  • 1. How to make a ‘banksy’ style image in Powerpoint
    A content making tutorial from:
  • 2. Step one: Find some images
    A content making tutorial from:
    I did some image searches and found...
    A pretty young girl dressed for the 4th of July holding a blank blue sign.
    Cassette image

    Brick walls...
  • 3. Step two: Layer up your images
    A content making tutorial from:
    I then used the contrast and colour settings to make the images appear like a two tone stencil.
    Use right click and format picture.
    This will bring up the menu for your chosen layer. I then moved the brightness down and the contrast up until I achieved my desired effect.
    N.B. I also added a soft outline to the girl, cassette and a white circle images I used to allow the brickwork to show through. See below for the tool bar choices.
  • 4. Step three: Add a tag line
    A content making tutorial from:
    Use the in-built text and drawing tools to create your tagline. I used the speech bubble tool with a soft edge effect on the outline to look like it was sprayed. The text was layered above the red bubble.
    Text Gradients:
    I added a gradient fill to make the text look like it was sprayed with a stencil. Try using the inbuilt options to see what effects you can achieve.
  • 5. Step four: Create your image
    A content making tutorial from:
    Once I was happy with the design, I used the different export functions in Powerpoint to create a jpeg image file.
  • 6. Step five: Use you image
    A content making tutorial from:
    You can use your image in a variety of ways:
    • Create a T shirt print online
    • 7. Upload to Flickr or online shareinglocations
    • 8. Add to Google Picassa
    • 9. Use this in your print communications
    • 10. Use this on your blog
