When making academic presentations one might have to heavily cite PDF documents. This can be both laborious and difficult, as copying diagrams, text and images can take a long time. This is because many a times it can be hard to get the formatting right for copied content in PowerPoint. Furthermore, you might want to edit those documents as PowerPoint slides to add your own notes and labels for better explanation. SmallPDF is a web service which enables seamless conversion from PDF to PowerPoint, making converted documents editable as slides.
