Quicktime decompressor is required to see this photo error message

MAC USERS NOTE:

If you're using a MAC with Office 2008, Powerpoint, sometimes the pictures don't come with the files when you attempt to open it in Windows Office Powerpoint 2003.

You will see the following error message:

"Quicktime decompressor is required to see this photo"

DOWNLOADING QUICKTIME DOESN'T HELP!

Here's the workaround:

On the MAC side:
1. Save As > select Options >Uncheck the Graphics compression checkbox at the bottom -

2. Save AS > PTTX

On PC Office 2007

1. Open pptx

2. Save as ppt office 97-2003

If you need quick access to a MAC with PC to convert this, stop in to the CIDDE, BGS 249 to make the conversion listed above: :O)
