Or did you know that some objects have more than one embedded 3D animated Scene, so that you can choose the Scene you want? We will explore all these options within this post.

Learning Color

April 05, 2019

Learning Color

Quick - what's a better slide color: gray or red? Almost everyone will say gray is far better as a slide color than red. Most of the time we agree, but then, color in itself is a fickle subject because what may work most of the time may not work in a different scenario. Worse, a color that's not imaginable as a slide color may look attractive. Yes, stranger things have happened in the unexplainable world of color.

Get started with learning more about color.

Reuse Slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Reusing your existing slides can be a great help: first you need not recreate stuff you already have and secondly you are saving so much time that you can use more effectively to practice your presentation! Having said that, always start by creating an outline of your presentation. This is important because it gives you an opportunity to plan your slides all over again. Thereafter, reuse any existing slides. PowerPoint provides a quick command that locates specific slides, and enables you to add them to the active presentation.

Working with Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

April 03, 2019

Working with Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Let’s start with the basics, what are Guides? Consider Guides as a Grid on your slide that you create. Each single Guide can be moved, added, or deleted. Guides also have snap options that are always on. Once the Guides are made visible on the slide, all objects that venture close enough to them just snap. Along with Rulers and Gridlines, Guides help you position your slide objects with more precision, and you can make them work for you.

Clichés: Teamwork Pictures

April 01, 2019

Clichés: Teamwork Pictures

Rob’s presentation had this picture concept and so did Sam’s – and so do countless other slides. What’s this picture concept that populates so many slides? Why is it so popular? And more importantly–why is it so over-used? First of all, let’s admit that the reason why a picture concept gets clichéd is because it is good to start with, but then, it’s too good for its own existence. Rampant overuse means that the emotions that this picture concept evoked do not work anymore, and that’s exactly what happened with the teamwork picture that showed many, many hands placed together. And now, just because some people over-used the concept, you have to find, create, and use newer visual concepts to cater to that same emotion!

Learn why teamwork pictures such as hands placed together are so clichéd, and what you can do about it.
