PowerPoint for INFOGRAPHICS?-Creating meaningful content for your audience.
Although we have all heard about Death by PowerPoint there are new ways to use
PowerPoint to create original documents or infographics to share in media channels such as Pinterest or Flicker or Facebook.
Did you know you can create any size page in PowerPoint? The standard ‘landscape format’ can induce a yawn at first sight!
For a sampler, I created a pin for a program called Bug Me Please! children’s nature adventure using PowerPoint.
Here’s how to get started.
Open a new file in PP.
Under the view tab, click on ‘Slide Master’, choose page Setup -there you can determine the correct ratio and size of you page…square, oblong, or panorama will liven-up your design.
This sample document is 22” x 7.5”
Delete any copies of slides in your file.
Name your document, and continue to save as you work.
Images and text boxes can have clear backgrounds that integrates imagery with ground color
Import images in JPEG, TIFF, or PNG format.
All photo filters and effects in native PowerPoint can be applied.
Creative graphs can be made with clear backgrounds.
Images can be put in layer order to create depth on the surface.
Save completed slide as a single image in JPEG or PNG format.
Samples of different types of original graphics are pinned to my Pinterest account: 5oci4lm3di4101, board name: zancan (http://pinterest.com/5oci4lm3di4101/zancan/)
Next blog I will show you how to engage your audience and use your content in a single information pin.
