Please help ... What is meant by 'save the day' here in this context? Thanks?

"To save the day" is a very old-established saying in British English (American etc, also?) meaning 'Making things wonderful, even if they didn't seem to be going well at first'. It comes from battlefield and sporting images, when some wonderful manoeuvre won the battle or the game for one side, so they were winners on that day.
Thus your presentation might not be going well in planning, and you then think of using the software advertised, and you can 'save the day', make a super presentation, and look wonderful in the eyes of your bosses!
No connection with 'saving image files', at least not in my experience in Britain. The expression is much older than any form of image saving.

The "context" you gave is confusing. "Save the day" often means "come to the rescue". ("The white knight saved the day when he slew the dragon.") It could also mean to collect mementos of an occasion, so you can relive the day later. And it is also used to get people to mark their calendar for an event they will be invited to.

A way to say "come to the rescue", to solve a problem that you are having. the day would be ruined if the problem is not fixed, is the idea. This thing fixes that problem for you. saves the day. now the day won't be ruined because of that problem.

Seems to be somewhat literal, to save the events of the day in images for memories.
