Frequently Asked Questions
How can I use the template?
For Google Slides: Each template contains a preview where you can see all the slides and resources included. Click on “Download this template” and then on “Google Slides” to download this presentation for Google Slides. If you click on “Copy the presentation”, it will be saved on your Google Drive, where you can customize it and use it whenever you want.
For PowerPoint: Click on “Download this template” and then on “PowerPoint”. This is located next to the template preview. The template will be saved on your computer, where you will be able to customize it.
Am I free to use the templates?
You are free to use our templates for both personal and commercial purposes.
You are not allowed to:
- Sublicense, sell or rent any Slidesgo Content (or a modified version of it)
- Distribute Slidesgo Content unless it has been expressly authorized by Slidesgo
- Include Slidesgo Content in an online or offline database or file
- Offer Slidesgo templates (or modified versions of Slidesgo templates) for download
- Acquire the copyright of any Slidesgo Content
In case you have a subscription, or if you need more information, please read our Terms & Conditions.
How to attribute?
If you are a free user, you must attribute Slidesgo by keeping the slide where the credits appear.
Is everything in the template editable?
Most of the elements are editable to allow our users to customize the template as much as possible. However, there might be a resource that belongs to the design itself, and thus it cannot be modified from the slide. In such cases, you will find the resource in the master slides.
The master slides are the slides that contain the layout, the format and the structure of the elements in every slide of the presentation. If you want to edit a master slide in Google Slides, go to Slide → Edit master. To do this in PowerPoint, go to View → Slide Master.
You will see two types in the editor. In the first slide, called “Master”, you can set the paragraph style, that is, which fonts, sizes and colors you are going to use in the presentation (only two text boxes appear: a title and a body text). Besides, you will be able to add or change other fixed elements that will appear throughout all your presentation: your logo, the page numbers, the background color, the header, etc.
You will also find other slides called “Layouts”, which contain the design and the structure of the elements of each slide within your presentation.
I am interested in some graphic resources for presentations. Do you have any kind of separate content available?
Yes, we do! All our templates come with many different resources, such as editable icons, infographics and maps. We even have a section dedicated to infographics, where you will find many templates with different designs, from timelines and calendars to organizational charts and mind maps. All of them are editable and can be used in Google Slides, PowerPoint and Keynote presentations.
We also have Slidesgo School, a special place where we post tips on how to create impactful presentations, and tutorials on how to work with Google Slides and PowerPoint. If you have little experience with these programs, Slidesgo can help you get started in no time.
The fonts do not look the same in PowerPoint. Why?
Google Slides gets the fonts directly from Google Fonts, so you do not need to download them. However, if you use the template in PowerPoint, you might need to install the fonts on your computer.
If you want to avoid issues related to the typography used in the template, please download all the available styles. To apply the changes, close the presentation and open it again.
To learn how to install fonts from Google Fonts, please read “Can I use my own fonts in the template?”.
Do I need to request access to use the template in Google Slides?
Our system automatically gives you access to the template. However, some users with Google Accounts set up by schools or companies might encounter problems related to permissions when trying to make a copy of our templates. Here are some solutions you can try if you experience this issue:
- Switch to your personal Google Account.
- Ask your school or company administrator to whitelist https://slidesgo.com.
- Download the template as a PowerPoint file and then convert it to Google Slides. For more information, please refer to the “How to Convert Presentations from PowerPoint to Google Slides” tutorial.
If you still need help, please contact us and we will help you solve this issue.
Can I choose the main color for the template before downloading it?
Some of our templates come with color variants, which means they are available in different palettes. These are identifiable by the presence of some little circles at the bottom of their thumbnails. If you click on these circles, you will be able to see the current slide adapted to the selected variant.
When selecting one of our templates with color variants, you will notice a section called “Themes” on the right-hand side of the screen. Likewise, if you click on the circles below, you will be able to see a preview of the template adapted to the chosen palette. Once you have selected the one you want, just click “Use a Google Slides Theme” or “Download a PowerPoint Template” to get the template fully adapted to this new main color.
I downloaded one of your templates from your “Infographics” section. How can I add these infographics into my presentation?
We have some templates dedicated to infographics, containing a lot of slides with different designs for this kind of diagrams. These can be edited just like you would edit any other vector resource.
