Installed on Win7 64 bit PC with MSO 2010 installed.

Works fast to convert PDF of any size. Each conversion records each line of text as a separate text box. Converted graphics and images perfectly. No issues.

Main limitation is that most PDF files are portrait and most PPTs are landscape so changing page layout after conversion is ugly and requires major editing but still easier than copy and paste.

Will keep but not sure how much I'll use it. Thanks GAOTD and vendor.

A comment by a knowledgeable person is always welcome, like Asraf, Giovanni or Mike. Information is information. If it's pertinent and helpful, who cares where it came from! LancasterPA - even if you don't agree with their comment, they help lots of people, so refrain from your comments. Some of us have multiple machines. I have six which are used daily - some of them have variations of software because of space, OS, etc. We are all not just looking for free software because we are tighter than bark on a tree. So stating that MS Powerpoint needs to be installed means that I can't put it on just any machine. Three of my machines have Powerpoint. Three have a suite that reads and writes PPT, but it is not MS. What about my tablet? No MS so the app's that read and write .ppt or .pptx won't work. That was a very important comment that you just couldn't get. So stop taking shots at people that know....stop and learn. These guys are great - knowledgeable and willing to pass on their knowledge to others. Thanks to Asraf, Giovanni, Mike and others.

I do tons of teaching around the world for schools and public agencies. I find mountains of valuable PPT presentations from government agencies and other sources with no copyright limitations at all. Usually, though, they are posted as PDF documents. In fact, most government agencies, and most conferences, ONLY publish their reports as PDF documents. Using this tool, and a few others like it, I can assemble up to date presentations, I can update obsolete or incomplete presentations, or even update old versions of my presentations that were posted by conference conveners in PDF format. I ALWAYS give credit/attribution to the correct original source in my presentations. Many of the tools that Giovanni posted are fine, but few go as far to recreate the slides with the original text in a file that can be edited. Some produce slide by slide pictures w/o editable text. Yes, it is true that even this Simpo product cannot decompose a complicated graphic image correctly, but in many cases it does a good enough job that I can touch up the resulting slide. In short, I find this PDF-to-PPT tool -- and the similar products from AnyBizSoft, Wondershare, and Xilisoft to be "killer apps" for me. I do not know which one came first, or if an of them are actually the same code. I've downloaded and used a couple of them here at GOTD over the years, and each has strengths and weaknesses, depending on the source PDF file. Truth be told, this is one of the few applications I have paid to have full license for.

Just tried using Nitro Reader 2 PDF reader and Open Office Impress and it was trivial to copy and paste page by page from a PDF file into a slideshow, giving me FULL control over the aspect ratio conversion that you WILL be presented with since most PDF files are portrait page oreientation and most PPT(X) slideshows and projection systems and PC and laptop screens are landscape oriented. Of course I have avaialble all the transitions and other effects and ability to add other content too. I don't believe this is a niche market, it's just a lazy persons tool to produce a compromised hit or miss automatic conversion. It is the hit or miss nature of such automated aspect ratio content conversion that makes this type of tool not the best idea to develop as the process needs asthetic input on what content can be morphed to the different aspect ratio and what cannot or can only be morphed say 60% and padded out with a matching background colours... such asthetic choices cannot be automated with consitent results.

So I am saying, those of you that do not own MS PowerPoint don't think you have missed out today, your open source or 3rd party slideshow production tool and PDF viewer can be used to make far superior slideshows in any of your chosen formats :)

would it be just as plausable to print individual PDF pages to an image file or use a free PDF to image converter then take open office impress and use that to create one slide per page-image file and save it as a PPT, PPTX, SWF or even PDF as well as an impress native file... in doing so possibly add transitions and all sorts of things this one trick poney that is just a front end to microsofts powerpoint API rather than a self contained program owned by the developer themselves.

LancasterPA if a comercial program by a 3rd party is reqiired before todays offereing will even function, then it is a "Requirement" and an additional cost not factored into the price of the product. PowerPoint is NOT needed to view PPT or PPTX files even if ones sticks to microsoft products as they offer a free viewer, let alone the free 3rd party PPT viewing and creation offerings. IT IS A Con: to sell a product that requires specific versions of comercial PowerPoint for it to work without specifying that up front prior to any deal.

