How to Make a PDF Slideshow

We recently needed to turn a PDF on small business management into a fully detailed presentation. 


To do so, we consulted PDF Reader Pro's slideshow functionalities, which we'll walk you through in this article. 

 

We wanted to ensure both our Mac and Windows users could turn their PDFs into slideshows, starting with our Windows guide.

Step 4: Use the brush and laser pointer tools

PDF Reader Pro allows for a page-by-page presentation of your PDF, and you can also employ tools such as the laser pointer and brush to emphasize key content.

This ensures your audience remains engaged and comprehends your presentation effectively.

During your presentation, the laser pointer tool is instrumental in emphasizing points, especially on text-heavy pages. For marking up text or making brief annotations, the brush tool is incredibly handy.

How to Make a PDF Slideshow: Best Practices

Let's quickly explain how we made the most out of our PDF presentation.


1. Make sure you start on the right page

Use the navigation tool to find the page you wish to start your slideshow on. 



2. Use the "Tools" feature and sub-tools to edit and annotate your PDF as needed

Highlight and underline important text and erase irrelevant sections.



3. Add images and text

Use the "Text" tool to write directly onto your PDF, and the "Image" tool to add JPGs and PNG files. 



Keep experimenting and make your PDF as engaging and informative as you like!
