How to Edit a Brain PPT Template Quickly
Note: Watch this short tutorial screencast or follow the quick steps below, that complement this video.
1. Assign the Parts of the Brain PowerPoint Template
I start with a pre-built brain infographic slide that you can download now from Envato Elements. There's no shortage of purposes for this slide, but what I'm going to create in this example is a diagram that explains the type of job we're hiring for.
We need to explain the characteristics that we're looking for in an applicant. Start by typing over the percentage placeholders with the characteristics that'll make the candidate the perfect fit for the job.
2. Update the Explanatory Text Placeholders
Also, I can update the placeholders here on the right side to further elaborate on the job role. This is much more engaging and creative than just using a bulleted list.
3. Change the Colors of the Brain Infographic
You can even click on the individual elements in the diagram and change the color from the Drawing Tools > Shape Fill option with a single piece selected. I'll come up here and change the color with the Shape field drop-down to try out a different color.
