Once you apply transition effects to your slides, you can tweak the actual transition effect aplenty. We have already explored how you can edit the duration and timing of any transition effect, and even add a transition sound that will play transition takes place. In addition, you can also play with some more options providing more control over the transition effect applied to the slide. These are all placed in a single broad category called Effect Options. These Effect Options, as the very name indicates are related to the individual transition effects, and options may differ for each effect. Additionally, some transition effects such as Flash, Dissolve, and Honeycomb may be devoid of any Effect Options altogether.

Note that your Effect Options gallery may look different than what you see in Figure 2 because each transition effect has its own unique set of effect options. For this tutorial, you are aware that we chose a slide that had the Reveal transition effect applied. So, you can see the four effect options related to the Reveal transition effect in Figure 2.
