What slide size should I use for a presentation?
© Presentitude 
It depends on what you are trying to create (and personal preference). 
Here are some rough guidelines.
© Presentitude 
Multi-purpose content that is going to be shown across different platforms ANDprinted. 
4:3 
+ 
=
© Presentitude 
Highly visual content that is ONLYgoing to be shown. 
4:3 
= 
16:9
© Presentitude 
Content that is ONLYgoing to be saved/ printed as a slideument(4:3, letter or A4). 
Letter 
+ 
=
© Presentitude 
Content for specific platforms that shows best in 4:3, such as Slideshareand iPads. 
4:3 
=
© Presentitude 
Content for specific platforms that shows best in 16:9 such as YouTube and 16:9 screens. 
= 
4:3 
16:9

If you are creating a presentation template for your organization –plan ahead and create both a 4:3 and a 16:9 template so users can use the appropriate one.
© Presentitude 
Ohh, I can’t really choose! 
I like my 4:3 slides AND I want to show them?
© Presentitude 
Just be aware of what dimensions the projector supports and how your content might be affected.
© Presentitude 
4:3-slides works for most old projectors BUT when projected on LCD screens, the slide will not fill the screen and you might have black bars on the sides of the slide...

… or the content will stretch and be distorted. Make sure you plan ahead and are familiar with the settings on the computer and the projector. 
4:3
© Presentitude 
So if I use 16:9 I’m always safe when showing my slides?
© Presentitude 
It always depends on the projector in the room where you are presenting.
© Presentitude 
16:9-slides works for new projectors, Plasma/LCD screens and widescreen projectors(most boardroom projectors show 16:9) but always check the aspect ratio in advance. 
16:9
© Presentitude 
What does 4:3 and 16:9 actually mean?
© Presentitude 
“4:3” and “16:9” refers to the aspect ratio of the slide. 
But the actual sizeof a slide with the same aspect ratio can differ.

What does the difference mean?
© Presentitude 
If you had content on a 4:3 slide in PowerPoint 2010 and changed it to a 16:9 slide, everything had to be resized and repositioned.

© Presentitude 
In PowerPoint 2013, if you take your content from a 4:3 slide and move it to a 16:9 slide, the content will fit better on the slide, which means it is easier to change the size.

© Presentitude 
But –I still have PowerPoint 2010 –so I’m stuck with the “old” 16:9 size…
© Presentitude 
Set custom size to 13.33” (width) and 7.5” (height) in the Slide Size menu inthe Design Tab. 
Voila, you are working in the future!

In sum –these are the relationships between the different PowerPoint sizes.

What slide dimensions should you use for your presentations?

  • 2. © Presentitude What slide size should you use? When PowerPoint 2013 came along, the size of the default presentation changed from 4:3 to 16:9. What size should you use for your slides? This is a quick guide to choosing the right size –and the difference between the sizes in different versions of PowerPoint. 10” 7.5”
  • 3. © Presentitude What slide size should I use for a presentation?
  • 4. © Presentitude It depends on what you are trying to create (and personal preference). Here are some rough guidelines.
  • 5. © Presentitude Multi-purpose content that is going to be shown across different platforms ANDprinted. 4:3 + =
  • 6. © Presentitude Highly visual content that is ONLYgoing to be shown. 4:3 = 16:9
  • 7. © Presentitude Content that is ONLYgoing to be saved/ printed as a slideument(4:3, letter or A4). Letter + =
  • 8. © Presentitude Content for specific platforms that shows best in 4:3, such as Slideshareand iPads. 4:3 =
  • 9. © Presentitude Content for specific platforms that shows best in 16:9 such as YouTube and 16:9 screens. = 4:3 16:9
  • 10. © Presentitude Content created in an environment where most current presentations and the main organizational template is 4:3. 4:3 = 4:3 4:3 4:3
  • 11. © Presentitude Content created for an environment where the other presentations are created in 16:9. = 16:9 16:9 16:9 16:9
  • 12. © Presentitude 4:3 16:9 + If you are creating a presentation template for your organization –plan ahead and create both a 4:3 and a 16:9 template so users can use the appropriate one.
  • 13. © Presentitude Ohh, I can’t really choose! I like my 4:3 slides AND I want to show them?
  • 14. © Presentitude Just be aware of what dimensions the projector supports and how your content might be affected.
  • 15. © Presentitude 4:3-slides works for most old projectors BUT when projected on LCD screens, the slide will not fill the screen and you might have black bars on the sides of the slide... HEADLINE
  • 16. © Presentitude … or the content will stretch and be distorted. Make sure you plan ahead and are familiar with the settings on the computer and the projector. 4:3
  • 17. © Presentitude So if I use 16:9 I’m always safe when showing my slides?
  • 18. © Presentitude It always depends on the projector in the room where you are presenting.
  • 19. © Presentitude 16:9-slides works for new projectors, Plasma/LCD screens and widescreen projectors(most boardroom projectors show 16:9) but always check the aspect ratio in advance. 16:9
  • 20. © Presentitude What does 4:3 and 16:9 actually mean?
  • 21. © Presentitude “4:3” and “16:9” refers to the aspect ratio of the slide. But the actual sizeof a slide with the same aspect ratio can differ.
  • 22. © Presentitude 4:3 1 2 3 1 2 4 3 16:9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 A 4:3 slide is 33% wider than it is high. A 16:9 slide is 78% wider than it is high. 9 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 16
  • 23. © Presentitude In PowerPoint 2013 a 16:9 slide has a different size compared to PowerPoint 2010.
  • 24. © Presentitude PowerPoint 2013 16:9 PowerPoint 2010 16:9 10” 5.63” 13.33” 7.5” In metrics 25.4 x 14.29 cm In metrics 33.867 x 19.05 cm
  • 25. © Presentitude What does the difference mean?
  • 26. © Presentitude If you had content on a 4:3 slide in PowerPoint 2010 and changed it to a 16:9 slide, everything had to be resized and repositioned.
  • 27. © Presentitude A 4:3slideon a PowerPoint 2010 16:9slide. 10” 5.63”
  • 28. © Presentitude In PowerPoint 2013, if you take your content from a 4:3 slide and move it to a 16:9 slide, the content will fit better on the slide, which means it is easier to change the size.
  • 29. © Presentitude A 4:3slideon a PowerPoint 2013 16:9slide. 7.5” 13.33”
  • 30. © Presentitude But –I still have PowerPoint 2010 –so I’m stuck with the “old” 16:9 size…
  • 31. © Presentitude Set custom size to 13.33” (width) and 7.5” (height) in the Slide Size menu inthe Design Tab. Voila, you are working in the future! In metrics 33,867 x 19,05 cm
  • 32. © Presentitude In sum –these are the relationships between the different PowerPoint sizes. Standard 4:3 slide 10 x 7.5” 25,4 x 19,05 cm PowerPoint 2013 and earlier Old 16:9 slide 10x5.63” 25,4 x 14,29 cm PowerPoint 2010, 2007 and earlier New 16:9 slide 13.33 x 7.5” 33,867 x 19,05 cm PowerPoint 2013 Graph inspired by Echo Swinfordwww.echosvoice.com
