PowerPoint is software that allows you to create presentations and is packed with many features. There are basic PowerPoint functionalities, but also advanced functionalities when you want to go further in the use of this presentation software. Here are some tips to know!

Remove the background from an image

The first PowerPoint tip that may be useful to know is how to remove the background from an image. Indeed, it is not uncommon to find an image that meets your need, but sometimes it will be better to isolate a single element to integrate it into your slide. What is more, it will also make it possible to have an image in the desired shape. This PowerPoint tip will therefore allow you to know how to do it. To do this, you will need to use the PowerPoint “Remove background” feature. You will therefore have to start by selecting the image from which you want to remove the background, then “Format image” and “Remove the background”. The background area will then be removed and it will be possible to continue formatting its active slide using images and videos, shapes, text boxes, etc. If you have difficulty in formatting your presentation, call on a PowerPoint agency can be a great way to be accompanied by professionals in the creation of PowerPoint presentations. This PowerPoint tip allows you to avoid the use of image editing software and to save time in the creation of your PowerPoint presentation.

Change the size of a PowerPoint file

Another PowerPoint tip that can be very useful is to know the PowerPoint feature that will reduce the size of your file. Indeed, certain presentations or PowerPoint models are sometimes too heavy to be sent by e-mail for example and it will therefore be necessary to be able to reduce the size of the file. Oftentimes, it is the embedded images that make the file large. This PowerPoint trick will therefore allow you to compress the images. By adding an image to your PowerPoint presentation, you will then have to click on “Compress images”. It will then be possible to choose compression options with “Apply to selected image only” which must be unchecked to compress all the images in the presentation, but also “Remove cropping areas from images”. It will also be possible to check the box corresponding to the image quality desired for its presentation and then click on “OK”.

Add a logo on his slides

Another PowerPoint tip to know is that you can add a logo in exactly the same place on all your slides. For this, it will be possible to create a PowerPoint template in which we will integrate its logo. But sometimes several models will be used for the same presentation, it is then on the Master Slide that it will be necessary to make the modifications to be applied to all the models, here the addition of a logo. To do this, you will have to click on the “Display” tab then “Slide master” to then make the desired modifications on the Master Slide. Each new model created and slide resulting from this model will therefore include the characteristics of the Master Slide, which will allow in particular to place a logo in exactly the same place on all its slides. The presentation will then be much more uniform and the logo always is present.
