in thread Using Perl to create a PowerPoint presentation

well I had to do a same sort of thing a year ago in powerpoint by hand (there are about 150 pictures which need to be put into this) and it took me a lot of work. I was hoping I could somehow automate this with perl (as it will come back every few months from now on)

    Try http://irfanview.com/ to batch-convert all of your pictures. It's free and works fine. I've no idea of how to automatically add all those shrinked pictures to your slides, but I wouldn't try to do it in perl. Alternatively I would try it in perl but without using Powerpoint. Maybe http://www.meyerweb.com/eric/tools/s5/ is a tool you would like to use for this kind of task, or the perl-based SPIP http://duehl.de/christian/perl/spip.html but it seems that there exists only a german documentation for it until now.
