Rob’s PowerPoint Lab: Magnifying Glass Template

Here at Future Present, we love pushing PowerPoint to its limits and exploring what’s possible.

Our PowerPoint development team are experts at producing uniquely inspiring presentations. They are always up to date with the latest PowerPoint innovations. 

Rob's PowerPoint Lab

To test the functionalities of PowerPoint, each week in our all-hands meeting, our design team challenges Rob from our development team to recreate things they’ve found online… in PowerPoint.

Using his keen knowledge of PowerPoint animations and the Morph tool, Rob almost always manages to make something awesome.

This week’s challenge

This week, Mia was working on a presentation in which the client wanted to highlight elements on the slide without losing the overall position of the image.  

To achieve this effect, Rob once again utilised PowerPoint’s Morph tool. He positioned the main image (in this example a Periodic Table) centrally, then drew a circle to represent the magnifying glass. 

He copied and pasted the Periodic Table again into the circle and used the Zoom function to ‘scale up’ a specific area to be highlighted. Next, he positioned the whole magnifying glass directly over the same area of the original image. 

Then, Rob duplicated the slide and moved the magnifying glass to the next area to be highlighted. Finally, he set all the transitions to Morph, with a transition time of between 2 and 4 seconds.

This effect can be used on a variety of different images to highlight key areas. Our client was really impressed with the finished slide.
