Presentation graphics software is a type of software package designed to present graphic information in the form of a slide show. This software also integrates drawings, text, charts, music, animation and sound effects into the presentation.

Ideal for businesses and training purposes, presentation software has three main functions: It is an editor that allows text to be inserted and formatted into the show, it provides a way to insert and manipulate graphic images, and it presents information in the form of a side show. Microsoft Excel, Harvard Graphics, Apply Keynote and Corel Presentations are all types of presentation graphics software.
