The R functions png(), jpg() and bmp() will generate files that can be used in 
PowerPoint. Previews can be added to postscript files, using Ghostview and 
ImageMagik among others. I have done the latter in the past since the 
postscript files are of an excellent standard, and because I've wanted both to 
display and print a report. Having separate viewing and printing versions of 
graphs is not very convenient.
