Just start with a simple PowerPoint presentation or an outline in Evernote. Haiku Deck Zuru applies expert presentation design principles and artificial intelligence to transform your content into a powerful, beautiful visual presentation.

First, Haiku Deck Zuru analyzes your content to identify the key ideas and optimal slide layouts.

Next, it searches through millions of free, beautiful Creative Commons images for the best ones to illustrate your ideas.

Then, Haiku Deck Zuru analyzes your text and images to determine the optimal text placement and background colors.

The result is a beautiful, mobile-friendly Haiku Deck which you can easily edit, embed in any blog or website, or share via email and social networks. If you prefer, you can also save your presentation as an editable .pptx file.

Haiku Deck Pro members can use Zuru to upload any existing PowerPoint or Keynote presentation in .pptx format. Our team is hard at work to make more formats available, too. The resulting file will be a .pptx that you can re-open in PowerPoint or Keynote for further editing.

And whether you're a Zuru member or not, you can easily create slides from pictures or screenshots from your computer, camera roll, or photo stream; or import images from Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, Flickr, Picasa, Google Drive, or Box.
Haiku Deck searches the Internet for high-quality images that photographers have licensed under Creative Commons, and automatically pulls in the proper attribution.

When you use Haiku Deck Zuru, the app searches through the millions of free, beautiful, Creative Commons images to recommend the best images to bring your words to life, and takes care of the attribution for you automatically. If you’re uploading a presentation with existing graphics, Haiku Deck Zuru gives you the option of retaining them or replacing them with alternatives from a vast library of images.

There are three privacy settings for Haiku Decks: private, restricted, and public.
