Color Models: RGB

Color Models: RGB

Color in electronic devices is made up from light, as already discussed in our Color Models article. The three primary colors of this electronic color model are red, blue, and green. Thus this model is called the RGB color model. RGB is essentially an abbreviation for Red Green Blue.

Learn about how Red, Green and Blue comprise the primary colors within your computer screens

Color Models: HSL

Color Models: HSL

While computers can easily understand the fact that you mix red and green to end up with yellow, that's some strange logic to us humans which we shall never comprehend! For most of us, we understand that mixing yellow and blue makes green. So how can we stay within the RGB color model, which computers understand, and mix colors more creatively to use a method which we humans can understand? This need for a more creative model gave birth to the HSL (Hue, Saturation, and Luminosity) color model.

Learn about Hue, Saturation and Luminosity, and how you can use these properties to mix colors

Insert Picture from Facebook

PowerPoint 2013 enables you to insert online pictures in more than one way, and explored these various options in our Insert Online Pictures in PowerPoint 2013 tutorial. This is the last tutorial of this series, and you will learn how you can use the Facebook option to insert pictures which are uploaded within your Facebook account, straight into PowerPoint 2013.


Inserting Screenshots

Inserting Screenshots

By its very nature, PowerPoint is an application that takes content of different types and arranges them all together coherently within a slide. Such content often includes text, pictures, charts, multimedia, and other types. Additionally, since many people use PowerPoint for training programs, you will find many slides that contain screenshots of computer program interfaces. Typically, you capture these screenshots in another program and then insert that screenshot like a regular picture within PowerPoint 2013. Many users do not realize that you can add a screenshot from within PowerPoint without the need for another program.


Recolor Picture Backgrounds

Recolor Picture Backgrounds

One of the worst things that you can do to your PowerPoint presentation is to add a busy, multi-colored picture background to your slides. However, people do that all the time and in the process, they compromise the subtlety and contrast of any content on their slides. So why do they do so? Most of them look at the picture in isolation to the entire picture. As a picture, their chosen content may appear awesome. However, place the same picture as a backdrop for text, charts, shapes, or other slide objects, and you will realize that this just doesn't work. Fortunately, you can make the visual noise in any picture more subtle by recoloring them within PowerPoint.


Adjust Picture Options

Adjust Picture Options

After a picture is inserted on your PowerPoint slide, you might want to make adjustments to the picture itself so that it looks distinctive and focused. You can change a picture's look by resizing, cropping, changing color values, adjusting saturation, or by applying artistic effects. In this tutorial, we'll explore the options available within PowerPoint 2013 to make these picture adjustments. Later, in subsequent tutorials of this series, you will learn more about the individual options we discuss in this tutorial.
