Top 5 PowerPoint Alternatives

Best PowerPoint Alternatives

Due to it’s whopping price, PowerPoint may not be a choice for everyone. Though Microsoft claims PowerPoint as the standard for presentations, there are few better software with much intriguing feature. It is futile to spend hundreds of dollars on a productivity suite (MS Office) if do not use it by professional

Here’s a list of Best PowerPoint Alternatives in my opinion.

Prezi

Probably the best and spectacular alternative of PowerPoint. It’s infamous ‘Zoom’ a feature makes it stand out of the league, Your presentation can be stored and access through the web directly.

That’s not all. Prezi also has some drawbacks: Although the developers have put their best for an easier interface, it is still not too simple to start learning. You need to spend a few days to familiarize with the interface and tools. One notable loophole the developers haven’t considered is the Flash format (in which the presentations are rendered) isn’t compatible in most of the upcoming devices

SlideOnline

SlideOnline is a collaborative tool for creating web presentations. It has an intruiging interface which allows you to directly upload and share the presentations with your friends,. It is gaining popularity each day. It’s downside is it’s limited features and single layout but lack of annoying ads persuades me to use it

The application allows you to import slides directly from PowerPoint. On the other hand, unlike Prezi, SlideRocket doesn’t pose any problem to mobile users since HTML5 version provides access to presentations from mobile browsers.

OpenOffice

The only free program that can compete with Powerpoint is OpenOffice Impress .
Presentations can be easily created utilizing the massive library of clip art and 3D drawings, animations and different display modes.

Alternatively, Impress can also create presentations and flash swf file to be embedded into websites

Google Docs

Google Docs is a web application, it is easy to use, fast to load and allows you to create new presentations, you can also collaborate with other users. You can change the theme and the background of the presentation, add text, images and videos, import individual slides and much more.

Here’s to the Crazy One! – A Tribute to Steve Jobs

Here’s To The Crazy One. The misfit. The rebel. The trouble-maker. The round peg in the square hole. The one who saw things differently. He was not fond of rules, and he had no respect for the status-quo. You can quote him, disagree with him, glorify, or vilify him.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore him. Because he changed things. He pushed the human race forward. And while some may see him as the crazy one, He was genius. Because he was crazy enough to think he can change the world – and he DID!

Its been an year since you were promoted to glory.. and still not a single day pass by when you are not remembered on this planet of ours.

Well you dont know me very well but if u did.. you’d know these things about me:

  • I’m very-3 lazy..
  • I dont read novels or buy any books.. especially expensive ones..
  • I’m a crazy blue person.. means I love blue like crazy..
  • I love Mitsubhishi Lancer more than any other car and would love to own a blue lancer some day..
  • And most importantly I hate Apple products but I’m crazy about you..  And so much that I even violated the “Not to buy expensive books” rule of mine and bought your biography despite having its PDF in my tab.. and not for reading.. but for keeping it as my holy sort-of-a book.

 

A place to bow to every morning

A place to bow to every morning

I dont’ know how and when you dented my universe but you did.. maybe it was when I first saw Pirates of silicon valley.. or maybe when I heard your Stanford speech.. or maybe when I saw your Macbook air presentation.. I don’t remember exactly when.. but you did..

I remember being amazed by Bill Gates(‘ wealth) when I was a kid, and to dream about becoming the richest person in the world.. Sorry But I didn’t knew about you back then.. It was you who made me realize that “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter… Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters… “

The phrase that you popularized “Stay Hungry Stay Foolish” made a deep impact on me.. I have decided to live by it.. I have it hung over both my workplaces.. home and at office.. I even bought the domain name HungryFoOlish.com and plan to maybe start an eCommerce for Entrepreneurs on it.. or maybe something else.. but for entrepreneurs only..

My Laptop DEXTER, Showing off his Steve jobs' wallpaper... ;)

My Laptop DEXTER, Showing off his Steve jobs' wallpaper... 😉

I can go on and on about how much I love your stories like.. When you once fired a whole team of engineers, telling you this can’t be done, saying I’m the CEO and I know it can be done.. Or when you Dumped the original first ipod in the aquarium and pointing out the bubbles and telling engineers see there’s air.. remove it! 😀 or my best one that how u always managed to drove a SL55 AMG without any registration plate.. YOU, sir, were a real Trouble Maker… 🙂

A shooter called 'Steve's Job' named after Steve

A shooter called 'Steve's Job' named after Steve

Now that you’re gone I know one thing on my bucket list will always remain pending (in this lifetime).. that’s “Sharing an Apple with Steve Jobs”. But just a few days ago I visited a bar and in the menu on the fist page there was a shooter named after you called “Steve’s Job” It just gave me some kind of goosebumps and without thinking twice.. I ordered it.. It was rye whisky, apple liquor and apple juice.. and It was simply amazing.. it goes without saying that its now my favorite shooter.. Even though its not the same.. but I think now its the closest I can get to “Sharing an apple with Steve Jobs” this time..

