Creating an instant photo album
3. The transitions work in the same way as the Word Quick Styles list you learned
about in Chapter 3. Click where indicated in Figure 7.6 to open all of them.
4. When you roll the mouse over a transition’s icon, you will see it previewed on
the slide in the editing area.
5. To add a transition to a slide, click it. If you want to remove a transition again,
add the transition called None.
To apply an animation to a picture or text box, follow these three steps:
1. Click the picture or the text box you want to animate.
2. Go to the Animations ribbon, shown in Figure 7.6.
3. Use the pulldown menu indicated in Figure 7.6 to select an animation. When
you hover over an animation, it is previewed in the editing area. Click it
to add it, and click on No Animation in the pulldown menu to remove the
effect again.
Previewing animations
To see the transition and animations applied to a particular slide, click on the
shooting star underneath its slide number in the navigation pane (indicated in
Figure 7.4). In Offi ce 2007, you can also click the Preview button on the
Animations ribbon. In Offi ce 2010, this will only show you the animations and you have
to click the Preview button on the Transitions ribbon to see those.
To see the cumulative effect of all your transitions and animations, play the slide
show from the start. The transitions are quick, but they can seem slow if viewers
are forced to watch too many of them when they really want to see your photos.
As a rule of thumb, the more stunning a transition is, the less frequently you
should use it.

You’ve now learned everything you need to know to create albums that look great,
and to edit other PowerPoint templates for other projects.
