Make your PowerPoint presentations pop with charts, graphics, and images

Julie Sartain | July 11, 2014
You can buck the stereotype of PowerPoint presentations as bullet-pointed snoozefest. PowerPoint has a wealth of new graphics, layout, and animation features to liven up your deck. We'll focus on how to add tables, charts, graphics, and images to your slides, but that's just a sample--delve deeper into the menus and you'll find a wealth of additional options.

PowerPoint drops the video in the dotted box. Add your titles and text, resize and position the video on the slide, then save your presentation. 

To view your finished slideshow, press F5 or click the Slideshow tab and select the From the Beginning button in the Start Slideshow Group and watch it play. When it gets to the last slide, click the Play button in the center of the screen and watch the video you selected.

Stay tuned for more articles about how to liven up slides in PowerPoint 2013, including custom animations and tips on best design practices.
