I've no idea but you're more than welcome to pm me the link to the website and your e-mail address and i'll e-mail you a jpeg of the picture :thumbsup:

right click on the image on the web page and click save as .... save it somewhere you will find it

to place image as background for the whole presentation
open powerpoint then
1. Choose View > Master > Slide Master to display the slide master.
2. Choose Format > Background.
3. Click the drop-down list and choose Fill Effects.
4. On the Picture tab, click the Select Picture tab to choose an image file.

to include as just an image in a slide
1. Display the slide.
2. Choose Insert > Picture > From File and choose an image file to insert.
3. Select the image and move it to the desired location.

You can just save the photo to your HDD and then copy and paste into the powerpoint document.

or do what faevilangel says!!

Excellent! Cheers I was missing that!

Hi, you can right click or ctrl-click (the lowest button on the left) on the image and 'save as' to your desktop or pictures folder, then incorporate the image into powerpoint using 'insert picture'. If that doesn't work, go to applications>utilities>grab, go back to your web page, select 'grab' in the dock, then select capture> selection, then drag across the image. The picture should then pop up, save it as a jpeg, then insert it into your powerpoint.
Hope this helps

Cheers for that, like the grab thing didn't know it was there!

Or more easily just right-click on the picture, select copy and then paste it into your presentation.