To add any of these infographics to your presentation, just select it in its entirety and copy it. Then, go to your presentation, select the slide where you want to add the diagram and paste it.
If you are using Google Slides, right after pasting, you will see a little icon on the bottom right corner. If you click on it, it will display two options: Match destination formatting and Keep source formatting. Choosing the former will adapt the colors and the fonts to those of the current theme, whereas choosing the latter will keep the design intact.
If you are using PowerPoint, please note that the colors and the fonts will be adapted to the current theme automatically, so any further changes required must be made manually.
If I use one of the infographics included in your templates in a presentation that has not been created by using one of Slidesgo’s templates, do I still have to credit you?
Yes. If you are a free user, in order to use our infographics in a presentation, you must attribute their design to Slidesgo and include credits somewhere in your slides.
How can I register on Slidesgo?

What can I do to have unlimited* downloads?
If you are an unregistered user, you will have a limit of 2 downloads. You can increase this limit to 5 free templates per month if you register an account.
In order to have unlimited downloads*, you need a premium subscription. For more information, https://slidesgo.com/pricing
Please note that, for both registered and users with a subscription, a download will not count towards the limit in the following cases:
- If you download a template that you have already downloaded during the same month
- If you download a template for PowerPoint that you have already downloaded before for Google Slides, or vice versa
- If you download a color variant of a template that you have already downloaded before
The download limit will reset 30 days after your registration or your premium subscription purchase.
*For security reasons, Premium users will be limited to 150 downloads per month.
What are the benefits of having a subscription?
With a subscription, you will enjoy the following benefits:
- Get access to over 15,000 Premium, ad-free assets and templates to create without limits
- Bigger discounts for bigger teams, up to 37%
- Add, remove or reassign users as necessary, or leave them unassigned
- Share templates with no need to credit Slidesgo
- Priority support
- Suitable for minors–we comply with the Data Protection Policy for minors and FERPA law
- Up to 1,000 users
What kinds of subscriptions do you have?
We have two interesting plans to suit your needs: Premium and Education. The Premium plan gives you access to over 15,000 Premium ad-free assets and templates, perfect for all kinds of users, from healthcare workers to businesspeople and collaborating teams. And the bigger the team, the bigger the discount!
As for the Education plan, it’s specially conceived for students, schools, teachers, NGOs and other education centers. It has the same benefits as the Premium plan, but with special discounts for education. It's suitable for students of all ages and gives access to many educational ready-to-use resources.
And there’s more! Both plans can be chosen for a monthly or an annual plan. The former is charged per month and the latter is charged in one payment per year. Annual plans usually allow you to save some money compared to twelve consecutive monthly fees.
What are your available payment methods?
Slidesgo currently accepts the following payment methods:
Credit and debit cards: Slidesgo accepts payments by credit and debit cards as long as these are enabled for online payments. Please note that Slidesgo is part of Freepik Company, based in Spain, and our plans are linked to an automatic renewal cycle, therefore international and recurring payments need to be allowed too.
PayPal: payments can be made by PayPal. Please note that on some occasions, and depending on the location, the system may ask you to enter a credit card number, but the charge will still be made to your PayPal account.
Are there any additional charges after purchasing my subscription?
No, only the automatic renewal, as long as you did not cancel that option.
Is payment through your website safe?
Payments with credit/debit cards are done via Stripe, a platform that has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. To accomplish this, they use the best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security.
As for PayPal payments, be advised that PayPal (Europe) S.à r.l. et Cie, S.C.A. is duly licenced as a Luxembourg credit institution in the sense of Article 2 of the law of 5 April 1993 on the financial sector as amended and is under the prudential supervision of the Luxembourg supervisory authority, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier, with registered office in L-1150 Luxembourg.
My credit card has been rejected and I do not know why. What can I do?
This may be due to several reasons. We will mention here the most common ones:
- In case there is an error with your card before the payment:
If the error message “Your card has been declined” appears after entering the details of your card and before completing the payment process, you should contact your bank to confirm that your card is enabled for online payments and/or international (Slidesgo is based in Spain) and recurring (Slidesgo subscriptions work with an automatic renewal system) payments.
