Part II: Creating Slide Show Content > Working with Graphic Objects

Chapter 6. Working with Graphic Objects

In this chapter

  • Find out why it’s easy, fun, and useful to add graphic images to a slide show

  • Learn how to find, insert, and manipulate clip art images

  • Discover how to acquire images from scanners, digital cameras, or the Internet

  • Learn how to combine, modify, and save PowerPoint images

PowerPoint is a visual medium, and therefore, creating slide shows in PowerPoint is akin to an artistic experience. Adding titles, bullets, and other text is a start, but graphic images and drawing objects add the art to your slides. Certainly you can create beautiful slides that impress but don’t communicate. But used properly, graphic elements can get across ideas that words alone might not be able to. Consider, for example, the poor, lonely polar bear in Figure 6.1. Doesn’t that bring the concept of global warming a little closer?
