Prezi has a few handy exporting tools, including the ability to Download as PDF. Click Share > Download as PDF and Prezi will begin converting your presentation into a PDF.
There are a number of options available to convert your PDF into an image format, but there’s a handy tool that does this job very well called Any Free PDF to JPG converter. Alternatively, use Adobe Reader or Mac bundled software Preview.
Create a presentation with
your favourite presentation software Microsoft PowerPoint, PowerPoint for Mac or Apple’s own Keynote software. Create a blank presentation template and insert your shiny new JPG’s.
Now that you have a fresh presentation ready to go, you can save and upload to Slideshare as per usual. Be sure to add any notes or links to your Slideshare upload, as this will help your work become more discoverable.
