Summarizing Slides as Thumbnails

Summarizing Slides as Thumbnails

This is a sample script for summarizing Slides as thumbnails. For example, it supposes a Slides including 15 pages. When this script is run, it summarizes 6 pages to one page as images. I created this because there are no methods for directly achieving this. This is useful for myself. If this is also useful for you, I'm glad.

The flow of this workaround is as follows.


  1. Copy the original Slides file as a temporary file.
  2. Retrieve images of all slides.
    • When the Slides file is exported to PNG file, the top page is exported as PNG file. I used this.
  3. Put and arrange the retrieved images to the temporary file.
