Multiple-size Embedded Presentations from Google Docs

Google Docs has just updated their embedded presentation feature to support multiple sizes, so now presentations can look even better in blog posts. To add a presentation to your blog, create it in Google Docs and copy the “Mini Presentation Module” HTML into a blog post.

You can include YouTube videos, images, and text captions into slides to condense and display a “deck” of graphical content in a concise format in your posts.

Google Docs is a free, web-based word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation application

Embedding presentations in a website

If you’d like to post a presentation online, you’ll need to publish it first. To publish a presentation, follow the instructions below:
Click the Publish tab in the upper-right corner of the screen
Click the Publish document button
After publishing your presentation, use the Select presentation size dropdown menu to choose the preferred size of your embedded presentation
Copy and paste the code that appears into your website to embed it. Small or medium sizes work best in blogs, while large is most suitable for onscreen viewing and reading.
Once you’ve embedded a presentation, please keep in mind that others can access the code and embed this presentation on additional sites by clicking the Menu button at the bottom-right of the embedded presentation.
