Hi, this is Chris with VitaminCM.com. And today were going to work on creating PowerPoint Presentations. When I click open PowerPoint it gives me a little wizard that’s let's me pick how I want to start, I can either start from the auto content wizard which I really don’t like using, a design template which gives me the styling and everything or a blank presentation. I'm going to start from the design template, so I will click okay. When I click that it shows me all the different design templates that I have available if I click on them I can go through them and see what they look like. Just pick one I like to take on with the white background and either black or dark blue text because that seems to woks the best for presentation, so I’ll click OKAY.
And now, that the presentation is created we want to set up my first slide and there is all different types of layout for slides. The one that it gives you for default for the first slide is what I call a title slide. There is one that has a heading with text, a heading with two columns of text, the table, charts, pictures and nothing at all. So whatever your content is pick the one that is appropriate so I usually start off with the title slide and then I click end and add my titles. So I’ll click in a new and make my subtitle. Okay, now the styling on the fonts here that I'm using, this piece of artwork in the middle this is all determined by design template. If I were to switch to a different design template the fonts, the art work it will all get updated to correspond to that one.
Now, I want to add another slide so what I’ll do is say INSERT NEW SLIDE and I want to slide that just as the heading and some text. And so I’ll click that and say OKAY and I'm ready to create my next slide. But what I want to do is, I want to dummy up my whole presentations so I want to put in all place holder slides for all the slides that I'm going to need. So to do that, I want to go to the slides order which is down here, the different views right now I'm in the normal view. If I go to the slides order view I could see all the slides as if they're pieces of paper laid out on the table in front of me.
Now, I'm going to need several different regular text slides so I want to click on this one and copy it, then I want to click in between the first one and the second one and then paste it. So I'm just going to use CONTROL V and paste it in and I want to paste in another one. Okay, so here are couple text slides and what I want to do now is maybe insert, title slide for another heading. So I will just click here insert that and a few more text slides. And finally an ending slide.
Okay, so I have my title slide a few basic content slides another title side to introduce a new topic. A few more contents slides and finally an ending slide. Now the next thing that I do is I go back into the normal view and I can go from here just click in this icon or I can just double click on a slide. And I've already got my slide show laid out on a piece of paper so I know how many slides I needed, I know needed this nine slides and I know what my topic. So what I like to do is go through and put in all my, my headings on the top of the page so all the pages that I'm going to be creating. So I’ll just say and then I’ll click on the next slide here. Click on the next slide, the title side is the same at the end, just so you have it as the beginning and the end and it kind of sums up the topic. So I want to go back to the slides sorted to show you what I have.
So I have my title slides, then my three detail slides for my first topic, then an introduction for my second topic with the title slide. My detail slides and then just the closing slide at the end. Now ones I've gotten all my headings in I want to go back and I want to put my text in this is the next thing. So I click in here and I’ll write, okay so I put my text in, I’ll go add it in for the rest of the slides, filled up with their topics or they're headings and then I have all the detail text edit in and we could see them here. And one of the last things I do is that I go in and add in any graphics that I want, so a piece of clip art, a photo, a chart or a graph, a table something like that.
So you can just go back to the slides and do insert and from the insert menu you have a bunch of choices you can do a picture, either clip art or from file, an org chart, word art, you can insert movies or sounds charts, tables all kinds of different things. From object, maybe if you had a flash animation something, like that. So I'm just going to put in a piece of basic clipart and I’ll type CHART so I have a bunch of different charts here. Now, I will take this one edit in and when they come in they're not, there are usually going to come into the center of the screen and they're not necessarily size correctly. So I’ll just drag it to where I want it and then I’ll stretch it from the corner to the size I want. And it’s actually covering the letters and little some of there. And that’s how you work with image, as if you pulled in a photo you would just browse for the photo on your hard drive place it in.
Same with the movie or a flash animation or any of this things and then just drag it to where you want, size it the way you want. Now that I have all of my headings in, all of my text in and all of my graphics in, I’ll go back to the slides sorter and I will take a look at it. And then what I do is I would make that it all made sense, maybe it was on the correct orders or something I need the slide around. If I didn’t like this particular slide here I wanted it somewhere else I could just grab it and drop it somewhere else. Or I could drop it here or there you could even grab blocks of slides, just select them all at ones and drag them to somewhere else. Just like that and then ones I have it all laid out with all the information I want and then what I do is I go back and I edit, edit, edit, refine and go through the whole process of it, until I'm satisfied. And that’s the work flow I use to quickly put together Professional Organized PowerPoint Presentation.
