    Size 36The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dogs
  • 5. Design: Font
    Move from left to right
    Keep proportions
    One topic per slide
    Use Keywords
    Use Statements, not sentences
    Keep slides neat. Do not make them busy.
  • 6. Design: Font
    Minimize the use of numbers
    Don’t leave your Screen Saver on
    Don’t use the edges of the slide
  • 7. Design: Color
    Keep color combinations easy to read
    Stay neutral
    If at all possible, view slides through display device
    Color will change from one device to another.
  • 8. Color Examples
  • 9. Guidelines to Consider
    Creating interesting slides for songs, sermon notes, and even announcements can add interest to any worship experience.
    Use compelling material

  • 12. Presentation Equipment
    Resolution
    Most projectors are 1024 x 768
    Some are 800 x 600
    Screen Ratio
    Most projectors are 4:3 ratio
    Widescreen becoming popular with computers
    16:9
    Must match your presentation with display device
  • 13. Using Handouts
    Note: Distribute handouts at the end - not during the presentation.
    PowerPoint allows for various types of handouts for your presentation
    Allows you to control how many per page
    Allows for note taking lines
    Grey Scale vs. Colour vs. B&W
    Usually grey scale is the best.
    If you have the money, color
  • 14. The Media is NOT the Message
    You are the one giving the presentation
    Slides should enhance and/or re-enforce what you say
    Slides should not distract from your message
    Interact with the media whenever possible
    Point
    Use laser pointer
    Refer to slides

    One of the best ways to get live shots of a person or event into PowerPoint or Keynote, etc.
