Convert PowerPoint to PDF

Converting PowerPoint to PDF helps you maintain the layout and formatting of your presentation when viewed on different systems or devices.

Create Slide Masters

A slide master controls the design of all the slides based on it. Using a slide master makes it easier to create presentations that look consistent and visually appealing.

Add a Watermark

Watermarks are used to declare confidentiality, copyright, source, or other attributes of the document, or as a decoration to make the document more attractive. Both text watermarks and image watermarks can be added to presentations.

Extract Text and Images

If you only need the text and images of a PowerPoint document regardless of their formatting and layout, you can directly extract them from the document.

Digitally Sign PowerPoint Documents

A digital signature provides assurances about the validity and authenticity of your presentation. Once a PowerPoint document is digitally signed, any changes to the document will invalidate the signature.

Insert Charts

Charts in PowerPoint can help illustrate data, show trends or changes in data over time, and make the whole document more professional and attractive.

Insert a SmartArt

SmartArt is a way to combine text, shapes and colors into an image or illustration. SmartArt graphics let you easily create a visual representation of your information.

Insert Images and Shapes

Adding pictures and shapes can make your presentations more interesting and engaging. And you can customize your images by cropping, reordering, changing colors or adding other formatting and customize shape according to your own color palette, preferences.

Add Speaker Notes

Adding speaker notes to a PowerPoint presentation provides reference material for the speaker when they’re presenting a slideshow, allowing them to stay on track without forgetting the key points to deliver a flawless presentation.
