8 tips to make the best powerpoint presentations.
Want to make your PowerPoint presentations really shine? Here's how to impress and engage your audience.
Table of contents, start with a goal, less is more, consider your typeface, make bullet points count, limit the use of transitions, skip text where possible, think in color, take a look from the top down, bonus: start with templates.
Slideshows are an intuitive way to share complex ideas with an audience, although they're dull and frustrating when poorly executed. Here are some tips to make your Microsoft PowerPoint presentations sing while avoiding common pitfalls.
It all starts with identifying what we're trying to achieve with the presentation. Is it informative, a showcase of data in an easy-to-understand medium? Or is it more of a pitch, something meant to persuade and convince an audience and lead them to a particular outcome?
It's here where the majority of these presentations go wrong with the inability to identify the talking points that best support our goal. Always start with a goal in mind: to entertain, to inform, or to share data in a way that's easy to understand. Use facts, figures, and images to support your conclusion while keeping structure in mind (Where are we now and where are we going?).
I've found that it's helpful to start with the ending. Once I know how to end a presentation, I know how best to get to that point. I start by identifying the takeaway---that one nugget that I want to implant before thanking everyone for their time---and I work in reverse to figure out how best to get there.
Your mileage, of course, may vary. But it's always going to be a good idea to put in the time in the beginning stages so that you aren't reworking large portions of the presentation later. And that starts with a defined goal.
A slideshow isn't supposed to include everything. It's an introduction to a topic, one that we can elaborate on with speech. Anything unnecessary is a distraction. It makes the presentation less visually appealing and less interesting, and it makes you look bad as a presenter.
This goes for text as well as images. There's nothing worse, in fact, than a series of slides where the presenter just reads them as they appear. Your audience is capable of reading, and chances are they'll be done with the slide, and browsing Reddit, long before you finish. Avoid putting the literal text on the screen, and your audience will thank you.

Right off the bat, we're just going to come out and say that Papyrus and Comic Sans should be banned from all PowerPoint presentations, permanently. Beyond that, it's worth considering the typeface you're using and what it's saying about you, the presenter, and the presentation itself.
Consider choosing readability over aesthetics, and avoid fancy fonts that could prove to be more of a distraction than anything else. A good presentation needs two fonts: a serif and sans-serif. Use one for the headlines and one for body text, lists, and the like. Keep it simple. Veranda, Helvetica, Arial, and even Times New Roman are safe choices. Stick with the classics and it's hard to botch this one too badly.
There reaches a point where bullet points become less of a visual aid and more of a visual examination.
Bullet points should support the speaker, not overwhelm his audience. The best slides have little or no text at all, in fact. As a presenter, it's our job to talk through complex issues, but that doesn't mean that we need to highlight every talking point.
Instead, think about how you can break up large lists into three or four bullet points. Carefully consider whether you need to use more bullet points, or if you can combine multiple topics into a single point instead. And if you can't, remember that there's no one limiting the number of slides you can have in a presentation. It's always possible to break a list of 12 points down into three pages of four points each.
Animation, when used correctly, is a good idea. It breaks up slow-moving parts of a presentation and adds action to elements that require it. But it should be used judiciously.
Adding a transition that wipes left to right between every slide or that animates each bullet point in a list, for example, starts to grow taxing on those forced to endure the presentation. Viewers get bored quickly, and animations that are meant to highlight specific elements quickly become taxing.
That's not to say that you can't use animations and transitions, just that you need to pick your spots. Aim for no more than a handful of these transitions for each presentation. And use them in spots where they'll add to the demonstration, not detract from it.
Sometimes images tell a better story than text can. And as a presenter, your goal is to describe points in detail without making users do a lot of reading. In these cases, a well-designed visual, like a chart, might better convey the information you're trying to share.
The right image adds visual appeal and serves to break up longer, text-heavy sections of the presentation---but only if you're using the right images. A single high-quality image can make all the difference between a success and a dud when you're driving a specific point home.
