Unfortunately, what makes great is also what can quite easily turn out to be its downside, i.e. the availability of a plethora of presentation options. One can get a little overwhelmed when using Slides for the first time. However, once you get the hang of it, you might find Slides quite easy and useful. The Slides editor allows adding text, images, shapes, Iframe and HTML code via the options located at the left sidebar.
