How to Make Prezi Templates with Prezi Reusables Option

In Prezi there is a concept of reusable Prezi presentation that let you share your ideas with the Prezi community. If you are familiar with Microsoft PowerPoint you may find this very close to the idea of PowerPoint templates. Making an analogy, in Prezi universe designs that you can share with other people are known as “Reusables” Prezis.


Making your Prezis reusable let other users to open the presentation and make a copy in order to reuse your design and data elements. Once a copy is made, the new presentation owner can edit the content without affecting your original Prezi design. Actually it works as a Prezi template.

PowerPoint Templates = Prezi Reusables

Sharing the Prezi designs and making Prezis ready for reuse helps others get started with Prezi and share your ideas and creativity with the Prezi community. This way you can share Prezi assets, animations, sound effect and design elements that you added previously to a Prezi presentation. Your original prezi will always remain untouched but if it is marked as Reusable then other users can make copies of it and adapt the copied presentation with their own content.

To make a Prezi presentation ready for reuse you need to:

  1. Login to Prezi and go to Prezi Library
  2. Click in the Prezi presentation that you want to make reusable or distribute as a Prezi template.
  3. Click the Share button below the Prezi viewer.
  4. Click the checkbox “Allow public reuse and help spread ideas”.

This checkbox let you make reusable Prezis in a way that other users can view it and make copies and use it as a separate Prezi.

However, using the Prezi Desktop tool for Windows and saving your presentations as .pez you can create Prezi presentations that can be easily distributed and customizable by other people, or what we call: Prezi templates.

Here we will show you how to save a Prezi presentation as an editable template.

First of all, you’d need to download and install Prezi Desktop for Windows. Then, open the Prezi editor and start editing your presentation.


Make sure to add text and image placeholders and when you are done, save the presentation by clicking File -> Save As and then enter a name. As soon as you click Save button in the Save dialog box, the Prezi presentation design will be saved as a .pez file.

Now you can distribute the .pez file and work on it as it is a template.