Personaly in my experience on various chats and formums I smell what is commonly called a "Troll" the more they are fed the more they post purposfully objectionable material. Better to express disagreement with the comment votes than to feed them.

Convert PDF files to PowerPoint
Keeps layout, tables, and original text during conversion
Convert up to 200 PDF files at a time
Convert whole PDFs or a select pages
It can also convert encrypted PDF documents
Very easy-to-understand interface



Needs Microsoft PowerPoint installed to convert documents
Output/conversion quality is a hit or miss
Output PowerPoints are PPT if you have Microsoft Office 2003 installed and are PPTX if you have Microsoft Office 2007 and higher installed -- you have no choice in selecting which type you want


Converting documents is always helpful. Sometimes we just need our files in a different format, and other times we need them converted so other people can view them on their computer, which may be lacking the tools that you have. Regardless of the reason, programs that can convert documents are always helpful.

PDF files are some of the most converted file types. Sometimes people want to convert to PDF, and sometimes they want to get away from that format type. PDF to PowerPoint Converter is able to help you convert your PDF files to PowerPoint presentations. For the most part, it is able to do this pretty well.

When converting your documents, PDF to PowerPoint gives you a lot of options. For example, you can choose to do a batch conversion or a single page. The program supports up to 200 PDF files being converted at once. Thus, the program is strong enough to handle your biggest tasks.

One thing that the program claims to do is keep the original text, formatting, tables, and so on during conversion. Most of the PDF files I converted with this program looked just fine in their PowerPoint form. However, I did notice some slight differences on a few documents. In some spots the quality of the content made it almost unreadable. This did not happen often, but it was still noticeable when it did. Overall I'd say the conversion quality is a hit or miss.

Last but not least, I would like to note that you need Microsoft PowerPoint installed in order to use this program. During conversion, it will check to see if you have it. Unfortunately, it does not do this check until the end. If you do not have Microsoft PowerPoint, the program will give you an error. Simply having a PowerPoint viewer will not be enough, you need the whole program.

Overall, the program does what it says it will do... except for the times that it doesn't. The key to this program is conversion quality (because, after all, how useful is a PDF to PowerPoint converter that doesn't generate good quality PowerPoints) and that quality is a hit or miss; some PDFs will be converted well while others won't -- it just depends on your PDF.

On the bright side, the price tag is relativity low for this program so anyone that needs PDF to PowerPoint converting capabilities won't have to bust the bank to get it. However, don't expect this program to work miracles; it is almost a guarantee that you will have to make some tweaks to the output PowerPoints to get them to look like what you want. The question is how much of a tweak, and that depends on your input PDF. You get what you pay for, right?

I recommend this product for people who are looking to convert PDF files to PowerPoint due to the fact that there aren't viable alternatives that I know of (that are as cheap as this program). My recommendation isn't a testament to the quality of this software because, as I've already said, conversion quality is a hit or miss. Rather, my recommendation is a 'there-is-no-alternative' recommendation. Sometimes targeting a niche area works in your advantage, and this is the case with Simpo PDF to PowerPoint Converter.

I agree with Giovanni on this one. It is a good offering.
Another fine posting Giovanni. Keep up the good work.

I see the Assraf apologists can't stand the fact that at this writing Assraf has -9 and Giovanni is at +55. In there mind it can't possibly be correct. It must be foul play.

How about people are catching on that Assraf's only reason to post here, is to get traffic to his web site. He could care less about anything else.

Giovanni posts here and is interactive in the thread.

It seems that finally justice is being served and all is right with the world.

Good for you Giovanni.

#4 - Dude, dottech IS Ashraff, fool. Copying something from your own website is NOT plagiarism in any way, shape, or form. Nice way to accuse someone of wrongdoing without doing your due diligence to check your facts. (Not to mention the fact that the only way you knew he had copied the conclusion was by clicking on the link THAT HE HAD PROVIDED.)

While we're on an ethical/legal tangent, since Microsoft could not trademark the PPT filetype, and everyone knows what that abbreviation stands for, there are plenty of people who use other software renditions of PPT and refer to them as PowerPoint documents even when they technically are not -- like people saying Xerox or Kleenex when they are not using either. Since the software given away today does NOT say "Microsoft Powerpoint," and Microsoft's trademark rules--set up to avoid the "xerox" and "kleenex" issue--specifically state that other companies CANNOT use "PowerPoint" in another software's name, your average Joe might come to GotD and reasonably believe that it might be compatible with ALL software that deals with the PPT filetype. I understand your argument, and even chuckled at your the sarcastic humor in your observation. However, while it would be more understandable for people to expect to use this generically if it were called "PDF to PPT Converter," but it is also technically illegal for Simpro to use "PowerPoint," so I think it might also be understandable to think that the company was using "PowerPoint" as a generic reference to the PPT filetype.

