How to convert a Word doc to PowerPoint.

Need to change your document into a presentation-worthy PowerPoint? Learn how to convert a Word document to a PowerPoint in a few easy steps.

Word documents are great for creating and editing, but they’re not always ideal for sharing. The best way to put your written thoughts into a shareable format is to convert your Word document to a PowerPoint online.

Save your Word document as a PDF.

The first step to converting a Word doc to PowerPoint is to change the Word doc into a PDF. Luckily, it’s easy to convert Word to PDF right from your web browser with an online PDF editor like Adobe Acrobat online services:

  1. Visit the PDF editor website.
  2. Upload the Word document you want to convert.
  3. Select the file type (usually DOC or DOCX).
  4. Let the software do its magic.
  5. Download your newly created PDF.

Unlike Word documents, PDFs maintain their formatting no matter which device you use to view them. While they might be great for sending, there’s still one more step to take if you want to make your Word document presentation-worthy.

Convert the PDF into a PowerPoint.

Now that you saved your Word document as a more manageable file type, you can convert the doc to a PowerPoint by following similar steps:

  1. Go to the PDF editor website.
  2. Upload your PDF file.
  3. Download the new PPT file.

All the information in your Word document will now be in a share-friendly PowerPoint. Simply add a few images and slide transitions, and you’ll be ready for your next big presentation.
