How to Create Professional-Looking Slides with a Slide Presentation Maker
Creating a professional-looking slide presentation can be a daunting task. There are many different software programs available, and each one has its own set of features and capabilities. Fortunately, there is an easier way to create professional-looking slides: using a slide presentation maker. A slide presentation maker is an online tool that allows you to quickly and easily create stunning slides with minimal effort. Here are some tips on how to use a slide presentation maker to create professional-looking slides.
Choose the Right Template
The first step in creating professional-looking slides is to choose the right template. Most slide presentation makers offer a variety of templates that you can choose from. These templates are designed to make it easy for you to create slides that look great and are easy to read. When choosing a template, make sure that it is appropriate for the type of presentation you are creating. For example, if you are creating a business presentation, then you should choose a template that has a professional look and feel.
Add Visual Elements
Once you have chosen the right template, the next step is to add visual elements to your slides. Visual elements such as images, charts, and graphs can help make your slides more engaging and easier to understand. Most slide presentation makers allow you to upload images from your computer or search for images online. You can also add charts and graphs by selecting them from the library of options available in the software.
Include Animations and Transitions
Adding animations and transitions can help make your slides more dynamic and engaging. Animations can be used to draw attention to important points or highlight key information in your slides. Transitions can be used to smoothly transition between different sections of your presentation or between different slides. Most slide presentation makers offer a wide range of animations and transitions that you can use in your presentations.
Creating professional-looking slides doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming when you use a slide presentation maker. By following these tips, you will be able to quickly and easily create stunning presentations that will impress your audience.

- स्लाइड बनाना, बदलाव करना, और उन्हें पसंद के मुताबिक बनाना
स्लाइड जोड़ना, मिटाना और व्यवस्थित करना
आप प्रज़ेंटेशन में स्लाइड जोड़ सकते हैं, मिटा सकते हैं, और उनका क्रम बदल सकते हैं, ताकि आप उन्हें अपने हिसाब से व्यवस्थित कर सकें. आप अपनी स्लाइड में नंबर भी जोड़ सकते हैं.
स्लाइड जोड़ना, डुप्लीकेट बनाना, और मिटाना
स्लाइड शामिल करना.
मौजूदा स्लाइड के जैसे लेआउट वाली स्लाइड जोड़ने के लिए:
- अपने कंप्यूटर पर, Google Slides में प्रज़ेंटेशन खोलें.
कोई अलग लेआउट वाली स्लाइड जोड़ने के लिए:
- कोई स्लाइड चुनें.
अपनी स्लाइड की थीम या लेआउट बदलने का तरीका जानें.
- अपने कंप्यूटर पर, Google Slides में कोई प्रज़ेंटेशन खोलें.

