Embedding in PowerPoint

Preceden has a feature for exporting your timeline as an image that's optimized for embedding in PowerPoint presentations:

1. Determine Your Presentation's Slide Size

The slide size is important because it helps Preceden figure out how wide of an image to generate. To figure out your presentation's slide size, click the Design tab in PowerPoint then click the Slide Size button.

The screen size will be highlighted as either Standard (4:3) or Widescreen (16:9):

2. Export Your Timeline as a PNG for PowerPoint

Click the PowerPoint button below your timeline and select the slide size you determined in step 1.

3. Add the Image to Your Slide

You can do this by dragging and dropping the PNG onto the slide, or going to Insert > Picture > Picture from File....

By default the image won't have ideal dimensions and may look something like this:

4. Optimize the Image Dimensions

Select the image and its size properties, set the Scale Height and Scale Width to 25%:

This will ensure the text in the image is crisp and clear in your presentation.
