images & PowerPoint
Images and presentations in LUNA
can be exported to a local computer or network drive. Images can
be exported individually or several at once. The file format is
jpg. When exported to a local computer or drive, they
can be inserted into classroom presentations using PowerPoint or as illustrations
in term papers. Please
read the Copyright information.
Presentations that are created and saved in LUNA can be exported to PowerPoint (or Keynote on a MAC). This allows the user to deliver the presentation off-line, especially useful in classrooms or lecture halls without network ports or for off-campus conferences or lectures. The exported presentations appear identical (linked images, details, etc.) to the on-line LUNA version. Version control can be a problem if changes are made to the Insight presentation after it has been exported. You will need to repeat the export if you make changes to the LUNA version.
Export an image from LUNA
- Perform your search and double-click on the thumbnail of the image you want to download. You will be taken to a page with a larger version of the image.
- Click the Export button on the top right.
- In the next window select Save File and click OK. The image will download to a folder on your desktop. The image size is appropriate for projection.
Export a presentation from Insight
- Select a presentation from a group, but do not open it in the Workspace. Highlight the presentation by clicking it once.
- Click File > Export presentation to PowerPoint
- Choose 1024 x 768 as a Resolution
- Select a location on your computer as the export destination (desktop, My Documents, etc.)
- The export generally takes 1-2 minutes to complete, however, if the presentation includes multiple details and more that 50 images, it could take an additional 5-10 minutes.
- A presentation cannot be exported if it is open in the Workspace, in Play Presentation or Edit Presentation.
- Selecting a higher Resolution when exporting a presentation will cause image-on-slide placement problems in PowerPoint
- If multiple images are placed on one PowerPoint slide (linked images in the Insight presentation), the PowerPoint slide cannot be modified (moving images around on a single slide).
