Using PresenterMedia Video Backgrounds

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

A short video tutorial showing how to use video grounds in PowerPoint. This tutorial will illustrate how to download a PresenterMedia video background and explore how to use our video backgrounds.

Due to limitations in older versions of PowerPoint, video backgrounds are designed to be used in PowerPoint 2010, PowerPoint 2013, or PowerPoint 2011 (Mac) or Keynote 09 (Mac). PowerPoint 2007 and older will not allow text or objects in front of a video background. In these cases, we have provided areas for text and other content.

Downloading My First PresenterMedia Template

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

A short video tutorial to help you get started using PresenterMedia and downloading your first PowerPoint template.

We hope that this video is helpful in getting you started using PresenterMedia templates for PowerPoint. This video will help guide you through downloading templates, changing between static and animated layouts, and copying slides from a template to an existing presentation.

Combine Slides from Multiple PowerPoint Templates

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014



You can combine several of our templates to mix and match slides from different animated templates into one presentation. In this video tutorial you can use the “Reuse Slides” function in PowerPoint 2007 and newer to combine slides from various templates.

When combining several animated templates together remember that the more animated templates you combine the larger your presentation will become. A number of video files will make your presentation quite bulky. This could be a problem if you are distributing the completed presentation.

Mac PowerPoint 2008 and 2011 instructions:

In Mac PowerPoint, inserting slides from other presentations or templates work pretty much the same way but the command is labeled differently. The function is located under the “Insert” menu. Look for Insert/Slides From/Other Presentations. In the slide finder, be sure to check “Keep Design of Original Slide” to retain the formatting, animations and other graphic elements. Otherwise PowerPoint will only copy the text and not slides design.

Downloading your first PowerPoint Animation

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Here is a short video tutorial of how to download a PresenterMedia Animation using PowerPoint. This is a simple but important process to avoid any problems and to make your animations run smoothly.

Covered in this video:

  • For PowerPoint, always download the largest animation available.  This yields the best quality.
  • After clicking the download link, always choose “SAVE” to save the image to your computer.  Choosing OPEN may end up removing the animation from the image.
  • In PowerPoint, always use the “Insert/Picture” function to place the animation in your presentation.  Inserting it as a video or copying and pasting it into your presentation can yield poor results.
