Open both presentations, then drag and drop slides from one to the other.

  • This may not work across versions, specifically going from 2003 to 2007+, and if the slide master is different. But it is a possible solution. –  user3463 Jan 30, 2011 at 7:17

Copy Slides to Another PowerPoint Presentation

  • Brock University

What to Know

  • Right-click the thumbnail of the slide to be copied, select Copy , then right-click a blank area of the Slides pane where you want to place it.
  • Alternate method: Click-and-drag the thumbnail of the slide you want to copy to the Slides pane of the destination presentation.
  • Note: When using the click-and-drag method, the copied slide takes on the design theme of the destination presentation.

This article explains how to copy a slide in PowerPoint from another PowerPoint presentation. Instructions in this article apply to PowerPoint 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010, 2007, 2003, and PowerPoint for Microsoft 365.

Copy and Paste Method in PowerPoint

A quick way to use slides from one presentation in another presentation is to copy the slides that you want to use and paste those slides into the new presentation.

Open both presentations to show them at the same time on the screen. The original presentation contains the slides you plan to copy , and the destination presentation is where they will go. The destination presentation may be an existing presentation or a new presentation.

On the ribbon , go to the View tab.

In the Window group, select Arrange All . In PowerPoint 2003, choose Window > Arrange All from the main menu.

In the Slides pane of the original presentation, right-click the thumbnail of the slide to be copied.

Choose Copy from the shortcut menu.

In the destination presentation, right-click a blank area of the Slides pane where you want to place the copied slide. It can be placed anywhere in the sequence of slides in the presentation.

Choose a Paste option. In PowerPoint 2019, 2016, 2013, and 2010, you have three options:

  • Use Destination Theme (H) : The copied slide will use the same theme as the PowerPoint presentation it is pasted into.
  • Use Source Formatting (K) : The copied slide will keep the original theme and formatting as the original presentation.
  • Picture (U) : The copied slide will be pasted as a graphic into the active slide.

For PowerPoint 2007 and 2003, choose Paste from the shortcut menu.

Click and Drag Method in PowerPoint

If you'd rather use the mouse to copy slides from one presentation to another, follow these steps:

In the Slides pane of the original presentation, select the thumbnail of the desired slide.

Drag the thumbnail to the Slides pane of the destination presentation in the preferred location for the slide.

The pointer changes to indicate the placement of the slide.

Place the slide between two slides or at the end of the presentation.

When you use this method, you don't have the option to choose which theme the newly copied slide will use. The newly copied slide takes on the design theme in PowerPoint (or design template  in PowerPoint 2003) of the second presentation.

If you started a new presentation and haven't applied a design theme or design template, the newly copied slide appears on the white background of the default design template.

Insert Slides from Different PowerPoint File & Keep Format

how to add powerpoint slide to another presentation

The CTRL+C and CTRL+V combination may be useful in some situations where the content is relatively simple to move. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case for copying PowerPoint slides from one file into another.

In order to copy or merge two PowerPoint files together, you need a special way that allows you to keep the formatting (style of the slide).

Luckily, the recent version of Microsoft PowerPoint lets you combine multiple documents into a single PPTX file. Check out the guide below!

How to insert slides from different PowerPoint file

In this guide, you will learn how to import slides from one PowerPoint file into another while keeping its original formatting style. Prior to following the step by step process, make sure you are using the modern version of Microsoft PowerPoint to get the most relevant interface.

1. Launch PowerPoint (file) and go to the  Home  tab.

2. Click on  New Slide > Reuse Slides…

3. There will be a new panel on the right side, click  Browse .

4. Select the PowerPoint file where you want to put its slides into the current file, then click  Open .

5. Before importing the slides, make sure you check the  Keep source formatting . In fact, this is the most important aspect of this guide.

6. Click on the slides available to instantly import them individually.

7. Finally, the slides are imported!

how to add powerpoint slide to another presentation

The templates you saw on the guide above are from the 5 Steps Pipe Process PowerPoint Template and Animated Stairs Process PowerPoint Template . You can download and use these templates for free!

