Save your slides as pictures

If you want to make your presentation non-modifiable, you save it to *.pdf format or *.ppsx format (PowerPoint Show format - see Automatically show your presentation). However, if you want to publish the presentation on your personal or corporate Web site, the better option is to export slides as separate pictures.

Automatically show your presentation

Instead of opening your PowerPoint presentation file and then clicking F5 or using other ways to start the presentation, you can save your PowerPoint file in the PowerPoint Show format. Also, this format prevents changes in the presentation.
