Dear David and Mathgroup, I too have had trouble with
disappearing images in PowerPoint. My correspondence with
the folks at Tech Support appears below.

I tried the following.

Display["tmp",Show[Graphics[Raster[{{1,0},{0,1}}]]],"PICTPS"]

I inserted the picture "tmp" into a
Microsoft PowerPoint 98 presentation.
On-screen, the picture is invisible.

    I was wondering if you could try to print the PICTPS from Powerpoint
and tell me if the printout looks okay or if it is just a screen display
problem.

It is invisible on the printout, too.
