Smallest Font Size for Slides

Smallest Font Size for Slides

Most PowerPoint designers love to have white space on their slides, but there will always be demands from clients to include more and more content. Now, this is not a great idea because slides need to be aesthetic and focused–and adding so much more textual or any other content negates the very idea of well-designed slides. Adding extra content is, therefore, a compromise that you should avoid. In the real world, there will be many reasons to cram this content, and the immediate result is that designers have to use a font size that’s smaller than what they started with. But really speaking, what is the smallest font size that you can use?

Poster Frames for Videos in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Poster Frames for Videos in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

After inserting a video within your presentation, you may see a blank/black rectangle instead—caused by the file format of the video clip inserted on the slide. Not all the formats show these blank/black rectangles. In fact, you may also see the first frame of the video clip in some cases. However, if you do see this blank/black rectangle, do note that it may look professional. With PowerPoint's Poster Frame option, you can easily overcome this limitation, and change the black rectangle to a picture of your choice by selecting a frame from the video itself, or even a picture from a different source.
