We bring you Map Pins this time that can be used over maps or anything else that you want to highlight on your slides. Also you can take part in the very interesting Business Presentations Survey, held once every 10 years, and win a gift. PowerPoint 2013 users can learn more from a bunch of Audio (Sound) and Visuals (Graphics) tutorials.
These Segment Polygon series comprise segmented graphics -- thus the Segmented Triangle has 3 segments, the Segmented Square has 4 segments, and so on. Download and use these segment polygons in your slides.

PowerPoint provides various picture enhancement options such as: Picture Adjustments, Picture Styles, Picture Effects, and Picture Borders. Beyond these options, there are some very significant yet basic picture editing options that you should consider -- these include learning how you can Resize, Rotate, and Flip pictures. All of these options help you to enhance the look of your inserted pictures.
After inserting pictures within your PowerPoint slide, you may want to change the appearance of the picture. Picture Styles are based on PowerPoint's Picture Effects capabilities and add some effects with a click. Most of the time, this means that a single Picture Style adds a reflection, a glow, and a border to your picture. However, you can also apply any of these effects individually to your pictures. In all, PowerPoint provides 6 effects: shadow, reflection, glow, soft edges, bevel, and 3-D rotation.
The Picture Border option in PowerPoint adds a simple outline or even a beautiful frame to your pictures. Once you insert a picture on your slide, you may want to apply various adjust picture options. Additionally, you can also apply the preset Picture Styles available. In this tutorial we'll explore how to add Borders to the inserted pictures in PowerPoint 2013.
Here's the new, fifth set of animated Gears you can use within your slides - we call this one Even More Gears! Like the earlier series, these come in both animated and non-animated versions. The time-consuming process of using Gears and animating them in PowerPoint is now made easy again. Watch the video on this page and explore how the gears animate perfectly all the time.
While making a visually strong PowerPoint presentation you can add shapes and pictures to it. You can also fill your shapes with pictures - maybe sometimes you end up with not so desirable results. Primarily, you'll find that PowerPoint insists on filling the entire picture within the shape - in the process, the picture itself may appear distorted. Fortunately, regaining this lost proportion is an easy option, as you will learn in this tutorial.

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.
