We already explored how Haiku Deck now plugs right within SlideShare and allows you to create slides. In this post, we will explore the Haiku Deck interface as shown in Figure 1, below.

The interface is explained, as marked in Figure 1, above:

  1. Title Bar: Here you enter the title of your presentation. You can just click on the title and type to add or change the title.

  2. Help: If you have any confusion regarding the menu usage, you can click on the question mark icon (?). This brings up an overlaid screen with all options pointed out, as shown in Figure 2 below. Click anywhere to exit this screen, or click the large More Help button on the top left to bring up further help options.

  3. Preview Your Presentation: This option allows you to check and play your current presentation in Slideshow view

  4. Publish: Once you are all done working with your presentation, you can directly publish your slides to SlideShare by clicking this Publish button.

  5. Fonts/Themes: Haiku Deck within SlideShare comes with 6 default themes and supporting fonts. You can access and select these themes (see Figure 3, below) by clicking on the Fonts/Themes button.

  6. Select Slide Type: Contains 5 slide types -- a header and sub-header slide, a numbered list slide, a bulleted list slide, multiple lines of text, and a centered slide with a logo on it. Choose the one that suits your content – and if you cannot find one that exactly suits your need, you can always use a different layout (see point 8) for your selected slide type.

  7. Set the background: This option allows you to add backgrounds to your slides. You can insert pictures as backgrounds by typing your search term in the search terminal that you see in Figure 4, below.

    Additionally, you can opt to insert your own custom picture by selecting the My Pictures option (see Figure 4, above), and choose from the various options shown within the resultant screen (see Figure 5, below).

    Besides pictures, you also have the options to insert charts and solid fill colored slide backgrounds.

  8. Slide Layout: This option provides available slide layouts for the Slide Types (refer to point 6) you have selected. These are basically differing text alignments, as shown in Figure 7, below.

  9. Add Slide: This option allows you to add new slides in your presentation.

  10. Slide Pane: Here You can move your slides, make copies, delete and reorder as required (see Figure 8, below).

The presentation you work upon is automatically saved to your My Uploads section within your SlideShare account. Unpublished presentations are marked as "Drafts", as shown in Figure 9, below. Once you are done working with your presentation, just click the Publish button within the Haiku Deck editing environment. Only then the presentation you’ve created will be made live on SlideShare within your account.

Unfinished presentations are saved as Drafts
