Java API to Convert PS to PPS
Get Started with Java File Format APIs
Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .
// load PS file with an instance of Document class Document document = new Document("template.ps"); // save PS as PPTX format document.save("PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx); // instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPTX file Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // save the presentation as Pps format presentation.save("output.pps", SaveFormat.Pps);
Open Encrypted PS File via Java
While loading PS file format, your document might be password protected. Aspose.PDF for Java allows you open encrypted documents as well. In order to open the encrypted file, you can initialize new instance of the Document class and pass filename and password as arguments.
// open PS document Document doc = new Document("input.ps", "Your@Password"); // save PS as PPTX format document.save("PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx);
Save PPS File with Predefined View Type via Java
After converting PS to PPS, you can also add predefined view type for your presentation. Aspose.Slides for Java provides a facility to set the view type for the generated presentation when it is opened in PowerPoint through the ViewProperties class. The setLastView property is used to set the view type by using the ViewType enumerator.
// instantiate a Presentation object that represents a PPTX file Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // set view type presentation.getViewProperties().setLastView((byte) ViewType.SlideMasterView); // save the presentation as Pps format presentation.save("output.pps", SaveFormat.Pps);

What is PS File Format?
The PS (PostScript) file format is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. It is commonly used for printing and is supported by a wide range of printers and imaging devices. PS files contain instructions that describe how elements such as text, images, and graphics should be rendered on a printed page.
PS files are created by applications that generate PostScript output, such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, or other graphics software. They are primarily used in professional printing workflows, where high-quality and consistent output is required.
The PS file format is based on a stack-based programming language, where commands and operands are placed on a stack and executed in a sequential manner. This allows for precise control over page layout, typography, color, and other printing parameters.
PS files are typically text-based and can be opened and edited with a text editor. They consist of a series of ASCII characters that represent the PostScript code. The code describes the arrangement and appearance of objects on a page, including text positioning, image placement, and graphical transformations.
While PS files are primarily used for printing, they can also be converted to other formats for digital distribution or further processing. For example, PS files can be converted to PDF (Portable Document Format) files, which are widely supported and can be easily viewed and printed on various devices.
What is PPS File Format?
The PPS file format is an extension used by Microsoft PowerPoint to save presentations specifically designed for slideshow purposes. It stands for “PowerPoint Slide Show” and is closely related to the PPT (PowerPoint Presentation) format. PPS files contain a collection of slides, each with its own content, layout, and formatting.
Unlike PPT files, which open in the PowerPoint editor, PPS files are intended to be opened directly in slideshow mode. When a PPS file is opened, it launches the presentation in full-screen mode, immediately displaying the slides in the order they were created. This allows for a seamless and uninterrupted presentation experience without the need for manual navigation.
PPS files are commonly used for sharing presentations with others who only need to view the slides rather than edit them. By saving a presentation as a PPS file, you ensure that recipients can open and view the presentation as intended without accidentally modifying the content. This makes it a convenient format for distributing slideshows for meetings, conferences, or self-running presentations.
The PPS format retains all the visual elements, animations, transitions, and multimedia content included in the original PowerPoint presentation. It provides a convenient way to deliver polished and professional-looking slideshows that maintain their intended design and effects.
To open and view PPS files, recipients typically need a compatible software application such as Microsoft PowerPoint, PowerPoint Viewer, or other presentation software capable of reading PPS files. These applications allow users to enjoy the full presentation experience without the need for authoring or editing capabilities.
