Aspose.Total for Java is a comprehensive suite of components that enables developers to easily convert PostScript (PS) to PowerPoint Slide Show (PPSM) within any Java J2SE, J2EE, or J2ME application. This suite of components is designed to provide developers with a comprehensive set of tools to help them create powerful and efficient applications.
The process of converting PS to PPSM involves two steps. Firstly, using Aspose.PDF for Java, developers can export PS to PowerPoint Presentation (PPTX). This component provides a wide range of features that enable developers to create, manipulate, and convert PDF documents. It also provides a powerful set of APIs that allow developers to easily manipulate PDF documents.
Once the PS document has been converted to PPTX, developers can then use Aspose.Slides for Java to convert the PPTX to PPSM. Aspose.Slides for Java is a powerful PowerPoint Processing API that enables developers to create, manipulate, and convert PowerPoint presentations. It provides a wide range of features that enable developers to easily create, manipulate, and convert PowerPoint presentations.
Using Aspose.Total for Java, developers can easily convert PS to PPSM within any Java J2SE, J2EE, or J2ME application. This suite of components provides developers with a comprehensive set of tools to help them create powerful and efficient applications. With Aspose.PDF for Java, developers can export PS to PPTX, and with Aspose.Slides for Java, developers can convert PPTX to PPSM. This makes it easy for developers to quickly and easily convert PS to PPSM.
Java API to Convert PS to PPSM
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 Ppsm format presentation.save("output.ppsm", SaveFormat.Ppsm);
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 PPSM File with Predefined View Type via Java
After converting PS to PPSM, 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 Ppsm format presentation.save("output.ppsm", SaveFormat.Ppsm);

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 PPSM File Format?
The PPSM file format is an extension used by Microsoft PowerPoint to save presentations with embedded macros. It is an evolution of the PPSX file format, which is commonly used for PowerPoint slideshow presentations. The “M” in PPSM stands for “macro-enabled”, indicating that the file supports the execution of macros within the presentation.
PPSM files allow for interactive and dynamic content in PowerPoint presentations through the use of macros, which are sets of instructions or commands that automate tasks or add functionality. Macros can be created using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) and provide advanced capabilities such as interactive buttons, automated actions, and custom functions.
When a PPSM file is opened, PowerPoint enables the execution of macros, allowing the presentation to respond to user interactions or perform predefined actions. This enables the creation of interactive slideshows and enhances the overall user experience.
The PPSM format is particularly useful for creating self-running presentations, kiosk displays, or interactive training modules. By incorporating macros, presenters can automate processes, trigger specific actions, or customize the behavior of the presentation based on user input.
It’s important to note that due to the potential security risks associated with macros, some organizations may have security settings in place that restrict the execution of macros in PowerPoint files. Therefore, when sharing PPSM files, it’s essential to ensure that recipients are aware of the macro functionality and have appropriate security settings enabled.
