1.1 Create presentations
Creating attractive presentations from scratch can be time-consuming. You can save
time by basing your presentation on one of the templates that come with PowerPoint.
Two types of templates are available when creating a new presentation:
Design template This is a blank presentation with a theme, and sometimes
graphics, already applied to it. Some templates supply only a title slide and leave it to you
to add the other slides you need; other templates supply an example of each of the
available slide layouts.
Content template From the PowerPoint starting screen, you can preview and
down load presentation templates that are available from the Office website. These
templates provide not only the design but also suggestions for content that is
appropriate for different types of presentations, such as reports or product launches.
After downloading the template, you simply customize the content provided in the
template to meet your needs.
