How to Create Canva Presentations in Keynote & PowerPoint [VIDEOS]

Create Canva Presentations in Keynote or PowerPointUPDATE: If you’re looking to create PowerPoint presentations with Canva, take a look at this recent post.

Did you know you can create Canva presentations and convert them into Keynote or PowerPoint? You don’t have to do a complete presentation in Canva however you can do several slides and throw those slides right into an existing presentation. You can also keep your business branding in mind when doing a presentation and create templates with your logo, brand colors, and website URL.

I have to tell you I get a tingly sensation of excitement when I think about doing a Canva presentation. I know I’m a Canva nerd… It’s something about creating something from start to finish and seeing it successfully done.

Okay so I made a demonstration video for you below for Keynote. If you have a Mac, you’re most likely using Keynote for your presentation. In this video I show how to fix the text when it comes up short on the download. Take a look.

For those of you who use PowerPoint, I’ve included a PowerPoint demo below for PC users. I have to admit although I have a Mac, I tend to use PowerPoint more since I’m Microsoft certified. I have to let you in on a secret… I’m such a techy nerd that the most romantic lovable gift my husband gave me was Microsoft Office Suite for my Mac. Wow! I can’t believe I told you that. That’s really bad.

I did a post about 3 Ways to Use Canva for Presentations a while back if you refer to it you’ll find out what the next video post will be about. That’s right I’m testing y’all! LOL Check it out and let me know in the comments below.

Remember Content is King & Visual Content is Queen. Fancy up those presentations with beautiful images from Canva. No need to be boring and have bulleted slides. If you need any help you know who to contact!

Content may be King but Visual Content is QUEEN. – TWEET THIS

  1. Thanks, Lillian! This is great! I’m going to have to study up on this…btw, everything you are doing is inspirational. You have really taken the bull by the horns, so to speak

    1. Hello Kathleen! Aw… that’s sweet. I try my best to inform people of how cool and easy Canva can be. It’s just amazing to me what can be done with it. I think entrepreneurs could take full advantage of Canva especially with presentations.

      Take care,

  2. Hi Lillian. Great post. Believe it or not, I am just now learning how to use PowerPoint. I also like and have created quite a few things on it since you introduced it to me. Thank you.

  3. I see that you must really like and enjoy using Canva to take your business to the next level. Elaborate and interactive PowerPoint presentations could be very useful when it comes to presenting your opportunity or benefits of using your products. As my businesses expand, this will be something that I keep in mind and tell others about. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Thanks for sharing this post on Canva Lillian. I have to be honest and say I had never heard of Canva before this and now that I have seen what you can do with it and PowerPoint I will definately be giving it a go:)


  5. Hello Lillian, I for one have never really given canva a try as I always thought it was going to be to difficult, You sure do make it look easy my friend.. Thanks for the Awesome video tutoiral.. Chery :))

  6. Thank you Sooo much! I was at the library for about an hour trying to find out how to do this! Canva only let’s you save 30 slides, and I needed to upload them to Teachable through Power Point. Awesome!

    1. Wonderful, Angel! I’m so glad you found this post and it helped you. If you don’t need transitions or animation, you could also download them as PDFs and then combine the Canva PDF files into a combined PDF using (it’s free!). Just another option.

      Take care,
      Lillian 🙂

  7. Thank you SOOO much for this video tutorial! I created a great presentation in Canva for a virtual speaking event. I submitted it to the person in charge of the event, but they required PowerPoint slides.

    I honestly had no idea if I could convert one to the other, so after a quick Google search, I found this article and your tutorial video. I was able to convert my Canva presentation into PowerPoint slides within minutes, thanks to your video!

    I appreciate it!!

    1. Hi Alicia,

      I’m so happy this was helpful to you! Did you know if you have Canva for Work, they now have a presentation mode? There’s no animation or sound as PowerPoint but if you just need static slides you can do the presentation directly from Canva.

      Canva just gets better and better!

      Take care,

  8. I seriously like your idea of sharing videos in your post. I was having some issues while operating canva but with the help of your video tutorials, I was able to create awesome presentations with it.

    Thanks a lot for sharing them!!

    Cheers 🙂

    1. Hi Alphone,

      So glad you came to visit and this blog post was helpful to you! I’m so glad you used Canva for your presentations. Did you see they’ve added a presentation mode for Canva for Work users? If you don’t need any transitions or sound in the presentation then you can do your presentation right from Canva. It’s pretty neat! I just wrote about it in my latest post –

      Thanks so much for commenting! Although this is an old post, it tells me it’s still useful to others.

      Take care,

  9. This is just what I needed Lillian! I started making a presentation in Canva yesterday and then panicked for a minute as I couldn’t figure out how to get it into Keynote to present. So saving as a PDF is not the way to go, I wouldn’t have thought to save as images, but that makes total sense.

    Thanks for the help!

      1. Awesome, Marianne! So glad you stopped by and was able to get your presentation together. This is such an old post but relevant even today.

        I think this is my most popular post!

        Happy to help!

        Take care,

    1. Hi Ramya,

      No, Canva has not created an audio file add or voice over area for presentations.

      That would be interesting though!

      Take care,

  10. Nice share!!

    All the tips for creating impressive presentations are very well explained. I will surely consider them.

    As in business, PowerPoint presentations are a typical event. In spite of the fact that PowerPoint presentations are not necessarily the best but most effective type of business presentations; moreover they do lend a lot of valuable benefits.
