After the success of our Animated Gears, the first series, we are happy to bring you a new set of animated Gears. We call this one Animated Gears Again! Like the earlier series, these come in both animated & non animated versions. The time-consuming process of using Gears and animating them in PowerPoint is now made easy again.
Have you tried to draw a line or a circle with just holding a pencil or marker in your hand? You'll end up with a shape that may fail you in a geometry test but it still looks human, personal, and different -- just like these organic shapes. Download and use now.

Emphasis Effect animations determine how the slide object calls attention to itself while it is on-the-slide. Entrance and Exit effect animations allow a slide object to enter or exit the slide area, whereas slide objects with Emphasis Effect animations are already there on the slide area before they start animating, and will be there even after they have finished animating. Typical Emphasis Effects are Spin and Grow/Shrink. You can also apply Emphasis Effect animations to text objects so that the fonts or the text colors change.
In PowerPoint charts, when you choose to invert the fill for any negative option in a series of a chart, you end up seeing those negative series in the default white color. This is not a great option if your slide background is white or if you want negative series to show in red. In this tutorial, let us explore how to get over this limitation in PowerPoint 2013 using a workaround.
Similar to our Stars 01 and Stars 02 series, these combine-and-use star symbols are already colored using popular colors – and since they are native PowerPoint objects, you can change their fills, lines, and effects. All the stars are contained within several sample presentations you can download.
Among the several types of animations that PowerPoint 2013 provides, Entrance Effects are probably the most popular. By applying Entrance Effect animations, you can make your hitherto invisible slide object appear on the slide almost magically! You make them appear in the fraction of a second, or get them to fly in from any direction. You can also do a zoom in, or even better, just make it subtle with a simple fade in. Whatever Entrance Effects animation you choose, make sure to go for something that is in sync with the subject of your presentation.
If your chart has negative value then PowerPoint by default uses the same fill color for negative values in any chart. You can override this nature with the Invert if Negative option that we mentioned towards the end of the Changing Fills and Outlines of Chart Elements tutorial.

While Google may have the largest and most up-to-date search index, other search providers like Microsoft's Bing need to up the ante by providing more usability options so that visitors can get more optimum and narrowed-down results.
