For over 20 years, PowerPoint has been the go-to software for creating presentations. It has become such a household name that many people don't even refer to their presentation as a presentation. Instead, they simply call it a PowerPoint. 

However, despite being used by millions of individuals and organizations around the world, the capabilities and user experience PowerPoint offers has hardly changed over the years.

Chances are, you are a PowerPoint user and mostly use it because that's what you’re used to, or what you have available.

But be honest — do you think PowerPoint is actually the best presentation tool out there? I’d be willing to bet that you’d prefer to never open your PowerPoint app again.

Luckily for you, there are PowerPoint alternatives out there. And you’ve found one of them right here with Visme. Check out our PowerPoint versus Visme comparison to learn more about what makes Visme your best choice.

And the best part? You can even import your existing PowerPoint presentations into Visme and edit or present them right inside our presentation software.

We’re going to walk you through exactly how to import your PowerPoint presentation online and spice up your slide design with Visme.

Step 4: Edit Your PowerPoint

Once your PowerPoint presentation has been imported, it’ll appear in your Visme dashboard alongside your other project.

From here, you can edit your slides using Visme’s design elements like icons, stock photos, charts, graphs, maps and more.

You can even save new Visme slides to your slide library to bring into your existing PowerPoints, like these slides from our Simple presentation theme.
