Thread: Power Point Slides for Camtasia

    Default Power Point Slides for Camtasia

    Hi!

    I use Power Point Slides that are saved as .JPG files and, then, imported to Camtasia to create YouTube videos.

    Right now, the Slides are 10 inches by 5-5/8 inches and are saved at 96 PPI.

    What Size (in inches) and what Resolution (in PPI) should I be using?

    Thanks!

    Size in inches is only relevant for printed material. On a computer screen it's all about ppi and 96 is about right. You now have to decide on the largest screen resolution you are likely to have it displayed on (eg 4K, 1920x1080) and design it for that.
    Having said that 1920x1080 wont look dreadful on a 4K screen.

    Hey Tim!

    I realize that Inches are not relevant to JPG Images; Pixel Size and PPI are. But, in my dated copy of Power Point, I have to work with Inches.

    After some research, I settled on a Slide Page Size of 20" by 11-1/4." At 96 PPI (which is the Power Point default), the resulting JPG Image is 1920 px by 1080 px w/ an Aspect Ratio of 16:9.

    What do you think?
