LibreOffice Impress is the presentation component of the LibreOffice Suite. It is the equivalent of Microsoft PowerPoint in Microsoft Suite and has a number of unique features, including a system which automatically defines series of graphs, based on information available to the user . It is a free and open source software so it can be copied, re-used and distributed free of cost.

In Impress, creating and editing slides is very versatile thanks to different editing and view modes: Normal (for general editing), Outline (for organizing and outlining your text content), Notes (for viewing and editing the notes attached to a slide), Handout (for producing paper-based material), and Slide Sorter (for a thumbnail sheet view that lets you quickly locate and order your slides). You can create slides that contain many different elements, including text, bulleted and numbered lists, tables, charts, and a wide range of graphic objects such as clipart, drawings and photographs.
