Adding Transitions to PowerPoint – New video tutorial

You’ve built your amazing PowerPoint presentation, and you’re all set with what you’re saying.

But, have you considered how one slide will transition to the next? Sounds silly, but slide transitions can have a big impact on your audience and how they perceive your presentation.

That’s why our latest PowerPoint video tutorial shows you how to apply transitions to your slides. Also, it demonstrates what kind of effect they can have. The new PowerPoint video tutorial, the third in our new series, covers the basics of adding transitions. We show you how to find the transitions, how to apply them to a slide, and how to edit their effects.

To do this we started with a simple presentation (about the plucky – and lonely – Mars Curiosity rover, no less) of just seven slides. We run through the three types of basic PowerPoint transitions, Subtle, Exciting, and Dynamic Content, and how they interact with your presentation. During the video we lean heavily toward using the Subtle transitions more than any other. That’s because Exciting and Dynamic can be somewhat distracting for your audience. To find out more about some of the best types of transitions to use, check out this blog post.

The tutorial is just eight minutes long and will definitely help anyone looking to add a degree of style and flair to a somewhat flat PowerPoint presentation. You’ll also learn how to set your slideshow to cycle automatically – great for setting it running unattended on a screen.