When considering text, don't think solely in terms of bullet points and paragraphs. Tables, for example, are often unnecessary. Ask yourself whether you could present the same data in a bar or line chart instead.
Color is interesting. It evokes certain feelings and adds visual appeal to your presentation as a whole. Studies show that color also improves interest, comprehension, and retention. It should be a careful consideration, not an afterthought.
You don't have to be a graphic designer to use color well in a presentation. What I do is look for palettes I like, and then find ways to use them in the presentation. There are a number of tools for this, like Adobe Color , Coolors , and ColorHunt , just to name a few. After finding a palette you enjoy, consider how it works with the presentation you're about to give. Pastels, for example, evoke feelings of freedom and light, so they probably aren't the best choice when you're presenting quarterly earnings that missed the mark.
It's also worth mentioning that you don't need to use every color in the palette. Often, you can get by with just two or three, though you should really think through how they all work together and how readable they'll be when layered. A simple rule of thumb here is that contrast is your friend. Dark colors work well on light backgrounds, and light colors work best on dark backgrounds.
Spend some time in the Slide Sorter before you finish your presentation. By clicking the four squares at the bottom left of the presentation, you can take a look at multiple slides at once and consider how each works together. Alternatively, you can click "View" on the ribbon and select "Slide Sorter."
Are you presenting too much text at once? Move an image in. Could a series of slides benefit from a chart or summary before you move on to another point?
It's here that we have the opportunity to view the presentation from beyond the single-slide viewpoint and think in terms of how each slide fits, or if it fits at all. From this view, you can rearrange slides, add additional ones, or delete them entirely if you find that they don't advance the presentation.
The difference between a good presentation and a bad one is really all about preparation and execution. Those that respect the process and plan carefully---not only the presentation as a whole, but each slide within it---are the ones who will succeed.
This brings me to my last (half) point: When in doubt, just buy a template and use it. You can find these all over the web, though Creative Market and GraphicRiver are probably the two most popular marketplaces for this kind of thing. Not all of us are blessed with the skills needed to design and deliver an effective presentation. And while a pre-made PowerPoint template isn't going to make you a better presenter, it will ease the anxiety of creating a visually appealing slide deck.

Do you want to have your data in a slide show? If you have Microsoft 365, you can use PowerPoint! PowerPoint is a program that's part of the Microsoft Office suite (which you have to pay for) and is available for both Windows and Mac computers. This wikiHow teaches you how to create your own Microsoft PowerPoint presentation on a computer.
Things You Should Know
- Templates make it easy to create vibrant presentations no matter your skill level.
- When adding photos, you can adjust their sizes by clicking and dragging in or out from their corners.
- You can add animated transitions between slides or to individual elements like bullet points and blocks of text.
- If you don't have a Microsoft Office 365 subscription, you can use the website instead of the desktop app. Go to https://powerpoint.office.com/ to use the website version.
- You can also use the mobile app to make presentations, though it's easier to do this on a computer, which has a larger screen, a mouse, and a keyboard.
- If you don't want to use a template, just click the Blank option in the upper-left side of the page and skip to the next part.
- Skip this step if your selected template has no themes available.
- If you're creating a PowerPoint presentation for which an elaborate title slide has been requested, ignore this step.
- You can change the font and size of text used from the Home tab that's in the orange ribbon at the top of the window.
- You can also just leave this box blank if you like.
- You can also click and drag in or out one of a text box's corners to shrink or enlarge the text box.
- On a Mac, you'll click the Home tab instead.  X Research source
- Clicking the white slide-shaped box above this option will result in a new text slide being inserted.
- Title Slide
- Title and Content
- Section Header
- Two Content
- Content with Caption
- Picture with Caption
- Naturally, the title slide should be the first slide in your presentation, meaning that it should be the top slide in the left-hand column.
- Skip this step and the next two steps if your selected slide uses a template that doesn't have text boxes in it.
- Text boxes in PowerPoint will automatically format the bulk of your text for you (e.g., adding bullet points) based on the context of the content itself.
