When downloading a lightbox, if you select a Usage Type that has been configured with the 'can download as PPT/PPTX' option, you can download images and other PowerPoint files in your lightbox as a PowerPoint presentation.

When you select this usage type a new checkbox will appear called 'Download as PowerPoint Presentation' .
This will be checked by default (you can untick it if you want to download the images in a zip file as usual).
When this checkbox is checked each image will be added to the presentation on a new slide in the order they are shown in your lightbox.
If your lightbox contains PowerPoint files then these will be merged into the presentation, although note that PPTX files cannot be merged into a PPT file and vice versa.