I am a teacher who uses PowerPoint frequently in lessons so the ability to convert a pdf file to ppt will be very useful.
Nitro has been mentioned-This is by far my first choice as a pdf reader with the bonus that it will extract images and text but it is quite different to this software so both will earn their place on my computer

Having been observing the comments on this page today, I noticed a that the votes on Comment #1 (Ashraf's useful review), which quite understandably had been steadily growing, suddenly plunged from about +30 to about -15.

At exactly the same time, the votes on Comment #4 (LancasterPA's sarcastic, insulting and factually inaccurate response to #1 Ashraf) soared from the minuses to about +25.

Something doesn't quite add up, to my mind.

Anyway, thanks to Simpo and GotD for today's product, which seems to do a reasonable job with the conversion. I remember getting it here years ago, about 2009.

I think powerpoint is a dead format.
The alternative is called VIDEO.
I know I will get voted down.
Just saying.
If you really want my opinion...
It's only more power point ranger waste.

Produced video comes out of my camera, not into my NLE.

And in my honest opinion it's more noise. Let me explain from going from one format to the other constantly it degrades the original, it opens the possibility of more exploits and less payed attention to installed software updates. In the end we have ppt worms being used politically, how is that moving forward?

Very few people use Microsoft PowerPoint these days and why convert to a presentation from a decade ago technology.
Today's presentations are all about visual movies, movements, video, audio and all done on a universal platform like dvd that not need any other software to run the presentation.
Just plug in a dvd player on a monitor or TV and push play, that is what our company does for any kind of presentations.
Leave the PDF files as they are, most of them can not be used for presentations after the conversion.

Since years I use my own test-set of 4 PDF files for facing PDF converters with several ralistic tasks.

My results:

1.) openig results with MS-Office:
resulting files are only partially correct…

2. openig results with Libre/Open-Office
not able to open resulting files…

3.) openig results with Presentations 2012 (Softmaker)
not able to open resulting files…

4.) Online Konverter: .pptx zu .ppt:
“Error” while opening files…

Conclusion:
only of limited use - while at least some results were very good.
Due to the small size of the package it might be a keeper for some of you.

If you have the expensive Microsoft Office installed in your machine, or are clever enough know the right tricks to install it without spending big bucks (hint, hint...LOL!!), this GAOTD is a KEEPER, especially for those out there (writers, teachers, webmarketers etc...) who are eager to publish some crucial books or courses for their readers/students/subscibers on their own websites.
Other than that I can't see any other use.
So, as Microsoft Powerpoint user, I give it a THUMBS UP, since it's able to preserve exactly the original text contents, layouts, tables, charts and formatting of the original PDF files, which is exactly what a PDF converter should always do. And above all it gives users the ability to convert their PDF files to PowerPoint in two modes: Partial (any pages of the entire PDF) and Whole!!

Please DO NOT give it a THUMBS DOWN simply because you use OpenOffice!!!

But what if you didn't want to install anything in your machine and most of your potential readers do not have MICROSOFT OFFICE installed in their machines? No problem...

And how about convert your PPT files from your PDFs into a more appealing VIDEO??

If you would instead love to make great online presentations in FLASH format but don't have Office installed in your machine, because you are a beggar or don't know the right tricks to grab it for cheap (LOL!!), well you could use this amazing FREE tool for that, kissing your wallet goodbye for good:

http://www.powerbullet.com/index.php

As you can see presentations can be exported as Flash embedded in HTML format or even as an .exe file: how cool is that??

Alternatively you could also convert your PDF and TEXT files into a more appealing and professional FLIPBOOK, rather than to PPT:

Did you know that you can do that for FREE?

http://www.3dpageflip.com/free-pdf-to-flash/index.html
http://www.flashbookmaker.com/free-flashbook-creator/index.html

And what if you could record VIDEOS from a connected webcam and then make printed FLIP BOOKS of them on the fly for FREE??

