Creating and Managing Slides

In order to have a successful presentation, you would need to create a simple, clear and amazing presentation that are unforgettable for your audience. Having excessive texts, small fonts size and hard to read fonts are what makes your presentation less effective! It’s all about minimal texts with lots of graphics and visuals.

There are two ways you can create a presentation using Visme. You can choose slides from our 800+ customizable slides templates (20+ categories) in the Slide Library or use the Legacy Templates.

You can now add, duplicate, remove, hide, copy, paste and modify the order of your slides with ease using Visme slide manager located at the right panel in the Visme Editor. You can also rename the title of each slide to help you organize your presentation better.

Although slides are often used in presentations, they are also very useful for other things like creating short animations, creating slideshows or galleries.
