I have a single PowerPoint slide and I want to print it as a poster (2ft by 3ft). I do not have a "Print as Poster" option in File/Print.

I would like to print the slide on multiple pages and then tape the pages together to create a poster.

Similar question: Good software for printing a poster?

Save the PowerPoint slide as a .jpeg and then use a different software (such as the ones mentioned in your link) to print as a poster.

In PowerPoint 2007 (or 2010): Go to the Ribbon Start Menu, click Save As, then Other Formats:

enter image description here

Then in the dialog box that appears, under where you can name the file, there is a drop-down menu for all the formats you can choose from:

enter image description here

Choose .jpeg (or another photo format), name the file, and choose Save. If you have more than one slide, it will ask you:

enter image description here

If you choose Every Slide, it will create a separate .jpeg for every slide and tell you where they are stored, like so:

enter image description here

(the blacked-listed text is the file location).

Then, as I suggested earlier, just open the photo in another program and print on multiple pages.

+1, but really you should save as a PNG if you're going to be printing it out afterwards -- don't want to lose any more quality than you have to! – Matthieu Cartier Jan 25 '11 at 19:24
okay, PNG then! it has an option for that too. – studiohack Jan 25 '11 at 19:31
