Title and background hard to read• You have a dark text and a dark background. It’s hard to read and looks really rubbish
Same Problem• Again, a light background and light text looks bad• Rubbish!
Title is hard to read• Text and graphics are in the way
Graphical Relevance• You should have a theme to your slides. The background here is old, like some Egyptian parchment.• But the image is of something unrelated.• Rubbish

Too much text• Microsoft PowerPoint is a presentation program developed by Microsoft. It is part of the Microsoft Office system, and runs on Microsoft Windows and the Mac OS computer operating systems. The Windows version can run on the Linux operating system, under the Wine compatibility layer.• PowerPoint is widely used by business people, educators, students, and trainers and is among the most prevalent forms of persuasive technology. Beginning with Microsoft Office 2003, Microsoft revised the branding to emphasize PowerPoints place within the office suite, calling it Microsoft Office PowerPoint instead of just Microsoft PowerPoint. The current versions are Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 for Windows and 2008 for Mac.• Contents• [hide]• History• Operation• Cultural effects• Versions• File formats• Gallery• See also• References• External links•  History• PowerPoint was initially developed in 1984 by Forethought, Inc., Sunnyvale, California, for the Macintosh computer. In 1987, Forethought was bought by Microsoft and became Microsofts Graphics Business Unit, which continued to further develop the software.•  Operation• PowerPoint presentations consist of a number of individual pages or "slides". The "slide" analogy is a reference to the slide projector, a device that has become obsolete due to the use of PowerPoint and other presentation software. Slides may contain text, graphics, movies, and other objects, which may be arranged freely on the slide. PowerPoint, however, facilitates the use of a consistent style in a presentation using a template or "Slide Master".• The presentation can be printed or displayed live on a computer and navigated through at the command of the presenter. For larger audiences the computer display is often projected using a video projector. Slides can also form the basis of webcasts.• PowerPoint provides three types of movements:• Entrance, emphasis, and exit of elements on a slide itself are controlled by what PowerPoint calls Custom Animations• Transitions, on the other hand are movements between slides. These can be animated in a variety of ways• Custom animation can be used to create small story boards by animating pictures to enter, exit or move Also, this text is plagiarized! Your slides must be original or you might get into trouble
This slide is too busy• Too many fonts• Horrible background• Too many pictures• Too many animations
The worst thing about this presentation…What is the one worst mistake the author of this presentation has made?- No theme between slides. Each one looks like it comes from a different presentation.What is the one good thing?- It has a focused topic (bad presentations)
Also, no end• And no introduction or clear sections.
