Format Images— Picture Styles
Use the preset picture styles

Format Images— Front or Back

Same principles apply to ‘Send Backward’.

Apply adjustments by clicking Keep Changes.

Format Images— Group
Group multiple objects into one with this button
To group means making multiple objects into one.
Group objects by selecting them and pressing the Group button.
When you make any changes to a grouped object (move, animate, etc.), these are applied as to one object.
Objects can also be Ungrouped using the option in the Group dropdown menu.

Transitions control how it looks when you switch to a different slide.
There are 34 transitions in PowerPoint 2010. Like the preset Picture Styles, these are presented in a gallery on the Transitions tab.
Not all versions of PowerPoint have the same transitions.
Certain aspects of a transition can be changed using the Effect Options menu to the right of the transitions gallery.
Selecting a transition will only apply it to the slide you are currently working on.
Note: To preview a slide in all its animated glory, click From Current Slide on the Slide Show tab.
The Transitions tab also presents the option of having sound play when slides are switched.
Choose a preset sound from this list
The option Other Sound allows you to choose a sound file stored on your computer.
Set how long the sound will play.
Sound will be applied one slide at a time unless Apply To All is selected.
Here is where you can choose to have slides advance automatically or at your command.
Animations allow objects to enter, react, or exit separately
Entrance animations appear in green
Emphasis animations appear in yellow
Exit animations appear in red
When printing, all objects will appear on a slide, even if they had an exit animation.
Most animations have options
For advanced options, open the Animation Pane.
Here you can rearrange events and choose their triggers.
Start With or Start After Previous tells these evens to happen automatically.
To add multiple animations to one object, click on Add Animation.
Otherwise, a chosen animation will overwrite the previous selection.
Notice an automatic event will be numbered with the event before it.
If all events are automatic, they will all be numbered 0.
Inserted audio is represented by this icon
Click here to insert audio
When audio is inserted, special tabs appear
On the special Playback tab, you can choose to:
Keep only part of the audio file
Have the audio start automatically with the slide, play when prompted, or keep playing regardless of which slide is visible

Custom Slide Show allows you to rearrange and omit slides without changing the original
Rehearse Timings & Record Slide Show will play the slideshow while recording your cues. Record Slide Show also allows you to record narration
These cues (if you choose to save them) will automatically advance the slides in subsequent showings
Presenter’s Tips—Cheat Notes
Presenter View will show a different view on the presenter’s monitor than what is projected.
Ideally, the slideshow will display on the audience’s screen, while the presenter sees the current slide, what slides are next, and their notes.
Notes can be added at the bottom of any slide. Notes will only show in editing mode or Presenter’s View.
Video can be formatted like audio using the special Playback tab
Video can be formatted like pictures using the special Format tab

Options to play the video fullscreen or hide the video while not playing are also on the Playback tab
Clicking the triangle under the Video button allows you to insert videos from the internet
To insert video from the internet, you’ll need to paste an embed code from whatever website hosts that video
