Create New PowerPoint Presentation

In the example given below, we have added a line to the first slide of the presentation.

import aspose.slides as slides

# Instantiate a Presentation object that represents a presentation file
with slides.Presentation() as presentation:
    slide = presentation.slides[0]
    slide.shapes.add_auto_shape(slides.ShapeType.LINE, 50, 150, 300, 0)"NewPresentation_out.pptx", slides.export.SaveFormat.PPTX)

How To Merge Presentations

This Python code shows you how to merge presentations:

import aspose.slides as slides

with slides.Presentation("Presentation1.pptx") as pres1:
    with slides.Presentation("Presentation2.pptx") as pres2:
        for slide in pres2.slides:
            pres1.slides.add_clone(slide)"combined.pptx", slides.export.SaveFormat.PPTX)

How To Import Presentation From PDF

This Python code demonstrates the PDF to PowerPoint conversion process:

import aspose.slides as slides

with slides.Presentation() as pres:
    pres.slides.add_from_pdf("welcome-to-powerpoint.pdf")"OutputPresentation.pptx", slides.export.SaveFormat.PPTX)

How To Convert PowerPoint to PDF with Default Options

The following example shows you how to convert a PowerPoint PPT, PPTX, and OpenOffice ODP document into a PDF document using the default options. The default options create a PDF document at the maximum quality levels

import aspose.slides as slides

# Instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPT file
presentation = slides.Presentation("PowerPoint.ppt")

# Save the presentation as PDF"PPT-to-PDF.pdf", slides.export.SaveFormat.PDF)

Convert PowerPoint PPT/PPTX to JPG

The following example shows you how to convert a PowerPoint PPT, PPTX, and OpenOffice ODP document into a set of JPEG images.

import aspose.slides as slides
import aspose.pydrawing as drawing

pres = slides.Presentation("pres.pptx")

for sld in pres.slides:
    bmp = sld.get_thumbnail(1, 1)"Slide_{num}.jpg".format(num=str(sld.slide_number)), drawing.imaging.ImageFormat.jpeg)
