PowerPoint Infographics: Bucket Diagrams with Money
PowerPoint Infographics: Bucket Diagrams with Money

Bucket diagrams are so expressive, useful, and direct in the message they provide. Yes, these diagrams have everything to do with buckets and the money they contain. While the buckets themselves represent a source or destination, the money represents the financial liquidity. Buckets show items in distribution, they represent the flow of things or display collections of items. An empty bucket can indicate the capacity to which it can be filled. A bucket pouring money in another could represent the distribution. You can have buckets that are full, empty, or somewhat full. And you can move the money from one bucket to another!

Docs.com Tutorials


Getting Started with Docs.com

Docs.com is a file sharing site from Microsoft that lets you share many of your Microsoft Office files with other people. While there are many sites that allow you to share files, what sets Docs.com apart is that the file formats of your files are unchanged. This is a huge advantage since Docs.com treats most Microsoft Office files such as PPTX (PowerPoint), DOCX (Word), and XLSX (Excel) as native.

Hue in HSL

Colors can be darker or lighter - and this in color terms is called Luminosity. Color can also be saturated (vibrant) or desaturated (neutralized). Desaturation can be done to a lesser extent or more, and when it happens to the maximum extent possible, that's the same as completely neutralizing the color altogether - think about converting a colored picture to grayscale and you will understand what may be happening! This property of color is called Saturation. Now beyond Luminosity and Saturation lies the Hue of color. You can have a blue that's dark or light, and even vibrant or neutralized. But you can also have a green, a red, an orange, a yellow, or any other color with those same attributes. This red, green, yellow, or blue property is nothing else but the Hue of the color.

Working with HSL Colors

Assuming someone has provided you with an HSL (Hue, Saturation, and Luminosity) value of a color, and asked you to add a rectangle of that color to a slide in PowerPoint 2013, then how do you proceed? Let's also explore another scenario. What if you have started with a color that's close enough to what you need, but it's not the exact one. Maybe you need it to be a little less saturated? Again, you will benefit by working with the HSL color model rather than the RGB model.
