Inserting PDF
You can insert PDFs and documents into your Prezi.
Background music is a great way to bring your Prezi to life.

Be careful when inserting a PDF or any other type of document, they take up a lot of storage space.
When you insert a PDF or any other document it will always insert the whole document.
Here is an example of an inserted PDF.

You can also download your Prezi in 2 formats:

A PDF which again is good if you want someone to review it for you or take away as a handout.

Or you can download it as a Portable Prezi which is good if you don't have any access to the internet.
Select Download as PDF or Download as Portable Prezi
As you can see the PDF is downloading and will save into your download folder on your PC.
And just the same as PDF the Portable Prezi is downloading.

Portable Prezis do take time to download and do take up quite a bit of storage space.
You can create a Prezi and then create a video.

To do this we use screen casting software called Camtasia.

We create the Prezi and then record it using the software, we then produce the video.

Here is an example of a video created using Prezi and Camtasia.
