4. LibreOffice Impress
Impress is a simplified alternative to PowerPoint and other professional software to create presentations. This program lacks beautiful interface, some other features and online teamwork functions.
On the other side, LibreOffice is totally free and available on all OS types, including even Windows XP.
Prezi stands outside the row of presentation programs. Developers of this project refused the usual slide format totally. Your presentation here looks like one big map where you can place text, videos, photos, pictures and other info. During the presentation, a camera does not move from slide to slide, but from one point of the map to another, and the required map areas get lighted and zoomed with impressing effects.
Prezi can be used for business presentations, too. But the best use for it is the creative presentation of ideas. Even if you do not have any designer skills, you can create a dynamic presentation that can make every topic attractive. There are many formatting and designing instruments in Prezi. Plus, you can work together with your groupmates or colleagues.
