I’ve just had a wee play with 280 Slides. I’m impressed. It let me search online for images & videos that could be embedded, and then let me upload it to slideshare. In terms of Presentations, it’s not got too many choices, just a few backgrounds & a few layouts – but given that most Powerpoint options never get used, it’s got more than enough choice.
The layout got a bit messed up on export to Slideshare & the video no longer plays, but it did let me download it to Powerpoint (the video’s been converted to an image at some point).
Downloading direct to Powerpoint from 280 Slides still had the video as an image, but the layout was as I’d left it. It downloads (or can be emailed) as pptx, rather than ppt, which could be difficult if the recipient hasn’t got Office 2007.
It is still in beta, but I think that it’s got potential.
Here’s the original, if you’re interested.

  1. Need to put personal pics on Flickr in a link for a few friends to view. Need help as it shows up on my laptop that has Vista and my computer has windows xp. None of my friends have been able to open the link.
