How to download a PowerPoint as a PDF for free

As we save the presentation as a PDF file, you won’t lose the original content, orientation, colors, and other document properties. To streamline the download process, you don’t even have to choose a location to save the file—it will go straight to your default download folder. Links to external sites will also be saved within the slides.

Of course, there are other options to do this, such as opening the “Save As” dialog box within Microsoft PowerPoint and converting the PowerPoint to PDF from there. However, not everyone has access to a Microsoft Office license.

Other free Options


Once you’ve downloaded a PowerPoint as a PDF, you can also convert your presentations to a few other formats using Smallpdf, including Word, JPG, and Excel. You’ll find all our tools listed on our homepage. If you hadn’t noticed, once you create a PDF there are also options to annotate, compress, split, or even add an electronic signature to your document. As versatile as PowerPoint presentations can be, PDF files are not dead-ends when it comes to editing.

Also, if you want to convert PPT to PDF offline outside of the Smallpdf website, you can. The Smallpdf Desktop App was created for you to easily view and access our tools, all in one small package—offline.

Save Files To Other Platforms


To make PDF even easier, we have integrations with some of the most popular software out there. Once you’ve converted your file to PDF, you can directly import it to Dropbox or Google Drive using our integrations. There is an icon on each toolbox for Dropbox and Google Drive, and the Smallpdf Chrome Extension from the Chrome web store lets you work on documents right in the browser!

And lastly, deeper integrations have also been created where PDF files could be exported to our site, from theirs. To enable this, go to Dropbox, right-click on any PDF file, and you should see our logo listed—all to help make PDF easy for you.


Enjoy using our platform to download those PPTs as PDFs
