Learn PowerPoint 2010 for Windows: Working with HSL Colors

August 5, 2015

Working with HSL Colors in PowerPoint 2010

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 2010, 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.

Learn about how to work with HSL colors in PowerPoint 2010.

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!

Color: Hue in HSL

Color: 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.

Explore the role that Hue plays in the world of color.

PowerPoint Infographics: Fortune Teller Origami, Matrix Diagram

You've all seen matrix diagrams - and these make it possible for you to explain related and dependent concepts. However, we decided to look at the matrix diagram from another perspective and found something similar in a fortune teller origami!

Color: Saturation in HSL

Color: Saturation in HSL

Color is a fascinating subject – a subject that evokes enough creativity and pickles the minds of many. If we were to pause looking at color as a creative subject for just a brief amount of time, we would be able to explore it from a different perspective – the perspective of science! This color science will open new avenues for us to understand why colors behave in certain ways. For example, why do some colors look more vibrant than others? What is this quality that makes them shout? And why are some colors so muted – what makes them so understated and well-behaved? Well, the quality of color that makes all this shouting and mellowing happen is called Saturation, and believe it or not – it has everything to do with the color grey. We will learn more about what grey does to colors in this tutorial.

Explore how Saturation works within the HSL color model.


Color: Luminosity in HSL

July 30, 2015

Color: Luminosity in HSL

We explored the HSL color model broadly previously -- now we will look at Luminosity, one of its three properties. So what is Luminosity? Luminosity is the value that spans from pure black (darkest) to pure white (lightest). Now how does Luminosity influence any color? If we change the Luminosity values to 0 (zero) for a given colors, it does not matter what Hue or Saturation values they have – they will all be black! This reasoning is easy to explain using an analogy. In a very dark room, if you switch off the light you will be left with pitch darkness, and any object of any color will appear black. That’s precisely what's happening here too!

Explore how Luminosity works within the HSL color model.


How Do Spreadsheets End Up On Slides

How Do Spreadsheets End Up On Slides

I often hear about leaders asking staff members to put a spreadsheet on a slide. I see this in the work I do reviewing slides from participants before my customized corporate workshops. These huge tables of numbers are overwhelming. In my workshops I prepare makeovers of slides and show the participants how the key message of the spreadsheet could be communicated as a visual instead. It is not uncommon that the participant who prepared the slide says that the visual is clearer, but they have to put the whole spreadsheet on the slide because the boss requires it.

Dave Paradi explains more.


Color: HSL

July 29, 2015

Color: HSL

We learned about the RGB Color model in a previous tutorial -- and 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.

Learn PowerPoint 2003 for Windows: Add or Delete Points (Vertexes) for Shapes

You have learned what the Edit Points option in PowerPoint is, and how it works. The Points you see and edit give you control over how you want a shape to look appearance-wise. Even then, sometimes you might find it difficult to edit a certain segment (a part of the line between two points) in a shape because there are no points available to manipulate -- or maybe there are far too many points! PowerPoint provides a simple solution for this problem -- you can add and delete points in a shape.

Learn how to add or delete points (vertexes) for a shape in PowerPoint 2003.

Edit Points for Shapes in PowerPoint 2003 for Windows

When you use any of the shapes available in PowerPoint, you are not limited to what their default appearance looks like. You may want to change a rectangle to a rhombus, or even edit a curved or freeform line differently. The good news is that you can do this by using the Edit Points option -- this almost makes PowerPoint a drawing program that provides you the option to play with vertexes (points), handles, etc. -- very similar to what you would do in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW.

Learn how to change the appearance of a shape in PowerPoint 2003 using the Edit Points option.


Keep the Audience Attentive: by Claudyne Wilder

Claudyne Wilder

Imagine that you are listening to a presenter droning on and on, using the same tone of voice and the same pace. Before long you start thinking about the vacation you want to take and the plans you would like to make for the weekend. Then, all of a sudden, you realize that you are no longer really listening. But wait, the presenter just said something you might need to know. It's too late. You have missed it.