- You can add notes that the Presentation will not include (but you'll still be able to see them on your screen) by clicking Notes at the bottom of the slide.
- You can change the font of the selected text by clicking the current font's name and then clicking your preferred font.
- If you want to change the size of the text, click the numbered drop-down box and then click a larger or smaller number based on whether you want to enlarge or shrink the text.
- You can also change the color, bolding, italicization, underlining, and so on from here.
- Photos in particular can be enlarged or shrunk by clicking and dragging out or in one of their corners.
- Remember to keep slides uncluttered and relatively free of distractions. It's best to keep the amount of text per slide to around 33 words or less.  X Research source
- Slide content will animate in the order in which you assign transitions. For example, if you animate a photo on the slide and then animate the title, the photo will appear before the title.
- Make your slideshow progress automatically by setting the speed of every transition to align with your speech as well as setting each slide to Advance .  X Trustworthy Source Microsoft Support Technical support and product information from Microsoft. Go to source
- If you need to exit the presentation, press Esc .
- Windows - Click File , click Save , double-click This PC , select a save location, enter a name for your presentation, and click Save .
- Mac - Click File , click Save As... , enter the presentation's name in the "Save As" field, select a save location by clicking the "Where" box and clicking a folder, and click Save .

AI Presentation Maker
When lack of inspiration or time constraints are something you’re worried about, it’s a good idea to seek help. Slidesgo comes to the rescue with its latest functionality—the AI Presentation Maker! With a few clicks, you’ll have wonderful slideshows that suit your own needs . And it’s totally free!
Generate presentations in minutes
We humans make the world move, but we need to sleep, rest and so on. What if there were someone available 24/7 for you? It’s time to get out of your comfort zone and ask the AI Presentation Maker to give you a hand. The possibilities are endless : you choose the topic, the tone and the style, and the AI will do the rest. Now we’re talking!
Customize your AI-generated presentation online
Alright, your robotic pal has generated a presentation for you. But, for the time being, AIs can’t read minds, so it’s likely that you’ll want to modify the slides. Please do! We didn’t forget about those time constraints you’re facing, so thanks to the editing tools provided by one of our sister projects —shoutouts to Wepik — you can make changes on the fly without resorting to other programs or software. Add text, choose your own colors, rearrange elements, it’s up to you! Oh, and since we are a big family, you’ll be able to access many resources from big names, that is, Freepik and Flaticon . That means having a lot of images and icons at your disposal!
How does it work?
Think of your topic.
First things first, you’ll be talking about something in particular, right? A business meeting, a new medical breakthrough, the weather, your favorite songs, a basketball game, a pink elephant you saw last Sunday—you name it. Just type it out and let the AI know what the topic is.
Choose your preferred style and tone
They say that variety is the spice of life. That’s why we let you choose between different design styles, including doodle, simple, abstract, geometric, and elegant . What about the tone? Several of them: fun, creative, casual, professional, and formal. Each one will give you something unique, so which way of impressing your audience will it be this time? Mix and match!
Make any desired changes
You’ve got freshly generated slides. Oh, you wish they were in a different color? That text box would look better if it were placed on the right side? Run the online editor and use the tools to have the slides exactly your way.
Download the final result for free
Yes, just as envisioned those slides deserve to be on your storage device at once! You can export the presentation in .pdf format and download it for free . Can’t wait to show it to your best friend because you think they will love it? Generate a shareable link!
What is an AI-generated presentation?
It’s exactly “what it says on the cover”. AIs, or artificial intelligences, are in constant evolution, and they are now able to generate presentations in a short time, based on inputs from the user. This technology allows you to get a satisfactory presentation much faster by doing a big chunk of the work.
Can I customize the presentation generated by the AI?
Of course! That’s the point! Slidesgo is all for customization since day one, so you’ll be able to make any changes to presentations generated by the AI. We humans are irreplaceable, after all! Thanks to the online editor, you can do whatever modifications you may need, without having to install any software. Colors, text, images, icons, placement, the final decision concerning all of the elements is up to you.
