Three ways to insert PDF to PowerPoint 2007

In our daily study or work, we sometimes have to use slides for presentations using PowerPoint 2007.

Step 3. Customize and Convert

You can customize the output folder or save the exported files in the same folder as resource. Besides, you can choose page numbers in Selected Pages field, such as 1, 3, 5, 7-10. Then click Convert button and all the imported files would be converted from PDF to PPT 2007 in seconds.

Cons: not free

We would see that not a way can meet all needs, so choose an appropriate way by your request is important. For people who seldom use slides for presentation, the former two ways would be better. And for teachers, students and others who usually need PowerPoint Presentations, PDF to PowerPoint 2007 would be an effective way to import PDF into PowerPoint.
