Thoughts and impressions of happenings in the world of PowerPoint and presentations, continuously updated since 2003.
The General tab of the PowerPoint Options dialog box contains basic, yet some very important options related to the appearance and working of the PowerPoint interface. Changes to these options can result in a very different and more efficient workflow.
In today’s video, we will look at a scenario where you have a company logo placed in your PowerPoint presentation. This logo shows up on all sides. In addition to the company logo, you also have a product logo on some slides. This profusion of logos makes some corporate bosses very happy but there’s a downside. What if you have slide content that’s large and fills up the entire area? Or what if you have a detailed chart and the logo covers up the chart legend?
We first look at how you can send feedback to Microsoft about something you like or don’t like in PowerPoint from right within the application. We then explore how you can attribute Creative Commons Pictures in PowerPoint slides. We also look at attributing multiple pictures on one slide.
We feature two more speakers from the upcoming Presentation Summit conference being held this September. They are Ilene Bergelson and Rick Altman. We also bring you quotes, press releases, and templates from the last few days.
Are you super-delighted about a PowerPoint feature? Or are you so irritated that you are pulling your hair? Depending upon how you are feeling, you might want to reach out to the folks who create PowerPoint to tell them how you feel. And this is not difficult to do at all. You can accomplish this task right within PowerPoint, within the Feedback tab of Backstage view.
Rick Altman has been hired by hundreds of companies, listened to by tens of thousands of professionals, and read by millions of people, all of whom seek better results with their presentation content and delivery. He covers the whole of the industry, from message crafting, through presentation design, slide creation, software technique, and delivery. He is the host of the Presentation Summit, now in its 19th season as the most prominent learning event for the presentation community.
In this conversation, Rick talks about both in-person and virtual conferences in changing times, and how it influences his own upcoming Presentation Summit 2021, being held both virtually and on location in Clearwater Beach, FL, United States this year from September 26 to 29, 2021.