If that is the case, you can try again as soon as you have solved this issue with your card.
- The payment has been declined after completing the payment process:
After completing the payment process, the system takes a few minutes to validate everything after checking with the bank. If there is a problem, the payment will be declined and you will receive an email notification. We inform you that Slidesgo does not decline payments; this is something that comes from the bank not accepting the charge.
In these cases, our system will try to process the payment three more times. Since this is an automatic process, it will not be possible to try again manually. For this reason, we recommend that you contact your bank to solve the issue and request that they accept the charge.
In case all attempts fail, our system will automatically cancel the payment request and you will need to purchase a new plan again.
My card has been rejected and my subscription has been canceled. What can I do now?
Whenever there is a problem with the payment for the renewal of your subscription, we will try again up to four more times (for a week). If the payment is still unsuccessful after these attempts, your subscription will be canceled.
You should also check your payment data and update it if needed, as this could be the problem. To do so, access your payment data by going to your profile options and clicking “Subscription”. Make sure that your credit card has not expired and is enabled for online payments, (including international and recurring payments).
If your subscription has been canceled and you want to reactivate it, click the “Reactivate” button that you will find in the “Subscription” section.
Will my subscription be renewed automatically?
Yes. Your subscription plan will renew automatically unless you cancel this option. To cancel the automatic renewal of your plan and avoid future non-desired payments, you must do so from your profile. Click the drop-down arrow, then “Subscription” and, finally, “Cancel subscription”.
How can I request an invoice?
You will find your invoice in the “Subscription” page section of your profile. It will be available between 24 to 48 hours after the payment.
Can I change my billing information after the payment?
Yes, you can edit your billing information so that we can use it for future charges. To do so, access your profile options and click “Subscription”. Then, edit your billing information and then click “Save changes”.
Can I cancel my subscription?
Yes, you can cancel your subscription at any time. Click the drop-down arrow at the top right corner and select “My Subscription”. You will find the “Cancel subscription” option just below your billing information, on the left side of the “Save changes” button. If your subscription started after May 2023, then you will find the button right below the subscriptions price breakdown, on the same page.
Remember that you will remain a premium user until the expiration date of the subscription. This information can be found on your subscription page.
What happens if I cancel my subscription?
You can cancel your subscription at any time, as long as 24 hours have passed after the payment. You will still be able to use our website as a premium user until the last day of your purchased subscription (for example, if you purchased an annual subscription and you cancel it after three months, you will still be a premium user for nine more months and then your subscription will simply not be renewed). Please note that we do not refund the proportional part.
If I cancel my subscription, will I still be able to use the content that I have already downloaded?
Whenever you acquire a subscription, you will see a link to download the license (in PDF format) in your downloads history.
This license allows you to use Slidesgo’s templates without having to credit us, and will remain in effect even after your subscription expires.
Remember that you must keep any license you have downloaded on your computer or storage device so that we can guarantee the correct use of our resources.
Please note that our Premium templates can be downloaded from your download history for as long as your subscription is active.
Can I ask for a refund if I cancel my subscription?
Yes, you can request a refund within 30 days after the payment if you have not downloaded any template from our website.
Can I change my plan?
In case you have purchased a monthly subscription and wish to upgrade it to a yearly plan, you can do so. Click the drop-down arrow at the top right and select “Subscription”. Then, select your plan and click “Change Plan”. Your new yearly plan will be effective as soon as your current monthly plan expires. Also, it will not be charged until after your current monthly plan expires.
Please note that it is not possible to change a yearly plan to a monthly plan. In this case, you must cancel your yearly plan and wait until its active period expires. Then you can purchase a monthly plan.
If you wish to change your Premium plan to an Education plan, you can only make this change after your active subscription period expires. You will also need an account that ends in .edu, .school or .k12, just to name a few. Please contact us if you need further assistance.
Does Slidesgo store my credit card details?
Your credit card details are protected. Only you have access to them. Our payment process is secure and Slidesgo cannot store nor access these details. We only show the last 4 digits of your card so that you can identify the one you used to pay for your subscription.
What happens if I open a dispute with my bank about a Slidesgo payment?
When you open a dispute with your bank about a payment related to Slidesgo, for security reasons, we proceed to disable your subscription and cancel future renewals until the dispute or claim is resolved.
