PDF is super useful, but sometimes exporting a map book series to JPG, TIFF, or perhaps other options may be useful for users.
This was available in DS map books, please bring this functionality back sp users don't need to add the step of exporting from the PDF file.
For your extended idea you could still use the arcpy ExportToJPEG function to generate the JPEG/PNG files and combine the outputs with the python-pptx library to create a Powerpoint file.
This is also a desired ability in ArcGIS Pro. I have written up this as an Idea for ArcGIS Pro that has been tagged as duplicative of this request.I sure hope it doesn't take 8 years and persist in the next version of ESRI software without a solution other than code it yourself.Share & Export All Pages of Map Series ArcGIS Pro to JPG, etc.
We've pretty much got our operations transitioned from ArcMap to ArcPro. We've generated several map series in ArcPro, outputting to PDF. Works great. Now we need a series of 170 PNG map images for our web site. I thought that surely we could also use the ArcPro Map Series functionality, and just choose a different output format. Apparently not so at present. This would seem to me to be logical functionality to have. I guess now, my options are 1) find an efficient way to create images from PDF, 2) export map series maps to PNG format one by one, or 3) figure out how to accomplish this via Python.
FYI, File format options for PDF export, Adobe Acrobat
I'm using Pro's Map Series to produce maps for our staff archeologists to use in the field. Paper pdfs are helpful, but I need georeferenced output that can be used by Avenza and Trimble Terrasync as background files. To get those, I have to page through the series, activate the map frame and export each map separately. Being able to batch export, with world files, would be a huge time saver. I'll take a look at the python possibilities, but I don't have time to learn much about coding.