Very easy, right? You can save the PowerPoint file once finished. The slides that imported into a different file are totally separated from the original file. Meaning you can modify the slides without affecting the parent file slides.

You are probably interested to lock the PowerPoint file to prevent unintentional changes. Check out the previous guide How to Make PowerPoint File Read-Only . It’s so useful and far more convenient than locking the file entirely.

With a few clicks, you can easily insert slides from one PowerPoint presentation into another while maintaining the original formatting and branding. Pay attention to paste options, keyboard shortcuts, master slides, and post-insertion tweaks to get inserted slides looking their best. Take time to review, organize, and finalize inserted slides so they integrate seamlessly.

Following these tips will save you time and effort when you need to combine presentations and reuse existing slides. Inserting slides while keeping formatting takes PowerPoint skills from basic to advanced. Add this technique to your presentation toolbox to work smarter and enhance your slide decks.

How do you insert a PowerPoint slide into another PowerPoint?

To insert a PowerPoint slide into another PowerPoint, go to the Home tab, click the arrow below New Slide, and select Reuse Slides. In the Reuse Slides pane, click Open a PowerPoint File, locate and select the presentation file that contains the slide you want, and then click Open. Click on the slide you want to add.

How do you insert slides during a PowerPoint presentation?

To insert slides during a PowerPoint presentation, you would need to pause the presentation, go to the Home tab, click on New Slide, and select the layout you want for your new slide. Then, you can add content to the new slide

How to link from one powerpoint presentation to another.

Don't waste time creating slides for a presentation when they already exist in another. Just link to them!

Linking two presentations together allows you to save time by using already-existing slides. The transition is almost seamless, giving it the illusion of one single presentation. Here's how to link PowerPoint presentations together.

Before we get started, note that both presentations need to be in the same folder to link them together. Moving or renaming the second file after the link has been created will cause the slide to break.

Linking two presentations together isn't magic, but it’s as simple as inserting and clicking a hyperlink. What this trick does is allows you to insert a link within an object or text from presentation A that brings you to a specific slide of presentation B while still in presentation mode.

Once you’ve opened the first presentation and have navigated to the slide in which you will be linking from, select the text or object where you want to place the hyperlink.

If you haven't already inserted an object, you can do so by selecting any of the options in the "Images" or "Illustrations" group of the "Insert" tab, and then selecting the object you'd like to insert.

Once selected, head over to the “Links” group of the “Insert” tab and select “Action."

Now you’ll be at the “Action Settings” menu. Here, select the “Hyperlink To” option. Once selected, you’ll be able to open the drop-down menu underneath it. Do so, and then select “Other PowerPoint Presentation."

Once you select that option, File Explorer (Windows) or Finder (macOS) will open. Here, select the presentation you would like to link to. Click the "OK" button.

Next, you'll be greeted with a list of the slides from the presentation you're linking to. Select the slide that you'd like to go to and click "OK."

You’ll now notice the file path of the second presentation appears under the “Hyperlink To” box. Once you’re ready, select the "OK" button.

Your hyperlink will now be inserted in the selected text or object. To ensure it inserted correctly, you can hover your mouse over the text or object and the file path will appear.

If you want to double-check that you pointed to the correct presentation, you can press the Ctrl key while clicking the link to follow it.

Now, when you play the PowerPoint in presentation mode, simply clicking the hyperlinked text or object to give you a seamless transition from the first presentation to the second.

How to Drag Slides From One PowerPoint to Another: A Step-by-Step Guide

Dragging slides from one PowerPoint to another is a simple process. Open both presentations, select the slide or slides you wish to move, and drag them to the destination PowerPoint’s slide sorter or slide panel. After completing this action, the moved slides will appear in the second presentation, ready for further editing or presenting.