If the dispute is finally resolved in your favor, we will refund the amount and cancel the subscription. Otherwise, the subscription will be re-enabled and will end after the billing cycle that you have paid for has expired. Note that the best practice is to contact us about a refund before filing the dispute claim, as the refund can be resolved much faster.
What is Slidesgo Teams?
Slidesgo Teams is the new Slidesgo group plan that allows you to obtain multiple licenses in a single purchase. You can choose between two types of subscription: Premium and Education. They both include an additional user for free, and with the admin account you can manage users according to your needs: delete accounts, edit passwords and download access data for your team easily.
If you want to get Slidesgo Teams, go here, choose the suscription that better suits your needs, choose the amount of members you want in your team, and start creating! Remember that Education plans are only available for people in the educational field who have a .edu, .school or .k12 email, while Premium plans are designed for people from any field: healthcare, business, marketing… You can learn more about them here: https://slidesgo.com/pricing.
Contact our team so that we can offer you a plan that meets your needs.
How can I purchase a Slidesgo Teams subscription?
To purchase a group plan or Slidesgo Teams subscription, please fill in this form so that we can contact you. After assessing your needs, we will make you a tailor-made offer. If you accept it, we will formalize an agreement and send you a link so that you can finalize your purchase online, just like with any other purchase on Slidesgo.
Remember that the user account with which you finalize the purchase will be the admin user account from which you will be able to manage your licenses!
What are the payment methods accepted for purchasing a Slidesgo Teams subscription?
Currently, we only accept payment by credit card, but we are working to offer you other payment methods in the future. You can find more information about the security of our payments in the FAQs of the purchase.
Does the offer expire?
Yes, we will inform you of the validity period of the offer when we contact you. If you do not complete the purchase within the validity period, the link will expire.
Can I add more licenses to my account?
Yes. To add more licenses, go to “My Team” and click on “Update plan”. When a pop up screen appears, enter the number of seats needed and press the “Confirm and Pay” button.
I am a school and I want to use Slidesgo Teams with my students. Is that possible?
Yes, we have thought especially about teachers and students who want to use Slidesgo and work as a team. Slidesgo offers a special plan for students, schools, teachers and other educational centers. This is an ideal subscription for teachers who want to manage students' accounts from an admin account. Remember that in order to access an Education plan, you must log in with an email ending in .edu, .school or .k12, for example.
How is the privacy of the Teams users managed?
Users can join a team by receiving an invitation email, which will allow them to set up an account and its associated password by themselves. This is best for adults, since it allows them to use their personal/work email, so they can manage their own privacy settings.
On the other hand, users can also join a team by being manually added by the admin. This is best for schools, since the admin is able to generate usernames and passwords, which means the user is not required to enter any personal information.
We would like to clarify that we are compliant with GDPR, COPPA and FERPA laws and do not collect personal data for subsidiary accounts linked to the admin account.
How can the users that I have added to my Slidesgo Teams subscription get access to their accounts?
As admin of the Slidesgo Teams subscription, you will be able to access your account via the usual login button (in the top right corner).
As for the users, if they have been invited via email and used the link provided to set up their accounts by themselves, they can log in normally via the usual login button. On the other hand, any user that you manually added to your team will have to log in via a custom URL for your company. You can find it in your account: go to your user menu (in the top right corner) and you will find the "My team" section. Within this section, under the list of users, you will find the "Access URL" button. This will open a new page that contains a link: that is the one you must send to your users so that they can log in to their premium accounts.
I have already purchased my Slidesgo Teams plan. How can I manage the licenses?
There are two ways:
- Go to your user menu (in the upper right corner) and click on the "My team" option. You will see the "Add users" option, from which you can register the users who will benefit from the premium licenses purchased. Just type in the username you want to create, and we will generate a secure password for them. Next to it, you will find a button in case you want to delete it and an option to download the access data you have created.
- Send the users an invitation via email so that they can set up an account themselves.
If the users to whom I granted licenses in my Slidesgo Teams plan do not have an email associated to them, how can they recover or change their passwords?
Only the admin can change a user's password and resend it to them. To do this, go to your user menu (in the top right corner) and click on "My team". Next to each user you will find an option to reset the password or view the current password.
