    I understand PhotoBeamer only beams photos. Can you share some tricks to convert PowerPoint slides into photos, without using a PC?
    I tried "save as" option in Office on WP 8, but there is no option for saving slides as pictures.

    Using a computer, you can do a screen capture with the built-in Snippit and paste it into MS Paint or another program that can save into a JPG or GIF format.
    With your phone, just do a screen cap of each slide by hitting the Home and Power key on your phone at the same time. It will save under Screen Shots.

    Yes, but don't you think quality of the image will be very low? Plus, I'll have to capture screen shot for every slide.

    Screenshots are automatically saved as images in "screenshots" folder under camera.

    I guess it depends on the photo editor you're using. I also had to re edit my post and mention using your phone to do a screen cap that way.

    On PC you can directly save all yours slides as images using "save as" but there is no such option in Office on Windows Phone 8.
    I got your point about capturing screenshots but that is too clumsy.

    Can there be an app using which I can convert a pptx into some image!!

    Oh, What is that? I can't find any such app on WP Store here. Probably it is only available in the US or I may get it after black update.

    Ah, it's like photo beamer but you can share your entire device in real time. Well, as real time as your connection allows.

    It is, but it was in the store for me before I got black. Now that I have black it works great.
