  • Black and white is fineCleanNot a lot of textLet images tell the storyNo – or very few – whizzy transitions
  • Some nice templates on internet…. But not too great!
  • Make your own template: Edit the slide master – fonts, add logo, adjust the background (in this case, add a photo and increase the transparency setting). Do the 1st and 3rd, and from then on all the slides will follow the pattern.
