True Slide: Change Size Of Your PowerPoint Slides To Match Screen Size
True Slide Resize is an application by OfficeOne that can be used for resizing your slides according to the size of your screen. This tool has been developed by the same developers who brought us the previously reviewed PowerViewer, InkTools and ShapeLocker applications. Like the previous Office One tools, True Slide resize also enhances the functionality of Microsoft PowerPoint by allowing you to change the aspect ratio between 4:3, 16:9 and 16:10, without making your slides look vague and distorted.
True Slide Resize can be installed like any common application after which a button to resize your slides will become automatically available on the Home tab of Microsoft PowerPoint (for users using PowerPoint 2007 or above). Click this button to proceed with resizing your slides.
This will launch a dialog box from where you can select a desired slide size. It is worth mentioning here that the trial version of this application only resizes 5 slides for each PowerPoint presentation.
The below images shows a presentation slides resized using the True Slide Resize application. As you can see from the below screenshot, these slides have been resized to the widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 (720×405). While you can use this application to resize slides running on older versions, Microsoft PowerPoint provides widescreen support via built-in options in PowerPoint 2013. For more details see this post: Make Amazing Widescreen Presentations Using PowerPoint 2013.
True Slide Resize is a paid application, however you can also download it on a trial basis. It works with the following versions of Microsoft PowerPoint:
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2002
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2003
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2007
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 (32-bit, 64-bit)
