  • Fonts in Slideshare

    1. 1. Fonts in Slideshare Avoid font disasters – choose suitable fonts right away July 2010 (v 1.2) Jasso Lamberg www.typo.fi Licenced CC BY-SA
    2. 2. The problem with Slideshare ✤ When you uplode your presentation (ppt, keynote etc) to Slideshare some of the fonts might look weird & misplaced. ✤ This happens when Slideshare doesn’t support the fonts you have used in your presentation.
    3. 3. Solution nro 1 ✤ Use nice fonts that will make your presentation stand out at the conference. Upload your presentation to Slideshare and experience an epic failure. You’ll end up uploading your presentation as a pdf-file which means that you will: a) Retain your nice fonts. b)Lose all notes attached to the slides. If your presentation relies heavily on spoken information – like good presentations do – then your Slideshare pdf will be pretty much useless. c) Lose all bullet-by-bullet builds etc. It’s just a pdf stored online. That makes you wonder, why wouldn’t you just use Scribd or something?
    4. 4. Solution nro 2 ✤ Forget your fancy design dreams and try to use very common fonts from the beginning. (Life is full of compromises, isn’t it.) ✤ ...But WHICH fonts will survive the conversion to Slideshare? ✤ Note that often similar fonts have been issued by several foundries and they will result in different outcomes. For example, probably some versions of Garamond will work while the Adobe Garamond Pro that I used doesn’t. ✤ Also whether you are using Powerpoint or Keynote might make a difference.
    5. 5. Let’s test 144 fonts.
    6. 6. What this test does? ✤ This presentation is created with Keynote 09 (version 5.0.3.) ✤ It is uploaded to Slideshare as a zipped Keynote file. ✤ It will demonstrate how some basic fonts survive the transition. ✤ Text slides have an image background, font slides have color bg.
    7. 7. How it works The upper section shows you text with fonts. Some of these will be mangled by Slideshare. The lower section show you a screen capture of how the upper section should look like. They fonts are not really in any particular order. Many of them are from Adobe Font Folio.
