Click Slide 1 and change the subtitle Student Name to Carl Peterson.
Although SmartArt conveniently groups all shapes together within a SmartArt graphic, you want to work with the shapes in this graphic individually. You can use the Convert to Shapes command to help you do this.
Convert the SmartArt on Slide 3 to shapes and ungroup the shapes. Remove the two-headed arrow at the base of the rectangles.
Now that this is no longer a SmartArt graphic, you can format each shape individually to display three differently colored rectangles.
Change the fill color of the Closeups rectangle to Blue-Gray, Accent 1, Lighter 40%. Change the Landscapes rectangle to Blue-Gray, Accent 1, Darker 25%. Ensure that the Animals rectangle is set to Blue-Gray, Accent 1.
By default, two guides display onscreen that intersect in the middle of the slide. You can add more guides to help align objects away from the center of the slide and to break the slide into even spaced horizontal and vertical thirds.
Click Slide 4 and display the Rulers and Guides. Move the vertical guide to the right until 2.25 displays. Right-click the vertical guide and click Add Vertical Guide. Drag the new vertical guide to the left of 0 until 2.25 displays. Move the horizontal guide up until 1.25 displays. Right-click the horizontal guide and click Add Horizontal Guide. Drag the new horizontal guide down below 0 to 1.25.
Now that the slide is broken into thirds, you can place the images according to the Rules of Thirds design placement principle. This produces an overall balanced look to the slide. Guides can easily be removed from the slide after using them for placement.
Drag the barn picture so that the bottom edge of the picture is aligned with the lower guideline and the left edge is positioned at the 0.5” mark on the ruler. Drag the moon picture so that the bottom edge of the picture is aligned with the lower guideline and using the Smart Guides ensure the images are evenly spaced. Deselect the Guides check box.
PowerPoint provides gridlines which are more numerous to allow for refined placement of objects. You use these to place the smaller objects – the ribbons.
Drag the Old Barn ribbon so that the left edge is positioned along the gridline that is set 2” to the right of the 0” on the horizontal ruler. The bottom edge should be positioned along the gridline that is set 3” below the 0” on the vertical ruler. Drag the Full Moon ribbon so that the left edge is positioned along the gridline that is set 5” to the left of the 0” on the horizontal ruler. The bottom edge should be positioned along the gridline that is set 3” below the 0” on the vertical ruler.
You can use the Selection Pane to help control the stacking order of objects on a slide or to display or delete objects and images.
Click Slide 5 and open the Selection Pane. Hide Heart 6, Heart 7, and Heart 8. Delete the flower and shell pictures. Display Heart 6, Heart 7, and Heart 8. Bring the violin picture to the front.
The three remaining shapes are not yet grouped so you can use the automatically appearing Smart Guides to help you position each of the shapes. Once they are in the correct position, you can group the objects so they won’t slip out of alignment with each other.
Align middle the three shapes. Drag Heart 8 next to the text box. Drag Heart 7 to the right edge of the slide. Position Heart 6 evenly between Hearts 7 and 8. Group the three shapes. Close the Selection Pane.
You want to add a few more examples of your photography to your presentation. You decide a cute dog will evoke emotion in your audience, so you add a new slide and title.
Insert a new Slide 6 with Title and Content layout. Type Beautiful animals in the title placeholder.
To make the image of the dog more impactful, you modify the image size and remove the image background to make the dog really stands out on the slide.
Insert Photo1.jpg in the right content placeholder. Size the picture to a height of 6” and a width of 9”. Position it horizontally at 5.87” from Top Left Corner and vertically 0.75” from the Top Left Corner. Remove the background but ensure both ears are kept and that the dog’s body extends down to match the title placeholder’s bottom edge.
Insert a new Slide 7 with Title and Content layout. Type Abstract florals in the title placeholder.
After adding another new slide and title, you insert a floral image. While the flowers are pretty, you want to show how a familiar object can take on an entirely new look by formatting the image. Then you compress all the images to reduce the overall file size of the presentation.
Insert Photo2.jpg in the right content placeholder. Deselect Lock aspect ratio and size the picture to a height of 5.8” and a width of 8.4”. Position it horizontally at 4.3” from Top Left Corner and vertically 0.84”from the Top Left Corner. Set the color Tone to Temperature: 4700K and Corrections to Brightness: 0% (Normal) Contrast -20%. Apply the Cutout artistic effect. Compress all pictures in the presentation using the On-screen (150 ppi) setting.
As another example of your photographic skill and creativity, you use a landscape image as a background for a slide.
Click Slide 8 and add Photo3.jpg as the background. Adjust transparency to 50%.
After adjusting the transparency of the image, you show how a small amount of text can be used to create a slide that conveys a breath-taking message.
Size the width of the text box on Slide 8 to 13.33” and align it center and bottom. Set the fill to Black, Background 1, Lighter 5%. Change the font to White, Text 1.
Convert the SmartArt on Slide 9 to shapes. Ungroup all bulleted shapes, rectangles, and arrows.
By adding animation, you can show what happens when a client hires you to do photographic work for them. You start with the client’s role in the process to show that this is a customer-driven process.
Select the first bulleted shape and apply the Fade animation. Set it to start After Previous with a Duration of 01.00 and Delay of 00.50. Use the Animation Painter to format all remaining shapes, rectangles, and bullets.
You continue to use animation to reveal your role in the process and the expected outcome.
Use the Animation Pane to make Shape 5 (first arrow) display after the first bulleted shape and blue rectangle. Make Arrow Circular 8 (second arrow) display after the second bulleted shape and blue rectangle. Close the Animation Pane.
A Morph transition can be used to illustrate how photographs can bring you joy and preserve memories. You begin with slide showing an image of the earth and a woman’s outstretched hand.
Duplicate Slide 10. In the new Slide 11, replace the title with Bring the world to you
Adding a Morph transition makes a seamless and entertaining way to make your point.
Position the earth image horizontally at 8.05” from Top Left Corner and vertically at 3.71” from Top Left Corner. Apply Morph transition for Slide 11. Set the Duration to 03.00 and set it to advance after 00:02.00.
You add a trigger to the title of the slide so that an image of a woman displays as the center of the daisy. Her smile and hand gestures indicate she is a happy customer and that your audience will be equally pleased with your photographs.
Apply the Fade animation to the client picture on Slide 2. Set a trigger On Click of for Title 17.
Because you will show this presentation to several different audiences, you may not always want to present the slides sequentially. You can add a Summary Zoom slide to quickly move between different sections in the presentation based on that audience’s needs.
Create a Summary Zoom using Slides 1 and 8. Type Nature’s Beauty in the title placeholder of the new Slide 1.
