Manage and Load Add-ins in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows

Manage and Load Add-ins in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
Learn to manage and load add-ins in PowerPoint 2010.
Diamond Indezine's insight:
PowerPoint add-ins are awesome, small mini-programs that patch inside PowerPoint to extend abilities. While most add-ins automatically show up inside PowerPoint, some of them need to be loaded manually. And there may be times when you want to disable an add-in rather than completely uninstalling it. It's possible to view, load and manage add-ins manually within PowerPoint, as we will show you in this tutorial.

Find Substituted Fonts in PowerPoint

Find Substituted Fonts in PowerPoint | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
Learn how you can find out the actual name of the font that PowerPoint used to substitute the original font.
Diamond Indezine's insight:
The situation is familiar: you or someone else uses a non-standard font (not a PowerPoint safe font) in your presentation. You then open this same presentation on another computer, and PowerPoint uses another font to display the same text. Why does it do so? The reason is simple enough: the font originally used is not available on the other system. The end user has no idea that PowerPoint substituted one font with another. There is no information provided at all. The font that is used as a substitute cannot be identified. If you have 500 fonts on your system, there’s no way to understand why PowerPoint used a certain font as a substitute.

Insert Pictures in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Insert Pictures in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
Learn how to insert a picture on a slide in PowerPoint 2016.
Diamond Indezine's insight:
It is true that both pictures and words are important, and they both play complementary roles. If you had to choose just one of them; then seeing is a much more important part of presenting. Presentations, by their very nature, are meant to be seen since they evoke actions such as project, display, or broadcast; and all of these actions represent visual media. Text and speaking are important too, but you can be more effectively heard and remembered if your content includes both text and pictures. Adding pictures to your PowerPoint 2016 slide is a great way to add some visual detail.

PowerPoint 2013 Tutorials - Working with Custom Groups in Ribbon Tabs in PowerPoint 2010

PowerPoint 2013 Tutorials - Working with Custom Groups in Ribbon Tabs in PowerPoint 2010 | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
Explore working with Custom Groups within Ribbon Tabs in PowerPoint 2010.
Diamond Indezine's insight:
All Ribbon tabs in PowerPoint 2010 may have any number of buttons that represent commands but they are not scattered all over the tab area. In fact, all of them are neatly arranged together in Groups. Each of these Groups has a name that describes what the commands within that Group do. For example, the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon has a group named Set Up. This contains all commands that help you set up your slide show, such as changing show settings, hiding slides, rehearsing and recording slide shows, etc. It is only sensible to imagine that you should use this Group concept while creating custom Ribbon tabs. In fact, PowerPoint will not let you add any command anywhere else other than within a custom Group.

Working with pictures in PowerPoint 2013 can be so much fun and fulfilling at the same time.

Change Picture in PowerPoint 2013

Change Picture in PowerPoint 2013 | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
Learn how to change (replace) one picture into another in PowerPoint 2013.
Diamond Indezine's insight:
Imagine you have inserted a picture in PowerPoint 2013, and then you applied various picture editing options to enhance its appearance. For example, you may have added a border, applied some Picture Effects, etc. Probably, you then added both Fade and Zoom animations, synced them to happen together, and also timed the animations to occur at a particular speed. You may find yourself often doing these same tasks: adding all sorts of picture edits and animating them. And then you realize that you have a better picture, or your boss asked you to change the existing picture to another one, but with all the same effects and animations!

Inserting Screenshots in PowerPoint 2013

Inserting Screenshots in PowerPoint 2013 | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
Explore the Screenshot option within PowerPoint 2013.
Diamond Indezine's insight:
By its very nature, PowerPoint is an application that takes content of different types and arranges them all together coherently within a slide. Such content often includes text, pictures, charts, multimedia, and other types. Additionally, since many people use PowerPoint for training programs, you will find many slides that contain screenshots of computer program interfaces. Typically, you capture these screenshots in another program and then insert that screenshot like a regular picture within PowerPoint 2013. Many users do not realize that you can add a screenshot from within PowerPoint without the need for another program.

Change One Shape to Another in PowerPoint 2016

Change One Shape to Another in PowerPoint 2016 | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
Learn how to change one shape to another in PowerPoint 2016.
Diamond Indezine's insight:
Shapes tend to be similar to each other. You may work with one shape and then realize that you used the wrong one. Typically, users create a 5 pointed star when they need a star with 4 or 8 points, and that was just one example! Let's explore another scenario: you worked on a shape and applied effects, animations, and fills to this shape. Later you realize that you used a wrong shape, or perhaps the client wants you to change the shape but retain all the effects, animations, and fills! You may want to delete the existing shape and start over again, and that is a long drawn process. However, but you don't have to do that for you can change any existing shape to another by following these steps in PowerPoint 2016.

Learn how to recolor a picture background in PowerPoint 2016.
Diamond Indezine's insight:
Adding a busy, multi-colored picture background to your slides is one of the worst things you can do to your PowerPoint presentation. People do so all the time, and in the process, they compromise the subtlety and contrast of any content on their slides. So why do they do so? As a picture, their chosen content may appear awesome. However, placing the same picture as a backdrop for text, charts, shapes, or other slide objects just work. Fortunately, you can reduce the visual noise in any picture by using the Recolor option within PowerPoint.

Reset Pictures in PowerPoint 2013

Reset Pictures in PowerPoint 2013 | PowerPoint Tutorials | Scoop.it
Learn how to reset pictures in PowerPoint 2013.
Diamond Indezine's insight:
Once a picture is inserted within PowerPoint, any manipulations you make to that picture are strictly only on the surface. The appearance of the picture changes on the slide, but the unaltered picture is stored within your PowerPoint presentation. Essentially that's good because if you make many changes to a picture -- and then regret experimenting -- then you can just reset your picture rather than starting all over again! There's one caveat though -- the option to reset any picture back to its original form works only if you have not run any compression options for pictures within your presentation.

Learn how to apply Artistic Effects to pictures in PowerPoint 2013.
Diamond Indezine's insight:
PowerPoint is a slide program but that doesn't mean that it does not have some cool picture editing tricks up its sleeve. When we say "cool", we certainly do not mean just inserting a picture, or even the fact that you can apply corrections or recolor hues. PowerPoint 2013 provides around 23 filters as part of its Artistic Effects options. Some of these filters (effects) can make your pictures look like paintings or sketches, and others can change the texture of your pictures.
