Default How to optimize the size of a slide for export?

-edited and updated-

Hi there,

Hoping I can find some answers here . . .

After reading a few other threads that popped up as suggestions from posting this one, I corrected some terminology in this thread for clarity.

To be clear, I'm just working with a slide composed of text and lines. No images (photographs) here.

I'm using Powerpoint 2020 to create some templates for use in an e-ink device (reMarkable 2). Powerpoint is working well to create these templates (or "slides"). When finished, I need to save them as .png files for import into the reMarkable 2 e-ink device. If I understand this correctly, the Powerpoint .pptx file is a vector graphic, and when I save to a .png file type, it is converted to a raster graphic.

I'm not sure how Powerpoint sizes a slide when it is being saved as a .png file type. Does anybody know? There doesn't seem to be an ability to specify a dimensional size, dpi, nor a pixel count.

The spec I have for creating these templates for the reMarkable 2 is that they should be sized at 1404 pixels wide by 1875 pixels high (pretty-much a letter format). I can resize a slide after Powerpoint saves it as a .png, but I'm thinking there might be a way to optimize the size of my slide (or "canvas" to use a PhotoShop term) in Powerpoint such that there is little to no size adjusting required after I've saved it in Powerpoint as a .png file for export. This effort is simply for the sake of generating the .png raster file with the cleanest text and lines, because it will not have gone through significant image resizing.

Anybody have any pointers on this?
