Power BI add-in to Powerpoint: Automate 'Show as Saved Image'



I have a powerpoint presentation that is updated each month and that has several embedded Power BI visuals that I have added in to the powerpoint using the Power BI add-in within Powerpoint. 


My question is if there is an automated method by which I can convert all the power BI visuals within the presentation to static pictures? I was thinking a macro but am open to any ideas.


I will save a template version of the powerpoint which will have the live visuals, so I do not mind if the solution is irreversible.


Hopefully this made sense, any thoughts/advice is very much appreciated!

Is this a one-off, or are you thinking of every month?   What is the count of slide decks, and the number of visuals?  



Thinking every month. At least 10 presentations, ~30 slides per presentation, 1-2 visuals per slide.
