Instead of walking your audience through different slides manually, it can be sometimes useful to create a self-running slideshow with textual content. Such slide shows are often found on screens located at the entrance of a company’s branch office, with brand advertisements, mission statements or with pictures of the best employees of a quarter. Furthermore, a self-running slide show also has the added advantage of creating a video presentation style slide show, which can be presented with or without a presenter. PowerPoint Slide Show Converter is a Windows application that converts PowerPoint Presentations into self-running executable slide shows.
Convert PowerPoint To EXE Or Screensaver
With this app you can quickly convert your PowerPoint files to an EXE file, which upon being launched acts as a timed slide show with background music and user-defined transition effects. This can enable you to create an auto-run file and burn it to a CD/DVD, create a timed slide show for presenting it to an audience or even transform your PPT to a screen saver.
The app runs in two modes, namely; the Simple Mode and Special Mode. The difference between the two modes is that the Special Mode has more options like the ability to retain animations, create screen savers and to add a background score to your self-running slide shows.
The simple mode has very basic options for converting a PowerPoint file to a self-running executable slide show. Simply, select the file you wish to convert, followed by an output folder and optionally, any linked files which may be required with the presentation. Once done, click Make Slideshow to generate your self-running file.
The Special Mode consist of a few extra options which include the ability to add a sound track, select a transition effect for your slides, pick a time duration before the next picture is shown, create a screen saver and to optimize photos/text or drawings in your presentation.
Once your slide show is generated, simply run the EXE file or click Preview to see it in action.
