How to download a PowerPoint as a PDF for free

The benefit of downloading a PowerPoint as a PDF is that all of your content, from fonts to colors and picture placement and orientation will look exactly as you intended, regardless of who opens the file and which machine they’re using. As PDFs are universally compatible, whoever you’re sending your file to won’t need pricey software to open it and there’s no risk of content being presented differently because they don’t use the same software to open the presentation than you did to create it. When you download a PowerPoint as a PDF, all of the links to external sites are also 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 whole bunch of other formats using Smallpdf, including Word, JPG, and Excel. You’ll find all our tools listed on our homepage. Among our many great tools, you’ll find options to annotate, compress, split, or even add an electronic signature to your PDF document. As versatile as PowerPoint presentations can be, PDF files are not dead-ends when it comes to editing. Plus, you save a lot of space on your device when you convert a PowerPoint to PDF, as the format is much more lightweight.

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—without an internet connection.

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!

But you can’t only export from Smallpdf to those online file storage services; you can also send PDFs to Smallpdf right from Dropbox and Google Drive with the Smallpdf Chrome Extension! No more uploading and downloading files just to convert, compress, or edit them. 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
