Editors' Review

PowerPoint Slide Show Converter promises to convert PowerPoint presentations to slideshows without the need for any additional programs. While this claim is partially true and PowerPoint Slide Show Converter delivers results, the program doesn't fully live up to its promises.

This program could not be much simpler, which we thought was fantastic. Most likely, you will not need to take a trip to the Help file, since the converter outlines every step on screen and practically holds your hand during the intuitive process. You are given a chance to operate the converter in Simple or Special Mode. Special Mode allows for greater flexibility, by providing opportunities to add custom features to the PowerPoint file such as changing the timing and adding sound. However, we were told we needed Microsoft PowerPoint to operate Special Mode, even though the description says we can run a slideshow without additional programs. Fortunately, Simple mode converted our presentation into a simple slideshow that could also be used as a screen saver and performed its duty quickly, easily, and intuitively.

Special features were light on this simple program. Highlights include an option for creating an autorun file for burning the file onto a CD and a handy preview button that lets you see the program before converting it. The 30-day trial period is plenty of time to navigate the program. While we were pleased with the Simple Mode, we were disappointed with the Special Mode option and would only recommend this download for those with very basic needs for PowerPoint slides.
