Making your point more powerful

November 18, 2004

As a presenter, I like using PowerPoint. Although I don’t like having the slides in a fixed sequence, and I worry that dimming the lights will give my audience unneeded assistance in falling asleep, I do like the way PowerPoint enables me to emphasize and illustrate my points with highlighted text, graphs, and photos. There’s something about those big, fat, color letters that makes the words more interesting.

Dr. Stephen Wilbers explains more.

Recolor Images in PowerPoint

November 1, 2004

Access Fill Effects

One of PowerPoint's most well hidden secrets is its ability to recolor images. Of course you can recolor vector clip art, but PowerPoint does have the ability to recolor bitmap images as well. That ability was never exposed in PowerPoint, but it's something you can use in Publisher. What deserves mention here is the fact that both PowerPoint and Publisher use the same OfficeArt engine as do most of the other Microsoft Office applications.

We'll explore two ways to recolor images in PowerPoint. The first procedure does everything within PowerPoint but is limited to recoloring images that are part of the background in a slide master. The second procedure uses copy and paste between Publisher and PowerPoint to recolor all sorts of images.
