What you will learn at Tuesday’s webinar:
How do you crop the background out of photos, leaving behind an irregular shape like a coffee cup, stop sign or even a human being? Here's one way, using the drawing tools in PowerPoint. Guest blogger Bruce Gabrielle shows you how.
Five math whizzes from the same city go to Harvard to study business and only one becomes a CEO of his own company. You want to use visuals in your PowerPoint presentation to help tell their story to budding entrepreneurs at an upcoming event.
In this short video, Bruce Gabrielle shows you how to use the Transitions and Artistic Effects features in PowerPoint to make parts of an image fade into the background and another part come into focus.
In PowerPoint 2010, you can remove a background from a picture to accent or highlight the subject of the picture or to remove distracting detail. This post shows you how to do that by using Remove Background button, cropping an image, and more.
PowerPoint has a lot of great pre-set shapes, but sometimes what you really need is a tailor-made shape for your presentation. If you’re looking to go beyond the Freeform Tool and create more complex custom shapes, there's a feature called Combine Shapes in PowerPoint 2010 that helps you do just that! It uses the principles of Boolean Geometry, to help you create new shapes by combining multiple shapes in one of four ways: Union, Combine, Subtract, or Intersect.
When all your slides look alike, your entire message can be blurred. At the end of your presentation, you want your audience to remember your main points most, and if they remember some of the details, that's a plus. By making key slides distinctive, you can help people follow and retain the content in your presentation. PowerPoint MVP Ellen Finkelstein shares her PowerPoint layout tips.

Several months ago, The New York Times published an article called "We Have Met the Enemy and He Is PowerPoint." Of course we didn't agree. And it looks like PowerPoint blogger Kit Seeborg didn't either. His post Dear PowerPoint: It's not you, it's me gathers tips from PowerPoint experts on creating presentations that go beyond snooze.
PowerPoint experts are always sharing tips with each other, including how to improve each other's presentations.Presentation designer Krzysztof Baszton contacted Bruce Gabriel to show him more elegant ways to print white lines in PowerPoint than the ones Bruce presented in his previous video.
Back in the day, clear and concise text was the key to a good presentation. But the game has changed. People expect your slides to dance. Well, not really dance, but they certainly expect some animation here and there. That's why we've added two new lessons on PowerPoint animations to our PowerPoint skills builder--a free video training series.
