What is an ODP file?

Files that contain the .odp file extension are presentation documents that have been created using the StarOffice or OpenOffice software applications. These programs were developed by Sun Microsystems. The ODP files consist of slides that may contain images, text and other media input. The slides are then used to create reports, slide shows and electronic presentations.

The OpenOffice and StarOffice Presentation applications were introduced as an alternative to the Microsoft PowerPoint application and the ODP file format allows for the sharing of presentation documents across multiple applications and platforms. The files that the application creates are built using the OASIS XML-based OpenDocument standard.
