How to create a presentation on your own on a computer or laptop?

Our step-by-step instructions will tell how to create beautiful presentations using PowerPoint on a laptop or computer. It will show how to insert a video, a picture on the slide, write text and draw diagrams using the built-in visualization tools and add animated transition templates.


  1. Create a good presentation using PowerPoint templates
  2. Create a new presentation with photos, videos and videos
  3. We work with fonts, set up visual design
  4. Create a colorful animation of transitions between slides
  5. Add audio support presentation

In our example, we will use one of the most accessible and convenient programs for creating presentations - PowerPoint included in the Microsoft Office office package (the package also contains an already familiar to each text editor Microsoft Office Word, an Excel tabular processor).

With the external simplicity and minimum time spent on the study of the interface, the program allows you to implement any fantasy on the graphic design of the report, an abstract containing, including a plurality of graphic elements - graphs, schemes, illustrations, clips in any quantities and quickly accompany it with graphic and sound Effects.

When the content and editing of the content is completed, the application will allow you to start the demonstration mode to view the slides of the finished presentation clearly, edit some of them when errors are detected, save to the PC hard drive, print or send to the Microsoft OneDrive Storage (in the new versions of the office package). After performing the recommendations described below, the presentations created by your hands will not differ from high-quality presentations decorated with designers and advertising specialists!

So, proceed. Before creating a presentation, we will have to clearly think about what form of information reporting to the interlocutor we will choose, because the PowerPoint program presents a large number of templates, from a successful choice of which, often depends the success of the presentation.

The most briefly formulate the main theses of the presentation themes on the slides, do not overstepify them with text and complex images. Slides are just a short illustration for your report.

We highly recommend using template samples already created, including templates on, which are automatically tightened by PowerPoint, because the use of template-based presentations significantly saves the time to create a report structure. In addition, the editor allows you to download new templates from the Internet and add them to your database.

The more interesting templates are the already specified structure of your presentation, in which there are selected in style colors of the elements, font size and their color, selected similar formatting of various pages and other parts whose aggregate and forms the overall impression of the presentation.

Make sure the font size, its color, as well as background - are easily readable for the entire audience, including far rows. If on the background of color drawing , Tex and other graphical information becomes difficult to find.

To create a presentation, go to the menu File - Create - Sample patterns And then choose the most suitable from the templates, helping to effectively present the topic and correctly make an accent. In our example, we use the template "advertising booklet".

Note the dialog box with the tabs "Slides" and "Structure" in the left side of the window.

Using the "Structure" button, it is convenient to edit all the text in the resulting presentation, without being distracted by various design.

After selecting a template, in the "Design" tab, you can easily change the preset sets of color solutions by selecting a suitable color scheme to change only appearance, keeping the previous structure of the document.

And of course, the Create Slide commands use to add the first slide and each subsequent desired slide. Step by step.

In the following example, it is shown how it is easy to apply color schemes in an existing document. They will begin to appear immediately after use and help instantly see the effect until editing.

Well, of course, the developers left users wide opportunities for independent design of presentations and hotel slides with drawings and photos that are easy not only to download from a PC or copy from the flash drive, but also to choose on the Internet. In addition to the section "Colors", you can change the styles of the background and generally remove the background drawings, leaving the fill of the document in monophonic color.

Opportunities with fonts in Power Point are absolutely similar to those in the Microsoft Word editor.

We mark the changeable text element to be configured, after which from the list of fonts installed in the system, select the appropriate and specify the main parameters - size, color and formatting.

How best to make a presentation: the optimal font size for the text of the headlines: 22 - 28; The subtitles and numbers are better to choose sizes: 20 - 24; Signatures in the tables and axes of coordinates in charts: 16 - 18; Use fatty font to highlight headers; For reference and additional information it is useful to apply italics.

