    Great explanation and video!

    As a newbie to putting Powerpoint presentations together I’m sure there must be many more ‘Presenter Media’ members just like me who would welcome more of the same ‘how to’ type video’s.

    Bring em on!

    The Best Best Powerpoint tutorial I’ve seen. Easy, simple not scary. I’m a newbie too.

    I like these tutorials! Thank you for putting these together.
    How can I change the colours in a template? I know how to change the colours in clip art, but the template changes are more restrictive. For example, I was using the “red stands alone” template, but my company colours are grey and orange. I would like to change the red ball to orange. If I recolour the image, the whole image turns orange. Is there a way to do this?

      Hi Julie, We are currently working on more ways to customize our templates. Most of the elements in our templates are like photographs and video and therefore are not as easy to recolor as simple PowerPoint shapes.

  4. Admiring the dedication you put into your blog and in depth information you offer. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed material. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    I have been using presenter media for nearly two years and i cant speak highly enough about it Thank You.

    However i need some help. I want to add the reveal puzzle to a power point I have done but no matter what I do when I click on say jigsaw shape 2 it takes me to my slide 2
    What am I doing wrong? Any help anyone?

    Thanks Carolyn

      Carolyn:

      Each puzzle piece corresponds to a specific slide that it should move to when you click on the puzzle piece. After moving to its corresponding slide, click the “next” arrow located in the bottom right corner of the screen and it will direct you back to slide # 1 with an additional piece missing.
