We first look at PowerPoint makeovers, and why each makeover is different. We look at a strategy that will help you approach your makeovers better. We have a special series on Themes and templates for Microsoft Office, including PowerPoint. We first explore the evolution of Themes and then explore where you can look for built-in Themes. We then look at where your custom Office Themes are saved in various Office versions on both Windows and Mac.

PowerPoint 2016 for Windows users can learn about using RGB colors and adding Places to open and save files. PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users can explore resizing text boxes and formatting Picture placeholders in layouts. PowerPoint 2013 users will learn to add Places to open and save files. And if that wasn’t enough for this week, make sure you do not miss the quotes, press releases, and templates released in the last seven days.

Slide Layouts are a very useful feature because they let you use a preset arrangement of placeholders repeatedly, resulting in consistent looking slides. And yes, you can also create your own custom Slide Layouts. While very few users create their own custom Slide Layouts, even fewer will create a custom Slide Layout for pictures! That’s regrettable since Picture Slide Layouts can make your slides look so unique. In this tutorial, we will show you how easy it is to create your own Picture Slide Layout in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.

TJ Walker
 
TJ Walker is the founder of Media Training Worldwide and has been conducting public speaking training workshops and seminars since 1984. Walker has trained Presidents of countries, Prime Ministers, Nobel Peace Prize winners, Super Bowl winners, U.S. Senators, Miss Universes and Members of Parliament.

His book, “Secret to Foolproof Presentations” was a USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Business Week Bestseller. Walker has made more than 2000 network TV and radio appearances on CBS, ABC, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, CNN, Bloomberg TV. In 2009, Walker entered the Guinness Book Of World Records for most talk show appearances ever in a 24 hour period. He is also a past president of the National Speakers Association, New York City.

In this conversation, TJ talks about his new Udemy course, Complete Presentation Skills Masterclass for Every Occasion.

Geetesh: TJ, you just introduced your new course on Udemy called Complete Presentation Skills Masterclass for Every Occasion. Who can benefit from this course?

TJ: This is a monster 27.5-hour video-based course designed to cover all aspects of public speaking and delivering presentations. Students can pick and choose what is most relevant to them, so there are sections for beginners, those who have fear of presenting as well as aspiring professional speakers and those wanting to prepare a TED Talk. The course is also designed for serious professionals in the communication space who are interested in how a high-level presentation training business is run and about my experiences training world leaders from six continents over the last 30 years. If someone wants personalized feedback and critiques on their presentation skills, all they have to do is post video of themselves speaking into the course. I personally critique every presentation posted. So this is a hands-on training experience, not just a passive sit-back-and casually-watch-videos-while-checking-Facebook-experience.

Geetesh: Tell us about the special offer you are providing to Indezine readers, and is this really free? Do you want something from them?

TJ: Lifteime access to the course is normally a one-time fee of $199.00. There is NO charge for Indezine readers if they use the link provided here, and use the coupon code GEETESH

Indezine readers are an influential group of presentation professionals. I am offering the course free of charge to any of your readers. This is a lifetime offer, and there will never be a charge and they do not have to give a credit card to receive access to the entire course.

I do want something from the Indezine readers. I want their mind space. I want their thoughts and perspectives on what they like about the course and also want they would like to see changed or improved. And I would like solid, thoughtful reviews of my course. The course has just soft launched this week, so thoughtful, series reviews from Indezine readers are worth their weight in gold from a long=term perspective for this course.

Get the course now, and use coupon code GEETESH.

Assuming someone has provided you with an HSL (Hue, Saturation, and Luminosity) value of a color, and asked you to add a rectangle of that color to a slide, then how do you proceed? Let’s also explore another scenario. What if you have started with a color that’s close enough to what you need, but it’s not the exact one. Maybe you need it to be a little less saturated? Again, you will benefit by working with the HSL color model rather than the RGB model.

Have you wondered where the Themes and templates you save from within PowerPoint or other Office applications are located? Remember that your custom Themes and templates location is different than the location where PowerPoint’s built-in Office Themes are saved. The location for these Themes and templates is important because you may want to share these with colleagues, clients, friends, or family. If you know where you can find these Themes and templates, you can make sure that they are copied to corresponding folders on other computers.

When you are working with multiple pictures on a slide, their position, formatting, and size may be required to be the same across successive slides. This can be achieved manually using resizing and aligning options, although you will use an inordinate amount of time making sure that the pictures look consistent slide after slide. Even then, there are chances you may not be too happy with the results or the time it takes to make these changes. You can get over this problem by using a new Slide Layout with a picture placeholder. As we learned in previous tutorials, a placeholder is a container that you can use to fill in with all sorts of content types such as text, pictures, charts, SmartArt graphics, etc.
