While Exporting a presentation to JPG or PNG or other graphic formats, Impress only exports selected slide.
In fact there is a selection checkbox in the export dialog but it doesn't work.
Ms Office has a good export dialog. First it asks to export current slide or every slide in the presentation, then if you select every slide it creates a new folder and exports slides into that folder and gives slide names number order.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a slide show including multiple slides
2. Click File - Export and select jpg or png as file type
Exports only one slide
Export all slides, or selected range
Operating System: All
Version: 220.127.116.11 release
Yes, this should be supported but we should think about how to actually do this. I think we should generally add "export as image" to the menu similar to how we already have "export as PDF". With this we can add a custom export dialog where we could first decide what to export with which parameters and then ask where to export and in what way.

@Björn can this be an easyhack?

Only if you find a mentor. Please do so politely on the development channel, as doing this on bugzilla makes too much noise. UnCCing myself.

Can you please increase the priority on this? It's going on 4 years without any action and I think it's a pretty important function. I think people need to spend a little more time on this, instead of "A toolbar control to insert Emojis" that we got in the just released update.
It seems my bug #105359 is a duplicate. Along the fact that the file dialogue has a slide selection option that is not honoured, let me add a "use case", let me explain why I need the feature:
For external presentations I need high-fidelity slides. The easiest way to achieve that is to export slides as images and convert them back to pdf using imagemagick.
Ordinary PDF export does not cut it for me as I don't want to run ever again into font issues during presentations and I also do not like extractable, google-indexed text, esp. when the slide deck contains email addresses and I know that the organizers of the conference will put the slides on their web site. Furthermore, there are export fidelity bugs (or "missing features") that I work around by exporting to an image format and then manually putting them together as a pdf, namely the problem that textbackground is not exported (which I enjoy to use for presentations).
Right now I am forced to manually export each an every single slide to png. That is quite inconvenient.

The request is almost six years old and all that happened is to mark similar reports as duplicates...
ILESAVE: Exporting as JPG or PNG exports only selected slide --
This has its usefulness as is. I may have 30 or 40 slides in a file and only want to export one of them, not all of them.
I agree that an option should exist for a multi-file output to export all slides, but don't take away the per-slide export functionality we have now.
*** Bug 130084 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
There is an old extension for LibreOffice that saves all slides at one time called "Export As Images 0.9.3"
Why not just roll that functionality into the product?
For Comment 11 and Comment 14: LO is volunteer driven. Extension needs to be rewritten. Questions (as understandable as they are) are just a noise.
QA has some method of raising importance by a number of duplicates or CC list. I guess this should be High. But regardless until volunteer takes this.

The feature is in LibreOffice if you Export to HTML - It will export all the slides to JPG/PNG and put them in the folder. HOWEVER, the highest resolution they export to is 1024x768.
***All I ask is that someone add another radio button to the HTML export menu to add 1920x1080 as a choice***
I can't imagine something like this would take terribly long to implement as you're simply running the same methods with bigger numbers.
It just seems like the export menu hasn't been touched in years and could use an update for this generation's display technology.
Hi! I may add another button with the desired resolution. Any idea how to call it? Very High? Full HD? FHD?

I added the FHD option to the HTML-Export-Wizard, but it is only a workaround. In the future the export wizard maybe dropped as proposed in https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=105303.
However, there could be an option in the jpg and png export dialogue, where you can select the range of the exported slides, for instance, "All slides", "Slides (From To)" and "Selection" similar to the printer dialogue.

Or for PNG and other graphical formats, something akin to this?
Andreas Heinisch committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#67614 - Added the FHD image resolution
It will be available in 7.2.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.

I'd prefer to have this "export all slides to image" as an extension.

Then someone, a third party not directly involved with the Document Foundation, would need to invent and maintain it. Result: feature death the moment the person becomes bored, distracted, or otherwise just no longer wants to maintain it.
Heaping useful features on the community to maintain, rather than mainstreaming them into the product itself, touches upon a real and endemic problem with open-source software endeavors: the haphazard, and eventual discontinuation, of support.
A programmer at the Document Foundation could look at the current export option, see there's only 6 lines more lines of code to add, and be done with it, rather than foisting the work on a fickle network of volunteers building, maintaining, and eventually running away from the extensions they create.
