The PowerPoint tutorial will teach you three basic rules to guide you to creating professionally-designed PowerPoint templates and unique presentation! These are the rules that will guide you to the foundation of a success in PowerPoint layout. Let’s get started!
Your PowerPoint slides will typically be size 10-inches (width) * 7.5 inches (height). You can resize them to 12*7.5. In the PowerPoint document, and go through Design > Page Setup. If your slides are 12 inches in width or greater, you’ll be more flexible and have the ability to organize the contents in the slide.
The fonts you choose to use can either be the difference between a successful or a failed PPT presentation.
I suggest you pick one font for all of your slides of content. The font I prefer to use myself is Calibri because it’s modern and safe. Helvetica or Century Gothic are great options as well. You can choose a different font for your cover slide as well as the slide’s headings. Be sure that the additional font you choose is unique and understandable. Make sure you take care of the comfort and visual appeal of your audience.
When you are preparing your slides for presentation make sure to make sure that your font size is large. If you plan to present your PowerPoint presentation in an event in public or not. The first is that you can improve the comfort of your audience. It’s also a good practice to develop an effective presentation skill, since you’ll have to master how to organize your the content. Personally, I use at least 20 points for major parts as well as 14-18 for smaller parts. To make comments on charts or graphics 12 should be the maximum. Even if you have number of things to write down remember that you don’t have to write everything down to make clear important points. Keep it simple. People are always busy. More is not always better.
Font Squirrel is my favorite source for high-quality, free and user-friendly fonts. To install the latest fonts on your PC: On your desktop, download the font archive. Then, click Start. Control Panel > Fonts > Copy the font files.
3. Color Scheme
I recommend using two or three colors. For all of your slides with content, I suggest using black as the primary text (in this case the background of your PowerPoint should be light grey or white) and then use two additional colors to highlight key words, statements, or figures. The colors chosen must be clear and contrast with each other as well as with each other and with your PowerPoint background.