One of the most favorite users of the methods for reviving the presentation are to dilute it with special effects of the transition between slides. It really adds speakers and enhances the concentration of viewers on the material in the process of the report (the full name of the function "Go to the next slide")

  • To add transitions between slides, go to the "Transitions" tab.
  • Next, select the slides in the left vertical window for which you wish to apply the effect you like - cutting, fading, shift, or a couple of dozens of others, broken in turn to sections - simple effects, complex or dynamic.

Use both mouse buttons - as to select elements, that and to call additional features that are available when you open the drop-down menu with the right mouse button.

To the left of the image of the selected slide will appear an asterisk that informs that the display effect is tied to a separate slide.

By clicking on the field just below the asterisk, you can reproduce the effect of animation in the main window.

  • To configure the animation inside the slide layout, for example, with a gradual display of its contents, use the Animation tab and the Animation Setup command.
  • After selecting the desired effect, click on the object, or the text that needs to give the effect of the animation, after which in the task area "Animation effects" opened on the right side of the screen, click the "Add Animation" button.

In the area of ​​tasks, the effects will be sequentially located in order to add them. Here Yes, you can control the moment of the beginning of animation, direction and speed of execution.

By clicking the "View" button to start the animation, we apply the selected effect to the open slide. If you wish, you can copy it to other slides or impose entirely on the whole project.

To make a presentation in PowerPoint pleasant to perception, do not abuse the added effects when changing frames and during the appearance of new pop-up elements of information on the screen - it distracts from the main theme of the speech and does not contribute to memorizing the material!

Sound can accompany the change of each of the slides and is reproduced when performing a number of conditions.

  • To insert audio in the presentation, in the "Insert" tab on the right side of the panel, select the "Sound" icon, after which it will remain to specify the playable file on the computer in one of the popular formats. Previously, it was WAV files, now you can use more distributed MP3.
  • Next, select the sound playback method - automatically, or after clicking on the slide.

Among the additional parameters, you can set the sound playback duration after the start of playback, playback delay and the loudness of the file.

As background support, it is better to use lightweight quiet music, otherwise your speech will be illegible for listeners. But remember that Pavpoint does not allow you to place one song to the entire project with the condition of cyclical playback. The sound will drop when it is over, so count the timing and use the audio detectors to help handle simple files to glue several songs.

It will only remain to maintain the resulting presentation in a format convenient for you and make sure that it will be sent to e-mail and read on the equipment that is used in the audience. As a rule, the universal format of the presentation files are PPT, (less often PPTX - the latest versions of Microsoft Office) and the good old PDF - it will take a special program to play. Also come up with a little accession in order to profitably serve your material before the audience.

In addition to the details of the Microsoft PowerPoint program, we have prepared a review for you the best programs for creating presentations, including free-distributed Impress, Kingsoft Presentation and others. Besides at delivery, you can use any analogue - Online Services CANVA, Google Presentations, Apple Keynote Editor for computers on MacOS. The principle of operation of all tools is approximately the same.

We wish you good luck in a more vivid expression of thoughts using the keyboard in the form of a presentation!

KAK-SDELAT-PREZENTATSIYUGood time to everyone!

The word "presentation" although it sounds fashionable and loudly, in fact (In most cases) It implies a document of several sheets (slides) with textual and graphics information. (something like a wall-newspaper, which were in everyday life 20-25 years ago, before the start of PC's popularity) .

The main goal is to clearly and briefly demonstrate the results of your work, to convey basic information to the listeners, to submit some kind of project.

Difficulties with its creation, usually arise from those users who have never faced this issue before. In fact, if you start making a presentation on the steps (gradually sacrificing with each element) - then everything is simple enough, and under-force even a completely novice user.

In this note I will present a visual instruction with pictures of each step. To work, you will need such a program as PowerPoint (included in the Microsoft Office set installed on most home PCs) .

How to make a presentation: 10 steps

Note: All screenshots in the article are shown from the PowerPoint 2019 program (as the newest today).

Step 1: Run PowerPoint and create a "empty" presentation

To start PowerPoint in modern Windows 10, it is even completely optional to "find" its shortcut in the "Start" menu - just click on the search icon, and enter into the "POWER" string. Next, if you have this program - you will see its label among the search results (see Example below).

