PowerPoint is all about pictures. When you use images in your presentation slides, you can impress the audience and have a better effect on them. Text and words are boring. So you need to learn the tricks to use images in PowerPoint. Here, with the help of T.J. Walker, I want to teach you some tricks to use auto design and screenshots in PowerPoint.
1- Auto design with pictures
One of the most interesting tools for saving time and energy in the PowerPoint is auto design. For this approach let’s go to a new, blank slide. And here we can add our new image. At the right side, you can see a few ideas about design. For example, the first one fits the slide size or in this design, the PowerPoint make a border for an image or here you can see the image in gray scale.
the interesting part of the auto design is for slides with multiple images. if you add one more image you can see more beautiful ideas in auto design panel and you can choose each of them.
now let’s add one more image and let’s see new designs.
Also, you can see new design ideas with four images. I know this part can help you to design your presentation faster and easier.
Now you’ve learned one of the parts in “how to use auto design and screenshots in PowerPoint”. let’s go to the next trick.
If you want to add a picture from your computer into your slides, this lesson can help you. we call this picture, screenshots.
PowerPoint has a great tool for making screenshots. Let’s make a new slide, click on insert, and choose screenshot and click on screen clipping.
After a few seconds, PowerPoint will minimize itself and you can choose the area for screen clipping by dragging. For example, in this case, I want to take a screenshot in my slide from Microsoft to show how you can add an automatic table of contents.
I choose this toolbar or even the whole of the page based on my need. And I choose this area and can see this part in your slides as a picture so I resize it to fit the page.
Now that you have learned how to use auto design and screenshots in PowerPoint, I hope you can create much better presentation slides and have a more impressive effect on your audience.
