According to Adobe, most of the PDF files are generated from office documents like Word, PowerPoint, Excel and etc. After editing contents in the editable format files, people would like to save them as PDF documents for sharing, storing, or other usage like survey.
Today, I would talk about the business about teachers and speakers. These kinds of people would use Microsoft PowerPoint frequently for teaching and illustrating. Inevitably, they need refer to some slides which were saved as PDF format, maybe copy some text, extract images or recover all the slides. And let’s back to our topic, how to add PDF files into PowerPoint Slides?
Here I would introduce you some free solutions, which would be helpful.
1. Add PDF files using Adobe Reader
You just need to open PDF file in Adobe Reader and Click Camera icon and then select the images and press Ctrl+C to copy the images/area to the clipboard. Then open PPT slides and press Ctrl+V to paste the images/area to PPT slides from the clipboard. You can set the location where the image appears as well as revise the image size. It is up to you. What’s more, you can save the image as PNG, JPG, and Gif format and so on.
2. Using PowerPoint 2007 Object functions.
You can click the Insert ribbon to launch the service. The first button is Acrobat option, which means, you firstly need install Adobe Reader on your computer.
Click OK to open the box to choose PDF file you want to insert, Click default option and you would find PDF files are inserted into PPT slides for presentation. Then you can view them on PPT presentations, Click the icon and the PDF file will be viewed on Adobe Reader.
The two free approaches can help you add PDF into PPT slides so easy. However, there are some drawbacks we cannot avoid. For example, the PDF file we want to add is locked to prevent us open, copy or print it. Besides, we cannot edit the original PDF files for personal usage. If we really use the PDF documents in PPT slides unlimitedly, we have to convert PDF to PPT. By the conversion from PDF to PPT, we can edit PDF freely in editable PPT or PPTX format. And we can also use Acrobat to edit, but trust me; it would not be an easy work. Comparing two ways, I still prefer to the first way, though both of them may not be free.
