Animated Gifs for Your Social Media from PowerPoint

PowerPoint is the business standard to make an official presentation. Many presentations use default templates and fade transition between slides – which I would evaluate as using the most minimal effort to get the job done. The newer software versions now have impressive tools to add 3D model graphics and morphing transitions to perk your standard presentation. Your audience will appreciate your effort to make a report more exciting and engaging.

The 3D models provide a new dimension to your presentation to better maintain attention and demonstrate your proficiency and skill. There is a large stock selection of 3D models already loaded into your software. Beyond the stock library, many sites provide additional free 3D models by aspiring artists that only require a quick Google search.

I am sharing the basics to inspire your interest in what you can create with the relatively new presentation features. While you watch the video, consider transitioning graphics with additional text that appropriately enters your slide to emphasize your message.

When learning a new option in PowerPoint, be careful not to abuse the feature with overuse, but rather add it as a new small extra element to sustain your audience’s interest.

Saving a PowerPoint file as an animated gif feature does not require 3D objects or the morphing transition. At the end of the video, I showcase basic PowerPoint presentations that are saved as animated gifs. It is helpful to express your message with animated gifs since you can chronologically focus your audience’s attention.

    Nice tip “When learning a new option in PowerPoint, be careful not to abuse the feature with overuse, but rather add it as a new small extra element to sustain your audience’s interest.” So true. Sometimes, I get the happy feet and just want to overload the audience. This is tailor made for me.
