How To Write Powerful Powerpoint Presentations Or What Was I Thinking?
“Friendship is like a four leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have, don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.” Friendship is one of the most precious treasures in our life. When staying together with friends, we feel warm and safe and there seems nothing to worry; when apart from each other, we miss them so. How much we wish to stay together forever! However, because of graduation, work changes, etc, we have to leave. At this moment a friendship DVD slideshow will bring us back to the happy moments with our friends.
Daughter (confidently): Dad, Mom, it’s just a piece of cake! Listen to my plan. Now that we have already got PowerPoint, I intend to make full use of it to make this DVD slideshow. Apart from PowerPoint, I just need a PowerPoint to DVD burner. Only these two little applications!
Your first step is to create your own template library, a library of PowerPoint documents that have presentation structures you like. This library can contain templates that you’ll use when giving presentations that include lists, presentations that are meant to inspire, frameworks for very content heavy presentations, etc. All you need is a few frameworks that you can reuse whenever you have a presentation to give. A good way to start is to go back to all of your old presentations and create frameworks from those.

First off we have to create a new presentation, which I strongly encourage you to do at this stage by opening Microsoft Powerpoint and using the shortcut keystroke, [Ctrl] + [N]. Next we want to apply one of those common Microsoft templates, seeing I am working in Microsoft Powerpoint 2003 as I am writing this article, I am going to describe changing the Digital Dots template. So you need to apply this template by choosing the Format menu and then choosing Slide Design from the drop down menu. On the right hand side of the screen the Task pane open. Move your mouse pointer over each of the slide designs till you see the one called Digital Dots and click on it once. You should notice this design now applied to your slide.
Minimize the use of too much animation. Flying texts and complicated slide transitions should be used sparingly during a Powerpoint presentation. Not only are they unnecessary, but they can also drive the attention of your audience away from the meat of the discussion. They may sometimes be too annoying. They can also add more file size, which makes the Powerpoint presentation a lot harder to share to others or send through an e-mail. The images, videos, and even sounds should only be used if you want to emphasize something.
6) Your PowerPoint template is complete. You just need to choose” File” and select “Save As” so as you can save the created template. Name your template and choose “Design Template” from the menu then Click “Save” to resave it.
If you want to apply a template to all of the slides in your presentation, you will need to click one of the slides in the left panel to select it. Then you will need to click the arrow on the template that you want to use. In the menu that opens, you will need to click the Apply to All Slides option. All of your slides will then have the same design.
