Creating presentations using SlideRocket is very easy, as it is a web-based application. There is a free plan that you can sign up and use to create your presentations. It supports PowrPoint 2007 files, so if you have been already working on PowerPoint, you can import your old files to SlideRocket to start from where you left.

To use objects on your slide, you can either take from SlideRocket’s assets or upload your own from your local machine.
Once you are done, you can even set restrictions as to who can view your presentation or whether they will require a password to see the presentation. That’s not all, when you are done creating your slideshow, you can share it or embed it on blog or website. That’s pretty cool of SlideRocket.
