Powerpoint Overview

What is Powerpoint?

New Microsoft PowerPoint is cleaner and primed for use on tablets and phones, so you can swipe and tap your way through presentations. Presenter View automatically adapts to your projection set-up, and you can even use it on a single monitor. Themes now come with variations, which make it simpler to hone in on the look you want. And when you’re working with others, you can add comments to ask questions and get feedback.

The number one presentation software package

I've created innumerable presentations for clients big and small. In my many years of using the product and sending presentations to people all around the globe, I have never once had someone tell me they could not open a file or report any problems with their presentation. It takes some practice to truly master, but once you've spent quality time working with the software you can do some good stuff.

I've had a very positive experience with Powerpoint and would recommend it to almost anyone. Great software that has many features and is very easy to use.

My review after using PowerPoint

The advantages and disadvantages of PowerPoint introductions demonstrate that with watchful arranging, any account can be improved for the individuals who are partaking in the occasion. Without that arranging, the introduction may accomplish more damage than anything else to the account.

PowerPoint is the Gold Standard for Presentation Software - Recommended!

PowerPoint is designed for giving presentations. Back in the day we'd give these presentations in a room via a projector, but now we give our presentations online through screen-sharing services like GoToMeeting. PowerPoint is great because it still allows us to give that same presentation, with our slides, animations, graphics, videos, media, charts, reports, and so on, through our computer screen. I can pre-record my presentation as part of the PowerPoint, or speak live. I have a lot of options and PowerPoint provides even more through its software.

Those familiar with Microsoft will have no problem with the PowerPoint interface. And those new to Microsoft will get the hang of it quickly, because Microsoft designs their products to be intuitive.

I've created innumerable presentations for clients big and small.

It takes some practice to truly master, but once you've spent quality time working with the software you can do some good stuff.

Pros

PowerPoint is a straightforward tool for making and showing presentations with an interface that is very much "what-you-see-is-what-you-get." It is also the dominant presentation software, meaning that you will probably never find a client or venue that will have problems with any presentation you created in PowerPoint. It is also rather versatile, allowing users to do far more that slide-based presentations. Users can create online slideshows, clickable infographics, and embed original graphics and videos.

Cons

Like all Microsoft products, PowerPoint has it's eccentricities. It could be more user-friendly, which is where some of the competing presentation apps excel. It is absolutely not good for creating original art or illustrations, even though many users seem to think so. If you want original graphics then you should be creating them in some other app (like Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.) and then importing them into PowerPoint.

I've had a very positive experience with Powerpoint and would recommend it to almost anyone. Great software that has many features and is very easy to use.

Pros

PowerPoint being part of Microsoft's vast range of Products offers a vast number of features and resources to make your presentation. Having a very clean and intuitive design to the software helps you design your presentation in a simple card format. This layout helps you plan your presentation and build on it with visual tools to help change font size's, colour, layout, shapes and even allows you to add various images onto your slides. Furthermore you can also change slide animations, add sound cue's, add 3d videos and gif's to your slides to fully customise your presentation.

Cons

In terms of Cons there are a few cons such as how sometimes this software isn't as optimized and can feel slow on some computers when you try and either add too many images or 3d file formats into your presentation. While the slide format is nice sometimes however, you want to do more than just create a simple slide structure. While you can make some interesting presentations over time you wish you can create something that is completely different to powerpoints overall structure and this is where you might pursue another product to use.

The advantages and disadvantages of PowerPoint introductions demonstrate that with watchful arranging, any account can be improved for the individuals who are partaking in the occasion. Without that arranging, the introduction may accomplish more damage than anything else to the account.

Pros

1. It is anything but difficult to download and utilize for all intents and purposes anyplace.

PowerPoint is viewed as a standard item in numerous expert settings. This enables you to take your client permit for all intents and purposes anyplace to most likely make the designs required for your introduction. It is so expected, truth be told, that you may make a negative early introduction in the event that you don't have a PowerPoint introduction to offer.

2. It can make an introduction all the more intriguing.

Notwithstanding intriguing introductions can become long and exhausting. With a vivified introduction or fascinating statements or other fun slides, you can bring individuals again from their fatigue.

3. It is anything but difficult to tweak each slide to address explicit issues.

Pictures on a slide can be diminished or expanded in scale to meet your requirements. It just takes a couple of snaps to embed, modify, and adjust pictures to make a required visual portrayal. You can even utilize bolts, pointers, or different shapes to feature key zones of data you need individuals to think about.

4. It is a basic procedure to make the track with hand-outs.

You can print each slide straightforwardly from PowerPoint. At that point, you can duplicate those slides to wind up an accommodating hand-out that can be given to every introduction member.

5. It is sensibly moderate for general experts.

Field-tested strategies for Office 365 begin at just shy of $10 eve

Cons

1. There's dependably the shot of running into specialized challenges.

Indeed, even technically knowledgeable people can keep running into introduction issues when the innovation doesn't function as planned. Possibly the PC quits working. Or on the other hand, you lose the capacity to your outlet. Or on the other hand, the overhead showcase doesn't work right. This can change the positive initial introduction of an introduction very rapidly.

2. Slides with a lot of data on them can end up overpowering.

Since there are such huge numbers of choices that can be incorporated on a PowerPoint introduction, it very well may be anything but difficult to go over the edge on the quantity of hues, sounds, shapes, and different things that can be utilized. By adding to numerous things, you can degrade the data that should be shared.

3. Is anything but a substitute for what a moderator must do.

Numerous who use PowerPoint will in general depend on the data on the slide as opposed to giving a learning account. It is anything but difficult to wind up excessively dependent on this product and overlook that there is a genuine introduction that should be finished.

4. Expenses are continually progressing.

Since it is a piece of the Office 365 bundle, you never again get an exclusive programming permit for one explicit expense. You should pay a month to month or yearly membership cost, which after some time can mean more than what the restrictive permit once advertised. You should

Pros

If you're in business, you know PowerPoint. Everyone knows PowerPoint. It's essential for any business, because we all use it. I know that if I create a presentation in PowerPoint, it will run on computers 99.9% of the places I go because everyone uses it. It's easy to use, and Microsoft has made it practically intuitive with drag-and-drop functionality. Most of us have been using PowerPoint for decades as it is, but the fact that it's become easier to use and more flexible makes it essential for any business.

Cons

Like many Microsoft products, a small business owner like myself does not have any need for many of the high-level functions of this software. Also, the cost is a factor for those who are on a shoe string budget, especially given that there are free options out there if you're willing to sacrifice some of the bells and whistles that PowerPont offers, as well as the ability to save files in Microsoft's proprietary file extension (that would allow you to open your saved file on other computers that have PowerPoint).

Sometimes when we want to send a file, there is a risk to will be damaged by a virus.
It is a project that has more presentation that distracts people by the number of movements and does not care or pay attention to the information that is being shared.
