Upload PowerPoint slides into SharePoint 2010 Slide Library


With SharePoint 2007 and 2010 we can upload slides from our PowerPoint and upload and share them in a SharePoint Slide Library.  Here’s how to do it.


Create Slide Library

Go to Site Actions and select More Options.


From the list select Slide Library and click create.


Give you slide library a name and click Create at the bottom of the page.


Take note of the URL of the document library.

Upload slides from PowerPoint

Open the presentation you want to share slides from.  Click on File, Save and Send and then click on Publish Slides


Now select Publish Slides.  You will now be asked which slides you would like to upload.  Either check the individual slides you want to upload to click on Select All.


Enter the URL of the Slide Library we created earlier and click Publish.


When you click publish you will see at the bottom of the PowerPoint a status bar letting you know when it the upload process is going.


When it has completed it you will see the slides you uploaded in the SharePoint Slide Library.

    Alex, thank you for the information. It was looking like the solution for me until I tried to upload the slides and the system prompted me that to perform this function “PowerPoint Professional is Required”. I have Office 2007, but not the professional edition.

    Hi Alex,

    Is there any smart way to present those slides to users? I have tried something different (saving ppt as web page and showing it with page viewer web part), and it looks fine in Internet Explorer, but in Safari it looks completely different. Is there a way to present the slides that are published in a way you describe?
