Java API to Convert PS to PPSX
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 Ppsx format presentation.save("output.ppsx", SaveFormat.Ppsx);
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 PPSX File with Predefined View Type via Java
After converting PS to PPSX, 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 Ppsx format presentation.save("output.ppsx", SaveFormat.Ppsx);

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 PPSX File Format?
The PPXS file format is a file extension used by Microsoft PowerPoint to save presentations in a compressed format. It is an extension of the PPTX file format, which is the default file format for PowerPoint presentations. The “S” in PPXS stands for “compressed”, indicating that the file has undergone compression to reduce its size.
The purpose of the PPXS format is to create smaller file sizes for PowerPoint presentations, making them easier to share, transfer, and store. The compression algorithm used in PPXS files helps to reduce the overall file size while maintaining the content and formatting of the presentation.
PPXS files can be created and edited using Microsoft PowerPoint or other software that supports the PowerPoint file format. They contain various multimedia elements such as text, images, videos, audio, and animations, just like regular PowerPoint presentations.
When opening a PPXS file, PowerPoint decompresses the file to restore it to its original PPTX format, allowing users to view and edit the presentation as they would with any other PowerPoint file.
The use of the PPXS format can be beneficial when working with large presentations or when there is a need to optimize file sizes for sharing or storage purposes. However, it’s worth noting that decompressing the PPXS file to its original PPTX format may require additional processing time.
