New feature for DataPoint and Bluetooth Buttons in PowerPoint

Let me show our latest project where we use PowerPoint to streamline a waiting queue. There is a company with helpdesks, and they want to have some privacy when they are helping customers.

Arrow Circles for PowerPoint

You might have seen these types of arrow segments that form a circle - they are frequently used in slides that show processes, continuous sequences, and cycle diagrams. We bring you these arrow circles with 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 segments each - but these are not merely segmented shapes that you will find elsewhere.

First of all, you get these in two widths each - so you get a variation that lets you choose either a thinner or thicker segment. Additionally, you also get these segments in a regular geometric style - but what sets this apart is that we have also included an organic style so that your segments appear hand-drawn.

Picture Borders

Picture Borders

In PowerPoint, the Picture Border option adds an outline or even a beautiful frame to your picture. Once you insert a picture on your slide, you can apply various Adjust Picture options. You can also apply any of the preset Picture Styles available for the picture. In this tutorial, we'll explore how to add a border to an inserted picture in PowerPoint 2016.


Insert and/or Link Pictures

Insert and/or Link Pictures

Inserting a picture on PowerPoint slide is a frequent and commonplace task, and to you, this may look like a simple activity. But this simple task includes few options. You know that pictures located in any of your folders can be inserted on a slide. By default, PowerPoint retains no relation; even if you delete or move the original picture file you inserted, the copy on your slide will still be retained since PowerPoint saves the picture as a part of the file it creates. Yet, there are options within PowerPoint that let you maintain the relation between the original picture and the inserted picture. For example, if you make changes to your original picture, PowerPoint will update its copy on the slide!


Crop Pictures

Crop Pictures

After inserting a picture in your slide, you should first consider if the picture you have used complements the message of your presentation and slide. Even if it is relevant, you should consider making it more pertinent by removing the areas that may be not required. In other words, you must ponder and decide whether you want to use PowerPoint's Crop options. Cropping an area removes extraneous areas, and lets you add focus to the areas of the picture that are appropriate to the topic of your presentation.

Crop Pictures (Crop to Shape)

While you can conventionally crop pictures in PowerPoint to a rectangular constraint, you can also opt to use another shape to crop instead. This tutorial explains the Crop to Shape option that lets you choose non-rectangular cropping shapes for your pictures; the results tend to look like a picture contained within a shape.

Save as PDF

Saving a PowerPoint presentation as a PDF has its pros and cons. The biggest advantage is that recipients won’t be able to edit, and you can embed fonts easily. Disadvantages include that you cannot be multimedia-friendly. Whatever your thoughts may be, PowerPoint makes it very easy to create PDFs.
