We have had such a strong response to our article about Open Office Impress that we have decided to convert all of our most popular PowerPoint templates across to Open Office Impress.

  8. “Please note that these free Open Office Impress templates are property of Presentation Helper and cannot be resold or displayed on the web without permission.”

    Then those templates are not really free. Those are proprietary even if you can freely download those. You are abusing and twisting the word free here.

    There is a diference between free and open source. These templates are free for people to use in their own presentations and can be downloaded at no charge.

    You will find plenty of sites that wwill charge you $24 for similar templates.

    We have put a lot of work into developing the templates on this site. We’ve had a couple of people who have taken our templates and passed them off as their own work – and that is not fair.

    Luckily we have a good community of users who are happy to point out where they see our templates displayed.

  10. How do you install?
    Whenever I try it comes up with:
    The application cannot be started,
    The configuration service is not available,
    Start the setup application to repair the instillation from the CD or the folder containing the instillation packages.

  11. Are you able to OpenOffice? If so then you should be able to open these templates by simply using the “File Open” command .

    admin 16 Oct at 4:25 pm
  12. Thanks a lot, I loved the Bluewaves template.
    I’d like to know what license theses files are releaseds. Are them Creative Commons?

    Silveira Neto 21 Nov at 2:47 pm
  13. Thanks Silveria

    Glad you liked them.

    The templates are not under creative commons.

    They are free to use in personal and business presentations, but not to be sold on, or be redistributed in any way.

    hope that helps

  14. I can open the file, but how do I save it as a template and apply to existing presentations?

    James 19 Feb at 12:42 pm
  15. How do you save to “My Templates” inOpenOffice?

    James 19 Feb at 12:46 pm
  16. Thanks so much for the free Impress templates. They downloaded and installed seamlessly. It is also very nice that they are complete, professional looking and atractive presentations (as opposed to some fuzzy screenshot type slide with no examples of title page, bullet page, etc.). Very helpful. Thanks again.

    Karen G. 27 Feb at 2:11 am
  17. great templates! Just download the TEMPLATE (otp) (not the impress file – its not a template) and unzip it to your home/user/.openoffice/usr/templates folder. Then open Impress and click on “Master Pages” under the tasks pane and it should show up. Again, thanks for the wonder resource!

  20. Where do you pu the template and presentation in openoffice impress. show me step by step.

    Max 4 Jun at 11:08 pm
  21. Max – The easiest way is just to open the file (File > Open) and then add in some changes and save it in My Documents with a new file name. You could also put it into the same location as the other OpenOffice templates, but that is more complicated.

    admin 6 Jun at 5:37 pm
  22. I love it.

    Ivan 7 Jun at 10:24 pm
  23. Excellent resources, really! Thanks a lot.

    There is a diference between free and open source. These templates are free for people to use in their own presentations and can be downloaded at no charge.”

    The templates might be gratis but they aren’t free as in free software. The GNU General Public License and the Lesser GNU General Public License under which Open Office is licensed is not an “open source” license it is a “free software” license…read the license…you will not see the words “open source” anywhere in the license.

    “Free software” has nothing to do with money it has to do with the rights you have as a computer user.

  25. Free Software, Freeware or Open Source?
    Dear old Wikipedia help us…

    Slick and professional

  27. What is an .odp file? What is an .odt file? What is an .sti file? What is the difference? Which one should I download? What directory should I put it in? Or do they need to be installed? Why is there no info on these simple things on this page? Without such info the files are useless. Sheesh…

    Mobius 24 Sep at 9:14 pm
  28. awesome templates. thank you so much for this contribution

    joeb 27 Sep at 4:36 pm
  29. Hmmm I downloaded the template files, imported them as the OO help said. They showed up in the Available for use pane, under Master pages but icons had no picture and did nothing to pages I tried to apply them to.

    Obviously I’m to stupid to use them. I agree with one of the previous posters without instructions on how to install them they are useless to idiots like myself.

  30. *Windows Installation*

    I was having some problems too, but finally figured it out. Unzip the files, and place them in the templates folder (which was empty on my new install). In XP, it is found at:
    /Documents and Settings/(user)/Application Data/

    Worked fine from here.

  37. i would like to use it for a college course
    and i will not reuse them as if they are mine design i just don’t like the options that power point 2007 gives to use

    victoria christopher 2 Mar at 10:43 pm
  38. Without CLEAR installation instructions, these are next to useless. Good templates though just to open and view with Impress. I’m glad i’m not the only one who can’t seem to install them and I thought I knew what I was doing.

  45. I will be using these as I prepare presentations (using Impress) for a home-school co-op class. Thank you for making these available.

    A. Meyer 11 Aug at 8:22 pm
  46. “I can get the corporate one to open but cannot figure out how to edit where it says company logo”

    1. go to “file” and then “open” so that you have the template opened and on screen

    2. go to “view” -> “Master” -> “Slide Master” and the opened template will change so that the sections are outlined.

    3. delete the “company logo” box that was added by the developer.

    4. go to “insert” -> “picture” -> “from file” and find your logo file on your hard drive.

    JPOSH 12 Feb at 12:58 am
  58. Ok, like everyone else I was lost as to how to use these templates and none of the other comments were working. Here’s how I finally got it to work. Save the otp file somewhere on your computer, it’s not too important where. Open Impress and click file->templates->organize. Then right click on “Presentation Backgrounds” and hit import. Find wherever you saved your template you just downloaded and there you go. Hope this helps you all.