Can I add my own images?
Absolutely. That’s a basic function, and we made sure to have it available. Would it make sense to have a portfolio template generated by an AI without a single picture of your own work? In any case, we also offer the possibility of asking the AI to generate images for you via prompts. Additionally, you can also check out the integrated gallery of images from Freepik and use them. If making an impression is your goal, you’ll have an easy time!
Is this new functionality free? As in “free of charge”? Do you mean it?
Yes, it is, and we mean it. We even asked our buddies at Wepik, who are the ones hosting this AI Presentation Maker, and they told us “yup, it’s on the house”.
Are there more presentation designs available?
From time to time, we’ll be adding more designs. The cool thing is that you’ll have at your disposal a lot of content from Freepik and Flaticon when using the AI Presentation Maker. Oh, and just as a reminder, if you feel like you want to do things yourself and don’t want to rely on an AI, you’re on Slidesgo, the leading website when it comes to presentation templates. We have thousands of them, and counting!.
How can I download my presentation?
The easiest way is to click on “Download” to get your presentation in .pdf format. But there are other options! You can click on “Present” to enter the presenter view and start presenting right away! There’s also the “Share” option, which gives you a shareable link. This way, any friend, relative, colleague—anyone, really—will be able to access your presentation in a moment.
Discover more content
This is just the beginning! Slidesgo has thousands of customizable templates for Google Slides and PowerPoint. Our designers have created them with much care and love, and the variety of topics, themes and styles is, how to put it, immense! We also have a blog, in which we post articles for those who want to find inspiration or need to learn a bit more about Google Slides or PowerPoint. Do you have kids? We’ve got a section dedicated to printable coloring pages! Have a look around and make the most of our site!
How to Design a Professional PowerPoint Presentation
Our series of tips on presentation design outlined some generic rules and ideas that you can live by to create better, more professional presentations. Today we want to follow that up by taking you through the actual process of designing a presentation from start to finish.
We’ll break down every step of the design process, from choosing colors and images to using whitespace properly. After reading through this you should be all set to design your own beautiful presentation slides that will put your coworkers to shame.
Using a pre-built PowerPoint template can be a good starting point for many people (we collected some of the best PowerPoint templates for you!). But if you’re wanting to design your own from start-to-finish, you’re in the right place!
How Does Unlimited PowerPoint Templates Sound?
Download thousands of PowerPoint templates, and many other design elements, with a monthly Envato Elements membership. It starts at $16 per month, and gives you unlimited access to a growing library of over 2,000,000 presentation templates, fonts, photos, graphics, and more.

A Word About Content
I usually make a big deal about content preceding design, and presentations are no exception. Ideally, you’ll have the topic and much or all of the content outlined before you even think about design. This will in every way shape the appearance of your design, which is why working from pre-built templates isn’t always the best move (though generic templates can and do work great in some circumstances).
The reason that I bring this up is that I don’t really have an actual presentation in mind for this project. I’ll be running with a basic theme, but the textual information will be entirely placeholder copy. Your image, font, color and layout selection shouldn’t necessarily match mine but instead reflect the topic and content you’re working with.
Choosing A Color Scheme
Before I even open Photoshop (yes, I design PowerPoint/Keynote slides in Photoshop and drop them in), I want to find a color scheme on which to base my entire design. When I need to quickly find several colors that go together I usually start with Adobe Color CC . Not only is it a great way to build your own color schemes, it’s an outstanding source to find schemes built by others that you can just grab for your projects.
As luck would have it, I liked the very first color scheme I saw upon opening Color. This scheme was featured on the home page and looked like a great place to start for our presentation design.
Now, if you wanted to get everything exactly right, you could make a list of the RGB or Hex values, but I prefer a quicker, more direct route. What I usually do is snap a screenshot of the color scheme, paste it into my document and stretch it across the canvas on its own layer for easy access. This way I can quickly activate the layer, eyedropper the color I want, then hide the layer and get back to work. It’s a bit like having a palette of colors to dip your paintbrush in.
