Showcase slides are available in the three most popular aspect ratios: 4:3, 16:9, and 3:2.
This means your designs will look great across a number of devices without needing to be amended for each one.
When you create slides for a new presentation, you want to pick the aspect ratio that you think will be in the hands of most of your users. These users will have a pixel-perfect fit with your showcase designs taking up their entire screen.
If a user views your showcase on a device with a different aspect ratio, they’ll still have a pixel-perfect experience (as in, it won’t stretch or distort) but they’ll have some black space around the edges. This is called 'letterboxing' if you're up with the lingo.
- If you've got a lot of iPad users, start with our 4:3 template and design your slides at 2048 x 1536 pixels.
- If your users are mostly going to use Showcase on popular Android devices, iPhones, via our Chrome app, or on early Windows devices, use our 16:9 template and design your slides at 2048 x 1152 pixels.
- If your users are a fan of late-model Windows devices like the Surface Pro 3, use our 3:2 template and design your slides at 2048 x 1365 pixels.
