Okay, the title is a bit misleading for this one. It is not so much the presenter notes that are improved, but rather the way you open/close the presenter notes.
Here is my sample slide, which is not showing the Presenter Notes:
New in PPT 2013 is the addition of a NOTES button on the bottom of the UI.
Click the NOTES button and the Presenter Notes open – no need to fiddle with positioning the cursor and getting the double arrow cursor so you can click and drag to raise up and open the Presenter Notes.
Smart Guides were introduced in PowerPoint 2010 and are a great feature. PowerPoint 2013 has made the good tool even more usable. Smart Guides can now visually show when shapes are equally spaced apart from one another.
This feature is easier to see than explain, so here is a demo showing 6 boxes being aligned and equally spaced (and another great selection of background music).
Wanda, one of our talented TLC Creative designers, developed this great Halloween themed template we are sharing with everyone.
The template is native to PPT 2010, 16×9 aspect ratio and features several layouts including a great animated title slide (Note: All elements on the title slide from the background to the cauldron and hat were created in PowerPoint).
Some projects are perfect for PowerPoint even if they have nothing to do with a presentation. As example, I have completed dozens of website mockups for the sales team at TurnTo. Using a combination of SnagIt, Photoshop, and PowerPoint I can quickly develop an animated mockup of a webpage experience that provides an example of how the TurnTo technology could be implemented on a website.
This video shows a PowerPoint presentation that is a mockup of a demo webpage – all with no HTML/CSS coding. Just one example of using PowerPoint outside of the presentation world and allowing me to work smarter and providing faster and more economical results for clients.
Marketing presentations for Pixar properties are always fun! In this slide, I was provided art from Toy Story 2 with the instructions to make it lively for the product introduction.
Here is the slide with is composed of 3 animated images:
1. The background image (picture 7) is oversize and uses a short motion path to make the sky move as Woody flies by.
2. The first instance of Woody flying is the image on the right (picture 4), which uses a custom motion path.
3. Finally, Woody flies back and stops in the middle of the slide with a simple Fly In animation.
Note: Images for this presentation are provided by client and cannot be distributed (so the editable slide is not available, sorry).
