By Mohd Aktar on Wednesday, 22 May 2013

The PowerPoint presentation is a way of representing ones idea of doing or making anything simple and presentable for the viewers. By doing so, you can impress your teachers, clients, etc. One can even insert pictures to make their PowerPoint presentation interesting and easy to understand. It is of great demand in offices for converting lengthy information’s in a simple way for presenting to the audiences.



 It follows with some basic steps:

1. START

Once you open your PowerPoint presentation you will see a blank page that appears. Which contains a block for giving the title of your topic and the next block is for giving further contents related to your topic/title i.e. subtitle. Deleting or inserting anything from it is quite an easy task.

2. CREATING SLIDES

The second block i.e. the subtitle block is used either to insert a picture or to write text. In case you don’t want to write text in the block but want to insert a picture, go to Insert on the Menu bar and select a picture. But make sure that the picture you want to insert is already saved in a file and then select it from that file respectively. One can even enlarge the picture or even reduce the size of the picture by grabbing the edges with your mouse pointer or by dragging it.

3. NEW SLIDES

 Once you have a specific title ready with you, you can create more pages by writing more about it. As soon as your one slide is completed or you want to switch to another new slide, go to the Menu bar straight at the top of your page and select Insert and New slide. By doing this a new blank slide appears. If you want to add sub-points to make your PowerPoint presentation more attractive, creating a new slide is very important.

4. BULLETS OR PARAGRAPH TEXT

Bullets are used to simply add points or write your text point wise or as a signal indicating different paragraphs.

5. ADDING DESIGNS

Once you finish writing text, you can add designs to your slides to make it a more of a professional type. Select any slide which you had made, then go to Format on the Menu bar and select appropriate design for your slide. The design you select will be set for all the consecutive slides automatically. Care should be taken that your PowerPoint presentation does not contain more of a design that makes your audience ambiguous.

6. WATCH YOUR SLIDE SHOW

You can view your slide show any number of times. To give a final look out before presenting it, make a look by going to View on the Menu bar and select slideshow. By doing so your presentation will appear slide by slide in a proper order .To exit from the slide show click on “Esc” (Escape)key on your keyboard.

7. OTHERS

You can also make use of the various tools available for making PowerPoint presentation as in clip-arts, screen shots, word art, page layouts, etc. to make it more presentable.
