Create an image coming into focus

This is a PowerPoint “work on your own” tutorial, demonstrating how to create an image coming into focus.  We’ve seen tons of commercials of “Let us focus on the problem” or “Bring your business into focus” and other various ways this template and imagery could easily work.  The graphics in the template are simple Microsoft Clip Art items, and are simply placeholders for your own creation.  The crossfade effect which is achieved through the presentation is very popular for numerous marketing environments, presentations and graphic asthetics, and can be done by simply using PowerPoint’s animation features.

With that being said, here’s the project for you to play with on your own, and as always, let us know if you have any questions!

    Cool tutorials, not sure why you need to save 10 pictures on the ‘Focus on an Image’ tutorial!

      It can be achieved by only using the first and last image and a slower “fade out” + “fade in” as well. Part of the purpose of the multiple saves allows the user to determine if the amount of the “fuzz” is too much in which case they can use one of the previous versions. The shorter alternative would be to use the Copy+Paste Special>Paste as PNG and repeat that process. By doing this you are able to achieve a higher amount of “fuzz” than what you get on a single use of soften/sharpen. Thanks for the feedback! :)

  2. I am brand new to this site. All I can say is “Wow!”

    I found myself just looking at so many animations just to familiarize myself. Next thing, I am saying to myself is “Might as well download them.”

    LOL – There is just TOO MUCH!

    It will just have to wait until I am really building content.

    Just great stuff. Thank you.

      You can always download our add-in (PPT 2007, 2010 and 2013 compatible) so you can simply download straight to your PowerPoint presentation while you’re in the middle of your development, rather than coming back to the site, then back to PowerPoint etc. We love hearing that our subscribers are enjoying our content and please let us know if you ever have any questions!