If you have a PowerPoint - then after entering the search for "Power", Windows 10 will find it

If you have a PowerPoint - then after entering the search for "Power", Windows 10 will find it

Start creating a presentation I recommend with "zero" - it will be easier to deal with the main elements of work (To do this, select the option "Empty Presentation") .

Creating a new "empty" presentation

Creating a new "empty" presentation

If no errors have arisen and PowerPoint works correctly, you should see a document that is still only one slide (sheet). See Example below.

First sheet (slide) presentation

First sheet (slide) presentation

You can move on ...


Step 2: Adding new slides (sheets)

Of course, the presentation (most often) It can not consist of one sheet, and you will need to increase their number.

To do this, go to the section "The main" (or "Insert" ), click on the instrument "Create Slide" and select the layout of the sheet that you need (In his example, I stopped at the option "Comparison") .

Creating a second sheet (slide). Please note that the layout of the sheet is different from the first.

Creating a second sheet (slide). Please note that the layout of the sheet is different from the first.

Also, the layout of the sheet can be changed: To do this, select the desired sheet. (Arrow-1 on the screen below) , then click on the tool "Layout" (section "Home") and select a new location of the elements.

If you have incorrectly selected page layout - you can always change it

If you have incorrectly selected page layout - you can always change it

Sheets and their numbers are displayed on the left panel. They can also be changed in places (using the left mouse left button) .

Add the required number of sheets to the presentation (slides)

Add the required number of sheets to the presentation (slides)

Note : Also add a slide using a combination of Ctrl + M buttons.


Step 3: Select the theme and its colors

From registration of the presentation, it is almost half of its success! And in this plan, PowerPoint gives fantasy to raise.

To install a new presentation design - go to the section "Constructor" and choose one of themes (there are a lot of them enough) .

Choose one of the package (which is most suitable for your work)

Choose one of the package (which is most suitable for your work)

I will add that there is also additional shades (lighter, darker) to each topic. Set the shade in the same section "Constructor" (see Screenshot below) .

Please note that in addition to the theme - there are different options for its design.

Note that in addition to the theme - there are different options for its design.


If you are going to print your presentation (or demonstrate it on the projector) - Be careful with the choice of color clearance.

For example, light yellow, pink, and other faded colors can be very badly visible. (especially if you look at your work from a certain distance) .


Step 4: Working with text

In this regard, working with PowerPoint is not much different from the usual Word. Choose a sheet, then the block, and write in it the necessary text (You can insert predetermined information from the same Word) .

To start editing the text in a specific slide block - just click on it ...

To start editing the text in a specific slide block - just click on it ...

Please note that PowerPoint automatically checks the entered text on spelling and punctuation errors. Of course, it finds not everything, but the coarsest will be emphasized by a red wavy line (example on the screen below) .


Pay attention to all underlined words (PowerPoint automatically finds most of the rough mistakes)

In most cases, if you right-click by error - PowerPoint will offer correction options.

To correct the error - just click on it right mouse button

To correct the error - just click on it right mouse button

By the way, the text in the block can be rotated to a certain angle (or to write it vertically).

To turn the text: First, select the block, the arrow will appear above it for the "pull" in the desired side of the left mouse button (block will change its angle as in the example below) .

To rotate the text block - click on the arrow above it

To rotate the text block - click on the arrow above it


Step 5: Inserting pictures, audio and video

For a visual representation of some moments without a media content, just do not do. In PowerPoint, it is possible to insert not only pictures and photos, but also audio, video files.

Tip! Do not insert too many pictures on one slide (sheet). Better Make 2-3 sheets more and insert media files larger (so that they are clearly visible).

And so, to add pictures to your presentation, go to the section "Insert" and click on the tool "Pictures" .

Insert - Pictures / PowerPoint 2019

Insert - Pictures / PowerPoint 2019

The picture you choose will be added to the slide. You will stay to place it in the right place and correct the size. (All this is done with the mouse) .

