CREATING SLIDES

Creating slides in PowerPoint it is something that you will find very easy if you follow these step-by-step instructions and watch the video:

  1. Once you opened PowerPoint, and Select a Template (Optional) you will see the PowerPoint Interface as showed two lessons ago. So, once you choose the template you will already see your fist slide on the PowerPoint Interface.

  2. Add a New Slide: In the ribbon at the top of the PowerPoint window, click on the "Home" tab. In the "Slides" group, click on the "New Slide" button. A drop-down menu will appear with various slide layout options.

  3. Choose Slide Layout: Select the desired slide layout from the options in the drop-down menu. PowerPoint offers different layouts for text, images, charts, and more. Click on a layout to add a new slide with that particular design.

  4. Customize Slide Content: On the newly added slide, you can begin adding content. Depending on the slide layout you chose, you will see designated areas for text, images, or other content elements. Click on a text box to start typing or use the "Insert" tab on the ribbon to add images, shapes, charts, and other elements.

  5. Format and Design: Customize the appearance of your slides using the formatting options available in the ribbon. The "Home" and "Design" tabs offer various tools for changing fonts, colors, backgrounds, and more. You can also adjust the layout, alignment, and spacing of slide elements.

  6. Add More Slides: Repeat steps 3 to 6 to add additional slides to your presentation. Use the "New Slide" button in the "Home" tab to add slides with different layouts or duplicate existing slides if needed.

  7. Rearrange Slides: To reorder your slides, go to the "Slides" pane on the left side of the PowerPoint window. Click and drag a slide thumbnail to the desired position.

  8. Preview and Save: Use the various view options in the bottom-right corner of the PowerPoint window to preview your presentation. To save your work, click on the "File" tab in the top-left corner, choose "Save As," and provide a name and location for your presentation.

By following these steps, you can create and customize slides in PowerPoint to build engaging and visually appealing presentations.
