Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Transparency for Shape Outlines

Jan 28, 2015

Transparency for Shape Outlines in 2011 for MacIn PowerPoint you can set various attributes for shapes -- adjusting Transparency for Shape Fills is one of such tasks. Similar to the shape fills, shape outlines such as solid lines and gradient lines also have transparency attribute. This attribute lets you reduce the opacity of the outline (also known as the border or line), so that the slide object or background behind shows through partially.

Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Gradient Stops

Jan 27, 2015

Gradient Stops in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac

After adding gradient fills to shapes you may want to make some changes to the gradient fill. Or, you may want to change the colors comprising your gradient outlines. To do so, you must be familiar with gradient stops. A gradient stop is the point where a new color is introduced within the gradient blend. Unlike PowerPoint versions on Windows, PowerPoint 2011 for Mac does not really use the term "gradient stop" - in fact no term is used and probably, this version just refers to these stops as 'colors'. However, we will call them stops within this tutorial.

Learn how to make changes to gradients and make your own new gradients in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.

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.
