New Presentation Template Gallery
With its integrated Creative Commons image search, one-touch formatting, and streamlined layout options, Haiku Deck already saves you ridiculous amounts of time. The brand-new presentation template gallery jump-starts your creative process even more — now it’s easy to save a template to your account and edit it, instead of starting from scratch.
Browse the Presentation Template Collection
Hey! There’s something new on the Gallery page.
Click the Presentation Templates tab to view templates
It’s a snap to put one of these killer templates to work for you! Simply hover over a deck and click COPY. The deck will be saved to your My Decks page, where you can easily open it for editing to make it your own.

Working With Templates
For each template, we’ve blocked out suggested slides to give your Haiku Deck structure, but we’ve also made it really easy to add, copy, delete, or rearrange your slides. We’ve also made sure that changing the layouts and formatting your slides will remain simple.
And if you’re more of a visual learner, we’ve created a helpful video that teaches you how to arrange your text, change the font and text color, and more, here.
Selecting a Theme
We’ve selected a theme to match the mood of that specific deck, but you can choose any theme you’d like to use. Learn more about selecting themes here.
If you’d like to see a preview, and samples, of all 20 themes, check out A Field Guide to Haiku Deck’s Free Themes.
You are free to use the images that we’ve selected, but of course you can also search for other free Creative Commons images or import your own images.
If the deck uses a logo slide, you’ll want to add your own logo to the cover slide, and use your own brand colors. You can learn more about these two features here.
Once you’ve finished editing and the deck, you’re probably going to want to share your deck. We recommend doing this straight from Edit Mode so that you can put these finishing touches to your deck:
- Retitle the deck to reflect your changes.
- These decks will be PUBLIC by default. If you do not wish for your deck to be public, make sure you update your privacy settings.
- Update the deck’s description. You can do this by clicking on the Settings gear at the top right corner in the editor (in the web app), or by tapping the Share button (on the iPad app).
- Select a category for your deck.
- Choose whether or not you would like others to be able to copy your deck, just like you did with the template. Learn more about that here.
