  • What quality of images or photographs can I put in my presentation? Can I use high resolution images?

    We 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 converted slideshow.

    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?

    The 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.
