Convert Your Prezi into a Powerpoint PPT for Slideshare

For those of your familiar with Prezi, you might be scratching your heads when it comes to publishing your hard work online, notably the popular social network Slideshare.

If you work in Marketing and don’t know about Prezi, check it out right now. Prezi is the answer to that feeling you get when somebody opens their laptop and plugs in the projector (ie. nap time).

Even for the uninitiated, Prezi is an excellent tool for producing an attractive presentation quickly and easily. Prezi has some useful features, but it seems as though Linkedin are adamant to draw the line between traditional presentations and Prezi’s.

3. Convert your PDF to JPG’s

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.

4. Create a presentation with JPG’s

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.

5. Upload your PPT to Slideshare

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.

That’s it! If you’re not convinced, check out our original Prezi and the post-conversion PPT presentation uploaded to Slideshare.