I am a user who has been granted a license by the admin of a Slidesgo Teams plan. Do I have access to all the Premium features?
Yes, you will be able to access thousands of free and premium download up to 150 templates per month with each user license within the Slidesgo Teams plan.
Can I ask for a refund?
This is not possible. Once the agreement has been formalized and the payment has been made, we do not offer refunds for this type of subscription.
Will my Slidesgo Teams subscription renew automatically?
Yes. Unless you cancel your subscription, it will automatically renew. Please note that we will be in contact with you to monitor your team's needs so that we can reevaluate your subscription each year, regardless of renewal.
How can I add a new slide to my presentation?
There are two ways to add a new slide to your presentation:
Duplicating an already existing slide.
To do so, select the slide that you want to duplicate → right-click → Duplicate slide.
Creating a new slide.
If you are using Google Slides, you can do any of the following:
- Press Ctrl + M (Windows) or Cmd + M (Mac). A new slide will be created with the same design as the last selected slide.
- Right-click on the slides thumbnails → New slide.
- Go to the top bar → Slide → New slide.
If you are using PowerPoint, you can do any of the following:
- Press Ctrl + M (Windows) or Cmd + M (Mac). A new slide will be created with the same design as the last selected slide.
- Right-click on the previous slide → New Slide.
- Go to the top bar → Home → New Slide (if you click on the arrow, you will be able to choose the layout).
If you need more information, please refer to the “How to Add, Duplicate, Move, Delete or Hide Slides in Google Slides” tutorial or the “How to Add, Duplicate, Move, Delete or Hide Slides in PowerPoint” tutorial, depending on the software you’re using.
Remember that you can change the layout of the slide anytime. To learn how, please read "How can I change the layout of a slide?".
How can I change the layout of a slide?
To change the design of an existing slide, you can do any of the following:
- Go to the top bar in Google Slides, drop-down the Layout menu and select the layout that best suits your needs. In PowerPoint, this option is located within the Home tab.
- Right-click on the slide whose layout you want to change → Apply layout (Google Slides) or Layout (PowerPoint), and select the option that best suits your needs.
- In Google Slides, select the slide whose layout you want you change, click on Slide → Apply layout and select the option that best suits your needs.
Can I change the color of the shapes and other elements? How?
If you want to change the color of any of the graphic resources used in the template, select the resource and, in the top bar, click on “Fill color” or “Border color”. If you want to edit the color of only a part of the resource, you can either double-click on it and select only the part that you want to edit, or right-click → Ungroup.
To change the background color, select the slide or master slide that you want to edit, go to the top bar and click on “Background…” (Google Slides), or right-click on the slide → Format Background… (PowerPoint).
In some cases, you might find images that you cannot edit. These are included as PNG, so you can replace them with your own.
If you find resources that cannot be edited from the slide they appear in, you need to access them from the master slide. To learn how to access the master slides, please read “Is everything in the template editable?”.
If I try to select a graphic resource, others are selected too. Why?
Sometimes, the resources are grouped to facilitate working with all of them at the same time, avoiding issues.
If you want to work with any of their elements individually to change the color, separate them from the other elements or even delete them, you need to ungroup first.
To ungroup resources, select the group and press Ctrl + Alt + Shift + G (Google Slides) or Ctrl + Shift + G (PowerPoint).
In Google Slides, if you want to group the elements again, press Ctrl + Alt + G. In PowerPoint, select the elements, right-click → Group → Group.
Can I use my own photos and images in the templates?
Yes. First, delete the photo on the template. Then, go to the top bar, click on Insert → Image and upload the photo you want to use. Once the photo is uploaded, adjust it and then send it back (Ctrl + Shift + Down).
If the image is on the master slide, please read “Is everything in the template editable?” to learn how to access it.
If the image is not on the master slide and you cannot edit it either, the image must have been included as the background. If you want to change the background image, right-click on the slide and choose “Change Background”. There, you can insert any image or photo.
If the image has a certain cropping, you will not be able to keep the cropping in PowerPoint. However, Google Slides allows you to select the image and replace it while keeping the cropping. There are two ways to do so:
- Click on the “Replace image” option from the top bar.
