We all know that we can Create a Video from our PowerPoint Presentation. We know that a video grabs the attention quicker, rather than turning Slides. It breaks up the monotony of continuous Slides, it provides compelling content and it helps the audience relate to our material. In a previous post of mine, I described Create an MP4 Video From Our PowerPoint 13 Presentation. The difference now is that we have a new quality that we can use in order to Export our Video. This new quality is Ultra HD (4K). The resolution used for PowerPoint Presentations and 4K Monitors is called UHDTV 4K and 3840 x 2160 pixels. Just continue reading in order to find out How To Export Our PowerPoint Presentation into a Video Ultra HD.
In PowerPoint, when we write a Timeline, a Bulleted List of Processes or Steps on Slide, PowerPoint Designer appears straight away suggesting us a variety of Timeline Designs in order for us to use. The Designer realizes that it is dealing with a Time Process and responds by opening and showing us several graphical depictions for us to choose from. In order to find out more about how Design Ideas for Timelines works in PowerPoint 365 just continue reading.
In PowerPoint 365, we can add now a Recording tab to the ribbon which is available. We can then create a Presentation made up of recorded slides, screen recordings and inserted Videos and finally share the Recorded Content to be viewed. We can even make our Presentations more interactive by embedding quizzes to assist. We can even change the ink color right from the pane in the recording pane. In order to learn more of the Recording tab in PowerPoint 365, with all the available commands just keep on reading.
In Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Outlook we can use the automatic background removal or we can even draw lines to indicate which areas of the Picture Background we want to keep or which areas we want to keep. By using the Background Removal, we accent or highlight the subject of the picture or to remove the distracting detail. Background Removal is not available for Vector Graphic Files. In order to learn how the Background Removal command works just continue reading.
In the image below, I have Microsoft Word running, and I have inserted an image in the Document. Once the image is selected, the Format tab appears where from the left of the ribbon and at the area named Adjust we select the command Remove Background.
A new feature has arrived in PowerPoint 365. The name is Quick Starter (sort of like Quick Silver). What does it do though?
It builds an Outline in PowerPoint, to help us get started researching a subject of our choice. All we must do, is to enter a Topic, and voila, after a couple of steps an Outline is created according to the information that we have entered and according to our choices.
All you need to do, to use the Quick Starter feature in PowerPoint is to follow the steps below. Believe me, you must continue reading because it is an amazing and useful feature. Once we have PowerPoint running, from Backstage View, and where all the Templates are located we select the Quick Starter one as shown in the image below.
Alternative text is text associated with an image that serves the same purpose and conveys the same essential information as the image. In situations where the image is not available to the reader, perhaps because they have turned off images in their web browser or are using a screen reader due to a visual impairment, the alternative text ensures that no information or functionality is lost. Absent or unhelpful alternative text can be a source of frustration for visually impaired users of the Web.
Thankfully in PowerPoint 365, it automatically generates Alt Text for photographs by using intelligent services in the cloud. PowerPoint 365 doesn’t generate Alt Text for Drawn Images, such as Clip Art, Diagrams or Icons.
If we have used the Pen or Highlighter to draw on our PowerPoint Slide, we have also used the Eraser feature that is available. Now, a new eraser has appeared in PowerPoint 365. The name is Segment Eraser at what it does, is that it allows us for precise control when we are tidying up and Ink Drawing. It erases Ink back to where it intersects with another line.
