How to export binary image inside text area (created by R data function) to PowerPoint with IronPython

I've got a visualization that is geneated by an R data function and is displayed inside a text area. I would like to have a button with some IronPython code that allows the user to automatically export this graph to PowerPoint.

I can do this manually with File->Expot Data->To Microsoft PowerPoint in the menu. Likewise I can also succesfully export other Spotfire visualization with the following IronPython code below to PowerPoint which I've found from various scourves on the web. However for the graph in the Textare I'm gettin an error message (see error message below). 

I think the issues is caused on line 23 by the  vc.Render(g, r) and I should have probably a Graphis.PromInage()  property defined that works for the binary data type (line 18). Does anyone have some suggestions?



IronPtycon code that works for Spotfire visualization but not for binary type images rendered in the Text area:

from System.IO import *

from Spotfire.Dxp.Application.Visuals import VisualContent

from System.Drawing import Bitmap, Graphics, Rectangle, Point

import clr


import Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint as PowerPoint

powerpoint = PowerPoint.ApplicationClass()

powerpoint.Visible = True


slideCounter = 1

for visual in Document.ActivePageReference.Visuals:

    print visual.Title

    if visual.Title == 'RGraph':

        #export graphic to temp file

        vc = visual.As[VisualContent]()

        bm = Bitmap(2000, 1200)

        g = Graphics.FromImage(bm)

        r = Rectangle(Point(0,0), bm.Size)

        vc.Render(g, r)

        file = Path.GetTempFileName()



        #pp setup

        slide=pres.Slides.Add(slideCounter, PowerPoint.PpSlideLayout.ppLayoutTitleOnly)

        slideCounter = slideCounter+1

        slide.Shapes.AddPicture((file), False, True, 30, 60, 650, 400)
