You can communicate information better and more easily with a PowerPoint presentation. a series of slides that you create by using Power Point. Before you get started on the presentation, you should know what you will need. You may want to use one or more of the following items. Slides.

Open a view by selecting appropriate option in View menu or clicking it‟s corresponding button,, located at the bottom of the main window. 2 Slide view This slide view is used to create and edit your slides. This is the default view when you first open Power Point. In this view, all of the menus and toolbars are available for use. Use this view to create and edit the contents of your slides Outline view The Outline View is used to display an outline format of your slide show. The slide number and text contents are displayed in this view. In this view you can edit the displayed text, delete slides and even cut and paste slides from one location to another. Cutting and pasting is possible within the same presentation or between different presentations. Slide sorter view The Slide Sorter View gives you a miniature picture of each slide. You can use this view to select and drag slides from one position to another. This view is best for arranging and ordering slides, adding transitions and setting timings. Notes page view The Notes View is used to enter notes (or a script) for the slides within a presentation. Once the notes are added, you can print the slide show and use the printed output as a script. You can also gives copies of the printed materials to your audience as in – depth handouts. Draw and type anything you want on a notes page. Slide show This view displays the slides full screen. It is used to either actually show or simply review your slide presentations. Use this view to check final sizes, colors, animation, and transitions, between slides, timing, sounds, and other controls Creating New presentations Creating a presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint involves starting with a basic design; adding new slides and content; choosing layouts; modifying slide design, if you want, by changing the color scheme or applying different design templates; and creating effects such as animated slide transitions. The information below focuses on the options available to you when you start the process. The New Presentation task pane in PowerPoint gives you a range of ways with which to start creating a presentation. These include: Blank Start with slides that have minimal design and no color applied to them. Existing presentation Base your new presentation on one that you have already written and designed. This command creates a copy of an existing presentation so you can make the design or content changes you want for the new presentation. Design template Base your presentation on a PowerPoint template that already has a design concept, fonts, and color scheme. In addition to the templates that come with PowerPoint, you can use one you created yourself. Templates with suggested content Use the AutoContent Wizard to apply a design template that includes suggestions for text on your slides. You then type the text that you want. A template on a Web site Create a presentation using a template located on a Web site. A template on Microsoft.com Choose from additional PowerPoint templates in the Microsoft Office Template Gallery. These are arranged according to type of presentation. 3 Content inserted from other sources You can also insert slides from other presentations or text from other applications such as Microsoft Word. After you choose the type of presentation you want to create, the wizard uses the information that you provide to help you create a presentation outline. Presentations created with the Auto Content Wizard include suggestions on where to put different kind of information and how to organize it into an effective presentation format. Enter your own text The easiest and fastest way to enter and edit the text in your presentation is using outline view. In outline view you can see and edit your presentation in a window, rather than one slide at a time. Inserting graphics into your presentations In generally, graphics are referred to as objects, whether a particular graphic is simple as a line or as complex as a piece of clip art. When you have a lot of complex information to be presented to a broad audience representing information graphics is always more effective than using text only. To insert a Clipart into your slide: • Click on Insert.

You can make changes right up to the last minute. Slide transitions and animations provide more control over pacing. Text and graphic animations capture attention and help illustrate your point to the audience. You can use multimedia effects such as sound and video to best advantage. 6 Prepare Animations and Transitions With creating animations, you can display objects one by one, here the object -can be a text or a graphic. We can create animations in two ways, display objects in pre defined time intervals or display next object at each time you click mouse. This is known as “Progressive disclosure”.

When you move to the next item in animation, previously displayed items can be dimmed, hidden, or changed to a different colour.
