Aspose.Total for .NET is a powerful package of File Format Automation APIs that makes it easy to Render SVG to PPSM in two simple steps. The first step is to use the PDF Processing API, Aspose.PDF for .NET, to transform the SVG file format to PPTX. This API provides a wide range of features to manipulate PDF documents, such as creating, editing, converting, and merging PDF files. It also supports a variety of file formats, including SVG, PPTX, and PPSM.
The second step is to use the Presentation Processing API, Aspose.Slides for .NET, to convert the PPTX to PPSM. This API provides a comprehensive set of features to create, edit, and manipulate presentations. It supports a variety of file formats, including PPTX, PPSM, and SVG. It also provides a range of features to work with text, shapes, images, and charts.
By using Aspose.Total for .NET, you can easily Render SVG to PPSM in two simple steps. The PDF Processing API, Aspose.PDF for .NET, can be used to transform the SVG file format to PPTX. Then, the Presentation Processing API, Aspose.Slides for .NET, can be used to convert the PPTX to PPSM. This package of File Format Automation APIs makes it easy to manipulate and convert a variety of file formats.
.NET API to Convert SVG to PPSM
Get Started with .NET File Format APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
Document document = new Document("input.svg"); // save SVG as a PPTX document.Save("PptxOutput.pptx", SaveFormat.Pptx); // load PPTX with an instance of Presentation Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Ppsm presentation.Save("output.ppsm", SaveFormat.Ppsm);
Get XMP Metadata from SVG File via .NET
While converting SVG to PPSM, you might need extra XMP metadata information to prioritize your batch conversion process. For example you can get and sort your conversion documents based on creation date and process the documents accordingly. Aspose.PDF for .NET allows you to access a SVG file’s XMP metadata. To get a SVG file’s metadata, you can create a Document object and open the input SVG file. After that, you can get the file’s metadata using the Metadata property.
Document doc = new Document("input.svg"); // get SVG XMP properties Console.WriteLine(doc.Metadata["xmp:CreateDate"]); Console.WriteLine(doc.Metadata["xmp:Nickname"]); Console.WriteLine(doc.Metadata["xmp:CustomProperty"]);
Create Read Only PPSM File via .NET
By using Aspose.Slides for .NET API, you can further enhance the features of your conversion application. One of the feature can be to create your output file read only to increase security. The API allows you to set your PPSM file to Read-Only, which means users (after they open the presentation) see the Read-Only recommendation.
Presentation presentation = new Presentation("PptxOutput.pptx"); // make PPSM read only presentation.ProtectionManager.ReadOnlyRecommended = true; // call save method while passing SaveFormat.Ppsm presentation.Save("output.ppsm", SaveFormat.Ppsm);

What is SVG File Format?
SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is a versatile and increasingly popular image format that offers several benefits for web designers and developers. Unlike other image formats, SVG uses mathematical equations instead of pixels to create smooth and scalable graphics, making it ideal for creating images that need to be displayed at different sizes and resolutions without losing quality.
One of the key advantages of SVG is that it is lightweight and fast loading, which is important for web-based applications that need to deliver a fast and seamless user experience. Since SVG files are vector-based, they are much smaller in size compared to other image formats, which means that they load faster and consume less bandwidth. This makes SVG particularly suitable for mobile devices and situations where bandwidth is limited.
Moreover, SVG files are editable using various software tools, allowing designers to modify and customize the graphics as needed. This flexibility enables quick iterations and easy collaboration between designers and developers.
Furthermore, SVG is compatible with all modern web browsers, making it widely supported across different platforms and devices. It also integrates well with other web technologies, such as HTML and CSS, enabling seamless integration with existing web projects.
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.
