Presentation Management 15: Culture of Presentation Management

Change is hard, especially in a large organization. People are afraid of the unknown. The familiar is our security blanket. Knowing where we will be and what we will be doing tomorrow makes us feel safe. Any effort to change that, especially in our jobs–our livelihoods–will be resisted. This is one of those strange ironies of life. Most of us know that change is imminent, and we still resist change.

This is tagged text, similar in structure and concept to HTML code with which you may already be familiar.

The Three-Slide Approach

Do you even need a presentation containing slides? Many people just create presentations because everyone else does so.

Clearly, both John and Cally had spent quality time creating these decks.

Editing Picture Slides Created With PowerPoint Designer in PowerPoint 365 for Windows

Let's assume that you already used some picture slide layouts from PowerPoint Designer, as explained in our Working With Pictures in PowerPoint Designer in PowerPoint 365 for Windows tutorial. And now, you want to change the picture used, or even add another picture. You'll discover that changing pictures is not too easy, because PowerPoint does not respect the proportions of the picture you are replacing, and almost places a new picture without any concerns about visual aesthetics. So, how can you add another picture in the same position, and ensure that the size and the proportions of the picture also remain the same?