For your Death anniversary I got this tee printed in your memory and decided to wear it the whole day.. Its amazing right.. I know.. 😉

My tribute on Steve Jobs' Death anniversary

My tribute to Steve Jobs on his Death anniversary

For your next birthday, 24th Feb, I plan to celebrate it along with other RodinHooders as a “Dress up like Steve day” although its too early to plan it.. but I guess its about time to incept the plan..

And finally.. Even though My profile picture resembles a fairly popular pose of yours.. Its not that I want to become like you.. or to become the next you or next someone else.. its just that I want to mark a bigger dent than yours on our little universe but with your blessings and teachings.. and that I like that pose of yours very much.. 🙂

Your’s Truly

Snehil Khanor

P.S. I’m sorry for completing this letter so late.. I began it on 5th only.. but couldn’t complete it until today.. Apologies.

Using HTML5 to Design PowerPoint Presentations

In my earlier post, I’ve discussed how you can convert your presentations into a web format or a video and embed it on your blog. Here’s how you can replicate PowerPoint presentations on the web with HTML5 without having to use PowerPoint at all.

All these frameworks utilize CSS3 and HTML5 technologies, make sure your browser is HTML5 compatible.

Impress.JS

Impress.JS is a flexible javascript framework which implements latest CSS transitions and effects to generate an online presentation. It was intended to clone Prezi. Although Prezi is considered as the best alternative for PowerPoint, it still costs you 150$ an year.
It also replicates Prezi’s infamous zoom interface. You can also script and configure several transition effects

HTML5 Rocks

Licensed under Apache 2.0. As it’s name suggests, it is a set of slides is initially designed to introduce the new HTML5. It’s structure can simply afford to build your own layout with all the bonus examples of HTML5 features already implemented in the framework.

Reveal.JS

Reveal.js utilizes CSS 3D Transforms to replicate PowerPoint transitions., Reveal.js is an HTML template to make presentations in the form of two-dimensional matrix. Several modes of transitions can be configured such horizontal sliding and vertical modes. Reveal.JS also has a unique Reveal transition which utilizes CSS Opacity and transform properties to create a fade out -> Reveal effect.

Robo Deck

The main advantage of this framework is that if the presentation is available online then it is possible to synchronize the visitors on the current slide via Web Socket Requests.. Note that it is still in beta stage and does require lot of annoying bug bashing before any large scale web application development with it

How to Convert a PowerPoint Presentation into Video

PowerPoint is the most widely used tool for designing presentations, but one huge thumbs down of PowerPoint is it’s compatibility issue. Your presentation can only be presented on a PC with PowerPoint installed. You may not find many PowerPoint users dime a dozen because of its hefty price tag. However, if you convert PowerPoint to movie, things may be different, because converting PPT to movie means no constraints on the compatibility.

You can also share your presentation on social networking sites for maximum publicity and exposure.

1. Convert PowerPoint to Video in Windows Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker comes by default with Windows O.S. It is completely free and doesn’t require you to spend a penny

Step 1: Open Microsoft PowerPoint. Go to File -> Save As. On the “Save as type” option, choose any image format you wish. There are 6 image formats you can choose from: … * Gif, * jpg, * png, * tif, * bmp. However, JPG and PNG formats are the most recommended because of their small size and quality retention.

Step 2: Click “Save” and a dialog box will appear, Choose “Every Slide” option. A few seconds later, a window should appear “Each slide in your presentation has been saved as a separate file in the folder: ***”. Open the folder, you can find all the exported images here.

Step 3: Run Windows Movie Maker, import all the photos you have exported and add them to Storyboard.

Step 4: Add music files, video effects, animations and transitions you like in the Storyboard

Step 5: Export the storyline into a video format. Preferably the local playback for maximum quality. .

One major drawback of this process is, the original transitions from the presentation file will be lost and you will need to configure transitions through Movie maker, this might take a couple of minutes

PowerPoint Sharing Websites

SlideOnline is an intuitive platform for sharing PowerPoint Presentation online. This site allows you to share your PowerPoint presentation through blogs, websites, YouTube and even iPod. I

After uploading your presentation on the site, the presentation will be converted into a Flash Video/File. An email will be sent to you as soon as your PowerPoint video has been processed. However, this process may take some time depending on the size of the PPT file. Alternatively, you can choose SlideShare or Authorstream.

If you are using PowerPoint 2013

PowerPoint 2013 has an intuitive feature. It lets you export the presentation into a video format directly without any external plug-in hassle.

Click File – Export Tab. Choose ‘Create a video’ and select your desired format (.WMV or .MP4) from the dropdown and click OK..

For a much quicker conversion, you can use a video converter or screen cast.