After you complete the action of dragging slides from one PowerPoint to another, the slides you moved will be incorporated into the new PowerPoint presentation. They will appear in the sequence you placed them, and you can then rearrange, edit, or style them as needed to fit the flow of your new presentation.

Introduction

Have you ever been working on a PowerPoint presentation and realized that a slide or two from another presentation would fit perfectly? Maybe you’re consolidating information for a big meeting, or maybe you’re a teacher who wants to reuse a particularly effective slide in a new lesson. Whatever the reason, PowerPoint makes it relatively simple to move slides from one presentation to another, ensuring you can create the most impactful presentation possible without having to recreate content from scratch.

Knowing how to drag slides from one PowerPoint to another can save you time and help maintain consistency across different presentations. It’s also a useful skill for anyone who frequently presents, whether in a business, academic, or personal setting. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without this handy little trick.

Step by Step Tutorial: How to Drag Slides from One PowerPoint to Another

Before diving into the steps, let’s clarify what we’ll achieve. We’ll learn how to efficiently transfer slides from one PowerPoint presentation to another. This technique is handy when you want to merge presentations or move content around without starting from scratch.

Step 1: Open Both PowerPoint Presentations

First things first – open both the PowerPoint presentations: the one with the slides you want to move and the one where you want to move them to.

When you have both presentations open, make sure they’re both in a view that allows you to see the slides. A good view for this is the “Slide Sorter” view, which you can access from the “View” tab in PowerPoint. This way, you can see all slides at once, making it easier to select and move them.

Step 2: Select the Slides You Want to Move

In the presentation with the slides you want to move, click on the slide you wish to transfer. If you’re moving multiple slides, hold down the Ctrl key (Command on Mac) and click each slide.

Make sure you select every slide you want to move before you start dragging. If you accidentally miss one, you’ll have to repeat the process for the missed slide. Also, remember that any changes you make to the original slide will not be reflected in the copy once it’s moved.

Step 3: Drag and Drop the Slides into the New Presentation

Click and hold on the selected slides, then drag them to the other open PowerPoint window. Drop them in the desired location in the second presentation’s slide thumbnail pane or slide sorter view.

As you drag the slides over to the new presentation, you’ll see a faint outline or a cursor indicating where the slides will be dropped. Be precise with where you place them, as this will determine their order in the new presentation. If you make a mistake, don’t worry; you can always rearrange the slides later.

Time-efficiency is a significant benefit of dragging slides between PowerPoint presentations. Instead of spending precious minutes or even hours recreating a slide you know exists elsewhere, you can simply move it over. This leaves you more time to focus on other aspects of your presentation.

Ensuring consistency across presentations is another advantage. By moving slides, you can maintain the same formatting, branding, and messaging, which can be crucial in a professional setting. It’s also less prone to human error than recreating slides from memory.

Flexibility is key when working on presentations, especially if you’re collaborating with others. If someone else created a great slide, you can easily incorporate it into your presentation. This method keeps everyone on the same page and ensures the best content is used.

One potential issue with dragging slides between PowerPoint presentations is formatting discrepancies. Sometimes, slides may not look exactly the same in the new presentation, especially if you’re using different templates or themes. This can mean spending time readjusting the slides to make sure they fit in with the rest.

Version compatibility can also be a problem. If you’re moving slides from a newer version of PowerPoint to an older one, some features may not be supported, which could cause issues with how the slide appears or functions.

Finally, if your slide includes specific fonts, media, or other elements that aren’t available on the computer you’re moving the slides to, these elements might be missing or look different. It’s always a good idea to check for these discrepancies before finalizing your presentation.

Additional Information

When dragging slides from one PowerPoint to another, it’s essential to consider the design and layout of your new presentation. You might need to tweak the slides a bit to make them fit seamlessly into their new home. For example, the color scheme or fonts used in one presentation might clash with the other, so be prepared to do some editing to ensure a cohesive look.

