Let’s take a look at some Microsoft PowerPoint Online tips and tricks to help you create better presentations.
PowerPoint Online tips and tricks
1] Convert presentation to PDF
Even if people use PowerPoint to make their presentation visually impressive, sometimes you won’t be able to reproduce your presentations. However, you can show the same presentation without animation to everyone by converting it to PDF or portable document. After completing your presentation, go to File > Print> Print to PDF. It will take a few minutes to convert your presentation, and then you will be able to download it.
2] Let others design your presentation
If you are having trouble creating PPT or want to work with someone to create a custom PowerPoint presentation, you can invite that person or share a link to let him / her edit your presentation. Like other Microsoft Office Online tools, you don’t need a Microsoft account to edit. The person at the other end can also download or insert the presentation. Use the Share button visible in the upper right corner. You will be able to create a link to view or edit the presentation.
3] Insert non-copyright images from Bing
Sometimes you may need to insert images into your presentation to make it look more attractive or to explain the meaning. You have two options. First, you can search for copyright-free images and download them. Second, you can use image search directly from Microsoft Office Online.

To do this, go to the Insert tab> select Online Images> find the image and select one of the search results> click the Insert button.
