LaTeX equations into PowerPoint

I use LaTeX for most of my writing and PowerPoint for presentations. That creates a problem because PPT does not recognize LaTeX. So, here is the solution one of my students found for me. Produce a PDF of the LaTeX document. Then, in Adobe Acrobat, Tools, Select & Zoom, Snapshot Tool, select the area with the equation, and you have an image in the Windows clipboard. When pasted into PPT will paste the image as a picture. In Acrobat Reader, Edit, Take a Snapshot, does the same.
