Figure 23-18:
The Transitions tab
displays a gallery
of transition styles,
which govern how
a slideshow moves
from one slide to the
next. Click the More
button (circled) to
open a menu of even
more transitions.
PowerPoint 2010 has
some new transitions,
like Vortex, Ripple,
Switch, and Ferris
Wheel, so check
them out.
Tweaking Transition Effects
The Effect Options button works the same way for transitions as it does for
animations. Apply a transition to a slide, and then click Transitions Effect Options (Alt,
K, O). The menu that appears shows the options available for the kind of transition
you’re using. For example, if you’re using a Push transition, in which the new slide
appears to push the previous slide out of the way, Effect Options let you specify
whether you want the new slide to push its way in from the left, right, bottom, or top.
Adding Sound to a Transition
Transitions can play a sound as they switch from one slide to the next. You could
have a cash register ring when the slide with quarterly profits appears, for example,
or applause for a slide naming the employee of the month. Cute.
To add a sound to a slide’s transition, go to the Transitions tab’s Timing section and
then click the Sound drop-down list (Alt, K, U). Choose the sound you want from
the list (click Other Sound at the bottom of the list to see more). If you want the
sound to keep playing until another sound takes its place (such as a sound that plays
when the next slide enters), then turn on Loop Until Next Sound at the bottom of
the menu.
