Fun fact: 30 million PowerPoint presentations are made every single day.

Considering it belongs to the world’s most popular presentation software, it’s no surprise that the PowerPoint file format, PPTX, can be accessed from almost any device.

In Visme, you can easily export your presentations in PPTX format. This lets you present offline on any computer or mobile device.

Note: PPTX is supported by PowerPoint 2007 and all later versions. It’s an open-source format, which means it can also be opened by other applications like Google Slides and Apple Keynote.

Keep reading for a step-by-step guide on how to export a PowerPoint presentation in Visme. We'll also show you how to create a beautiful presentation in Visme using templates and a drag-and-drop editor.

Why Use Visme to Create PowerPoint Presentations

Using PowerPoint to create a PPTX presentation might sound like the obvious option, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best one.

Despite being 20+ years old, PowerPoint hasn’t changed much in terms of design options and capabilities. It’s no surprise then that most PowerPoints end up looking similar to each other.

With a tool like Visme, though, you can create PowerPoint presentations that not only look great, but are easier and faster to put together as well.

For example, check out this beautiful pitch deck template made in Visme.

Instead of navigating through the limited menu in PowerPoint, you can use an intuitive drag-and-drop editor with millions of professional built-in images, icons and illustrations, fonts, powerful charts and graphs, and more.

This helps you create compelling PowerPoint presentations in a fraction of the time it would take if you were using the actual PowerPoint software.

Some cool features of Visme’s presentation maker include:

  • Hundreds of customizable templates and themes
  • Auto-animated presentations
  • Millions of free images
  • Thousands of free vector icons
  • Animated characters, illustrations and gestures
  • Audio and video libraries
  • 50+ charts, graphs and data widgets
  • Dynamic maps for the world, countries, cities and states

Imagine the stuff you can create in Visme—the possibilities are endless!

And once you’re done creating a beautiful presentation, you can export it in PowerPoint format to view it on virtually any device or operating system.

Finally, you can also start from scratch using a Blank Canvas, or import an existing PowerPoint presentation to customize in Visme.


Step 2: Customize Your Presentation

Once you’ve chosen a presentation template, the next step is to customize its design and content according to your needs.

Here’s a quick video tutorial on how to create a presentation in Visme.

Replace the placeholder content, change the color scheme with a single click, drag and drop elements, and quickly add, remove or rearrange slides.

Instead of uploading images from your computer as you would do in PowerPoint, you can access millions of free stock photos from right inside the Visme editor.

You can also tap into libraries of vector icons, animations, videos and more—they’re all searchable!

For example, spice up your slides by adding animated characters.

Looking for a Better Way to Share Your Presentation?

Although you can export your Visme presentation to an editable Powerpoint format, it’s not the only way to share your presentation with others.

Most users find it easier to publish their presentation online instead of downloading it to their computer.

This allows you to connect your charts to live data and update your presentation any time without having to download the file again and again.
