Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Trim Video Clips

Trim Video Clips in PowerPoint 2013

When you insert video clips in your presentations, you may find that the video clip inserted may be too long. Or maybe you just need to show part of the video clip, rather than wasting your audience's time showing them the entire clip. Yes, you can use the Player Controls bar to scrub and play the clip from exactly where you want it to begin. However, scrubbing a clip in front of an audience can appear unprofessional. Another way is to trim the video clip outside PowerPoint in a dedicated video program. You have one more option, and that is to use the Trim Video option within PowerPoint to get the results.

Changing Axis Labels in PowerPoint 2010

In your chart, Axis Labels are the labels for the Categories and Values on chart axes. So where do these labels come from? Category axis labels reflect the Category names within your data (typically within the built-in Excel sheet). Values on the other hand are determined by PowerPoint based upon the maximum value in your data -- the minimum value is always set to zero. Of course you can change the Minimum and Maximum values if you want.

Should Charts be Animated?

Charts are something that are often shared between Excel and PowerPoint - and while Excel gurus may look down at PowerPoint as far as charting is concerned, there indeed is one charting feature that is not doable as well in Excel – and that is animating charts. OK, an Excel guru somewhere may have said that it’s great that you cannot animate charts in Excel - after all many PowerPoint users do create a mess with animation anyway!

Learn PowerPoint 2010 for Windows: Change Major and Minor Units of Value Axis

Sept 19, 2014

Change Major and Minor Units of Value Axis in PowerPoint 2010

While learning about chart axes, you will come across two terms, Major and Minor units. These are the intervals at which the axis spaces itself -- as the name itself suggests, you can choose to space the axis at two levels: Major and Minor. By default, PowerPoint sets the Major and Minor units on its own -- many times, this may be exactly what you need. At other times, you may want to set your own intervals for the Major and Minor units for several reasons.

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.
