So, what's a Draft Stamp -- it's an easy way to stamp the word "Draft" on all your slides. It's great for those occasions when you have to send an incomplete presentation to someone -- and that someone thinks it is a finished presentation!
We designed this stamp and then made it available as a free members-only download from our site, but then many people wanted to know how they could use it effectively -- and thus this tutorial was born.
If you download the presentation from the link provided above, you'll find that the ZIP file you downloaded contains two files:
- A PowerPoint presentation that contains one slide -- exactly like the graphic above on this page.
- A PNG graphic that can be used anywhere
So how do you use this stamp. It's fairly easy if you follow these steps:
- Create a new PowerPoint presentation or open an existing PowerPoint
- Open the draft presentation that you downloaded, select the
Draft graphic on the slide, and choose Edit | Copy.
- Back in your own Power Point presentation, go to the slide
that you want to mark as a draft.
- Choose Edit | Paste to paste the draft graphic -- you'll now
see a draft watermark.
- Repeat on all slides as required.
