Free icons, photos & illustrations will help you to get top-notch graphics without googling.

Use PearDeck to ask multiple-choice questions, embed external websites, or even add an audio file for your slides.

With Magic Slides, enter your topic, the number of slides you want, any reference text if you wish — and here you go! The tool generates a rough presentation with images. 

LucidChart lets you make them all on Google Slides with its add-on, no external exporting is required.

Extensis Fonts has over 1400 fonts you can sort in multiple ways — alphabetically, by popularity, by trending, and by date.