Designing Your Cover Slide
Now that we have a color scheme, the design work is going to be much simpler. One trick that designers often use in presentations is to leverage the color scheme as heavily as possible. If you’re new to design, you’ll likely think that this is too easy, too plain or even that it’s cheating somehow, but trust me, it’ll be much more attractive and professional than that horrid Microsoft clipart library you love so much.
To start, simply grab one of your colors from the scheme you chose and flood the background of your slide with it (I chose #631c25). Good job, there’s your background. Don’t freak out. It’ll look great. Now let’s throw in some typography.
Choosing a Font
Font choice is a major issue for non-designers. The tendency is to think that most fonts are “boring” and to look around for something exciting and fun. This inevitably leads to the use of Comic Sans or some other equally hideous font.
Unless you’re an elementary school teacher, your presentations should never look like this. Instead, why don’t you try one of those “boring” fonts to see if you can come up with something you like.
Combining fonts can be a tricky task and can take a trained eye to pull off. Fortunately, font designers have already created collections that work well together and if you’re not a designer, they make it easy to pull off great typography. The trick is to just stay in a family. Again, I know this sounds lame, but it works really well if you make sure the two styles you choose are very different.
For instance, I chose a Helvetica Bold Condensed and a Helvetica Light for my cover slide. Notice how different the fonts are from each other in terms of thickness. Choosing two styles that are relatively close causes visual confusion and should be avoided as a general rule of thumb. Instead, what you want is contrast and plenty of it.
Alignment and Layout
Notice a few things about the way I set up this slide. First, I used a strong left alignment for the text. As I say in just about every design article I write, center alignment should be a last resort, not a first. It tends to be the weakest text alignment that you can choose, having a hard edge increases readability considerably (notice that book pages aren’t center-aligned).
Also, notice the generous whitespace that I used. Remember that you don’t have to eat up every inch of space. Giving your text room to breathe helps your layout immensely and gives the design a clean look.
Adding an Image
At this point you might be wondering why you wasted your time reading so I could give you such plain advice. The truth is, most people that create presentations could improve them by 100% from following the advice above. However, I realize minimalism may be too extreme for some folks so let’s throw in an image to make it look nice.
Since our text is on the left, I wanted to find something a little heavy on the right. The general theme that I’ll go for is “City photos” assuming I had some sort of architecture or city-centric presentation to give. Again, you’ll have to choose iamges relevant to your own topic.
I grabbed this Flickr Creative Commons image from photographer Ben Spreng .
Now, if we just made this image our background, the text would become unreadable and we would be ditching our color scheme. What we’re going to do instead is set it on top of the colored slide and set our blending mode to Overlay. Then throw your opacity to around 45%.
As you can see, this helps the slide look much more interesting but keeps the text and colors fairly intact. It’s a simple solution that adds a lot of interest to an otherwise plain design.
Adding Content Slides
The cover may seem like it’s only a tiny part of the battle, but you’ve actually already set the tone for the entire presentation. You’ve got your theme, color scheme and fonts already in place. Now you just need to set up a few different layouts for your content.
The thing to keep in mind is to keep everything extremely simple, and that includes the level of content that you include. Apart from design, these are just good presentation tactics that you’ll learn in every public speaking class. Filling your slides with everything you’re going to say makes you unnecessary. You could just email everyone the slides and shut up.
Instead, the slides are merely meant to be a visual aid. Show a slide with your overall topic or main point, then speak the rest, without reading. Nothing is worse than watching a guy read his note cards word-for-word for thirty minutes, except perhaps watching a guy turn his back to the audience so he can actually read his slides out loud to you the whole time! You may laugh, but I’ve seen it happen folks.
For our first content slide, we’ll grab another Flickr photo and set it to the bottom portion of our slide at full bleed. Then we’ll set the top to another color from our scheme and toss in some text using the same exact formatting that we used on the cover.
