The PowerPoint tutorial will teach you three basic rules to guide you to create professionally-designed PowerPoint templates and unique presentation! These guidelines are an introduction to essential to a the success of your PowerPoint layout. Let’s get started!
Your PowerPoint slides are typically size 10-inches (width) * 7.5 inches (height). Change them to 12*7.5. In an PowerPoint document, and go through Design > Page Setup. If your slides are 12 inches or greater, you’ll be more flexible and have the ability to organize the contents in the slide.
The fonts you choose to use can either create or destroy your PPT presentation.
I suggest you pick one font for your slides of content. The font I prefer to use myself is Calibri It’s contemporary and secure. Helvetica as well as Century Gothic are great options as well. You can choose a different font to cover your slide or the slide’s headings. Make sure that the additional font you select is original and understandable. Be mindful of your viewers’ visual comfort.
When you are preparing your slides for presentation ensure that you make sure that your font size is large. It doesn’t matter if you are planning to display your PowerPoint presentation in an open presentation or not. The first is that you can enhance the visual experience of your audience. Additionally, it’s an excellent practice to develop efficient presentation skills since you’ll have to master how to organize your information. Personally, I use at least 20 points for the most important elements as well as 14-18 for smaller parts. To make comments on charts or graphics 12 would be the minimum. If you do have a number of things to write down be aware that you don’t have to write everything down to convey important information. Make it brief. People are always busy. More is not always better.
Font Squirrel is my favorite source for high-quality, free and user-friendly fonts. To install the latest fonts on your computer: In the Windows, download the archive, then click Start > Control Panel > Fonts > Copy the font files.
3. Color Scheme
I would suggest using two or three colors. For all of your slides with content, I suggest using black for the text (in this case your background for your PowerPoint must be light grey or white) and utilize two additional colors to highlight key words, statements, or figures. The colors you choose must be easily visible as well as contrasted with one another as well as with the PowerPoint background.
