Adding Graphics and Video Clips
From the shortcut menu shown in Figure 18-15, you can move an entire section of slides up
or down in the presentation. You can also delete all slides that belong to a section.
Figure 18-15 On the Slides tab in Normal view, right-click any section heading to see the
shortcut menu options shown here.
Adding Graphics and Video Clips
Graphics and video clips help you communicate complex ideas in a simple manner.
Sometimes, one well-placed image or video can tell your entire story, with no bullet points
necessary. On the downside, adding media to your presentation can significantly increase file
size. The trick is to find the right balance.
In PowerPoint, you have more options for what you can include when compared with other
Office programs. Of course, you can insert all the standard graphical object types, including
pictures, shapes, clip art, SmartArt, and WordArt text effects. This content works the same
here as it does elsewhere.
For detailed information on how to add each type of graphical object to your presentation,
see Chapter 6, “Working with Graphics and Pictures.”
Another new feature in Office 2010 is the option to add a screenshot to a document. This
option can be useful in PowerPoint if, for example, you’re creating an orientation
presentation for new employees. Screenshots can show any other part of what you see on the
display: dialog boxes for logging on or connecting to the network, web-based forms for filing
out expense reports, filled-in dialog boxes for configuring access to company e-mail, and
so on.
