Add Presenters in Adobe Presenter

Learn how to add presenters in Adobe Presenter.

Every presentation created has an intended presenter, who delivers the presentation. In Adobe Presenter you can assign a single presenter to all slides in a presentation, or assign different presenters to individual slides. You can not only assign presenter(s), but can also add detailed information about presenters such as the name, a photograph, their job title, a short biographical notes, a company logo, and also contact information. You don't have to fill in all fields. Adding a presenter will make your presentation more credible.
