Corel Presentations is a Windows application used to create presentations, much like Microsoft PowerPoint. It comes with presentation editing features and support for various presentation file formats. The application is only available as part of the Corel WordPerfect Office suite, along with the WordPerfect word processor and Quattro Pro spreadsheet application.

Presentations supports several presentation formats, including its native .SHW format, along with Microsoft PowerPoint .PPTX and .PPT files. The application gives you many tools to customize your slide shows to reflect your subject material and provides over 80 different themes and templates organized into different categories based on color, screen size, and design.

Presentations enables you to create a dynamic show, with text box, image, video, and chart insertion capabilities. Inserted images can be manipulated to fit your theme, whether it be adjusting the contrast and brightness or converting an image to black and white. The application also provides a wide array of slide transitions with behaviors you can customize, such as transition speed and direction.


Presentations is an attractive choice for crafting your next presentation. It provides an array of themes and templates, image manipulation tools, and customizable slide transitions, among other features. Although it is not as robust as PowerPoint, Corel Presentations is a worthy competitor and a good choice for your next presentation.
