Present.me is a free presentation maker that, instead of editing/creating presentations, presents slides you've already built.

Once you've made a presentation with other presentation software, you can easily upload it to Present.me and then optionally add webcam footage to show yourself explaining the slides.

    My Thoughts on Present.me

    Present.me is hard to compare with similar presentation software because it's not exactly built for editing and creating presentations, but instead for presenting them to the public, which in and of itself is a nice feature.

    It's very helpful that Present.me supports the popular Microsoft PowerPoint file formats. This means nearly any good desktop presentation program, like Kingsoft Presentation and OpenOffice Impress, can produce presentations that will work with Present.me.

    The limit of 3 presentations is pretty restrictive, but once you've made and used one you can actually delete it to make room for others, which may be helpful if you're only using these presentations for short period of time.

    Overall, the website is very easy to use, works quickly, and can be a nice addition to presentation creators so you have a free place to publish your presentations.
