  • Choose a colour This template can be used in one of four colours. To change the colour select Format > Slide Design from the menu toolbar. This will display the colour options on the right-hand side of your screen. Choose a colour and select Apply to All Slides. Add slides If you know how many slides you will need, set them up before you start to write into them. Select one of the slide formats in the left-hand column and from the menu toolbar click Edit > Duplicate (ctrl + D). A new slide will appear after the one you selected. Repeat until you have the number of slides of each format that you need. Drag and drop them into the right order. Add pictures First you need to crop your picture to the right size. Your presentation will look best if you keep to the given sizes: small pictures at 9cm square and big ones at 13.8 cm square. To crop a picture, double click it in My Computer so that it opens in Picture Manager. Choose Edit Picture from the menu. Choose Crop and move the corner bars till you’re happy – look at the pixels under Picture Dimensions to make sure you have a square (but don’t worry about the size at this point). Save As… to make sure you don’t lose your original. Bring your picture into the slide: Insert > Picture > From File. Make it the right size: Right-click the picture and choose Format Picture. Click the Size tab and set the width and height to 9cm or 13.8 cm. Compress it: Click Picture tab > Compress… and under Change resolution, click web/screen (this will keep down the total file-size and make your presentation easier to email and less prone to crashing). Position the photos as in the template, placing them between the dotted guides (if you can’t see the guides, choose from the menu View > Grid and Guides… and click ‘Display drawing guides on screen’). If your picture won’t crop to a square, crop and position it so that you keep the balance of the slide.
  • Objectives for CS no different to those of other actors – govts, private sector, donors etc
