A pop-up will show and you can choose how you want to import the file.

You can import as images, which flattens each slide of your project into images.  Each image will be its own slide. With this way, you will not be able to edit the image, but you can always place objects on top. This method also ensures the closest match of the slides to your original powerpoint.

The other option is to import as editable. This will render the project in Visme and allow you to change text, move around objects, etc. Keep in mind, it may not import the presentation exactly how it appears depending on various factors such as how you designed it, type of assets used and other technical factors, but you will have the ability to modify ever element post import and even apply special effects such as links or interactivity to any object.

Choose your desired option and click Next.