See how this closely resembles the theme we’ve already established while still looking significantly different? This is they key to good presentation design: cohesiveness without redundancy.
Now for our third slide, we can simply do the inverse of the second slide with a new color and a new image .
Adding Informational Elements
It would be nice if every slide ever presented could work in a full bleed image, but the truth is that this simply isn’t practical. It will often be the case that you’re presenting graphical information or some other item that isn’t necessarily a photo.
My advice here is to try to stick as close to your theme as possible. For the slide below I flooded the entire background with a solid color from our original scheme and made a quick 3D graph with white columns (I drew a few flat boxes in Illustrator and applied a 3D effect).
As you can see, this slide is very information-focused and yet it doesn’t sacrifice the aesthetics and simplicity we’ve already established.
You’re All Set
From here you might come up with one or two more alternate slide designs and then rotate between them for the duration of your speech. The result is a presentation that is beautiful, very readable and highly professional. The bonus is that the simple, straightforward design will probably result in less work than a clip-art-filled horror show.
Most of the time, great design doesn’t mean being particularly artistic or knowing how to create amazing complex layouts. Instead, it’s about presenting information in an attractive and user-friendly way. With this goal in mind you realize that you’re probably trying way too hard if your end result is ugly. Try cutting out half or more of the elements on one of your slides and giving what’s left a strong left or right alignment with plenty of whitespace.
I hope this article has convinced you to abandon that clip art gallery once and for all. The benefits of clean, minimal design in presentations are clear: the information is easier to take in and the end result is more professional than the mess of information you typically see in presentation slides.

How to Get Design Ideas on Powerpoint
When you’re building a PowerPoint presentation: naturally, you want the presentation to stand out from the rest and capture the attention of your audience with your design ideas. To do so, you’ll need a striking presentation design to display your content in an interesting, attractive manner. For your presentation to come to fruition, we need to put on the “designer hat” because stellar design ideas are key.
Sometimes just having an expert look things over can go a long way. The team at Presentation Geeks can do a free consult based on your existing PowerPoint deck and provide you a same-day estimate for revamping it.
Amazing design ideas for PowerPoint won’t appear out of thin air. That’s why we’ve gathered up these five reliable strategies for you to get design ideas in PowerPoint. Let’s put an end to generic design presentations and start making PowerPoints that truly pop!
1. Build From Pre-Existing PowerPoint Templates to get your design ideas out!
If you are fairly new or it is your first time using Office 365 PowerPoint, and you are not a PowerPoint designer, It would be best to make sure you review the pre-existing templates, they are, without a doubt, the quickest and easiest method for getting design ideas in PowerPoint.
These templates aren’t the most innovative design options out there, they can serve as excellent design suggestions, that can automatically turn on the designer creative juices and get the design ideas following. No one starts out as a designer in PowerPoint: pre-existing templates can help you gain the perspective that you need to become a full-on presentation designer.
Before you start sifting through PowerPoint templates, you will need to keep in mind that there are two main template types: slide layouts and master slide layouts. A slide layout is a term that PowerPoint uses for a template for just one slide. A template for an entire presentation is called a master slide layout.
Look through the preset PowerPoint templates will automatically show you what design suggestions looks good as far as colour scheme, text size, text placement, image placement, and other factors that affect the overall design of the slides.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to keep these templates exactly the same you can use them to use as design ideas or first time starting point – you can edit them for a more custom design.
Edit Templates For Unique Design Ideas in PowerPoint
You can make all sorts of edits to pre-existing Office PowerPoint templates select under the “View” tab, which gives you access to PowerPoint’s full scope of editing tools. To add elements to a design template, first select “View”, then select and click “Slide Master” in the dropdown menu or the button on the ribbon. Then select the “themes” tab to the right and select the template you want to use.
From here, you can add all sorts of design elements to the slide, including images, charts, tables, media, etc, select the “insert placeholder tab” If you’re using a master slide layout and want to change the title, footer, or background, you can do so by unchecking the designated boxes under “Master Layout” and “Background”.
