How To Convert Canva To Google Slides

Canva is a fantastic tool that provides a plethora of options for designing visually appealing presentations. But what if you want to incorporate your Canva design into Google Slides or share it with someone who prefers Google Slides? In this post, we guide you through the process of converting your Canva presentations to Google Slides.

Step 1: Download Your Canva Presentation

The first step in this process is to download your Canva presentation. To do this, navigate to the File menu in your Canva interface. Click on the ‘Download’ option.

You will then need to select the file type you want to download. For our purposes, the best file type to choose is ‘PowerPoint (PPT)’. This file type keeps your design elements editable and is compatible with Google Slides.

Step 2: Upload the Downloaded File to Google Drive

Once your file is downloaded, the next step is to upload it to Google Drive. Open your Google Drive and then click on the ‘+ New’ button on the top left corner of the interface. Select ‘File upload’ from the dropdown menu and then select the saved PowerPoint file from your device and upload it.

Step 3: Open the File With Google Slides

After the upload is complete, navigate to the uploaded file in your Google Drive. Right-click on the file and then select ‘Open with’. From the dropdown menu, choose ‘Google Slides’. Your Canva presentation will be opened in Google Slides and can be edited as per your needs!

Things to Remember

While this process is relatively straightforward, there are a few things to remember:

  • Some of the Canva elements might not transfer perfectly to Google Slides. It is recommended to review and adjust your slides if necessary.
  • If you used any paid Canva assets in your presentation, make sure you have the necessary rights to use them outside of Canva.

Converting Canva presentations to Google Slides is a simple and effective way to enable wider sharing and editing of your designs. We hope this guide helps you in making your presentation more accessible and versatile!
