How to Edit PDF Slides in PowerPoint and Google Presentations

Creating and editing computer presentations is for some people a fun activity, for others, a tedious obligation, and there are those who find it a combination of these two. If you are a student assigned to improve your presentation, or sales manager on the verge of losing a client unless you turn your sales pitch into a visually attractive and convincing offer, you’ll be the most successful if you belong to the third group of presenters.

 

What can be fun about professional presentations?

Tech tools and app developers are doing their best to make their presentation software as user-friendly as possible. They are concerned about the fun factor, too, not just about creating a product that is simple to use. Some of very useful and fun PowerPoint features you can play with all day (if you get carried away) are SmartArt graphics, animation and inserting media clips, to name just a few.

Today we have an amazing selection of software tools to choose from for creating and editing compelling and convincing presentations. The best-known tool for making winning presentations is probably Microsoft PowerPoint. However, when it comes to sharing PowerPoint presentations with others via email or Internet, most presenters choose first to convert PowerPoint to PDF. PDF format serves as a guarantee that slideshow recipients or users will see it exactly as they are intended: what you save and send or share online on SlideShare and alternative presentation sharing websites, is exactly what they will see.