Ok, Giovanni...this is too good to be true...stop telling BS, right?

Thank you Mister Rogers, that's my point. #12 I believe plagiarism is when you write something and don't give credit to whom ever wrote it. Nuff said.

Back to what this Comment section is really all about. I have done 12 conversions and it hit the mark every time. I certainly believe that others have had lesser results. If this program works for you great but as stated there are other programs if this fails you on a PDF conversion to "Microsoft PowerPoint". http://www.convertpdftopowerpoint.com/ Has an on line trial version that sends the Conversion to your e-mail. They have a free trial too if you want to download it.

GOTD and Simpo is giving this to us Free of charge. Just say thank you. If you can't use it because they don't have a cell phone version, it is not made for a cell phone. It is made for MICROSOFT POWERPOINT. Thank you GOTD and Simpo.

Tried it on a 7-page PDF. Each page had one big photo with a dropshadow, and a text title.

RESULTS:
1. Made all pages Portrait orientation even though about half were Landscape.

2. Converted all text to Times New Roman in spite of the fact that the fonts were embedded in the PDF doc.
3. Turned drop shadows into solid gray shapes.


I couldn't find any options to make relevant adjustments.
I think it would be easier just to do it in PP.

@Joe #11
Seems today's GAOTD converts FROM PDF to PPT, not from "300+file types" to PDF. Try the other end of the stick.

This software is no use to people who haven't got Micro$oft PowerPoint, as has been pointed out. This is a 'con' in two senses: Ashraf's sense and, to a degree, GAOTD's, because M$ PPT is stated to be a requirement, as far as I can see.

For people with M$ PPT, doesn't M$ provide a convertor from PDF?

@11. This program is not to create a PDF but to create a PTT. That is a difference!
It is very simple, you even cannot choose the output folder. But if you have to present a dokument, you only have as a PDF, and you want to enrich the presentation, it might be a help.

@LancasterPA (#4): Plagiarism? That's a serious allegation. Ashraf never claimed to be the author of that review, but he's authored plenty of others on dotTech in the past four years. He used to post reviews directly on this site but I'm guessing he got fed up with the 99% drivel that makes up this comments section these days. I'd trust his (or any dotTech review) over anything I've seen around here. If you want to rag on someone for copying and pasting, look no further than your "king of freebies", Giovanni. If you're looking for a thorough, articulate review of software, including GOTD offers, rather than rants from people who can't figure out how to use a program, dotTech is where you'll find them.

I simply do not understand why vendors waste so much time, energy and money on a conversion software that has only one conversion feature. Nitro's PrimoPDF free.

Create PDF files with the web's most popular free PDF converter. PrimoPDF lets you convert to PDF from any file you can print, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more. Key benefits:


Completely free PDF creator — no trial, no registration, no catch!

Create PDF files from 300+ file types.

to #4 I have tried the program and I think I understand what ashraf meant by "hit and miss" the program is not perfect I encountered 3 PDF files (out of total 4) that the program did convert but the layout was completely different. as for the Microsoft PPT requirement, Ashraf did mentioned 'Microsoft' so I guess he meant that if you are using KingSoft PowerPoint you would not be able to use the program. I myself do have a Microsoft PPT so I could not check the claim, but if it is so, its a valid CON claim

Re #4: there is other software that handles ppt-files. Like OpenOffice, LibreOffice and SoftMaker office, to name just a few. The first two are free, the third costs around $50 for three computers and is giving away a simplified version at the very moment. I cannot afford having Microsoft Office on all my PC`s, so I use alternatives.

No action after I run the program of PDF2PPT.exe. Why?

@Lancaster PA
Many people use other presentation programs such as Open/Libre Office, Softmaker or Kingsoft Office which can show and edit .ppt/.ppt files.

How is "Needs Microsoft PowerPoint installed to convert documents" a con when it is a Microsoft PowerPoint Converter Ashraf. I guess all these programs are cons if you don't have a computer either. Thanks for the comments or plagiarism from dottech.org. It would be helpful if you actually used the program and gave an opine. Final Verdict is someone elses opinion.

Tried it, Works with Win 8 x64. Does exactly what it states. I did not find at all the comment, "Output/conversion quality is a hit or miss" but neither did Ashraf. He just copied what someone else said. In my opinion it is a keep and works.

Far below expectations.
Unable to extract image from text page.
For me this software is useless.