Another tip is to use the “Reuse Slides” feature if you’re dealing with a large number of slides or want more control over the insertion process. This feature, found under the “New Slide” dropdown, allows you to browse and insert slides from other presentations with the option to preserve or discard formatting.

Additionally, remember that any animations, transitions, or embedded media will also be transferred with the slides. So, make sure everything works as intended in the new presentation. It’s always a good idea to do a quick run-through after incorporating the new slides to catch any issues.

Using the prompt keyword, remember that when you drag slides from one PowerPoint to another, you’re essentially copying and pasting content. This can be incredibly helpful for constructing comprehensive presentations without unnecessary duplication of efforts.

  • Open both PowerPoint presentations.
  • Select the slides you want to move.
  • Drag and drop the slides into the new presentation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can i move multiple slides at once.

Yes, you can move multiple slides at once by holding down the Ctrl key (Command on Mac) and clicking each slide you want to transfer, then dragging them together to the new presentation.

Will animations and transitions also be moved with the slides?

Yes, animations and transitions that are applied to the slides will also be transferred when you drag them to the new presentation.

What if the design themes of the two presentations are different?

If the design themes are different, you may need to do some reformatting after moving the slides to ensure they match the new presentation’s style.

Can I undo the action if I make a mistake?

Yes, you can undo the action by pressing Ctrl+Z (Command+Z on Mac) if you accidentally move the slides to the wrong spot or change your mind.

What should I do if a font or media doesn’t transfer correctly?

If a font, media, or any other element doesn’t transfer properly, you may need to manually add it to the new presentation or choose suitable replacements that are available on the second computer.

Mastering the art of dragging slides from one PowerPoint to another can revolutionize the way you create presentations. It’s a skill that’s easy to learn but has a significant impact on your workflow, saving you time and helping to ensure your slides are always up to snuff. Whether you’re a student, a business professional, or just someone who likes to create killer slideshows for family and friends, knowing this trick can make all the difference.

For further reading, consider exploring more advanced PowerPoint features like the “Reuse Slides” function or diving into tutorials on how to make the most of PowerPoint’s vast array of tools. And, of course, never underestimate the importance of practice. The more you work with PowerPoint, the more seamless and intuitive these processes will become.

Remember, dragging slides from one PowerPoint to another is just one of many ways to enhance your presentations. Stay curious, keep learning, and your next slideshow might just be your best one yet.

How to Link to Specific Slides Within the Same PowerPoint Presentation

Let’s say you’re giving a presentation. You reach Slide 4, but need to find a way to go Slide 16.

The norm is to have a presenter go through every slide until he reaches the 16th.

Well, that’s just a waste of time .

There’s a much easier way to do this; a way so easy that it only involves you clicking a button.

Hyperlinks Are Key

This tutorial involves using  internal hyperlinks .

Internal hyperlinks are elements within a PowerPoint presentation that you can use to  link  one slide to another.

To get a better idea of how this works, let’s look at websites.

Every time you click on something that takes you from one webpage to another webpage within the same website, you’re using an internal hyperlink.

We can take the same concept and apply it to our PowerPoint presentations.

How to Link to Another Slide in the Same Presentation

As always, I recommend you watch the video in full. If you need a summary of the steps, then I’ve provided it for you below.

Step 1: Cover Your ‘Clickable’ Areas with Shapes

Look at your slide and pinpoint your clickable areas –  these are the areas that you can click on to activate your hyperlink.

When you know where your areas are, bring in some shapes and cover them up, similar to what you see in the video.

Step 2: Add Internal Hyperlinks to your Shapes

Click on each shape, and press Ctrl + K (or just go to Insert > Link ). A dialog box will pop up.

Insert Hyperlink Dialog Box in PowerPoint

Click on Place in This Document and then choose the slide you want to link the shape to.

When you’re done, just hit OK.

Bonus tip: You could always use the Insert > Action feature to do the exact same thing. It’s up to you, really.

