Fit images into slides

## slidefit

Fit images into slides. slidefit is a command (callable from a terminal) to fit (a lot of) images into a deck of slides. A template deck of slides can be used to base the fitting on.

python-pptx library is used to do the zipped xml hacking and the file format typically named with the extension .pptx is what is supported.

## Installation

One could just copy the file slidefit.py and put it somewhere in the PATH and manually install the dependencies python-pptx and docopt, but otherwise those standard methods should do,

Typical install:

pip install slidefit

Install from cloned repo:

pip install .

After the standard way of installation, slidefit should be available as a command:

slidefit --help

slidefit was written in python and therefore python is required.

## Examples

• Example1 One image per slide as big as possible (7 images, 7 slides)

Assuming 7 images is required:

slidefit img0[1-7].png

Produced slides are saved with a default name (slidefit-output.pptx). Use -o to name it something different:

slidefit -o example1.pptx img0[1-7].png

Existing files are not over-written.

• Example2 Three images per slide in a row (7 images, 3 slides)

Use the --matrix option (-m 1,3) to specify layout as rows,cols:

slidefit -m 1,3 -o example2.pptx img0[1-7].png
• Example3 Three images per slide in one column on the left side

Use the --hspace (-x) to reserve some horizontal space on the left and/or right side as left,right:

slidefit -m 3,1 -x 5,80 -o example3.pptx img0[1-7].png

The space is given as a percentage of available space.

• Example4 Template with a title slide and 3 more slides with headings

Use the --template option to specify a template slide deck. Put 4 images in a row on each slide but not the first:

slidefit -t resources/pen-slides.pptx -m 1,4 -y 20,10 -p 2-4 -o example4.pptx img*.png

The --pages option (-p) is used to specify what pages to put images on.

• Example5 Template as above, use different layout on slides

For example a matrix 2,2 squeezed to the right on pages 2 and 4 and a matrix 1,3 on page 3. More than one pass is required to have different layouts on slides:

slidefit -t resources/pen-slides.pptx -m 2,2 -x 65,5 -y 20,10 -p 2,4 -o tmp.pptx img0[1-4].png img0[8-9].png img1[0-1].png
slidefit -t tmp.pptx -m 1,3 -y 20,10 -p 3 -o example5.pptx img0[5-7].png
rm tmp.pptx

Other than adding images to slides, slidefit is not supposed to do anything with the slides. A blank slide layout is chosen when no template is given.

Use the --help option to see help.