Unit 1 Use a Theme Template and Slide Layouts to Create a Presentation
3 Create a Slide Presentation
Create a slide presentation, topics include:.
- Choose a Theme Template
Create Slide Content
Create a new slide, multi level bulleted lists.
A PowerPoint has two methods for creating a slide presentation:
- Choose a theme template
- Create a blank presentation (this method is covered in Unit 3)
PowerPoint software has built in and free online pre-designed templates that contain various color schemes and pre-arranged elements in a slide, eg. text and graphics. Select a template and PowerPoint will format the entire presentation according to that template.
Steps to choosing a theme template:
- Open PowerPoint.
- At the PowerPoint window, click the File tab, then click New.
- Once you have selected the desired template, it will be displayed in normal view. New slides can be added as needed.
Tips & Tricks
A theme template can be added to a presentation before, during or after you have added the presentation content.
To apply various templates to a presentation, click the Design tab, then click on the desired template in the themes group.
Whether you are using a pre-made theme template or working from your own design, it is very easy to insert a new slide.
- In the slide pane click on the slide where you would like the new slide to appear below.
- The new slide should appear below the selected slide. If you want to add a new slide between two, select the first of the two slides and click New Slide .
Entering text and images into your presentation slide is easy and fun. When using the theme template the first slide to appear in Normal view is called the Title Slide .
The title slide is the slide that is used to introduce the presentation to the audience. It has two text placeholders for text: title text placeholder and sub-title text placeholder. Placeholders are the building blocks for a PowerPoint slide.
To insert text in a placeholder, left click inside of the textbox and begin typing. Once you have entered text, click outside the text box to see how your text looks. The placeholder then becomes an object. An object is any item on a slide that can be manipulated. Objects are the building blocks that make up a slide. A text object can moved around and repositioned on a slide.
A object is selected when there is a gray, bold outline around the object, and when the cursor turns into a cross. Around the selected object are small white circles that are called sizing handles. You can drag the handles to position the object.
To apply formatting to text inside an object, select the text with your cursor, then click on the Home tab and in the Font group add text attributes such as bold, underline, and italics. The Paragraph group, located next to the Font group, contains commands that allow you to change the alignment of text, insert numbers or bullets to lists, and indent text.
You can also edit your text by accessing the Font dialogue box by clicking the Font group dialogue box launcher. (The dialogue box launcher is the small button containing a diagonal arrow that displays in the lower right corner of the group.) The Font dialogue box includes special effects such as: double strikethrough, superscript and subscript.
Another quick and easy way to format slides is by using a slide master. A Slide Master will reduce the steps needed to format all the slides in a presentation. Any changes made in the slide master will affect all slides in the presentation. This allows for consistency in any presentation.
When you choose a theme template PowerPoint automatically adds a Slide master. To format the slide master click the View tab and then choose Slide Master located in the Presentation View group.
A slide master appears in the slide pane and in the Outline/Slide pane. The largest thumbnail in the pane is the slide master and the other thumbnails represent associated layouts.Click on the master slide or a specific layout to apply formatting or themes. Once formatting changes have been made click on Close Master View to return to the normal view.
For more information on Slide Masters take this link to Microsoft Tips for using Slide Masters .
PowerPoint allows information to be displayed as multilevel bulleted lists. Bulleted lists are used in PowerPoint to display levels of importance within the presentation. Various slide layouts in the Slide Layout task pane contain bullets. To add multi levels to a bulleted list you need to choose the appropriate layout.
The first-level bullet will be displayed under the title placeholder. Once you have typed your text next to the first-level bullet press Enter on your keyboard. The new first-level bullet automatically appears. Press Tab on your keyboard and the first-level bullet becomes a second level bullet. Press Shift + Tab this will decrease the indent and bring the bullet back to first level.
Another method to add levels to your presentation is by clicking the decrease list level or increase list level buttons on the Paragraph group in the Home tab.
You can customize the bullets in your presentation by selecting the Bullets and Numbering dialogue box from Paragraph group located in the Home tab. Select the bullet text, click on the drop down arrow next to Bullets or Numbering, click on Bullets and Numbering , then choose the from the pre-designed bullets.
Now that you are able to create a presentation let us move on to view and save presentations.

How to Add, Duplicate, Move, Delete or Hide Slides in PowerPoint
When working on a presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint, you will most likely perform actions such as creating new slides, changing their order, arranging them by theme, deleting unnecessary slides or even temporarily hiding slides. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to do all of this to turn any of our templates into your own presentation.
How to add a new slide in PowerPoint
How to duplicate a slide in powerpoint, how to delete a slide in powerpoint, how to move slides in powerpoint, how to hide slides in powerpoint.
First, let’s see how to create a new slide . There are several ways to do this:
- Select any slide and press Ctrl + M in Windows, or Cmd + M in Mac. A new slide will be created with the same design as the selected slide.
- Go to the Slides section of the Home tab and click on New Slide (if you click on the little arrow, you’ll also be able to choose the design for this new slide).
Creating a new slide might not be always the best option for you. You might want to keep a certain clipped image or part of a text from a previous slide in a new one. In this case, it’s best if you duplicate a slide.
To duplicate a slide , select it, right-click on it and choose Duplicate Slide.
You might also need to delete a slide from your presentation because you do no longer want it. To delete a slide , select it, right-click on it and choose Delete Slide. You can also select it and just press the Delete or Backspace key. Remember that you can select multiple slides by holding the Ctrl key (Cmd in Mac) while clicking on them. This might be useful if you want to remove several slides at the same time.
You can also rearrange the slides , that is, moving them from one position to another. To do that, select the ones you want to move and drag them to the desired position. As I mentioned before, to select multiple slides, hold the Ctrl key (Cmd in Mac) while clicking on them.
To do this, select the slide or slides that you want to hide, right-click on them and choose Hide Slide . They will no longer be visible in your presentation. Any hidden slide will have its number crossed out, so you can identify them easily.
We’ve reached the end of the tutorial. If you want to keep learning about PowerPoint, stay tuned for more Slidesgo School content. We also have tutorials on how to work with presentations in Google Slides, so check them out too. Learn with us and use our templates to create awesome presentations!
