Thanks! Always happy to have a resource and find ways to “change it up.”
I am sorry, but these designs for a serious work presentation?
I am speechless!
These templates are too good to be free!
I loved the first 9 Templates!
I never knew about beautiful power point templates!
Thank so much Muj!
To be honest, these are pretty ugly.
Generic and overdone brushes and ugly effects.
Bah, I want keynote templates for office.
I agree they look like regular templates nothing special.
Hi, you could try the ones on http://www.muezart.com for editable Keynote products like country maps, business diagrams and illustrations.
Thanks for sharing!
The templates from Templateswise are beautiful and for serious work presentation !
it’s looks nice
I’ll check it l8tr
the one with a girl and pink flowers is the most horrible in the history of templates…
Thanks for the powerpoint template links . It is good to have something different
thanks! I love the red one, is amazing…
The templates look great and at first sight, you will not expect that you can avail them for free! The default templates available in Microsoft PowerPoint are too simple and color schemes seem boring. These 20 templates will surely pass the taste of every PowerPoint user all around the globe especially teenage girls and boys, music lovers, educators, and businessmen. I commend these templates for their simplicity. A good template like these should not have exaggerated designs and color schemes are not supposed to be too bright. The designs should not block most parts of the whole slide especially the center because this is where contents are usually placed.

They have a good collection of business templates.
Nice collection, thx for sharing. A couple of these templates are interesting indeed…
Thanks for all your help. very nice templates
Hi, thanks. nice collection indeed. I used these templates in the past. Nowadays seems like a bit demode.
FYI, Here is a free pack of 10 business templates, look at the bottom, there is a download link: http://www.free-power-point-templates.com/10-free-business-powerpoint-templates-pack/
i love all that
Hi, nice collection, thank you! but these are for me more graphics inserted in a PPT document, with a relatively basic result… some really good templates I like/use are relased by Graphic River. Or you can find other interesting (free ;)) stuffs at: http://www.showeet.com
where can i download these tamplate?
Thanks for the beautiful templates, i think these lovely templates.
dvd-ppt-slideshow.com: When you need to create presentations for my lectures at the university with PowerPoint, broke my head thinking of creative and original designs, we must not forget the incredible good effect of a Slide show.
it is so easy to download powerpoint slides from the PPT Search Engine.
Err, actually they do suck. Design needs to suit the purpose and enhance the subject matter and I’d say that these would overwhelm most of the uses they were downloaded for. Rather keep it simple, look slick and focus on good content that backs up your presso. Each presso is individual.
Yeah, I agree with Benj. These are stock templates that suck way more than you think. A smart designer wouldnt use these at all when better ones are to be found or created.
These suck big.
Amazing collection. It is very helpful for template design.
Here are some for spceial occasions http://www.templateready.com/Powerpoint/Free/Templates.html
this is all good………….but update too often
Look very cool. But how to get these ?
its very good website
really stunning….thanks for sharing
I thought these were supposed to be good but they all suck eagle balls
This PPT templates are awesome…. I like this….
Are you kidding me?! These are hideous!!!
ugly ugly ugly UGLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi, thank you for your sharing template presentations
Here is another great presentation service
I love the arrogant critics. It is amazing how many clueless people there are in this world. Different people like and need different templates for different presentations. And often in a hurry.
If you are so wonderful, build your own.
Grow up children.
Thanx a lot. It really helps me in my research presentation.
thanks for sharing, engineerblogs.net,very nice
Actually, all of these do pretty much suck. If you want a flashy background that takes the focus away from the actual presentation, then go for it. Tired of seeing these overly busy templates that serve no purpose.
Theses are wonderful..
Don’t listen to the people who say otherwise..
awasome free template, but do you have any animated ones..?
WOW!!! These really do suck.
but how can i download these templates?
First of all please let me thank you for your useful post.
Since we’ve changed our domain name from poweredtemplates.com to poweredtemplate.com I kindly ask you to change it in your post as well.
Thank you in advance.
Hello, thank you for this sample… but to be honest, these are not very professional… These are quite basic…
We are a team of passionate Powerpoint graphic designers, you can visit our website to see sample of our work here:
These are not usable for professional use. The layout is poor. There is a large imbalance of white to non-white space. Most of the themes are impractical for anything short of a high school presentation. The color balance and palate is off which will make text difficult to read or an eye strain. Many of the slides are not clean and look slapped together.
They may not suck necessarily, but people who need professional Powerpoint templates won’t be able to do much with these (no offense). Beyond high school, Powerpoint presentations start getting SERIOUS! Especially in the workplace. I need clean, minimalist style templates with charts, graphs, timelines, and stuff. And I’m willing to pay!
Actually, most of those suck, unless you’re a high school or college student that doesn’t understand how to create professional presentations. If you want the oooo’s and aaaah’s over the pretty backgrounds, go for it. A professional template is clean and simple.
Even if I liked so much these resources I agree with Nikki that people who need professional PowerPoint templates won’t be able to do much with these. However, I don’t feel you’d need to spend money purchasing costly templates. Instead I’d suggest to take a look at http://slidehunter.com that is a free resource to download PowerPoint templates and diagrams. Most of them can be used in business presentations as well, and are free.
Another good resource to share presentations online is http://slideonline.com it is an alternative to other sharing websites like AuthorStream or SlideShare but with no advertising.
for simple yet relevant templates for school powerpoint presentations, office powerpoint, and medical powerpoint presentations I always use FPPT’s free powerpoint templates. While for business powerpoint presentations, I now pick SlideHunter business powerpoint templates for reports and business proposals. Guaranteed free templates for powerpoint that don’t suck!
it is very good for me.for my powerpoint school.thank you for your web
Tremendous! Free templates that don’t suck – awesome! 🙂 Once you find that template, then it’s time to design and write content like a rock star. Don’t forget that your prospect wants to talk about themselves, not you. Don’t fill the presentation with stuff about you!
thanks for sharing!
Thank you for these PowerPoint template resources. Actually you have other several alternatives that worth a look. Google it, and I am pretty sure you could find everything you need for free to help you. http://www.presentationgo.com is definitely a good starting point…