While exploring pre-existing PowerPoint templates can be a great way to get a sense of what you’re looking for, don’t rely on them exclusively. Since these templates are incredibly easy to use, herds of people have already used them (and, more than that, have used them countless times before).
So, be wary of the fact that a presentation built from pre-existing templates is likely to look derivative. Instead, say to yourself that you want the templates to “show me design ideas” and think about how you can use them to customise and not look the same all the other presentations.
2. Hire A Professional Design Agency
With a professional design ideas team like Presentation Geeks on your side, you can stop worrying about brainstorming design ideas and how to get design ideas out- instead you can move on with the rest of your to-do list.

4. Draw Inspiration Like a Designer from Magazines and Websites
Awesome design ideas for your Office 365 PowerPoint presentation can be found far beyond using the PowerPoint designer itself. Some of the best design ideas – from colour themes to graphic layouts to fonts and more, are found in other content mediums, namely magazines and websites. BRING ON THE DESIGN IDEAS!
Current issues of magazines are great indicators of current design trends. Nowadays, you’ll typically see clean, modern layouts with carefully selected colour schemes and thoughtfully placed graphics.

Learning how to design an engaging LinkedIn Presentation can help connect with your audience in a more visual and engaging way. Your impression numbers and click-through rates will see an exponential increase just by utilizing some simple design tips.
5. Try Out Designer Templates From Media Sites
You can find a plethora of unique PowerPoint templates online, namely from leading media sites like Shutterstock and Envato. These websites are home to thousands of different services such as: images, videos, vectors, music tracks, templates, and other digital resources.
Many people use these sites for help to get design ideas or to use in a creation of a website, but you can also use them to find fresh, new PowerPoint slide templates created by a professional PowerPoint designer.
The drawback to when you select a PowerPoint design template sources is the price: you’ll have to pay for any templates that you want to use when you download and there is a lack of support – the lack of support can be a problem if you don’t know a PowerPoint designer and if you have downloaded an older version that is not Office 365.
If price and/or support don’t bother you, Envato has multiple subscription plans to suit the needs of individuals, teams, and enterprises. The individual and team Envato plans are priced well under $20 per month.
Shutterstock offers some opportunities to get free graphics – people who sign up for the site with a free account get one free image per week. You can also pay for a Shutterstock annual plan, which grants you 10, 50, 350, or 750 images per month, depending on your choice.
If you’re not up to pay for the templates on Shutterstock or Envato, you can simply search through these sites to select design ideas. From there, you can use the design ideas and build your slides from scratch or clicking the design ideas button with you use PowerPoint designer – this process is more time-consuming than simply downloading a template, but it will save you some dough.

How to Create a Comparison Chart in PowerPoint (Template Inside)
Comparison charts and tables are wonderful tools for training and education as they have different applications in many industries. Learn how to create well-structured and visually appealing PowerPoint comparison charts with our step-by-step guide.
What is a Comparison Chart?
A comparison chart is a graphic that displays similarities and differences between two sets or multiple items of data. These can be products, concepts, timeframes, entities, or any other group that has a correlation.
Comparison charts and comparison tables serve as excellent aids for research, business, education, and decision-making. Their visual format enhances the ability to discern patterns and highlight discrepancies and differences among the compared items. The charts like Bar, Pie, Gannt or even Venn diagrams, are widely used in different online training programs. It’s a great way to compare, for instance, the present outcomes of a company to its projected performance.
How to Create a Comparison Chart in PowerPoint
PowerPoint has strong functionalities to generate comparison charts in various formats effortlessly. Here is our comprehensive step-by-step guide on how to create a comparison chart for your PowerPoint presentations .
Step 1: Open PowerPoint
Naturally, the first step is to launch PowerPoint with double click on your device and create a new presentation or use an existing one.
Step 2: Insert a chart
In a fresh slide choose the Insert tab in the top menu. And then click Chart on the illustrations tab.
You will see a new window with many different chart formats to choose from. Pick a column format for your diagram chart .
