How to Quickly Make Great Black and White PowerPoint Presentations
Now that you've seen some templates let's learn how to customize them.
For this tutorial, I'll be using the premium Black White Project Vol. 1 template.
Download a copy of the template to follow along with the steps below. Let's get started:
1. How to Add a Picture to a Slide
I'll use slide three for this first tutorial. Here's the slide with no changes made to it:
There are two ways to add a picture to the template:
For the first method, click on Insert Picture from the File button in the picture placeholder. After you click the button locate the picture that's saved on your device. Double click the picture you want to add.
The second way to add an image is to
click on the Insert tab above the toolbar. Then select the down arrow next to
the pictures button. Depending on where your picture is located, select the
option that's best for you.
Next, locate the picture and double click. It'll be added to your slide. With this second option, you may need to resize the image.
2. How to Change an Object’s Color
For this section of the tutorial we'll be using slide 29 of the black and white PowerPoint template.
You can change part of an object (if it's an object like the one shown above). Or you can change the color of the whole object.
To change just part of the object's color, click on the whole object. You'll know that the whole object is selected when a box with handles around it appears around the object. Click on the part of the object that you want to change the color of.
Next, click on the Shape Format tab. Click on the arrow button next to the Shape Fill tab. This will cause a drop-down menu of colors to appear. Choose the color that you want to change your object to.
To change the entire object's color just select the object once. Click on the color that you want in the drop-down menu.
3. How to Delete Text
We'll be using slide 14 to show you how to delete text. Here's slide 14 without any changes made to it:
To delete text, click in the text that you want to delete. You'll know that you've selected the text if a text box appears around the text. Highlight all the text you want to delete. Press the Delete button on your keyboard.
4. How to Change the Font
We'll be using slide 14, the
same slide as in step 3, to show you how to change the font size and
To change the font, highlight all the text that you want to change the font of. Next, go to the Font menu and click the arrow next to it. This will cause a list of all available fonts to drop down.
From this drop-down list, choose the font that's right for you. To change the font size, go to the Font menu. The Font Size menu is next to it.
Click on the arrow next to the number in the Font Size menu. Next, choose the font size that's right for you.
5. How to Add Narration to Your Slide
We'll still be working with slide 14.
To add narration to your slide you'll first need a microphone. Once you've made sure that you've got a microphone connected to your device, click on the Insert tab above the toolbar.
Next, click on the arrow next to the Audio button. This will cause a menu to drop down. Now, click Record Audio from the menu. This will cause a text box to pop up.
Then, click the Record button to start recording. When you're done with your narration click the Stop button to stop recording. You can listen to what you've recorded by pressing the Play button. To add the audio to the slide, click the Insert button in the pop-up window.
