Atoms represent activity at the most minute level, and are often used to suggest agility! In this set, we bring you not one or two, but ten variations of these atoms. These atom graphics can be used on their own, or also combined with other graphics such as a human head to create a larger concept or analogy!
These "map pin" graphics are already placed in PowerPoint slides - just copy them and paste within a slide that already contains a map to create a look that lets you highlight a location on your map! Download and use these map pins in your slides.

In this tutorial we'll explore the difference in between Content and Picture placeholders.
If you want to logically categorize your presentation slides so that they can be easily managed, then you should use the Sections option.

Many applications, including PowerPoint allow you to record your voice using a connected microphone. In PowerPoint such recorded voice-overs work very well as slide narrations. However, if your connected microphone does not work using the recording options in PowerPoint or another application, then you may have to first find if the microphone hardware was detected or not by the Mac OS X. Also if detected, has it been selected for recording? In this tutorial, we will discover how you can take care of these concerns -- follow these steps to learn more.

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.
