  3. Get the thumbnail image of the referenced slide on a specified scale.
  4. Save the thumbnail image in any desired image format.

 string FilePath = @"..\..\..\Sample Files\";

string srcFileName = FilePath + "Slide Thumbnail to JPEG.pptx";

string destFileName = FilePath + "Slide Thumbnail to JPEG.jpg";

//Instantiate a Presentation class that represents the presentation file

using (Presentation pres = new Presentation(srcFileName))


    //Access the first slide

    ISlide sld = pres.Slides[0];

    //Create a full scale image

    Bitmap bmp = sld.GetThumbnail(1f, 1f);

    //Save the image to disk in JPEG format

    bmp.Save(destFileName, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);
