This guide offers straightforward advice that will help you use Microsoft PowerPoint to create effective and enjoyable presentations.

Take time while in this screen to determine how your animation effects will appear.
Clicking on the Timing menu gives you options so that your textboxes, clip art, and other animation elements can be presented on a mouse click, automatically, or automatically after a preset length of time .
Defining a balanced slide may seem like a matter of opinion, but there are concrete criteria, including:
Clip art and text must fit together well. No element -- title, points, graphics -- should overpower the others.
Headings should be consistent in size and placement. They should be large and clear.
Easy to understand.
Example of a Balanced Slide The clip art illustrates the slide and is well placed on the layout. The title is large and clear. Good use of contrasting colors on slide and in font. Text is easy to read and well sized.
Example of an Unbalanced Slide Title and color scheme are still fine. Text is too small . Clip art is too large. This slide is hard to read and places unnecessary emphasis on the artwork.