Next, with the help of the mouse, place a picture (photo) in the right place, adjusting the size ...

Next, with the help of the mouse, place a picture (photo) in the right place, adjusting the size ...

As for adding video and audio: This is done similarly. First select the desired list, then go to the "Insert" section and click on the tool "Multimedia / Video" (or "Multimedia / Sound") .

Insert video or audio is performed equally

Insert video or audio is performed equally

When you insert video, you can also place it in the right place slide (as well as set the width and height of the window) . Please note that specials are displayed under the video. Buttons that allow you to play it and adjust the volume.

So the video is displayed in the presentation

Step 6: Inserting charts, graphs

Charts and charts are very necessary when it is required to show any dependence, calculations, statistics, etc. For clarity, in your example, I'll show you the popularity of some programs in the video recording segment on the circular diagram from the screen.

And so, to add diagrams to the presentation: First select a sheet (slide), then go to the section "Insert" and click on the tool "Diagram" .

Alternative option : If you have a block with a diagram on the sheet layout, you can click immediately on the tool icon (see screen below).

Insertion chart

Insert Chart / PowerPoint 2019

Next, you need to select the chart option (your eyes 👀 👀 here). There are a variety of option: linear, circular, point, petal, etc.

In your example, chose a circular one below.

Chart selection (graphics)

Chart selection (graphics)

After you need to fill out a small data tablet. For example, in my case, this is the name of the program and its popularity in the market in its segment.

Note : How fill in the sign with the diagram data - just close this window.

Filling data

Filling data

Immediately after filling the plate, you will see how the diagram will be built on the slide. Of course, its size (width, height), design and location can be corrected.

The resulting diagram (as an example)

Step 7: Working with Tables

PowerPoint allows you to create tables from scratch (directly on the slide page), so insert ready-made from Excel. I will consider the first option (as the most common).

For a table to your work: select the desired slide, then in the section "Insert" Click on the tool "Table", And specify the desired number of rows and columns.

The table is displayed in real time.

The table is displayed in real time.

Next, with the mouse, you can change the width, height and location of the plate on the sheet (example below).

Fill the table with text in the classic way:

  • manually, feeding the required text from the keyboard;
  • insert (Ctrl + V) from another document.
Note that the table can be stretched and transfer from one place to another

Note that the table can be stretched and transfer from one place to another

PowerPoint has the ability to change table design (for example, you had brown, and you need an orange or blue ...) .

You can do it like this:

  • Select the desired table on the slide (clicking on her mouse) ;
  • In the top menu, follow the link "Working with Table" (see arrow-2 on the screenshot below) ;
  • in the subsection "Styles of tables" Choose a new design.
To change the style of the table ...

To change the style of the table ... / PowerPoint 2019


Step 8: Transitions and Animation

In general, animation and transitions are far from the mandatory thing in the presentation. (especially if you browse the presentation) . However, in some topics it allows you to quite live and diversify it.

For reference! Transition - This is how a new slide appears in the presentation. Probably, everyone saw in various films as some frames "dissolve", others - turn as a sheet of books, third - shifted to the side. As an example, below shows a small gif animation.

Example of transition

Example of transition

And so to add transition, you need:

  1. specify a sheet (slide);
  2. Go to section "Transitions" ;
  3. Select one of the transitions (by the way, PowerPoint will immediately show how it will look);
  4. Next, you need to specify the next sheet and select the transition for it (, etc.).
Selection of transition

Selection of transition

Animation is an analogue of the transition, it is only applied not to the sheet (slide), but to a separate block (text, clip art, video, etc.). Those. Choosing any of the blocks on the page and specify an animation option to it. (see Screenshot below) - You can make it rotating, darling, etc.

