These New Year themed clip arts for PowerPoint are all silhouettes that are ready to use within your PowerPoint presentation slides. These silhouette clip arts have been provided in black and white variations that are contained within two separate sample presentations that you download.
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.

PowerPoint and indeed all Microsoft Office programs allow you to work with a particular object only if it is selected. For example, you select a shape to make changes to the shape. You similarly select a chart to edit the chart. And yes, you can select a text container object such as a text placeholder, a text box, or even a shape -- and then make changes to its position, formatting, size, etc. However, this changes the entire object -- and leaves the actual text content within that object largely unchanged. To make changes to the actual text, you first need to select the text separately and then make changes by using the options available within the Home tab of the Ribbon or the Mini Toolbar.
Do you want to add snowflakes to your slides, for the winter look? Do you want snowflakes that are already animated for you? Then you will love these Snowflakes for PowerPoint - this product includes both non-animated and animated snowflakes. These snowflakes are already within PowerPoint slides. Just copy the entire slide (with multiple snowflakes for the animated versions) or just single snowflakes (for the non-animated version - and then paste within your slides). You get 5 sets of snowflakes - four of them are of different styles, and the 5th one has snowflakes that are broken or melted! Combine snowflakes from all 5 sets to create something unique and special.
At some point of time, we all need dummy text to quickly add to our slides so that we can ascertain how a body of text looks or fits within a certain text box or placeholder. Microsoft introduced an undocumented feature in PowerPoint that enables you achieve this with just a few keystrokes, and once you are used to these shortcuts, you'll learn to appreciate this feature so much!
There are three types of text containers that PowerPoint provides: text placeholders, text boxes, and shapes -- all three text containers are sufficiently similar in their characteristics for layout options for the text contained inside them. In this tutorial, we will explore the alignment and text direction options for text within these text containers in PowerPoint 2013.
We begin with a bunch of Christmas stuff -- a Christmas PowerPoint kit and some animated slides that can be used for greeting cards. Then we bring you an exclusive conversation with Gerry Praysman, who discusses SlideShark's PDF Support options. We also have some Hanukkah themed clip art. And then there's a bunch of tutorial on proofing and text within PowerPoint 2013 for Windows. And don't miss the new discussions and templates of this week!

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.
