Hi,
I need to develop JAVA code which will read PPT file to extract images and create PDF file. I am using POI and iText libraries. But I am facing problem in extracting images along with markings on them. Is there any way to extract image along with markings or is there any way to convert entire slide into image using POI..?

Extracting images from PPT files is pretty straightforward; it sounds as if you have that working.

Can you be more specific what you mean by "markings"?

You can't attach a file here. You need to put it on some public server, and then you can put a link to it here.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
