Hints to help you make an A!

Your slides should contain photos.
When capturing a photo, right-click (PC) or OpenApple-click (Mac)
and save to the desktop. Then you may put the photo into your PowerPoint.

Put as much information into as few words as possible.
Use key words and phrases; you do not want a lot of words on a slide.
Use Bolded lines and words very rarely.

All the slides in your PowerPoint should agree with each other.
They should all have a consistent format so your reader will focus on the information, not the presentation.
Be sure that all transitions, animations, backgrounds, and/or design schemes apply to ALL slides.
And NO sounds, please!

To add the same transition to all your slides
On the Slide Show menu, click Slide Transition.
In the list, click the transition effect you want.
Click Apply to All Slides.

To apply a preset animation scheme.
On the Slide Show menu, click Animation Schemes
In the Slide Design task pane, click the Apply to All Slides button.

To apply a custom animation
In normal view, display the slide that has the text or objects you want to animate.
Select the object you want to animate.
On the Slide Show menu, click Custom Animation.
In the Custom Animation task pane, click Add effect, and do one or more of the following:
If you want to make the text or object enter the slide show presentation with an effect,
point to Entrance and then click an effect.
If you want to add an effect to text or an object that is on the slide,
point to Emphasis and then click an effect.
If you want to add an effect to text or an object that makes it leave the slide at some point,
point to Exit and then click an effect.
