Well it is best to edit the item in Powerpoint first before moving to PDF. That said PrimoPDF is something that is free and easy to use. It acts as a printer.

Not sure that helps you though.

You should be able to edit most PDFs with the GIMP - you open them much like any other file. As for genuinely exporting from PDF into PPT freely, I wouldn't expect that's really available!

I don't know if this will do it but...

Openoffice3 has a new (beta) plugin that can allow pdfs to be opened in openoffice. But if I remember correctly the pdf had to be created using openoffice, maybe there is something you can still do there.

As for a generic pdf to ppt converter, I'd doubt a free one exists/will ever exist.

I for one welcome our new chicken overlord.

Thanks guys, I think GIMP may be the one.
