How To Make Canva Presentation Into Google Slides

Canva is a fantastic tool for creating stunning visual content, including presentations. However, you might find yourself needing to convert a Canva presentation into Google Slides, either for easy sharing or to collaborate with others on your team. In this blog post, we will walk you through a step-by-step process on how to do exactly that.

Step 1: Download Your Canva Presentation

The first step is to download your Canva presentation. To do this:

  1. From your Canva homepage, click on “All your designs” on the left-hand side, and open the presentation you want to convert.
  2. Once you have opened your presentation, click on the “Download” button at the top right corner of the screen.
  3. In the dropdown menu that appears, select “Microsoft PowerPoint”.

Your presentation will download as a .pptx file, which you can open and edit in Microsoft PowerPoint. However, our goal is to convert it into Google Slides, so let’s move on to the next step.

Step 2: Upload Your Presentation to Google Drive

Google Slides is part of Google Drive, so before you can convert your presentation, you need to upload it to your Google Drive. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to and sign in to your Google account.
  2. Click on the “+ New” button on the left-hand side of the screen and select “File upload”.
  3. Navigate to where your downloaded Canva presentation is saved and select it.

Your presentation will now be uploaded to Google Drive, and you can proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Open Your Presentation With Google Slides

After uploading your Canva presentation to Google Drive, you can now open it with Google Slides. Here’s how:

  1. Find your uploaded file in Google Drive and right-click on it.
  2. Move your cursor over “Open with” and then select “Google Slides” from the dropdown menu.

This step will convert your Canva presentation into a Google Slides presentation. Note that this creates a new copy of your presentation, and does not replace the original PowerPoint file.

Step 4: Edit Your Presentation in Google Slides

Your Canva presentation is now a Google Slides presentation, and you can edit it just like any other Google Slides document. All the tools you need are in the toolbar at the top of the page.


And that’s it! You now know how to convert a Canva presentation into a Google Slides presentation. This process is straightforward and allows you to take advantage of the collaboration features available in Google Slides. Keep creating amazing presentations!
