08.29.21  •  #PowerPoint #Tips #Templates


In this blog post, we not only have a table with various sizes for social networks, but also instructions on how to export your PowerPoint slides as images or videos. After that, we have a variety of templates for you to download.

You can create social media graphics in PowerPoint without much work and use them in your company, for example. This way, all posts on the social networks of a company are consistent. What's more, every employee has access to PowerPoint and no extra programme is needed. To make the whole thing even more uniform, we recommend that you create a theme design.

Format slide size

In order for the slides to have the correct size, you must change them beforehand. To do this, you have to go to the "Customize" group in the "Design" tab and click on "Slide size".

So that you can save your slide as an image, you must go to "File type" and select JPG or PNG instead of PowerPoint presentation. Now you only have to click on "Save" and you have already saved your PowerPoint slide as an image.
