How exactly you can use this website? You may not only upload and watch the presentations, but embed the slideshows into your own blog or website as well, share your slideshows publicly or privately, market your own event on slideshare, join groups to connect with SlideShare members who share your interests and download the original files. The basic account in SlideShare is free and the owners promise it always will be. In future, they might have a paid account with advanced features but that will not impact the free accounts.A few examples
How does it work? Individuals and organizations upload their presentations (in PowerPoint - ppt, pps, pot and OpenOffice - odp, supported is PDF presentation format as well) to share their ideas, connect with others, and generate leads for their businesses. And anyone can find presentations he or shee needs - on topics that interest them. They can tag, download, or embed presentations into their own blogs & websites.
You can go straight ahead and upload your presentation without any help. But you should know the presentation should not be password protected, if your presentation file contains macros, your should remove them first and if your presentation contains very rare or exotic fonts, they may not be converted perfectly.
The maximum size of the presentation is 100 MB. If you need to upload a larger one then try to reduce the size or resolution of images and the file size will get reduced or consider breaking up the file into multiples smaller files so that each of them is less than 100 MB.A few last words
