.
  • Penultimate, call the setSlideIndex(..) method and specify the index of the PowerPoint slide to be converted.
  • Finally, call the putSlideSaveAs(…) method of SlidesAPi class and pass PutSlideSaveAsRequest object as an argument.

Convert PPT to PNG in Java

With the pretty much similar approach, we can also convert PowerPoint to PNG format. In the following example, we are going to discuss the details of how to upload a PowerPoint presentation from a local system and convert it to PNG format in the cloud.

  • First, we need to create an object of SlidesApi which takes ClientID and ClientSecret as input arguments.
  • The next step is to load a Presentation file from local storage into a byte[] array.
  • Create an instance of PutExportSlideRequest class.
  • In order to specify the output format, please use setFormat(….) method of PutExportSlideRequest class and pass the PNG value from SlideExportFormat enumeration.
  • The input file is passed using setDocument(…) method, which takes a byte[] array as an argument.
  • Now we need to specify the index of the slide to be converted using the setSlideIndex(..) method.
  • In order to specify the name of the resultant file, use the setOutPath(…) method.
  • Finally, call the putExportSlide(…) method, which takes the PutExportSlideRequest object as an argument to perform the conversion.

PowerPoint to JPG using cURL Commands

Using the Aspose.Slides Cloud API and cURL commands for PowerPoint to JPG conversion provides numerous benefits. Firstly, it is highly convenient, as the API is readily accessible from anywhere with an internet connection. Additionally, it is highly accurate and produces high-quality output files, ensuring that your converted images are professional and visually appealing. Another advantage of this approach is that it saves time and resources by automating the conversion process, eliminating the need for manual conversion or use of third-party tools. Finally, the API is highly customizable, with numerous options for tweaking the output files to meet your specific requirements.

Now in this approach, the first step is to generate a JSON Web Token (JWT) based on your ClientID and ClientSecret details. So, please execute the following command in the terminal to generate the JWT token.

curl -v "" \
-d "grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=718e4235-8866-4ebe-bff4-f5a14a4b6466&client_secret=388e864b819d8b067a8b1cb625a2ea8e" \
-H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
-H "Accept: application/json"

Once we have the JWT token, use the following command to convert existing PowerPoint in Cloud storage to JPG format. We have used [PostSlidesSplit][12] API which splits the presentation file and creates an image of each slide.

In our scenario, we have provided a range from slides 1 to 1.

curl -X POST "" \
-H  "accept: application/json" \
-H  "authorization: Bearer <JWT Token>" \
-H  "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d "{  \"DefaultRegularFont\": \"string\",  \"Format\": \"jpeg\"}"
