Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Creating Custom Slide Shows

Creating Custom Slide Shows in PowerPoint 2011

Has it ever happened that you wanted to include just a few slides in your slide show rather than displaying the entire presentation? Then you need not delete the slides that need not be shown -- nor do you need to create a whole new presentation containing only the slides to be shown. All you need to do is to create a Custom Slide Show! So, what's a custom slide show? Think of your individual slides as songs within a playlist -- using the playlist analogy, your custom slide show is a playlist of those songs -- you just substitute songs for slides!

Compress Pictures in PowerPoint 2013

There is no doubt that a presentation with relevant pictures is more effective than just a plain text presentation. Although pictures enhance the look of your presentation, they can also phenomenally increase the size of your presentation file. PowerPoint 2013 and some previous versions are better in that respect compared to the much older versions because they do some compression even if you may not be aware -- yet there is an option to make the compression even more effective.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Playing Video Across Slides

Sept 30, 2014

Playing Video Across Slides in PowerPoint 2013

Do you want to add a video clip to your PowerPoint slide so that it continues to play across subsequent slides? This actually means that when you move from one slide to another, the video continues playing without any interruption. In PowerPoint 2007, Play Across Slides option was available in interface -- but in PowerPoint 2010 and 2013 it has been removed within the interface -- however, we found a workaround to get this option back, as explained in this tutorial.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Reset Pictures

Sept 30, 2014

Reset Pictures in PowerPoint 2013

Once a picture is inserted within PowerPoint, any manipulations you make to that picture are strictly only on the surface. The appearance of the picture changes on the slide, but the unaltered picture is stored within your PowerPoint presentation. Essentially that's good because if you make many changes to a picture -- and then regret experimenting -- then you can just reset your picture rather than starting all over again! There's one caveat though -- the option to reset any picture back to its original form works only if you have not run any compression options for pictures within your presentation.

Handmade Slides: Using Scanned Pictures

Handmade Slides: Using Scanned Pictures

Using pictures in your slides does not mean that you are limited to using photographs from stock photo houses. You can certainly use your own camera -- either a digital camera or even the camera built within your phone to source your own pictures. You can also look at some unconventional sources, such as a scanner. A scanner? Yes, that's a device that several of us have not used for many years now -- but if you have one of these devices attached to your computer, do consider it as a source of visual content.

Explore how a scanner can be put to good use to add interest to your slides.
