You know the drill. The teams are assembled for a mandatory meeting on some subject or another. The speaker takes front and center, and behind him, a PowerPoint presentation that looks like it’s been with him since the 90s.

Video Shapes in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

When you insert a video clip within a PowerPoint slide, you'll find it placed as a traditional rectangular shape. And that's what most users expect, as it seems safe and conventional. However, PowerPoint allows you to have your video playing in different shapes such as a circle or oval, or a wave, a triangle, or any of the shapes that PowerPoint's Shapes gallery includes. However, just the fact that a video can be placed within a shape is no reason to forego the conventional rectangle. Do remember that most other shapes may crop out important parts of your video clips.

Line Charts in PowerPoint

July 17, 2017

Line Charts in PowerPoint

Line charts can display continuous data over time, set against a common scale, and are therefore ideal for showing trends in data at equal intervals. In a line chart, category data is distributed evenly along the horizontal axis, and all value data is distributed evenly along the vertical axis. Line charts are best used to represent evenly spaced values such as months, quarters, or fiscal years.

Learn about Line Charts, and how you can use them within PowerPoint.

Crop Video in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Once you insert a video in your slide, you can crop it in almost the same way you crop a picture. The Crop option allows you to remove non-required areas of a video. For example, if the subject of your video is a speaker surrounded by a large, distracting background of other people or moving objects, you may want to crop the video so that the cropped video now focuses more on the speaker, and gets rid of all the extra distractions.