In this example, we will select the Stacked Column chart, as it provides a clear view of the different components.
Step 3: Populate your comparison chart with data
Once you have selected your chart, it’s time to enter the data. PowerPoint makes it very easy for you by displaying a spreadsheet window where you can insert and modify all the parameters.
Alternatively, you can compare data you already have by copying the table from Excel and pasting it into PowerPoint.
PowerPoint will initially generate four categories, each with three segments. However, you have the flexibility to add or remove categories as needed. For an organized and clean design, it’s recommended to limit your comparison charts to a maximum of six categories so you can compare your data more effectively.
Step 4: Apply the format
Now that you have entered your data, all that is left to do is make it visually appealing. Click on the chart to access the format menu on the right-hand side of the screen.
There, you can adjust the width of columns, change the colors, and even apply shadows, borders, and other design items that will enhance the visuals of your charts.
And just as easy as that, you have an informative and engaging comparison charts to use in your presentation!
How to Make a 2D Comparison Chart?
Creating a 2D comparison chart for your PowerPoint presentation is as easy as following the steps shown above. You just need to select a bidimensional design.
There are plenty to choose from; besides the traditional column format, PPT offers pies, bars, lines, radars, graphs, a Venn diagram, and even a combination of those elements.
Another way to compare data is to embed a PowerPoint into your presentation. This is great when you want to repurpose quality content you already have.
How to Create Comparison Tables in PowerPoint
While charts primarily focus on presenting numerical data, comparison tables allow for more qualitative comparisons. Here is how you can make comparison tables in PowerPoint:
Step 1: Open PowerPoint and add a new slide
Once again, we need to start by launching PowerPoint on our device. Add a new slide for your table. You can add a title on top of your slide.
Step 2: Insert a Table
Go to the Insert tab on the top menu and click on Table . Then, select the number of rows and columns you need for your comparison table.
PowerPoint allows you to do this by dragging your mouse over the submenu, but you can also click on the Insert table button and enter the specific number of rows and columns for your charts.
Step 3: Enter the data
Enter the data you want to compare into the table. The top row can be used for headings, such as attributes or features you’re comparing. The subsequent rows represent the items or entities you’re comparing in your analysis.
Typically, the parameter with the highest number of items occupies the Y-axis (rows) since you can add any number of rows that you need. In contrast, the X-axis has a more restricted capacity, making it advisable to maintain it as short as possible. See the examples below.

Why Should I Pay Anyone to Write My Essay?
If you’re suddenly wondering, “Can someone do my paper for me?”, there’s likely a very good reason for that. After all, college is an eye-opening experience for most students. Not only is it your first attempt at independent life free from parents’ oversight, but it’s also a completely new level of academic requirements and independent study many aren’t ready for.
And if you’re an overachiever or a perfectionist, keeping up with all the classes, assignments, extracurriculars, and side gigs will keep you up most nights. You will soon forget about your plans to discover the party scene, visit your parents every other weekend, or find your soulmate on campus. If you try to stay on top of all your responsibilities, you’ll likely burn out or suffer an anxiety attack sooner rather than later.
So don’t feel bad if your thoughts go from “Can someone write my paper?” to “Write me a paper asap!” within the first few weeks of the college term. You’re not alone, and it’s perfectly normal to struggle in a new environment and buckle under the weight of elevated expectations.
Luckily, you don’t have to suffer in silence or give up on your dream of a college degree. Instead, you can seek help. And nowadays, it’s as easy as typing “Make an essay for me” in live chat.
Why Should I Choose Write Paper For Me As My School Assistant?
A quick Google search will unearth dozens of do-my-paper services, adding to your stress, instead of alleviating it. But unfortunately, you cannot trust the first company you find, tell the writers “Write a paper for me”, and hope for the best. Although you may be lucky enough to stumble upon a reliable company by accident, choosing a trustworthy service requires some research.

We Employ Expert Academics to Make Your “Write My Paper” Order Perfect
