Have you ever had a PPT file that was too large, and you didn’t want to email it? Well, this article is here to tell you there is an easier way!
Web based applications
Online conversion sites are a great way to convert your PPT files for free. They’re easy to use and can convert into many different file formats.
Converting your PPTs using an online conversion site is incredibly easy; you only need to upload the document and wait while it converts. Most of these platforms allow you to choose between file types, so you can be sure that the output will be perfect for whatever device or software program you intend to use.
Also, once you have converted PPT to PDF, you can easily convert PDF back to PPT. In addition, Adobe Acrobat says you can use their “high-quality PDF to PPT converter in any web browser, such as Google Chrome, to share your best work with confidence.”
- Download and install the software.
- Open the file you want to convert in your PDF converter program, then click “Save As” or similar to open a save dialogue box from which you can save it as a PDF file on your computer.
- In this window, choose where to save the file (via its “Save As” dialog box). After choosing where you would like to save it, click “OK.” This will launch a pop-up window asking what format should be used for saving this file – select “PDF” from the dropdown menu at the top left of the screen that allows users to choose between different formats such as JPEGs or MP3s.
PDF writer printers
PDF writer printers are software that converts PPT files to PDF. They’re also available for Windows and Mac. Unfortunately, these programs don’t cost very much, but they’re not particularly good at what they do.
If you want to print your PowerPoint presentation as a PDF, using a third-party program like this one isn’t the way to do it: the results will be inferior when compared to those of the recommended tools. And if you need to convert a PDF document into PowerPoint format? Forget about it!
If your goal is converting PPTs into other file formats—say, Word docs or PowerPoints—then these programs might be worth considering since there are no specialized add-ins needed on either end. But if you intend to print out slideshows as hard copies for meetings or presentations, then save yourself some time and just use the recommendation below instead!
Online conversion sites
Online conversion sites are easy to use. All you need to do is upload your PowerPoint file, choose the format that you want it converted into, and then download it. With some online conversion sites, you can even convert more than one of your files at a time.
These services are free because they make money through advertising or by selling products (like an online collaboration tool) instead of charging people directly for the service itself. They have many features like password-protected PDFs, logos on each document page and more. Most importantly, though: they’re fast!
With the introduction of so many options for converting your PowerPoint presentations to PDF, it can be hard to know which one is best for you. It all comes down to what kind of user you are, how much time you want to spend on this project and what format(s) you need.
