PowerPoint Transitions: Fade

PowerPoint Transitions: Fade

The Fade transition effect has been one of the oldest transitions available in PowerPoint. It is also the least distracting of all transitions, and most PowerPoint designers believe that this is one transition that’s even better than no transition at all and works in all scenarios.

Reset Slide

Reset Slide

Sometimes we come across slides that can be hazardous to our vision because such slides have nothing understated about them. Such loud slides can ensure that audiences get distracted. You might end up with such slides even with no fault of yours because someone else prepared them for you! You now need to eradicate all the formatting on the slide to make it look more simple and clean. You may need to change the position, size, and text layout for the placeholders on the slide too. Fortunately, there is an easy, one-click process to restore some sanity in such slides. It's called the Reset option.



Comparing and Merging Presentations

Comparing and Merging Presentations

If you are working on a presentation with your clients or even a co-worker, then you might end up in a situation where you both did not work on the same copy, one after the other. Instead, you worked on two different copies. These copies may contain changes done by you both, some similar and some different. Now you need to compare and merge these copies into a single, cohesive file without losing anything at all!



Artistic Effects for Pictures

Artistic Effects for Pictures

PowerPoint is a slide program but that doesn't mean that it does not have some cool picture editing tricks up its sleeve. When we say "cool", we certainly do not mean just inserting a picture, or even the fact that you can apply corrections or recolor hues. PowerPoint 2016 provides around 23 filters as part of its Artistic Effects options. Some of these filters (effects) can make your pictures look like paintings or sketches, and others can change the texture of your pictures.



Compress Pictures

Compress Pictures

Yes, undoubtedly a presentation with relevant pictures is more effective than plain text slides. However, even if pictures enhance appearances, they can also phenomenally increase the size of your presentation file. Picture compression can help. Recent versions of PowerPoint do some automatic picture compression, even if you are not aware. There are options to make any such compression even more effective.



Set Document Resolution

Set Document Resolution

One of PowerPoint's greatest qualities is that you can get all sorts of content from disparate sources and add them all within one presentation to create a unified document. Pictures are one of the most important content types you add on your slides. However, each picture you insert may have different resolutions, and thus even though you may have sized your picture to look like a small postage stamp on your slide, it may be increasing your file size by several megabytes.
