"PowerPoint is robust and Google Presentations is very sweet for collaboration, but some of us simply crave beautiful new design options for our presentations and publications.

Here are four worthy options, and another one about to be born."

Do you like trying new tools, specifically ones designed for presentations and publishing? This post, by Joyce Valenza, explores five tools that will provide a range of options for you to consider.

* Canva allows you to create slides, posters, flyers, presentations, business cards and more. With hundreds of fonts, one million images, photo editing, the ability to collaborate and more you may want to head over to Canva and create an account...and it is free!

* LucidPress comes from the same folks that created LucidChart, and it is free for educators (and your school can also get accounts for students). This is a robust a robust publishing tool that has been getting rave reviews...definitely worth checking out. If you have questions, check out their tutorials.

* emaze is a new tool out in beta. The website states that you can choose a template and quickly create a presentation. Feature include the ability to translate text, HTML5 (so it should run on any browser), and multi-device accessible.

*Haiku Deck was originally designed for the iPad but is now has a web based version. The folks who designed this were looking for an application that would allow them to create a "killer pitch deck" and when they could not find one they chose to create one...thus Haiku Deck.

* Powtoon Slides is due out later this week. Based on a sneak peek you will find lots of slide templates, infographic style that includes animated icons that you can use on graphs and charts, a photoshow style (with over 3 million royalty free photos available), and an animated style. This list does not include all features but it may make you want to head over to Powtoon and check it out!

More information on these tools is available in the post.
