This export option will upload your slides from Figma to the Pitchdeck web app, automatically generating a URL and password that will allow you to present your slides online using your web browser; complete with your animations, GIF/video embeds and clickable links, and lots of other neat features.
To use this option, click the Export Presentation button in the Pitchdeck toolbar, then ensure the Pitchdeck Presentation (Web URL) option is selected as the presentation export format. Once you’ve configured your export settings, you can click the Upload Web Presentation button to begin uploading your slides.
Using Retina @2x Images
Enabling the 2x Retina Images toggle option will automatically export any JPG and PNG images at retina (@2x) resolution. This will give you sharper looking images in your presentation, but will also increase the file sizes of any JPG and PNG images.
Enabling the Compress Images toggle option will compress any JPG and PNG images used in your presentation.
Downsizing your Figma layer fills
Enabling the Downsize Large Figma Image Fills toggle will automatically resize (and lightly compress) any Figma image fills on your layers to their actual layer size. This is useful if you’ve originally imported high resolution images to your Figma file, but then shrunk the layer dimensions down to be much smaller (with the original large image file still being used).
One common case of this would be adding a large image from Unsplash (or another stock photo site/plugin), the resizing that layer to be used as a much smaller “card” or “avatar” image. This can cause the performance of your Figma file to slow down and potentially crash when exporting these layers via the Pitchdeck export options; so using this feature will help save file size and improve page performance in your Figma file.
Copying your presentation URL and password
Once the upload has completed, you’ll be able to copy the secure URL and password to view your presentation in the browser, using the Pitchdeck web app.
Using a passwordless URL (auto login)
If you don’t want to use a URL/password combo for your presentation, you can copy the Passwordless URL (Auto Login) link, which will automatically log you in upon visiting the page in your browser.
Changing your Pitchdeck URL password
By default, the Pitchdeck plugin generates a secure random password for you, but if you would like to change this to a custom password of your own, you can do this by enabling the I want to change the URL password toggle in the upload settings panel, then entering your new password in the input field (a minimum 6 characters is required) and clicking the Set Password button, which will update the password for your Pitchdeck URL for this Figma page.
Deleting your uploaded presentation URL
You can delete your uploaded presentation URL that you’ve generated using the Pitchdeck plugin by clicking the Export Presentation button in the Pitchdeck plugin toolbar, then enabling the toggle option: I would like to delete the active URL; enabling this toggle will allow you to click the Delete Presentation URL button.
You will see a confirmation message letting you know that the presentation URL was deleted.
