Any Powerpoint experts?

A rather urgent question. For a project at work, I would need to extract GIF-files from a PPT-file. The files I need are banners (supposedly animated GIFS) that have been placed inside a Powerpoint-presentation.

I can right click and select copy, but my graphics editor won't let me paste anything. I know I can take a screenshot and work from there, but that wouldn't include the animation. Any ideas? Thanx.

Try to find a new graphics editor (I'm sure there is a free one that allows pasting of gifs).

Also, try saving the presentation as a webpage. It might keep the gifs as gifs. I've never tried it though so I'm not sure.

It doesn't let me paste in Photoshop either, so I guess Powerpoint's the problem in that case. But let me try the webpage approach, good idea! Thanks.
