Is it possible for me to extract the background image from a

Hi Ace!

Yup, it sure is possible. Here's what I would do ---

1 - Make blank PowerPoint slide using the background you want. 
2 - Save As: jpg 
3 - Open in Photoshop - manipulate as necessary. to get it back into PowerPoint? Your best bet would be to use:

Insert --> Picture from file. 

Good luck with your presentation!

Open the tamplate and then save the file as jpg. Then you can use any
graphics program to cut scripts from the picture.
