Manage and Remove Connected Services in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

We already showed how you can add connected services in PowerPoint 2016. Although it may seem that you are adding these services to PowerPoint, you are essentially connecting them to all programs and platforms connected with your Microsoft account, including OneDrive, all of Office 2016, even your Windows operating system. Wherever used, these connected services help you access your settings and recent files or templates across all your devices, including laptops, tablets, and even smartphones. Additionally, some services allow you to access media and document files.

We start with something unusual: how you can draw a petal shape in PowerPoint. This result is very easy to achieve, and yet not so obvious. We also provide a video tutorial on creating a petal shape in PowerPoint. We then bring you a review of Wondershare Filmora, a new video editing program. You can also learn how to identify the version and license of the PowerPoint instance installed on your computer. We cover this tutorial for Windows users; a similar tutorial for Mac users has already been provided. And finally, PowerPoint MVP Nolan Haims pays his tribute to Hans Rosling by sharing a technique that lets you morph between bubble charts in PowerPoint. In the Tutorials section, PowerPoint 2016 users can learn about the types of vertexes, also known as points. You will encounter points when you edit shapes. In this same series, we also show opening and closing paths, and curved/straight line segments. We also show you how you can insert pictures from Bing and Flickr, right inside PowerPoint.

Convert SmartArt Graphic to Text in PowerPoint 2016

Convert SmartArt Graphic to Text in PowerPoint 2016

One of PowerPoint’s amazing options is the feature that lets you convert your existing bulleted text to a SmartArt graphic. Many times, though, you might want to do the reverse; that is converting SmartArt back to bulleted text. When Microsoft introduced SmartArt in PowerPoint 2007, this reverse conversion was not possible but in later versions, Microsoft added this ability. Follow these steps to do the conversion of SmartArt to bulleted text in PowerPoint 2016. Do note though that you will be left with just plain text rather than any shapes or visuals.

Pictures have an important role in presentation slides since they add imagination and visualization to your slides. To make pictures more impactful, you can even apply borders and effects to them, and also try some Picture Styles that PowerPoint offers. Other than these options, there is one more option that works in the same way as how you convert text to SmartArt. This is the Picture Layout option that similarly converts selected pictures into SmartArt.

TED Talks: Hans Rosling

OK, the title of this post is missing an important word, but I won't tell you about the missing word right away. First, let us remember Hans Rosling, who died on 7 February 2017 aged 68. He was an amazing speaker, and his TED talks have been viewed many times. He was also known for his non-profit organization, Gapminder, which he founded with his son Ola and daughter-in-law Anna. Hans Rosling played with data by literally moving data with his hand gestures in fascinating ways.

Insert Picture from Flickr in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

There are many, many options as far as inserting pictures from online sources within PowerPoint are concerned. Other than using the Bing Image Search options, you can also access Flickr. Flickr is probably the greatest online resource for pictures uploaded by photographers and enthusiasts all over the world. However, unlike with the Bing option, PowerPoint does not allow you to simply go and insert anyone's Creative Commons licensed pictures from Flickr.
