Given below is the explanation of above stated code snippet.

SlidesApi slidesApi = new SlidesApi(clientID, clientSecret);

Create an object of SlidesApi class while passing the client credentials as arguments.

var responseStream = slidesApi.DownloadPresentation(inputPPT, ExportFormat.Svg, null);

Call the REST API to convert PowerPoint slides to SVG format. The output is returned as stream instance.

using var pdfStream = File.Create("transformed.zip");

Save all the resultant SVG images to local drive as a single zip archive.

In order to convert selected slides, please specify their indexes as an argument to DownloadPresentation(…) method. Please take a look over the following code line, where only 1st and 5th slides are being converted.

var responseStream = slidesApi.DownloadPresentation(inputPPT, ExportFormat.Svg, null, null, null, null, null, new List<int> {1,5});

The PowerPoint presentation used in the above example can be easily downloaded from Prismatic design.

How to Convert PPTX to SVG using cURL Commands

Another approach for converting PowerPoint (PPTX) to SVG is by utilizing cURL commands in conjunction with Aspose.Slides Cloud API. Aspose.Slides Cloud provides a RESTful API that allows you to interact with its services using HTTP requests. By crafting the appropriate cURL commands, you can easily integrate the conversion functionality into your workflows or scripts.

The advantage of using cURL commands is their versatility and compatibility with various programming languages and platforms. You can incorporate the commands into your existing automation scripts, build custom workflows, or interact with the API directly from the command line.

Now, in order to get started with this approach, please execute the following command to generate an accessToken based on your client credentials.

curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/connect/token" \
 -X POST \
 -d "grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=ee170169-ca49-49a4-87b7-0e2ff815ea6e&client_secret=7f098199230fc5f2175d494d48f2077c" \
 -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
 -H "Accept: application/json"

Once the JWT access token has been generated, please execute the following command to convert PowerPoint to SVG online.

curl -v "https://api.aspose.cloud/v3.0/slides/{sourcePPTX}/Svg" \
-H  "accept: multipart/form-data" \
-H  "authorization: Bearer {accessToken}" \
-H  "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d "{}" 
-o "{resultantSVG}"

Replace {sourcePPTX} with the name of PowerPoint available in cloud storage, {accessToken} with JWT access token and, {resultantSVG} with the name of the .zip archive to contain converted SVG images.


In conclusion, converting PowerPoint to SVG is a valuable capability that allows you to unlock the potential of your presentations in various ways. Whether you need to display PowerPoint content on the web, embed it in scalable vector graphics, or utilize it in other applications that support SVG format, the conversion process is made easier with the help of tools like the Aspose.Slides Cloud SDK for .NET and cURL commands.

Nevertheless, with Aspose.Slides Cloud SDK for .NET, you can seamlessly integrate the conversion functionality into your .NET applications, taking advantage of the rich features and capabilities provided by the SDK. On the other hand, cURL commands offer flexibility and compatibility, allowing you to interact with the Aspose.Slides Cloud API from different programming languages and platforms. Start leveraging this powerful technology and unleash the potential of your presentations in the SVG format today.
