Chapter 15. Working with Animation > Setting Slide Transitions

Setting Slide Transitions

Setting slide transitions is one of the most common animation effects. You can apply a slide transition to the entire presentation or just to the current slide. PowerPoint offers a variety of transition options, including the capability to fade, dissolve, wipe, or even display items as a newsflash. Within each of these main categories, you can choose a direction. For example, you can wipe up, down, left, or right.

As with so many PowerPoint features, use restraint with slide transitions. For the most professional results, choose one transition to use for every slide in a presentation. Or, if you want to highlight one or two particular slides, you can apply just the right transition to those, but apply no transition to the rest. Too many different transitions can make your presentation confusing and inconsistent, detracting from your message.
