A Broken PowerPoint Culture

Cliff Atkinson

Unfortunately it’s not just NASA and Boeing that find their cultures both reflected and crippled by this seemingly benign presentation graphics tool. Like huge mirrors hanging on the walls, PowerPoint is an open secret that lays bare the inner thoughts of every organization. For anyone who has the eyes to see, every title, bullet point, image, transition and animation reveals volumes about the tone and tenor of the organization, its openness to creativity and innovation, and its tolerance for thinking and presenting inside and outside of the organizational box.

In this post, Cliff Atkinson explains why the price that every organization pays for bad PowerPoint is incalculable. He looks at transforming PowerPoint to make it a reflection of an organization’s positive attributes.

Working with Guides in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Let’s start with the basics, what are Guides? Consider Guides as a Grid on your slide that you create. Each single Guide can be moved, added, or deleted. Guides also have snap options that are always on. Once the Guides are made visible on the slide, all objects that venture close enough to them just snap. Along with Rulers and Gridlines, Guides help you position your slide objects with more precision, and you can make them work for you.

Bitmaps and Vector Graphics

Bitmaps and Vector Graphics

July 20, 2018

Have you wondered why some pictures show jaggies on the edges when they are resized larger. Or why some pictures don’t show jaggies when enlarged? Those jaggies have more to do with the type of graphics you’re resizing, and broadly speaking, there are two types of computer graphics: bitmaps and vector graphics. If you use graphics often, understanding these two formats, their differences, and how they are created is essential. To put in a nutshell, bitmap graphics get the jaggies when they are resized. And vector graphics can be resized to any extent without the pixelated jaggies.

Learn about the differences between Bitmaps and Vector Graphics.
