Visme is an online presentation maker that has everything you need to create a nice slideshow. Basic formatting tools and standard presentation features are included, and the interface is very friendly to work with.

My Thoughts on Visme

Visme leaves me with strange feelings because it has some great features but also some pretty unlikable ones.

I really don't like that you can't download your presentation in a usable format. Getting an image version of the file is hardly useful for presenting to someone, especially considering the entire presentation saves as one huge image.

On the other hand, there are tons of nice designs and images you can use for slides, as well as automatic spell check, sharing, and some unique text editing features.

I wouldn't recommend Visme for a general request of a good online presentation maker, but after trying a few others, like Google Slides and Zoho Show, maybe you'll like what it has to offer.
