Copy and Paste Images into Prezi from other sources

  • Idea
  • Updated 2 weeks ago
  • Under Consideration
It would be help make working on Prezi more efficient if we could copy and paste images into Prezi from other sources instead of having to upload it. Kinda like how we can do it with Powerpoint.

ya i need this feature too especially when a presentation has many graphs (made in excel or prism) ... its nightmarish to save each as a single image and insert it in prezi ....

I agree....especially when trying to have my 4th grade students use Prezi in the classroom. Downloading and uploading the images gets quite frustrating!

The single BIGGEST LIMITATION of Prezi is the inability to paste images and videos.

For my power-points I'm always using this kind of images with "quick screen capture"
don't have time to save them first and upload them afterwards...

Hi Edward

I'm sorry but no news yet. When there will be, I will post it here.

This is the main barrier to using prezi. With powerpoint I can spontaneously choose to paste a graph or picture from another application.

I believe the functionality exists now, but it's not working for me ... unable to copy/paste from Excel or PowerPoint

Until now nothing from “Lior Paz, Official Rep, replied 1 month ago” , so I’ve my doubts about this. Didn’t try it either....

Quite surprised that a simple "paste" of an image didn't work. I thought I was missing something..

Jef that’s the reason why, and only why, I didn't purchase it. However I'm working (more playing ) on a regular base with an Ipad and there everything is quite working in a similar way...difficult and not user-friendly at all.
Not for gaming, music, reading or surf on the net, but for more professional applications.

In business copy/paste of images is critical... This is a real showstopper for use in any corporate environment. As outlined above, pasting images from Excel (whether they be charts or simply the table itself) into PPT is one of the most common operations used to communicate real data (dashboards, marketing results, etc)

This feature would make the software work buying.. otherwise, it is not really more than a nextgen scrapbooking tool.

Hi people I found a great replacement for Prezi. This tool has copy and past and is completely free.

http://sozi.baierouge.fr/wiki/en:install

Takes some time to get used to but I made some really great presentations with it.

Agreed, I loaded Prezi, realised I would have to spend a couple of hours saving and uploading all my pictures and abandoned the program altogether... I really don't want to go back to PPT!!!

I'm afraid this tool that showed so much promise when I initially signed up for a Pro subscription, will not be receiving any additional subscription revenues from me. The time spent in managing my images swamps the creative benefits I get from Prezi over PPT.

I can't believe I'm going back to PPT!

Aloha Lori (or anyone who is listening) from Prezi.... Is anyone listening from Prezi?? I recently purchased the prezi pro account, and I am deeply saddened that I cannot paste images into my prezi presentation.

This seems like such an easy ubiquitous feature to add to this otherwise SuperFly presentation software.

Please someone, take a few minutes and add this feature!! Before I too follow the ranks and abandon Prezi.

Lets work together!!

They seem to have given up this possibility....
Lior Paz mentioned one year ago that it was a great idea but nothing since then. They fell asleep or forgot the whole thing ?????
I wouldn’t advice NOT to buy it before this becomes all right. Because importing images is far too difficult when you are working on a presentation.
Still working with the good old PowerPoint....till the end of days ?

wow.... i just spent $60 a few hours ago to buy this and am already wondering how to get my money back. In my business I live and die by the content in my technical sales presentations. If I can't do a simple cut and paste of an image from a doc or a ppt then this is useless to me. The amount of time i'd waste saving those things I already have as files is a showstopper for me.

back to ppt I guess. what a shame. such a simple thing.

has anyone else here inquired about refunds??

Hi Dewey

Here are some suggestions about how to import media into your prezi:

Insert a file by dragging it into the prezi (only chrome and firefox)
Insert a powerpoint into prezi (in the prezi editor: click on insert -> ppt) This let you insert the whole powerpoint or parts of it into your prezi.

on PreziDesktop3 you can also copy paste images from files docs ppts etc.

I hope this helps
Lior

update:
Sorry, due to a problem with enabling this feature on browsers we had to discontinue it. It does work on the Desktop version though.

Hello To All,

I'm so frustrated....
I try to copy and past images (from screen) on my presentations but with Prezi Desktop but this operation is not working. If they require to save all the images on JPG on specific directory in this case I have no usage of this tool. Is only for the people working on low productivity rate....I need a toll where I can copy and paste fast and easy...
If you want to build a training document with images from various sources (not only files) I need 10 years to do separate file savings in specific directory

If someone has a solution for me I will be happy and I will buy the product...
If not I have to find out other solutions....

And no phone asssistance for users.....