Application of animation effects to the picture

Application of animation effects to the picture

Step 9: Demonstration (Launch Slideshow)

When your presentation is ready (It would seem 😉) - Run it out (key F5, or menu "Slideshow / first" ). Next, look at each slide carefully: everything is fine with them, not "left" whether there is a markup, there are no coarse mistakes, etc.

Starting a presentation from the start (F5)

Starting a presentation from the start (F5)

In addition, I highly recommend Set up time show slides. It can help to help relent the presentation, improve your performance and meet the time provided to you.

Time setting (presentation rehearsal)

Setting the slide display time (presentation rehearsal)

Still a couple of tips:

  • Do not smack! In the slide view mode, try to move away from the monitor and see how your text blocks, photos, video materials from the distance look like, whether some blocks do not need to make and make a larger;
  • If you have a second computer / laptop - try to open your presentation on it. Thanks to this, you can "see" some underwater "stones" (How will the color design of your work on another device look like, is there any non-readable blocks, etc.) .

Step 10: Review and verify errors. Preservation

Well, the last touch before saving work is to check it on errors and typos (this is especially true if you have a lot of text, complex terms, etc.).

To verify the presentation : Go to section "Review and click on the tool "Spelling" (or just click on the key F7. ).

Review of spelling check (PowerPoint 2019)

Review of spelling check (PowerPoint 2019)

After that, PowerPoint will begin to show all the errors found alternately (you have to either correct it, or skip). At the end, when the check will be completed, a window must appear. "Spell check is completed. Now everything is in order!" .

Errors not found

Errors not found

In addition to errors, I recommend to start checking readability (located in the section "Review / Special Features") . This check is capable of finding complex proposals that are not very clear in meaning, non-combined words missed headlines, etc.

Check readability

Check readability

In my example, PowerPoint just found the missed headers ...

Please note that there is no header somewhere, the English terms are used (and you should double-check them)

Please note that there is no header somewhere, the English terms are used (and you should double-check them)

After these two checks, you can proceed to the "final" preservation of the presentation ... ✌

Useful software:

  • Video editing
  • Video installation
  • Excellent software to start creating their own videos (all actions go down the steps!). Video will make even newcomer!
  • Utility for optimization
  • Computer accelerator
  • The program for cleaning Windows from garbage (speeds up the system, deletes the garbage, optimizes the registry).

In today's article, we will consider in detail how to make a presentation, what problems arise in the manufacture of which you should pay attention to. We will analyze some subtleties and tricks.

In general, what is it? Personally, would give a simple definition - this is a brief and visual representation of information that helps the speaker to reveal the essence of his work in more detail. Now they use not only businessmen (as before), but also simple students, schoolchildren, and in general, in many areas of our life!

As a rule, the presentation consists of several sheets, which represent images, diagrams, tables, a brief description.

And so, let's start to deal with all this detail ...

Main components

The main program for work is a Microsoft PowerPoint (and, and it is on most computers, since it comes together complete with Word and Excel).

Next you need high-quality material: text, pictures, sounds, possibly video. Slightly touched on the topic, where all this takes ...

How to make a presentation - step-by-step guide

An example of a presentation.


The best option, if you yourself in the presentation and can yourself write text from personal experience. For listeners, it will be interesting and fascinating, but this option is not suitable for everyone.

You can do with books, especially if you have a good collection on the shelf. Text from books can be scanned and recognized, and then transfer to Word format. If you do not have books, or there are few them, you can use electronic libraries.

In addition to books, there may be a good option abstracts, perhaps even those that you themselves wrote and passed earlier. You can use popular sites from the catalog. If you collect a few interesting abstracts on the necessary subject - there may be an excellent presentation.

Not excess will simply search the article on the Internet in various forums, blogs, sites. Very often come across excellent materials.

Pictures, Schemes, Graphics

Of course, the most interesting option would be your personal photos that you did in the process of preparing for writing a presentation. But you can do and search Yandex. In addition, there is no time and opportunity for this.

Graphs and schemes can be drawn by yourself if you have any regularities, or you considered something by the formula. For example, for mathematical calculations, there is an interesting program for making graphs Graph.

