You can select either sRGB or Adobe RGG as the color profile used at export.
Select where the exported images will be stored by browsing to your desired directory. By default, it exports to the export folder located inside the application.
Press "Start Export" to begin the export process. Progress will be displayed at the bottom by progress bars, the top bar shows the total progress while the one just below it shows the progress of each page.
Export is finished when the percent (%) indicator says, "COMPLETE" and the progress bars are at max width.
You can now close the export window and verify the exported slides.