- Right-click on the image → Replace image.
How can I use the icons and other elements?
On the last slides you will find all the resources you are free to use: icons, graphics, maps, etc. To use them, simply choose the one you want, copy it and paste it where needed. Select the icon to change its size and colors.
Please note that graphic elements cannot be part of a text.
What if I need more resources (vectors, photos, icons) for the presentation?
We listed the resources we used for each presentation in the last slides of the template. If you want to download more photos or images for your presentation, visit the Freepik (parent company) website: www.freepik.com.
If you need to add more icons to your presentation, you may use the Flaticon extension for G Suite, which you can download at https://www.flaticon.com/for-google. With this extension, you will have full access to Flaticon’s gallery, being able to download the icons in PNG format, search for others within the same style, and even edit their size and colors without having to close your Google Slides presentation. You will find this extension already pre-installed in our templates.
Where are the fonts and resources used in the design?
The fonts and other resources used in the design are listed on the last pages of the template.
In PowerPoint, the fonts do not look the same as in Google Slides, but I have them installed. Why?
These slight variations might be due to a version mismatch of the font our template uses. This can happen if you got the font from a website other than Google Fonts. It is important that, in order to to keep the design exactly as it appears in Slidesgo, you download the fonts directly from Google Fonts.
Can I use my own fonts in the template?
Only fonts from Google Fonts are available in Google Slides. If you want to include any other font from Google Fonts, select the text and go to Fonts → More fonts… A new panel will open, where you can choose the font you want to use.
In PowerPoint, you can use any font installed on your system, regardless of its source. Remember that every time you change the original font, the layout might be affected and you may need to adjust it again.
Then, click the "Download family" button, located in the upper right corner.
After downloading the font, install it on your computer. To do so, double-click on it and follow the steps. To make this new font appear in PowerPoint, close the program and open it again.
How can I import a template into an existing presentation?
To add a presentation, or a part of it, to another one, copy one slide and paste it in the other presentation. Then, in “Layout”, you will find all the slides from both presentations for you to use.
If you want to replace the theme of your presentation with one from another Google Slides presentation, drop down the Theme menu and click on “Import theme”. Once you have imported the theme, just select it.
Please bear in mind that after replacing the theme with another one in Google Slides, the remaining themes that the template had will be deleted, since there are no slides using those designs.
To do this in PowerPoint, go to the top bar and click on the Design tab. Then, drop down the “Themes” menu, click on “Browse for Themes…” and select the template.
If you need more information, please refer to the “How to Add or Change Themes in Google Slides” tutorial or the “How to Add or Change Themes in PowerPoint” tutorial, depending on the software you’re using.
How can I add a header and/or a footer to the template?
If you want a header and/or a footer to be visible in the entire presentation, create a text box (without any placeholder) and either upload an image or add the element to the Master slide (the first one).
How can I add my own data to the graphs
You will find two types of graphs in our templates:
- Editable graphs, where you can alter the colors to modify the data.
- Graphs linked to Google Sheets. If you click on the graph, you will be able to make a copy of the file, where you can modify the data or even choose a different kind of graph. To include the new graph in your presentation, just copy and paste it into the slide.
If you are using PowerPoint or any other software, after making a copy of the file in Google Sheets, you will need to download it in Excel format by going to File → Save As → Microsoft Excel. You must do this since these programs do not allow pasting graphs from Google Sheets.
How can I change the aspect ratio and at the same time avoid element distortion?
By default, all our templates are designed with an aspect ratio of 16:9. If you need to change the aspect ratio in Google Slides, go to the top bar and click on File → Page setup… Then, in the drop-down menu you can choose the ratio that you want for your presentation.
To do this in PowerPoint, click on the Design tab. Then, go to the Customize panel and drop-down the “Slide Size” menu. You will be able to freely set up the aspect ratio for your presentation.
If the images still get distorted after changing the aspect ratio, the only way to fix everything is to readjust them one by one in the master slides.
If you need more information, please refer to the “How to Change the Slide Size in Google Slides” tutorial or the “How to Change the Slide Size in PowerPoint” tutorial, depending on the software you’re using.
I downloaded a PowerPoint version of a template and when I opened it, it showed a message saying the file is invalid. What should I do?