If you can not find a suitable program, the schedule can be written and manually, draw in Excel, or simply on the sheet of paper, and then take pictures or scan it. Many options ...


Remove high-quality video - it's not easy, and even cost. One camcorder is not for everyone to pocket, and you still need to correctly process the video. If you have such an opportunity - use it. And we will try to try to do ...

If the video quality can be somewhat neglected - a mobile phone will be completely for recording (in many "middle" chambers of mobile phones). Some things can be removed to them to show in detail some particular thing that is difficult to explain in the picture.

By the way, many popular things have already removed someone and you can find them on YouTube (or on other video hosting).

And one more interesting video creation option - it can be recorded from the monitor screen, and add more and sound, such as your voice telling what is happening on the monitor screen.

Perhaps, if you all already have the above and lies on your hard disk, you can begin to make a presentation, more precisely to its design.

How to make a presentation in PowerPoint

Before switching to the technical part, I would like to dwell on the most important plan of the presentation (report).


Whatever your presentation is - without your speech, it is just a set of pictures and text. Therefore, before you start doing, decide on your performance plan!

First, who will be the listeners of your report? What are their interests that they would have liked it. Sometimes success depends more not from completeness of information, but on what you focus on!

Secondly, determine the main goal of your presentation. What does she prove or disprove? Perhaps she tells about some methods or events, your personal experience, etc. Do not interfere with different directions in one report. Therefore, immediately decide on the concept of your speech, consider that you will speak at the beginning, at the end - and, accordingly, what slides and with what information you need.

Thirdly, most of the speakers cannot correctly calculate the time of their report. If you give a very little time - then make a huge report with video and sounds - there is almost no sense. The listeners will not even watch her time! Much better, make a small performance, and the rest of the material is placed in another article and everything is interested in - copy it onto media.

Work with Slide

Usually, the first thing is made, at the beginning of work on the presentation, is the addition of slides (i.e. pages that will contain textual and graphical information). Make it easy: Run Power Point (by the way, the example will be shown in the example), and click "Home / Create Slide".

How to make a presentation - step-by-step guide
How to make a presentation - step-by-step guide

By the way, you can delete slides (click on the left side of the desired and press the DEL key, move, change between them with places - using a mouse).

As we have already noticed, we have the simplest slide: the headline and text under it. To have the opportunity, for example, place text in two columns (easy to compare objects with this location) - you can change the slide layout. To do this, click right-click on the slide on the left in the column and select the setting: "layout / ...". See the picture below.

How to make a presentation - step-by-step guide

I will add a couple of slides and my presentation will consist of 4 pages (slides).

All pages of our work - while white. It would be nice to give them some kind of design (i.e. choose the desired topic). To do this, open the "Design / Topics" tab.

How to make a presentation - step-by-step guide
How to make a presentation - step-by-step guide

Now our presentation is not so flexible ...

It's time to go to edit text information of our presentation.

Work with text

With the text in Power Point work simple and easy. It is enough to click on the desired block with the mouse and enter the text, or simply copy it and paste from another document.

Also, with the help of a mouse, it can be easily moved or turn if you hold the left mouse button on the border of the frame surrounding the text.

By the way, in Power Point, as in the usual Word, are highlighted in a red feature all words written with errors. Therefore, pay attention to spelling - it is very unpleasant when you see rough mistakes on the presentation!

In my example, I will add text to all pages, it turns out about the following.

Editing and inserting graphs, charts, tables

Charts and graphs are usually used to visually demonstrate a change in some indicators relative to others. For example, show the profit of this year, relative to the past.

To insert the diagram, click Power Point: "Insert / Charts".

How to make a presentation - step-by-step guide

Next, a window will appear in which there will be many different types of charts and graphs, it remains only to choose the appropriate one. Here you can find: Circular diagrams, point, linear, etc.

How to make a presentation - step-by-step guide

After you decide on the selection, the Excel window will open in front of you to enter the indicators that will be displayed on the graph.

