Create your slides This is a glimpse of the PowerPoint workspace. Get an introduction to it, so you feel comfortable working there.
Get to know your workspace Slide Pane: is the main frame on which you perform everything Placeholders: can contain Text, Pictures, Charts and other non-text items. Thumbnails: are left side of your presentations highlighted with the current slide. You can Navigate your slide through these thumbnails. Notes Pane: are in the bottom of your slide where you write your personal references.
Add new slides When PowerPoint opens, there's only one slide in the show. If you click the top part of the button, where the slide icon is, a new slide is added immediately, beneath the slide that's selected in the Slides tab. If you click the bottom part of the button, you get a gallery of layouts for the slide. You choose a layout, and the slide is inserted with that layout. If you add a slide without choosing a layout, PowerPoint applies one automatically.
Pick layouts for slides The Title Slide layout: is shown here which is normally applied to first slide. Title Slide: Contains two placeholders for a title and subtitle. Title & Contents: The layout we use throughout the whole slide. Title & Contents Layout: has a placeholder for the slide title, and a second, all-purpose placeholder.
Type your text You can use different levels: of text within bulleted lists to make minor points under major points. On the Ribbon: use commands in the Font group to change character formatting, such as font color and size. Use commands: in the Paragraph group to change paragraph formatting, such as list formatting, degree of text indentation, and line spacing.
Insert slides from another presentation New Slide: On the Home tab, click the arrow next to New Slide, Reuse Slides: Below the layout gallery, click Reuse Slides. Reuse Slide Pane: Allows you to use an old presentation or Slide library for the current presentation. Keep Source Formatting: Just click the small checkbox if you want to maintain the old slide format. Click Your Slide: just click the slide you want to copy to this presentation and it will copy.
Create speaker notes Speaker’s Notes: As you develop the content on your slides, type your notes in the notes pane, below the slide. Enlarge Notes: You can enlarge the notes pane so that it's easier to work in by dragging the split bar. Notes Page: Your notes are saved in a notes page
The beauty of themes A theme includes these elements, offered as a package: Background design Color scheme Font types and sizes, and Placeholder positions
Choose a theme To find and apply a theme, click the Design tab on the Ribbon. Theme samples: In design tab you will find different themes as in picture. Additional themes: you can see small button next to the themes. Preview: When you point to any theme thumbnail, a preview can be seen in the slide automatically.
Insert pictures and things: 1 Clip Art: Click the Clip Art icon in the placeholder. Task Pane: The Clip Art task pane opens. There, type a keyword in the Search for box that suggests the sort of clips you want, and click Go. Clips: Appear that fit the keyword. Click one of them to insert it into the slide.
Insert pictures and things: 2 Text boxes are handy when you want to add text somewhere and need another placeholder for it, such as for a picture caption. First, you'd click Text Box on the Insert tab. And then, you'd draw the box on the slide and type in it
Edit slide elements So, select the picture. Picture Tools appear above the Ribbon. Use options on the Format tab to work with the picture.
Arrange slide elements You use the Arrange commands to align slide elements. To align the caption so it's flush left with the picture, first select both placeholders. Find the Arrange group on the Format tab, in Picture Tools. Click the Align button, and then click Align Left.
