I am a software developer. I am particularly fond of the areas:

  • artificial intelligence, computer vision & machine learning
  • high end graphics & image processing
  • games

As this profile is now posted across multiple sites:

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, also known as a Mormon.
I am also a mathematician.
I quite like interesting games and enjoy playing them with those of my many wonderful children who are old enough. We will often edit what we might find to be sleazy in a game without altering the game play, which quite widens the range of games we can play while staying within what we consider to be gospel standards.

comment PPT to PNG with trasparent background
Skip past the "it can't be done" accepted answer to the next one. It can be done. The caveats are well worth the pain of trying to make the opaque background transparent on a slide exported to an image where the background remained opaque (quite difficult to do correctly because of aliasing).

comment PPT to PNG with trasparent background
Works in powerpoint 2013 as well. To get the image size you want you may want to put a border around each slide, as it appears to fit the image it creates to the selected objects. But excellent solution!
