  3. 3. SLIDE DESIGN/LAYOUT The first thing to remember about creating ef fective presentation slides is that PowerPoint has a number of built - in tools to help you On the DESIGN tab, you can choose from a library of pre - formatted design options.  Customize these using the Colors, Fonts, and Effects buttons  Hover over an option to see how it would affect the slide contents  Click on an option to make the change On the HOME tab, select the Layout button to make a change to the current slide or the New Slide button to choose a layout for the next slide to be created
  4. 4. MAKE POWERPOINT DO THE WORK If you look at this slide in normal view, you will see there is an empty box to the right  Press “ESC” to view This is a pre-formatted content box that allows you to easily add text or objects to your slide Hover over each of the icons to see what they do, or click on the bullet point to add text

  6. 6. WAIT, HOW DID I ADD THAT PICTURE?
  7. 7. PICTURES AND OTHER OBJECTS Using PowerPoint’s pre -formatted content boxes makes adding pictures, graphs, charts, media, and other elements pretty easy It is best to have pictures saved somewhere before adding them to the PowerPoint. Copy and paste is possible, but may make formatting dif ficult Once you have a picture, use the picture tools menu to add enhancements like a frame or drop shadow to the picture
  8. 8. PICTURE EXAMPLE  The image to the left has a white border and a drop shadow that was added simply by using the Picture Tools menu  In normal view, click on the picture to see what other changes can be made

  12. 12. SMART ART
  13. 13. CALLING ATTENTION TO TEXT One of the most effective text effects is the Drop Shadow  To create this, click on the S button in the font menu You can also highlight important words with color M aking the first letter of a word larger will also create impact
  14. 14. TRANSITIONS AND ANIMATIONS
  15. 15. TRANSITIONS Transitions are the animations that occur between slide changes  The different options are found on the Transitions tab From this tab, you can change the transition type, the duration of the transition, and the action controlling the slide change (on mouse click or after a specified amount of time) A rule of thumb is to stick with one or two transition types for a short presentation, and no more than four for a long one
  16. 16. ANIMATIONS Animations refer to any actions applied to the slide content  The different options are found on the Animations tab From this tab you can choose how you want the slide contents to appear on the slide  For instance, this text can Float in  And this text can Bounce in It even works on pictures As with the transitions, keep the number of dif ferent animations to a minimum, otherwise they lose their impact
  17. 17. RECAP AND WRAP-UP
  18. 18. REMEMBER PowerPoint has a lot of cool features to add style to your presentations, BUT the best advice is to keep it simple Avoid overusing text on slides and space out the bullet points Pictures can add interest to your slides and make text more powerful.
