- What quality of images or photographs can I put in my presentation? Can I use high resolution
don't recommend any particular quality or resolution for the images.
But remember that if you use very high resolution images, while the
output quality will be great, the time to download may increase, and the transition from slide to slide in
the slideworld will be slower. On the other hand, using very low
quality input images may lead to haziness or distortion in the
Thus the decision on the quality of the
images to be used, is a trade off between the desired output quality
and the time taken to download an actual slideshow into the embedded
player. Higher the quality you want, slower the file download will
happen, affecting the overall experience.
- Why is my file upload taking so long?
time taken to upload a presentation file depends on how big your file
is, how fast your internet connection is and how busy our servers are.
It can take more than a few minutes. Please be patient.
