Creativity with Pictures in PowerPoint

Let's face it. What would a PowerPoint presentation be without some text on the slides? Hopefully, you restrict the text on the slide to as little as possible. (Tip - Refer to Item #2 on this list of The 10 Most Common Presentation Mistakes.)

Now it is time for some fun with pictures and PowerPoint. All you need is some text on the slide, and a great picture.

Refer to the image above to see a Before and After of the same text on the slide. I kept the slide background to a plain white just for this illustration. Likely you will have added a background color or a design theme to dress up your presentation.
