Select the slide then right click on the image and select "Save as 
Picture" near the bottom of the menu. If you're lucky this will work - 
I've tried this with 3 different MS Powerpoint files and it worked fine 
with two of them but didn't even give me the "Save as Picture" option 
with the other one :-(

Right click on a blank piece of the KDE desktop and select "Configure 
Desktop". This should open with the "Change the background settings" 
icon highlighted. In the "Background" section click the "Picture" radio 
button and click the folder icon on the right to browse to your 
selected image.
