Tip: If you’re going to be giving your slideshow on a different computer than the one you created it
on, make sure your media clips will play the way they’re supposed to. Select File➝Info➝Optimize
Compatibility (Alt, F, E, MP). PowerPoint automatically adjusts the file to make it widely compatible with
different computers.
Animating an Object
Start by selecting the object you want to set in motion and then do the following:
1. ClicktheAnimationstab.
The Animations section has a gallery showing effects you’ve used recently, as
shown in Figure 23-10. PowerPoint uses a color scheme to let you know what
kind of animation you’re looking at:
— Entrance effects are green.
— Emphasis effects are yellow.
— Exit effects are red.
2. Toseemoreeffects,clicktheMorebuttoninthelower-rightpartoftheani-
mationgallery(Alt,A,S).
A menu opens that shows you a wider range of effects, as shown in Figure 23-11.
After you’ve applied an animation,
adjust its effects here.
