Take your presentations to the next level with Prezi. In about two minutes, you’ll learn how you can start creating a prezi, from the first click to present!
Get Started with Prezi
This is a very exciting moment, you’re about to create your first prezi. If you haven’t already, check out our video tutorial on creating your first prezi. Alternatively, you can watch the video below for a quick overview, or continue looking through the information to get some more hints and tips on creating your first zooming masterpiece.
Start from a template
When you create a prezi, you can choose from a number of reusable templates or a blank canvas. When you decide to use a template, you can edit everything you see on the canvas just as if you were creating your own prezi, including copying and pasting pre-made content from other prezis or applications. Click here for more information on templates.
Navigate the canvas
Getting around your prezi canvas couldn’t be easier.
Zooming around: This is a key feature of Prezi, so naturally we made it simple. You can zoom in and out by using your mouse’s scroll wheel or by clicking the + and – symbols on the right hand side of your screen.
Panning: To move your prezi canvas left, right, up, or down, hold down the left button of your mouse and then move in the direction you want to go.
To take a step back and get an overview of everything you’ve added so far (both in Edit and Present mode), you can use the Home button on the right hand side of your screen (you can find it just above the zoom + and – buttons). Clicking the Home button before you start making a prezi will also ensure that you’re starting from the right place. Click here for more details on navigating your prezi’s canvas.

Get to know the Transformation Tool
In Prezi, the Transformation Tool is your best friend. Once you add anything to your canvas, click on it once to bring up the Transformation Tool. Now you can move, size, and rotate your content any way you like. If you add a frame to your prezi, you can click on it once to bring up the Transformation Tool and move, scale, or rotate everything inside. Click here to learn more about the transformation tool.
Frame your content
Frames are a signature part of Prezi and a great way to manage your content. Frames work like slides and can be used to group your ideas. Use frames to create a placeholder in your prezi and then add content to them. Frames come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and you can change the color of them as well as their size and position. The other great thing about frames is that once you place one on your prezi canvas, you can move, size, and rotate it, and all the content within your frame will move, size, and rotate too.
Customize your prezi:
Use the customize sidebar to set the colors and fonts of your prezi.
You can also create branded Prezi themes by adding your exact company colors to the wizard. Paying users (Pro, EDU Pro, Enjoy, and EDU Enjoy license holders) can even add their own logo to a customized theme.
Click here for more on themes.
Prezi has created both single and multi-frame layouts ready for you to drag and drop right onto your canvas. Just click ‘Insert‘ from the top menu and then make your selection. Click here for more information on inserting layouts.
Add symbols and shapes
Click ‘Insert’ and then select the ‘Symbols and shapes’ icon at the top of the screen to add shapes, lines, arrows, and more to your prezi.
Insert rectangles, circles, and triangles to frame your content. Alternatively, add symbols from a huge library or purpose designed drawings to further enhance your prezi.
Click here for more on symbols and shapes.
Add URLs to your prezi
To put live links into your prezi, copy and paste the desired URL into a text box. Then click away from the text box and your link will become active (you will see it automatically underline).
Click here for more on hyperlinks.
Path: navigate and rearrange with the Path sidebar
When presenting your ideas, it helps to have a clear narrative that takes your audience through your prezi. With the Left Sidebar, you can create a journey from one idea to the next. Edit your path and its points in Edit mode and take your audience along that path in Present mode.
To set your path, click the ‘Edit Path’ on the left-hand side of screen. Then click on the objects in your prezi canvas in the order you wish them to appear.
You can also use the sidebar to rearrange and delete path points or to zoom to a specific path point.

Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc. (CSBI:PK), launched the first global Shelby GT muscle car, which is based on the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang GT. One of the most popular cars in Shelby history the 627 HP 2015 Shelby GT was unveiled today at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction in Ford Motor Company’s booth. Shelby is now taking orders with delivery of cars planned for the beginning of the second quarter of 2015.
“This 2015 Shelby GT incorporates all of the engineering lessons we’ve learned building high performance vehicles over the past 50 years,” said Joe Conway, co-CEO of Carroll Shelby International and CEO of Shelby American “With the international distribution of the current Ford Mustang, we worked closely with our partners to develop a car that can be offered in both North America and overseas. It’s the first Shelby muscle car in our history designed from day one to be a truly global vehicle.”
Ferrari has unveiled the new SF15-T 2015 Formula 1 car that it hopes will get it back in the hunt for victories with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen this season.
After a disappointing 2014 campaign that has prompted a major management and staffing overhaul, the team is determined that the changes it has made will help move it back up the grid.

The James Allison-designed car features a long protruding nose and an aggressive sidepod concept.
But key to Ferrari’s hopes will be what is underneath the skin, with the Italian team’s power unit having been one the weak points of its 2014 season.
The team has undertaken a comprehensive overhaul of its engine in the hope of closing the gap on the benchmark Mercedes.
As well as new management, Ferrari has a change on the driver front too with Vettel lining up alongside Raikkonen this year.
Vettel is due to give the car its first official run at Jerez in Spain on Sunday, when F1’s first pre-season test starts.
“It’s faster, smarter, and frankly bigger than anything we’ve done before – and it’s uniquely digital, built for a global web audience, and designed to deliver the right news at the right time,” Topolsky said.
Justin Smith, chief executive of Bloomberg Media, added: “Over the last 20 years, the global business landscape has changed at lightning speed, while traditional business media, in its presentation, utility, and design, has largely failed to keep up.”
Bloomberg’s new site aims to bring together content from the media company’s digital, print, television, radio and live event operations.
Bloomberg has removed the option to comment on its stories after a relaunch of its flagship business website.
Bloomberg Business – the new home for all content from bloomberg.com and businessweek.com – was given a “soft” launch on Tuesday night, with no facility to comment on published articles.
A spokeswoman for Bloomberg declined to comment on the removal of comments, but it is understood the company believes the conversation about its content is better served on social media rather than on its own platform.
It is understood the impact of switching off comments will be monitored to see if it should be made policy.
Joshua Topolsky, chief digital content officer at Bloomberg Media, said the redesigned site was “a reinvention of how we bring our news to the world”.

The Pew Charitable Trusts launched groundbreaking technology that will help authorities monitor, detect, and respond to illicit fishing activity across the world’s oceans. Project Eyes on the Seas, as the system is known, furthers a long-term effort by Pew to dramatically reduce illegal or “pirate” fishing.
