PowerPoint Concept Slides: Organic Shapes
Drawing a perfect oval with just a pencil on paper is easier than drawing a perfect circle – but remove the
word “perfect”, and your drawing becomes less stressful – to you and also to whoever your audience may be!
And then dawned the computer era – where everything was so “perfect” again – with flawless curves,
reflecting unflawed geometry! Do you yearn for the imperfection? You can easily achieve this hand drawn look with our Organic
Ovals and Honeycombs are just two of the common shapes that we doodled on paper – and then reproduced as native
PowerPoint shapes for you to use. All put together, our Organic Shapes collection contains 8 shape types –
each type has 10 variants – so you end up with 80 hand-drawn shape options! These shapes will help break the monotony of
text heavy slides, and assist you in explaining difficult concepts better to your audiences. Using these organic shapes also
convinces your audiences that you care enough about them to make the slides look appealing and comprehensible. What's more,
these shapes are also so much fun to use!
This product is priced at $10+.

Use a Mini Mini-Story to Tell Your Audience About Yourself: by Claudyne Wilder
You may be delivering a scientific paper, explaining to the
salespeople how the new system will change the way they place orders, or reporting on a project that no one really
understands. When you stand up in front of an audience with people who have no idea who you are, you need to let them
in on you as a person.

Using Custom Textures as Fill for Text
While choosing texture fills for your text, you need not limit yourself to the default textures that PowerPoint offers.
Third party custom textures are always an option, including our own Scribble Custom Textures that provide your text with
an organic look, as if someone scribbled lines with a pencil to fill them!
Pattern Fill for Text
Do you want to create some text that needs to be printed in black and white? Or maybe you need some text that has awesome contrast
-- the Pattern fill that
lets you add contrast -- and is yet different from the regular solid fills.
Text outlines in PowerPoint are the borders around your text that can be used to make your slide titles, or sub-titles to look
prominent and stylish. PowerPoint's Text
Outline option provides you with plenty of editing options for your text outlines, follow these steps to explore more.
Learn PowerPoint 2010 for Windows
Once a picture is inserted within PowerPoint, any manipulations you make to that picture are strictly only on the surface.
The appearance of the picture changes on the slide, but the unaltered picture is stored within your PowerPoint presentation.
Essentially that's good because if you make many changes to a picture -- and then regret experimenting -- then you can
just reset your picture rather than starting all over again! There's one caveat though -- the option to reset any picture
back to its original form works only if you have not run any compression options for your presentation.
Show Hidden Files and Folders in Windows
To perform some
tasks within Windows, you must be able to see all files and the folders -- but there are chances that some of your files or
folders may be hidden -- this may not be so obvious and fortunately it's easy to overcome this limitation. By default,
all versions of Windows hide at least some files and folders -- in this article, we'll show you how you can unhide
these files or folders within Windows 8, 7, Vista, and XP.
Learn how to make the
hidden files and folders visible in Windows 8, 7, Vista, and XP