In my example, I decided to make an indicator of the popularity of presentations by year: from 2010 to 2013. See the picture below.

How to make a presentation - step-by-step guide
How to make a presentation - step-by-step guide

To insert the tables, click on: "Insert / Table". Please note that you can immediately select the number of rows and columns in the table being created.

That's what happened, after filling:

Working with media

Modern presentation is very difficult to imagine without pictures. Therefore, insert them extremely desirable, because most people will be boring, if there are no interesting pictures.

For starters do not smack! Try not to place many pictures on one slide, better make pictures on a larger and add another slide. From the rear rows, sometimes, it is very difficult to see the small details of the images.

Add picture Simply: Click "Insert / Image". Next, choose a place where you are stored for pictures and add the desired one.

Inserting sound and video are very similar in nature. In general, these things are not always and everywhere should be included in the presentation. First, not always and not everywhere it is appropriate if you have to sound music in the midst of silence of students trying to analyze your work. Secondly, on the computer on which you will present your presentation may not be the necessary codecs or any other files.

To add music or movies, click: "Insert / movie (sound)", then specify the place on your hard disk where the file is.

The program will warn you that when viewing this slide, it will automatically start playing video. Agree.

The imposition of effects, transitions and animation

Probably, many have seen on presentations, and even in films that beautiful transitions are made between some frames: for example, a frame as a book page, turns on the next sheet, or smoothly dissolves. The same can be done in the POWER POINT program.

To do this, select the desired slide in the column on the left. Next, in the "Animation" section, select "Transition Style". Here you can choose dozens of different shifts of pages! By the way, when you hover on each - you will see how the page will be displayed when demonstrating.

Important! The transition acts only on one slide that you have chosen. If you have chosen the first slide, the launch will start from this transition!

Approximately the same effects that are superimposed on the presentation pages can be applied to our objects on the page: for example, the text (this thing is called animation). This will make a sharp pop-up text, or emerging from emptiness, etc.

To overlay this effect, select the desired text, click on the Animation tab, and then click on "Animation Setup".

Before you, on the right, there will be a column in which you can add different effects. By the way, the result will be displayed instantly, in real time, so you can easily pick the right effects.

Demonstration and view

To start showing your presentation, you can simply click on the F5 button (or click the "Slideshow" tab, and then select "Start Showing from the beginning").

It is desirable to go to the display settings and adjust everything you need.

For example, you can run a presentation in full screen mode, changing the slides of time or to manual (it depends on your preparation and type of report), configure image display settings, etc.

How to prevent errors

  • Check spelling. Rough spelling errors can completely spoil the overall impression of your work done. Errors in the text are emphasized with a red wavy feature.
  • If you used the sound or movies in your presentation, and you are going to represent it not from your laptop (computer), then copy these multimedia files along with the document! It will not be superfluous to take the codecs that they must be played. It is very often it turns out that there are no data on another computer and you will not be able to demonstrate our work in full light.
  • Follows from the second point. If you plan to print a report, and submit it in paper form - then do not add video and music to it - it will not really be visible and audible on paper!
  • Presentation is not only slides with pictures, your report is very important!
  • Do not smack - from the rear rows to see the small text is difficult.

After such a setting, as a rule, sheets will be displayed a little differently, which is not always convenient. To return to the same type, simply double-click on the left mouse button along any slide.

Animation . When demonstrating the slides go to each other without any effects - they simply change. But you can configure different beautiful transitions between them. This is done using the "Animation" tab ("Transitions" in Versions 2010-2016).

Here you can choose a suitable transition. By default, it applies to the slide that is currently opened. But you can apply and to all slides immediately, to do this, click on the "Apply to all" button.

Adding effects

You can also make such transitions not only between slides, but also between the elements. For example, there is a headline on the slide, text and photos. You can make it so that the title appeared first, then the text smoothly arose, and after it - the photo.

In PowerPoint 2007, in the tab, there is a special part "Animation" and "Animation Setup".
