Hi, Dan

I didn't see Bill's message, but here's what I'd do:

If you're on OS X:
Print the PowerPoint file as a Postscript file, then open it in Preview.
Preview will convert the .ps to a .pdf. Do a Save As to save the file,
then open it in any line art application (Illustrator or FreeHand will do)
or in Photoshop. Edit and save as TIFF or EPS and you're done.

If you're on OS 9 or using Windows:
Print the PowerPoint file as a Postscript file, then convert it to PDF
using Adobe Distiller. Open the PDF in a line art application or in
Photoshop, edit as needed and save as TIFF or EPS. That's it.