Step 3: Make Your Shapes Transparent

When your hyperlinks are in place, click on the shapes and make sure that they do not contain a color fill nor have an outline.

Remember, Navigation is Key

If you’re going for a linking strategy , then be generous with the hyperlinks. Try and make it easy for the person using the links to navigate around your slides.

For example, if you’re setting up a hyperlink in Slide 4 to go to Slide 16, it’s good practice to set up another hyperlink in Slide 16 to go to Slide 4.

Have fun, and let me know if you run into any issues by leaving a comment below.

For on-the-cuff skipping, if you know the slide #, you can just type it and press Enter. This is great for skipping to the last slide when you’re running over your allotted time. You can print out a list of slides by going to File, Print, clicking the default Full Page Slides, and choosing Outline. Then you’ll have a list of each slide and its number.

Awesome, as usual!

Awesome tip, Ellen! Thanks!

Thanks Nancy!

Thank you so much Yousef. Really helpful.

Very helpful. Than you!

If you import a slide with a number of hyperlinks ….. is there an easy way to remove all hyperlinks ?

what about ipad

can you automatically return to a menu after playing a section of slides

Not to my knowledge.

Iam able to link it but iam unable to view the hyperlink address

Thank you! Very Helpful!

Hi there, very useful video thanks! I am using Mac, and for some reason, links don’t work when exporting or saving as PDF. I tried saving in different ways but without luck. Any idea why by any chance?

Found this pretty useful for a deck /i did for my upper management, thanks for the clear explanation!

How to do it on office / cloud version

This was the most helpful tutorial I have ever watched and it has improved my slides so much!

A simple guide to slideshows

Learn what slideshows are, how they’re used, common features, and how to choose a slideshow maker. Get started creating your own slideshows today with Microsoft PowerPoint.

What is a slideshow?

What are slideshows used for.

how to add powerpoint slide to another presentation

Meetings and presentations

Slideshows are most frequently used to create professional presentations for business meetings, conferences, and educational purposes. A  slideshow program  allows people to organize content, include visuals, and enhance the overall impact of their message.

how to add powerpoint slide to another presentation

Visual storytelling

Because slideshows sequentially display engaging visuals, text, and other multimedia, they’re a strong way to tell a cohesive and compelling narrative from start to finish.

how to add powerpoint slide to another presentation

Content creation

Slideshows give content creators a versatile and efficient way to organize information, increase visual appeal, and communicate effectively across different contexts.

how to add powerpoint slide to another presentation

Photo and video sharing

Slideshow makers are popular for creating photo and video presentations, especially for events like weddings, birthdays, and vacations. People can add transitions, music, and captions to fully bring the photo-sharing experience to life.

how to add powerpoint slide to another presentation

Training and tutorials

Slideshows help break down complex information into digestible chunks with the support of visuals and text, making them ideal for instructional materials, tutorials, and training modules.

how to add powerpoint slide to another presentation

Collaborative projects

In collaborative settings, teams use slideshow makers to create joint presentations or reports. The best slideshow makers enable multiple contributors to add their content simultaneously, which helps ensure a cohesive and unified presentation.

What are the features of a slideshow creator?

Slideshow creators vary in what they offer but ideally include:

A library of templates, themes, and images.

If you’re not a designer, this feature is huge. Simply browse the options available in your slideshow maker library to create a polished, professionally designed presentation in a flash. Be sure to confirm that access to the library is free and the images are approved for unrestricted usage.

Audio and video compatibility.

Keeping your audience engaged is key to any successful slideshow presentation. To mix things up, being able to add a multimedia element—like a song or a video clip—will help people stay focused and interested.

Presentation tools.

Handy presenter tools go a long way toward making your slideshow experience seamless. For example, straightforward slide navigation, slideshow keyboard shortcuts, pen and highlighter markup, and adjustable resolution settings.

AI assistance.

