Choosing the Right Picture for your Slides: by Jullietta Stoencheva
Choosing the Right Picture for your Slides: by Jullietta Stoencheva

You've probably heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the same goes for presentation photos. Whether it's using PowerPoint, Sway, or one of those old school overhead projectors (ok, so we might be wrong about that last one), images make messages stronger. Well, without getting all geeky about it, research shows that the human brain processes information more easily when supported by pictures. In fact, we remember slides with visual cues 55% better.

Have you worked with the Screenshot option in previous versions such as PowerPoint 2010 and PowerPoint 2013? This option allowed you to add a screenshot from within PowerPoint.

Screen Recording

Similar to the Screenshot option that lets you capture still screenshots, you can use the new Screen Recording option in PowerPoint 2013 to quickly record a video clip of your onscreen activity, from within the program. Do note though that this Screen Recording option is among the new features introduced in PowerPoint 2016, and also added as part of the February 2015 updates to PowerPoint 2013. You will only find this option in PowerPoint 2013 if you have installed all recent updates.

Inspect Document

Inspect Document

When your presentation is something you deliver, it rarely matters if you have any content invisible to your audiences, such as your slide notes, comments, and document properties. Typically, none of these are visible to your audience, and you are free to add any information in these areas that will enable you to be better prepared to deliver your slides. However, if you need to share the same PowerPoint presentation with colleagues, or even publish it online, the scenario will be different. Most users don't even think twice about all this information simply due to lack of awareness. They should because most of this content may include hidden data or information that you or your company may not want to share.

Check Accessibility

Check Accessibility

An understanding has grown over the years to make all kinds of computer-generated content available to people with disabilities. PowerPoint is no stranger to this accessibility concept and has many options up its sleeve that help your slides be more relevant to those with accessibility impairments. Similar to how PowerPoint's spell checker alerts you to potential spelling errors, the built-in Accessibility Checker highlights potential accessibility issues in your presentation so that you can fix these potential problems and make your content accessible to everyone.

Check Compatibility

Check Compatibility

You might have experienced this scenario: you have created a presentation within PowerPoint 2013, but you are not sure whether your client, boss, friend, or colleague, who has an earlier version of PowerPoint will be able to view and edit this presentation using the same options that you have used? And, if you save this presentation as a file compatible with an earlier version of PowerPoint, there are chances that you could lose some attributes of the presentation that are not available in previous versions. Or worse, your editable content could just change to flat, non-editable pictures!
