Can anyone tell me whether it is possible to change the default Save As Picture type from PNG to another file type e.g. jpeg? In other words, when I right click onto a picture which I want to save to file, PowerPoint always defaults to PNG which I don't want. Many thanks in advance.

I have created a small simple diagram (using boxes, text and lines) in powerpoint 2003 - I have then grouped all the shapes. The diagram has no background and is on a white page. When I right-click on the diagram there is an option of 'Save as picture' and save it as a jpg format - it adds a black background to the jpg. I have done a bit of googling and found a few other reports of this issue but no real solution. If I save as png format it looks fine but I really need it as jpg. Any ideas?