With AI revolutionizing content creation, using a slideshow maker that has AI capabilities will enhance efficiency and innovation. Depending on the slideshow app you have, creating an entire slideshow could be as easy as a quick prompt, like “Make a presentation about the benefits of sustainable fashion that has 15 slides.” 

Animations.

Like audio and video, animations give your audience a bit of sensory surprise that can capture their attention. 

Slide transitions.

Add some pizzazz to how you change slides with visual effects like fading, wiping, and zooming. 

Screen recording.

Being able to record your screen in a slideshow maker is helpful when giving an instructional talk, software demonstration, and other types of presentations that require visual aids.

A place to put speaker notes.

Having somewhere to jot a few notes down will help remind you of everything you want to cover as you present.

Different viewing options.

Looking at different views—for example, a presenter view, an audience view, and a high-level view of slide order—is useful when organizing your slideshow’s structure and understanding and preparing for what you’ll see versus what your audience will see.

How do I choose the right slideshow maker?

When choosing a slideshow maker, keep the following questions in mind to make sure you get the most for your money:

Is it scalable with your business?

As your organization grows and changes, it’s important to have flexible technology that adapts to new needs. Having certain features—such as cloud-based collaboration, compatibility with other work apps, and a mobile app—will help ensure that no matter how your business changes, the slideshow maker is up to the task. This also applies to pricing plans. Consider choosing a slideshow app that has a subscription plan (so the software is always up to date), volume-based pricing, or enterprise-level pricing.

Does it have a variety of visual elements?

It’s pretty much a given that a slideshow maker will allow you to add images, but think outside the JPEG box—what other visual elements are available to you? Features like preset themes, free templates, SmartArt, a built-in clip art library, shape tools, background styles, 3D models, and charts and graphs provide diverse ways to switch up how a slideshow looks without relying solely on adding your own images.

Is it easy to use?

You could have the most feature-rich slideshow maker on the market, but if it isn’t easy to use, you probably won’t use it. Or you will, but you’ll be frustrated, waste valuable time, and have difficulty convincing people you work with to use it. As you research slideshow makers, look for videos that show the apps’ interfaces in action to help you decide if they’re intuitive and will have a shorter learning curve.

Does it have collaboration and sharing options?

Because making a slideshow is often a collaborative effort, it’s worthwhile to find a slideshow creator that was designed with this in mind. Pick one that offers editing controls and commenting, as well as the ability to work on a slideshow at the same time as someone else. Having a cloud-based slideshow maker will be key here. You’ll not only save yourself time but also keep things simple by not having multiple versions of the same slideshow.

5 Better Alternatives To Google Slides

I f you're looking to create a compelling presentation to showcase a new idea or persuade others, Google Slides may be the first option that comes to mind. But with few built-in templates, basic themes, and a limited graphics collection, you'll likely have a hard time making your presentation stand out against others.

If you want to make your presentation truly stand out, there are several alternatives to Google Slides that offer extra perks and features to give your presentations an edge. While Google focuses on integrating Slides with its other work-based apps like Sheets and Docs, other presentation apps focus more on design elements, transitions, and themes to help you convey your brand or personal image throughout your presentation.

We've tested these Google Slide alternatives to give you an idea of other available options to deliver impactful presentations. If you're looking for a way to make boring information more fun and engaging, here are the best presentation apps to replace Google Slides.

Microsoft PowerPoint

There's a reason so many businesses around the globe use Microsoft PowerPoint. Building its reputation as the go-to option for delivering high-quality presentations, the software generated $100 million in annual sales only three years after its initial release in 1990.

Microsoft PowerPoint may be Google Slides' largest competitor, but there are plenty of unique features that can add an extra flourish to your slides. PowerPoint excels in its impressive library of custom animations and slide transitions, which are fairly limited in Google Slides. Another unique feature is its AI-powered Designer tool. This provides professional design schemes that mirror the words used in your slides. For instance, if your title slide is named "Basketball Team 2024," Designer will automatically suggest pictures and slide layouts associated with basketball.

