2. Find the timing controls. In Offi ce 2010, go to the Transitions ribbon and they
are in their own group on the right (see Figure 7.9). In Offi ce 2007, go to the
Animations ribbon and you can fi nd them at the right-hand side of the
Transition to This Slide group.
3. In the Advance Slide options, tick the box beside After: (Offi ce 2007 says
Automatically After:) and use the arrows to increase or decrease the time (all
shown in Figure 7.9). For example, to have the slide changing every 30
seconds, change the numbers to read 00:30.00, or just click the number box and
type ‘30’.
Those steps will set the same timings for each slide, but you can change the timing
for an individual slide by selecting it (and only it) in the navigation pane, then
following Steps 2 and 3 in the above instructions.

There’s much more to explore in PowerPoint. You can create presentations from
scratch and design your own layouts, and you can insert your own text boxes and
pictures anywhere using the Insert tab. You can move a photo or text box around
by clicking it and dragging it, the same as you do in Word (see Chapter 3). You can
use the Font and Paragraph controls on the Home ribbon to change your text
appearance, as you did for your newsletter.
You can even change the contrast and brightness of your pictures using the Picture
Tools Format ribbon, which you fi rst used for your newsletter project in Word in
Chapter 3. The same picture styles and effects are available as you used in Word
to apply borders or 3D effects, too.
