PowerPoint vs. Google Slides

Both Microsoft and Google offer presentation platforms with their Suites. Microsoft’s platform, PowerPoint, has more creative designs, but it does cost you something. However, Google Slides is free, although with less animation ability. In this tutorial, we compare PowerPoint and Google Slides.

First, we’ll cover how to use PowerPoint and Slides. Then we’ll review their main differences.

PowerPoint

First, when you open your PowerPoint document, pick a theme. Here the “Gallery” theme is chosen. However, if you want additional themes, click the bottom right “more themes” button.

Templates for PowerPoint

PowerPoint offers a small number of simple themes, but you can always use our database of professional free templates for Powerpoint:

Once you have your template chosen, just click on the boxes and fill them in as prompted.

Create new Presentation

Once you have your title and subtitle filled in, you can add notes to your presentation—for your eyes only. Do this by clicking the “notes” button on the bottom bar.

Once you have a title page, you will want to add text slides. Click on the “Insert” tab, as shown below. Then hit “New Slide.” From there, you can choose the style of slide you want.

Add New Slide in PowerPoint Presentation

Now that you have a secondary slide fill in the title space and start filling in your main text.

Once you have filled those out, play around with the animations under the “Animations” tab. Here you can choose to have your titles or bullet points fly-in, fade-in, or simply appear.

Now that you have your presentation ready, how about you check out transitions? Under the “Transitions” tab you can create different effects when giving your presentation. Having classy slides that fade into each other could be a nice touch. Be sure to click on whichever slide you want to have the entering transition.

Now that you’re finished click on the “Slide Show” tab and start “From Beginning.” Your slideshow has just begun!

There is a lot more to PowerPoint that you can find by experimenting and trying new things out.

Google Slides

The first thing you see when opening Google Slides is very similar to PowerPoint.

However, the themes are on the right-hand side of the document. In this example, the “Focus” template was chosen. At the bottom of the page, you can also add in your speaker notes. You can also use free templates HiSlide.io for Google Slides.

Once you have filled in the information, insert your additional slides under the “Insert” tab at the bottom.

After you have finished your presentation, the “Present” button is at the upper right. The “Share” button is also next to it so that you can collaborate.

Again, there is so much more to explore in Google Slides.

Online vs. Desktop Access

PowerPoint is designed for PC usage. It has numerous templates, and themes, but they are all downloaded. You can create a creative or professional presentation. However, PowerPoint’s online version is oversimplified. It does not have the same variety or customizability.
Google Slides is designed for online use. Its collection of simple templates and many fonts are all stored in the cloud. However, the offline version of Slides is very similar to the online version of PowerPoint. Its capacities are cut in half.

Features

The features that each platform offers are heavily dependent upon whether they are online or offline.
PowerPoint – offline – provides a multitude of animated effects, varying from in-slide motion to transition animations. All these effects are well-designed.
Google Slides – online – presents simple templates and not many animations. However, since Google Slides is online, it also is a fantastic team-based platform. If you share your Google Slide, you can collaborate online with your colleagues and friends.
Comparing PowerPoint and Google Slides reveals both of their strengths and weaknesses. But whether you should get one of the other depends on your needs. If you want to create a solo professional, creative presentation, PowerPoint is the way to go. However, if you want a free platform that allows team-collaboration, Google Slides is your best option. Both platforms are geared toward different audiences.

 

 

 

How to Change the Color of Bullet Points in Google Slides?

Some people may want to change bullet point color in their Google Docs just to make their points stand out, especially from other bullet points in the document. You can use the same approach to changing Google Slides bullet points as well as their standard Docs. These instructions will help you better understand how to make bullet points change color in Google Slides and the rest of the Google Suite.

Creating a Bullet List

The first step is showing how to create a bullet list. You can start in 2 ways: you can have text written already before bulleting, or you can start with the bullet point.

Creating a Bullet List

Creating a Bullet List

  1. If you are going to start with the bullet point, you will need to go into the “Format” menu, then select the “Bullets & numbering” option. Within that menu, you can choose between a “Numbered List” or a “Bulleted List.” Then you can select the bullet point that you want.

  2. If you already have words written out, you can go through the same process as mentioned above; only you will need to highlight the area to which you want to add bullets.
  3. You can follow these same steps if you want to add additional levels to your presentation.

How to Customize Your Bullet Points

Now that you know how to add bullet points to your Google Slide or Google Doc, you can customize the bullets to achieve your desired look. You can choose from the different styles of bullets, or you can even select what color you want your bullets to be. If you wish to add the same color to the bullets or change colors for each bullet, you do follow similar steps.

  3. If you do not see a color that you like, you can create your color as well by going to the “Custom” option. Google slides bullet points
  4. You can perform this step as many times as you need to, depending on what style you are trying to achieve with your document.

  6. You aren’t limited to just different styles of bullets or colors. You can also choose between different symbols and even emojis if you decide for your bullets.
  7. You can just repeat this process as needed to achieve your desired look.

Conclusion

Thanks to all of these options, you can create a custom document or slide that can genuinely help make your project stand out. Sometimes you merely want to make a statement with your project to get your point across or just to make it visually appealing. Customizing your bullets can be a great way to do that.

 

How to Rename a Slide in Google Slides?

Google Slides is a free online presentation program that lets you create slideshow presentations that can contain text, images, shapes, sounds, animations, and videos.

