Learn PowerPoint 2007 for Windows: Change the Default Template or Theme

When PowerPoint is launched, it opens with an empty presentation of just one slide.

Learn PowerPoint 2007: Add Trigger for Sound and Movie Actions

Slides with interactivity work great in scenarios where the presentation in question is not linear in which slides advance one after the other at set timings.

Learn PowerPoint 2007: Trigger Animations

When you are presenting, you may come across a scenario where you want to click on one slide object to animate some other object.

Learn PowerPoint 2007: Animation Sounds

The main purpose of adding animation to any slide object is to draw the attention of the audience to some movement.

PixSwap: The Indezine Review

While PowerPoint 2003 and previous versions provided you with an option to recolor your pictures easily, this option was removed in PowerPoint 2007 and also did not make it to the subsequent PowerPoint 2010.
