Editors' review

Ashampoo Presentations 2008 provides all the necessary tools to create a PowerPoint-like slideshow. Its simple controls mimic the more popular program all the way down to its surprising feature.

Since we had previously created slideshows with Microsoft's PowerPoint, Ashampoo's interface felt instantly familiar. Most of the controls are in similar locations, and they perform every action that PowerPoint does. We quickly created a series of slides that incorporated text, images, sounds, and shapes, and we combined them in a customized slideshow in a matter of minutes. Ashampoo delivered a professional-looking multimedia presentation. Just like in PowerPoint, we were able to create transitions and apply a series of colorful and professional design templates, or create our own. We were impressed with the program's ability to impersonate PowerPoint. The program didn't improve or add any new functionality over the other slideshow program, but we didn't mind since it was such a smooth clone. The program's best feature even let us save our show as a PowerPoint file so it could be played on another computer with that program. While Ashampoo won't surpass its popular PowerPoint competition, it did a great job of imitating it. It makes a great option for users who don't have PowerPoint.

Ashampoo Presentation 2008 comes with a 30-day trial. Its ability to mimic PowerPoint and even save your work as a PowerPoint file makes this a great program that we highly recommend.

    "The interface is well laid out and user friendly."

    January 08, 2010   |   By 65paul

    Version: Ashampoo Presentations 2008 1.0

    Pros

    You can select all of the slides in the Slide Sorter Panel and change the font to another throughout the whole presentation, then save it as a .PDF file. I changed the font of a file saved in MS PowerPoint and saved it as a Presentations 2008 file.

    Cons

    Nothing in life is perfect, but if Ashampoo Presentations 2008 could open my old Technical College files saved in PowerPoint 4.3/?94, it would be close to it.

    Summary

    Ashampoo Presentations 2008 is a very user friendly application. The layout of the interface is excellent and the icons on the toolbars and menus are clear, helpful and colorful. There are many customizable features like having the dictionary and dialogs in another language and setting the rulers, grid and page guides to your liking.

    You can select all of the slides in the Slide Sorter Panel and change one font to another throughout the whole presentation, then save it as a .PDF file. I changed the font of a file that had been saved in MS PowerPoint, and saved it as if I had made it from scratch in Ashampoo Presentations 2008.

    Nothing in life is perfect, but if Ashampoo Presentations 2008 could open my old Technical College files saved in PowerPoint 4.3/?94, it would be close to it.
