Until now, SlideShare has been a repository of slides you create in other programs such as Microsoft PowerPoint or Apple Keynote – and then upload to their site. And then now something completely different has been announced – the option to create slides within SlideShare itself! In this tutorial, we will explore how you can create a basic presentation within SlideShare.

We are assuming that you already have a SlideShare account – if you do not, it’s easy to create a new SlideShare account. Once you are signed in, follow these steps to create your own slides:

  1. Click on the large Get Started button, shown in Figure 1 below.

  2. You may see a login window pop up. Here you have to sign in with your SlideShare credentials to use the new slide creation features.

  3. Once you are logged in, a prompt window requesting your privacy controls appears – this only happens the first time you use SlideShare’s slide creation features. You now have to click on the Accept button (highlighted in blue within Figure 3, below) to start using Haiku Deck.

    What is Haiku Deck?

    Haiku Deck is essentially an online slide creation service that has now been conveniently plugged right within the SlideShare site – once you accept the terms within the window shown in Figure 3, above – you will seamlessly work right within SlideShare.


  4. After Clicking the Accept button, you’ll be redirected to the presentation mode powered by Haiku Deck (see Figure 4 below).

The presentation mode that you see in Figure 4, above has several interface options that will be explained within our upcoming Haiku Deck within SlideShare tutorial.

Axis Labels are the labels for the Categories and Values on chart axes. So, where do these labels come from? Category axis labels reflect the Category names within your data (typically within the built-in Excel sheet). Values on the other hand are determined by PowerPoint based upon the maximum value in your data -- the minimum value is always set to zero. Of course you can change the Minimum and Maximum values if you want.

Arpit DhariwalArpit Dhariwal is a Senior Product Manager at SlideShare, leading the content acquisition team. The team is committed to offering multiple ways to share ideas and expertise of users with fellow professionals through SlideShare. Prior to joining LinkedIn in 2012, Arpit worked with multiple internet and technology companies. Arpit has a B.Tech from Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information & Communication Technology and an MBA from S.P. Jain Institute of Management & Research.

In this conversation, Arpit discusses SlideShare’s slide creation options.

Geetesh: SlideShare has always been an option to upload and share presentations – what motivated the new slide creation abilities?

Arpit: The evolution of highly visual platforms like Pinterest and Instagram, over the past few years has reinforced what we've seen with SlideShare: visual stories have always been the most popular and compelling content on our platform. However, they are challenging and time-consuming to create for many people. This presented a great opportunity to service content creators by building a 'Create' functionality on SlideShare.

Through a special integration with Haiku Deck, SlideShare users can now easily create compelling visual presentations. This marks a new phase of exploring tools that will help our users share their professional expertise and insights through the power of pictures – for content marketing, professional branding, and knowledge exchange.

Our vision is to provide the simplest way for professionals to share knowledge visually. We're really excited to see presentations our users will create.



Geetesh: Tell us more about the typical user who would use the slide creation options on SlideShare? Also will these be automatically shared?

Arpit: Professionals who have great expertise and thought leadership to share - just not the time to invest in creating amazing decks - will now be able to create insightful visual presentations in no time at all. SlideShare is now the one-stop destination to upload and create presentations - that's true for existing users and we now anticipate that this ability will help attract a new set of people. Creating original presentations helps users build their professional brand, expand their network and followers, and educate fellow professionals.

Presentations created using the tool will be shared automatically with the 70M+ SlideShare community and would also be discoverable on search engines. Users can also choose to make these presentations private.

While learning about chart axes, you will come across two terms, Major and Minor units. These are the intervals at which the axis spaces itself -- as the name itself suggests, you can choose to space the axis at two levels: Major and Minor. PowerPoint sets the Major and Minor units on its own -- many times, this may be exactly what you need. At other times, you may want to set specific intervals for the Major and Minor units for several reasons.

If your chart data values are not so much different from each other, the chart created using this data will not help your audience to differentiate the series representing those values. Our sample data explores how people of different age brackets choose their favorite colors. If you look closely at the data, you will realize that all values span between 285 and 365. So, it makes no sense to even discuss any value lower than 250 or above 370 for this data set.

The text used to label the chart axes in a chart is called an Axis Title. All chart types other than Pie and Doughnut have axes -- and although Radar charts have an axis, there is no provision to add Axis Title for them. In all other chart types such as Column, Line, etc., Axis Titles are not visible by default.
