Make Visually Stunning PowerPoints

2,215

Published on

Slides for a workshop I teach on the expert use of PowerPoint. Covers:
Slide Master -- Use to create custom themes and templates
Text -- How to make your content legible and fun/pretty
Images -- Simple formatting and effects
Autoshapes -- Get creative and make your own design elements and clipart
Animations -- My personal passion. Used effectively, animations can help the audience understand a complex topic, or add visual interest (think motion graphics)
Action buttons -- If your presentation will be distributed to individuals rather than presented, use buttons to give them control over navigation and provide interactivity

Past attendees of the 2 hour workshop sing its praises and were excited by the fun and approachable material.

  • I think most of you know what makes a good presentation, but you might be held back by the fact that you don’t know how to use PowerPoint to achieve your goals. That’s what this class is for, teaching you to be an expert user of PowerPoint.
  • Screenshots from MS PowerPoint 2010
  • Graphicmixed from Open ClipArt Library image
  • Big!: Inner shadow(darker red), outline(darkest red), glow(white), reflection(closest)Bold!: outline(yellow 2¼ pt), shadow(drop black)New!: bevel(slope), 3D rotation(oblique top right), shadow(drop darkest green)Exciting: shadow(offset center), outline(white ¾ pt), transform(cascade down)
  • Everything here is an autoshape, except for the lightbulb clipart.
  • Mention the freeform shapesFor fills, mention transparency settings

  • Double-click an image to change the ribbon.Simple editing – if you’re serious about editing an image you should use Gimp or something similar.I like the Recolor option for making watermarks, or unifying the slide.If image has a transparent background you can apply shape effects that will cling to the image (not the image container).Crop to shape! Easily get rounded corners or whatever you want.
