Converting a PDF to PowerPoint is a great way to make a presentation out of the content of a PDF. Once in PowerPoint, you will be able to add slide transitions, additional text, music and more. A PDF can be easily converted to PowerPoint using a PDF reader and a few basic commands.
Open your PDF file with a PDF reader. If you do not have a PDF reader, Adobe Reader can be downloaded for free from the Adobe website.
Click “Tools” and select the “Snapshot Tool.” Click and drag the snapshot tool to select the content on the first page of your PDF. Once selected, release your mouse and the content will be copied.
Open Microsoft PowerPoint and create a new Blank Presentation.
Insert a blank slide into your PowerPoint by clicking “Insert” and selecting “New Slide.” Then click “Edit” and choose “Paste.” The content of the PDF page you copied will be pasted onto the new slide you inserted into your PowerPoint presentation. Resize the PDF to fit within the PowerPoint slide by clicking and dragging its corners.
Save your PowerPoint presentation when finished adding content to it. You have now successfully converted a PDF to PowerPoint.