As PowerPoint has been in development longer than Google Slides, it naturally offers more nuanced features if you're looking for something specific. For example, you can save individual slides as an image file (using .png or .jpeg formats) or as a separate presentation file. There's also a large library of free PowerPoint templates designed to speed up your workflow. Moreover, PowerPoint integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Teams with its PowerPoint Live function, allowing you to easily share your presentation with your co-workers.

Prezi offers an innovative approach to showing presentations with its unique canvas feature. Unlike traditional presentation software, Prezi lets you zoom and pan around a flexible canvas. The canvas may feel distant to something of a presentation program, but there is still some linear order provided thanks to the Timeline view.

Finding ways to visualize data is one of the biggest challenges when dealing with presentation software. Prezi resolves this struggle with the help of its Story Blocks: a series of infographics available in multiple designs to visually represent data. You can easily edit infographics and even add animations to individual shapes. This can help add a story to your presentation and help you emphasize key points.

To further enhance your presentation visually, Prezi offers several topic path settings, which let you change how Prezi transitions from one topic to another. These options include subtopics, which are super helpful for breaking large chunks of information down. If you're looking for a unique, modern approach to presenting information, Prezi is a top pick.

If you're looking to create a professional presentation to convince potential clients about your business idea, Slidebean is a popular choice among professionals with plenty of customization options. One of the issues with Google Slides is its fairly limited template library, which is filled mostly with basic designs. Slidebean offers a better alternative with a broad selection of innovative templates split into categories for convenience.

The app's user interface is easy to navigate so that you can create slides in less time. Each slide has a dedicated Design and Outline tab. You can use the Outline tab to quickly edit the information on each slide without being distracted by all the visual elements. Another productivity-enhancing feature is the ability to generate a presentation theme from your website. Simply enter your URL, and Slidebean will automatically apply the theming to your presentation.

Slidebean is another presentation app to take advantage of AI. Using the Auto-Design feature, you can generate recommended slide layouts based on your existing content. It also features AI text suggestions designed to suit different industries. Overall, Slidebean offers a quicker, more efficient method for creating stunning presentations compared to Google Slides.

Canva is a well-known app among graphic designers, but it's also capable of making stunning presentations. The app also has mobile editions, so you can easily create and edit presentations on your Android phone , iOS device, or tablet. As long as you have an internet connection, you can modify your designs wherever you are.

To get started, head to Canva's online presentation maker . Canva offers a vast range of templates categorized by topic, which easily surpasses the simple templates in Google Slides . While some of the templates are only available to Canva Pro members, there is an ample amount of free templates to help you get started. You'll also find a large selection of stock photos, shapes, and illustrations to create beautiful customized slides.

Because Canva is built for graphic designers, you can access several features to give your presentation consistent theming. These include color palettes, font sets, and even a brand kit that allows you to add your company's fonts (available to Pro members only). One time-saving feature is Canva's Uploads tab, which lets you access recently uploaded media files. This offers a convenient way to copy content between different presentations.

Visme is a powerful visual design tool able to create videos, infographics, and presentations. One of the perks of using Visme is the company's free educational content, which offers advice on how to create impactful content to boost your brand. After signing up, the company also asks whether you're using Visme for your business, education purposes, or personal use to offer personalized tips.

In terms of charts and graphs, Visme offers some of the most impressive features we've seen from a presentation app, so you can effortlessly convey important statistics. From the Data tab, you can access dozens of graph styles to visually represent your data. Then, simply double-click a chart inside your presentation to edit the values instantly in a simple table format.

Another area that Visme excels in is collaboration. You can either generate a link to publish your presentation on the web or share your presentation privately with others. For each team member, you can choose who can view, edit, and comment slides for a seamless workflow. There's also a Slack integration that lets you receive messages whenever changes are made to your presentation. Visme is free for all users, with limited features available in its premium plans.
