We look at how you can Apply Two or More Animations to One Object at the Same Time in PowerPoint. We also invite you to a PowerPoint Shortcut Secrets for 2019 webinar by Taylor Croonquist. We also explore the different Flowchart symbols, and what they mean.
PowerPoint users of all versions can learn about Drawing Arcs. PowerPoint 2013 for Windows users can explore Creating Semi-Circles and Character Spacing. PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users can learn about Adding Slide Background Fill to Shapes. 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 week.
PowerPoint provides plenty of options to format Shape Outlines, and this tutorial explores an attribute that’s rarely associated with shape outlines but can provide a surprisingly different look, especially when applied to lines that are thicker in weight. This attribute, Gradient Outlines is not accessible from the Shape Outline gallery in the Ribbon but directly from the Format Shape Task Pane.
We have a bunch of Photoshop tutorials that are geared towards PowerPoint users, but even otherwise, these can be very helpful to many other users. We look at PNG cutouts, creating gradients in Difference mode, TIFF and Alpha channel export, Reticulation and Gaussian Blur effects, plus using shapes from Illustrator.
You have already learned how to add different fills for shapes. Just like the Pattern fill option, there is one more hidden shape fill option which you can’t access from the Shape fill gallery, yet this is one of those fantastic PowerPoint features that you have to use to believe! The Slide Background fill option is different from other shape fill options because instead of filling something into the selected shape, it makes the slide background area behind the shape visible into the selected shape.
We bring back our Star Wars style credit animation in PowerPoint. You can download this presentation and change the text in the animated text boxes as required! We also look at a beginner tutorial that explains how you can Use Macros and Scripts in PowerPoint. We also explore Creating PowerPoint Slide Backgrounds in Photoshop.
PowerPoint 2016 for Windows users can learn about Slide Show View. PowerPoint 2016 for Mac users can explore Adding Commands to Custom Groups, and the Quick Access Toolbar. 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 week.
