From Ideas to Presentation: Learn Design Tips with Microsoft PowerPoint
Tip 1: Use Quick Starter to draft an outline.
How to use Quick Starter? Simply click “New” and choose you desired topic. It’s hard to start with a blank slide. The quick starter will help you in creating a good outline. Pick your topic, then select your starter slides.
Tip 2: Change your default Black and White Template to Built-in Professional looked Templates
Avoid doing your PowerPoint Presentation with a blank slide. PowerPoint has a lot of templates to choose from so you won’t have to start from scratch. There are actually more templates online. This will make your presentations look more professional. It also saves time!
Tip 3: Change your bullet points to Diagrams using SmartArt
Instead of manually using shapes to create diagrams, you can use SmartArt for your visual information. You can even choose your preferred colors easily.
Tip 4: Use Design Ideas to make your slide better
This is the best tip ever. Using Design Ideas can help you save time in making a nice layout. Just click “Design Ideas” in the home tab. It will show you layouts that you can use for your slide.
Tip 5: Avoid plagiarism by using Stock Images
Clip Arts died many years ago. Now, we can use good quality photos using Stock Images. Just click the Insert Tab. Then, select Images. Click picture and then click the Stock Images. You don’t need to use any browsers to include a good picture in your presentation.
Tip 6: Choose the right color using Color Picker/ Eye Dropper
If you’re keen on color coordination, you can use the eye dropper. Click the text or shape. Then on the shape format, you may click the shape fill or outline. You will see a dropdown menu, then click the eyedropper. You can now choose the exact color you want to use.
Tip 7: Make your slides dynamic with 3D Models
Say good bye to flat images. To insert a 3D model, go to insert tab. Then, click 3D models. Select the category that is related to your topic.
Tip 8: Animate your 3D Models with Morph Transition
In adding transitions, just click the transitions tab. Then select the morph transition. There are so many transitions to choose from to make your presentation more dynamic.
Overall, there are three components of a successful presentation: content, visual design, and delivery.Eufer Pasion, MCT, MCE. Operations Lead of Line Learning and Development Solutions
