|Major topics in this course include:
- Drawing & Objects
- More with Images
- Slide Transitions
- Miscellaneous Tips & Tricks
We will begin this class by learning more about
the Drawing Toolbar, and working with Drawing Objects. We'll talk
about the Grid and Guidelines, learn more about AutoShapes,
transparency, colors & folls, rotations, arrowheads, and more.
We'll learn about different drawing techniques,
such as bring-to-front and send-to-back, how to group and
ungroup collections of objects, align and distribute, rotate and
flip, and nudge.
We'll take a few minutes to talk about using
WordArt in PowerPoint. Yes, I cover WordArt in detail in my Word
classes, but here I'll just show you how to use it in your slides.
Next we'll learn just about everything there is to
know about using pictures and other images in PowerPoint. We'll
learn how to convert from color to grayscale or black & white, washout,
brightness and contrast, cropping, and rotations. We'll learn how to
compress our images so our PowerPoint files don't get huge. We'll
learn how to create images with transparent backgrounds, and lots more.
Next we'll learn all about the different Slide
Sorter options. We'll cover the Outlining Toolbar in depth. Then we'll
study Slide Transitions where you can have different effects like
fades and wipes take place when you move from slide-to-sllide in your
Vertical Blinds Transition
We'll learn how to hide slides, and set up
custom shows, so you can give different presentations to different
audiences. We'll learn about Slide Timings, so you can
have your slides advance at specific intervals. Lots more.
Next, we have a ton of miscellaneous topics to
cover that didn't fit into other lessons. We'll learn about password
protecting your presentations, other PowerPoint templates,
AutoRecover information, presentation tips (like blanking the screen,
using the pen to write stuff on the screen, etc.) See the
Teacher's Outline for a complete list of everything we cover. Too much
to list here!
