When you view a PowerPoint presentation, you may notice
that one or more of your graphic images are not displayed. Instead, you may see
a placeholder for the graphic that contains the following message:
QuickTime(TM) and a Photo - JPEG decompressor are needed
to see this picture.
Most likely, the graphic is using a QuickTime compression
scheme, such as JPEG. With PowerPoint for the Macintosh, you can import PICT
graphics that use JPEG compression. Adobe PhotoShop and some other graphic
programs can save PICT files with JPEG compression. If you move a presentation
that contains one of these graphics to another computer or a different
platform, you may encounter this problem. These files require QuickTime to
display or decompress the image. If QuickTime is not present, PowerPoint
displays the "QuickTime PICT" message.
Re-import the graphic without JPEG compression. To do this,
follow these steps. NOTE
: The following example uses Adobe PhotoShop version 3.0.
- Open the graphic in PhotoShop.
- On the File menu, click Save As.
- Select PICT file format, name the graphic, and then click
- In the PICT File Options dialog box, click None in the
- Click OK to save the graphic.
- Switch to or start PowerPoint.
- On the Insert menu, click Picture.
- Select the graphic and click Import.
: If you are using a Macintosh computer and see this message, you
should verify whether QuickTime is present. QuickTime, if correctly installed,
is located in the Extensions folder. If you are running System 7.5 or later,
run Extension Manager, located in the Control Panels folder, and verify that
QuickTime is enabled.
