Including PDFs in Webinar Presentations

Most web conferences and webinars consist of uploading PowerPoint slides or sharing applications, but occasionally customers want to share PDFs and images during the presentation. These could be presented by sharing the PDF with application. However, this can be cumbersome if you only want to share a few pages of a PDF or if the document is very large. It is much easier just to have that content available as individual slides in your ReadyTalk presentation.

While you cannot directly upload PDF files into your ReadyTalk Chairperson interface, there is a fairly simple work-around. Try these steps to quickly get high-quality slides uploaded for a ReadyTalk presentation from your PDF file:


  • Start with your PDF presentation. If the pages are arrange in landscape mode, your presentation slides will better fit the ReadyTalk slide format.

  • Convert the page of your slide presentation to PNG format. There are many tools available for converting your PDF.

    • The most common is Adobe Acrobat. Open the PDF and under “File” select “Save As.” Change the file type to PNG and select save.

    • Another tool for converting PDF’s is Aiseesoft’s PDF to Image Converter (list price $25). To convert your PDF, choose “Add File" to load your PDF, change the “Output Type” to PNG Format, and press “Convert.” Individual images of each page of your PDF will be placed in the “Output Folder” and automatically named so they will upload in order.


  • Now you can add these images to your In the ReadyTalk Conference Controls, choose “Upload Slides.” Select all of the converted image files that you created in the last step and upload them.


Including PDFs and images are a great way to present content to webinar attendees or during a collaborative without having to share your desktop or applications. It helps you to maintain the flow of the presentation. Do you use PDFs in your presentations? What other file formats do you want to be able to upload into your presentation?
