Chapter 2. Creating a Basic Presentation > Creating a Presentation

Creating a Presentation

You can create a presentation in several different ways, depending on the amount of content and design assistance you need. You can create

  • A presentation using the AutoContent Wizard— The wizard chooses a design template that fits your presentation's purpose and creates a series of slides that contain content and slide layout suggestions. You can use the AutoContent Wizard when you're in a hurry, when you don't know what to say, or if you aren't yet design savvy.

  • A presentation using a design template— A design template gives you a consistent design scheme—fonts, layout, colors, and so on—into which to add slides and content. You can also create a presentation using your own template on a Web server or computer, or you can download a template from Microsoft's Web site.

  • A new presentation using an existing presentation— Using this option, you create a presentation by copying another one and then editing and modifying it. (Doing this doesn't change the original presentation.)

  • A blank presentation— A blank presentation is, well, blank—black text on a white background with no content suggestions. Create a blank presentation only when you are very experienced with PowerPoint and want to create a custom design.
