Handmade Slides: Sticky Tape
These "sticky tape" graphics are ready-made
segments that can be used within your PowerPoint slides to create a look that makes a picture, shape,
or anything else appear as if it has been stuck on a surface, board, or wall with tape! Some color and
transparency variations of these sticky tape segments are already contained within the sample
presentation that you download. Just copy them and paste them on your slides.
Download these sticky tapes, and use them in your slides
Handmade Slides: Transparent Texture Backgrounds in PowerPoint 2010
PowerPoint provides umpteen Themes that can be applied to enhance the look of your slides. However,
you'll soon get tired of all the ready-made Themes and their associated Background Styles because not
only is everyone using the same Themes, but most of these verge on the geometric rather than organic look.
The key is to make your slides appear "handmade" so that they stand apart. This tutorial leads you steps
to change a plain background into something that's more personal.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Super Themes
When you create a presentation in
PowerPoint 2013, you'll notice that the aspect ratio is always 16:9, which is the new default --
if you just accept these defaults, then all your slides will be in widescreen (16:9) rather than normal
(4:3) aspect ratios. All these new slides use colors, effects, fonts, etc, derived from the active Theme.
In PowerPoint 2013, each of the new Themes has four variants built-in -- to explore these variants,
access the Design tab of the Ribbon and you'll see a new group called Variants.
These variants are actually separate Themes!

Handmade Slides: Frame Corners for PowerPoint - 01
These ready-made frame corners are
already within PowerPoint slides -- and have been provided in both black and white colors. Both variations
are contained within two separate slides in one presentation that you can download.
Just copy them and paste individual frame corners over your inserted
pictures. Make sure you place them on the top-left corner of your pictures. For the other three
corners, duplicate these frame corners, and rotate them.
Download and use these frame corners in your slides
