Editors' Review

by   / November 11, 2009

AuthorPoint Lite converts PowerPoint presentation files to SWF (Flash) files that are then uploaded to AuthorPoint Lite's Web site. Once your presentation is on the Web site, you can link to the provided URL, or you can share it via Twitter and other forms of social media. You can also embed your presentation into a separate Web page.

AuthorPoint Lite is clean and attractively designed. It immediately prompts you to upload a PowerPoint file. The presentation we chose contained many photographs, but AuthorPoint Lite handled it with ease. Once our file was finished, the next step was to upload it to the AuthorPoint Lite Web site. You must create an account in order to use the Web site, but it's free. It took about 20 minutes for our presentation to post to the site, because of the time needed to downsample our images for Web resolution. Presentations that are mostly text and vector graphics will load more quickly. It was worth the wait! When our presentation was ready, the AuthorPoint Lite Web site provided us with a link to view it on the Web site. You can share the link freely or make your presentations private and password protected, a nice benefit if you're handling confidential material.

AuthorPoint Lite is a fabulous tool for sharing PowerPoint presentations over the Internet. It's easy to use, and help is available on the manufacturer's Web site if you encounter problems. AuthorPoint Lite is free and installs and uninstalls easily. This is a top-notch application.