You can think of Google Slides as a basic yet online version of Microsoft PowerPoint that offers similar and different features. The primary advantage of Google Slides is that it allows real-time slide sharing and collaboration without the need to send attachments back and forth.

In this article, you will learn the process of how to rename slides in Google Slides.

For each time you create a new presentation in Google Slides, it is by default titled “Untitled presentation.” You will find the name on the top left corner of the new slide screen. You rename the template by clicking the name of it in the upper-left corner and typing an appropriate name or your desired title.

And, whenever you work online, the changes are saved nearly instantaneously, which is why there is no ‘Save’ button in Google Slides.

There are different ways to rename a presentation based on whether the presentation is in your Drive list or opened in slides. Nevertheless, you should not forget to rename it.

Additionally, when you link to slides in the presentation, you’ll be presented with the names of the slides. Since the slides already have a name, having the ability to rename the slides comes in handy when you are working on several slides.

So, how can you rename each slide on Google Slides? In most cases, slides are named automatically, which tend to be based on the content of the title text. However, if you don’t have this title element, or you utilize the title element for something else, the names of your slides can be different from how you want them to be—another reason why renaming slides can be useful.

Renaming a Slide in Google Slides

When naming files, ideally, you should do so in a manner in which you and your collaborators know the contents or give a brief description of the slides. Try to be explanatory and avoid numbering files that have edits from previous versions. The names of slides in Google slides can be up to 255 characters long.

Essential Steps to Rename a Google Slide When Open in Slides

  1. Be sure to be in the Google Slide window.
  2. Click on ‘Untitled presentation’ or other relevant wording in the top left corner.

How to Add Google Slides Presentations to WordPress?

Do you want to embed Google slides on a website? Be it for direct linking, social media, or even on a WordPress website, a slide show is quite handy and offers an excellent way to share information.

Read on as we will show you the two different methods on how you can add Google Slides presentations to WordPress easily.

Method 1: How to Add Google Slides in WordPress Using the oEmbed Plugin

This method is an easy way to go and works favorably for beginners. Here you’ll just need the URL of the presentation that you’ve published on Google Slides.

But, first, make sure you’ve installed and activated the WordPress oEmbed plugin in your site. The plugin works pretty straightforwardly, and there are no settings that you need to configure.

WordPress oEmbed plugin

Before you can embed your slide presentation, you’ll need the shareable URL of your Google Slides presentation.

To do that, you can create or upload the presentation in Google Slides that you want to embed and then click on ‘File’ and choose ‘Publish to the web’ in the dropdown.

You should see a pop up that will let you configure slideshow settings such as the delay between slides and autoplay. Click the ‘Publish’ button to make your Slide presentation public, as shown in the image.

After clicking on ‘Publish,’ click ‘OK’ to confirm and continue the process. Now you ought to see a URL that you can use to embed your Google Slides presentation on your WordPress website.

Publish Google Slides in website

Copy the code and head over to your WordPress Admin dashboard and then to the page or post where you seek to embed your Google Slides presentation. Paste the code to the’ Text’ tab of the WordPress Editor.

It’s important to note that the embed URL should be on its own line. Or else, the plugin may not see the embed link as a valid conversion. Once you click on the Publish button, you should be able to see your Google Slide embedded in your WordPress site.

Method 2: How to Add Google Slides Embed Code in WordPress


Another way to embed google slides in WordPress is to code it manually. That said, with this method, you don’t need to install any plugin, and it is a practical option if you don’t frequently embed Google Slides on your WordPress site.

To get started, you need to open the presentation you want to embed. Then click on ‘File’ and choose ‘Publish to the web’ in the dropdown.

After clicking on ‘Publish,’ click ‘OK’ to confirm and continue the process. Then, click on the ‘Embed’ tab and then copy the code.

Head over to your WordPress Admin dashboard and then to the page or post where you want to add or embed your Google Slides presentation. Paste the embed code to the ‘Text Editor’ tab in the WordPress editor.

Once you click ‘Publish’ or ‘Update,’ you should see your embedded Google slide presentation. Note that you shouldn’t switch to the ‘Visual’ editor after pasting the embed code. Doing so will ruin the embed code, and you’ll then see the codes as plain texts instead of your slide presentation.

Conclusion

So, those are the steps to embed Google Slides presentations to WordPress. We hope this article has shed some light on just how the process works. Use any of the methods to embed presentations on your WordPress website to impress your visitors.

Best Slide Transitions and Animations for Presentations

One of the best ways to capture the audience’s attention is by using transitions and animations in your presentations. For this reason, it’s common for presentation software to include a wide array of these effects. However, this can make it harder for you to decide which ones to incorporate into your show. Let’s look at some of the best ways to choose which effects you incorporate into the show and how you can apply them to the presentation.

What’s the Difference Between Animations and Transitions?


Let’s start by looking at some of the differences between the two most commonly used types of effects, animations, and transitions. While many people assume that animations and transitions are the same things, this isn’t the case. Transitions are used when you are moving from one slide to the other. For this reason, they will be applied to the whole slide. Because of the entire slide is used, you will only be able to use one transition effect per slide.
In comparison, animations can be applied to every element of the slide. For example, you might want to have an animation for the text and a different animation for a picture. Because of this, you will be able to use multiple different types of animation for each of the elements on the slide. The way that you apply these effects will often depend on the kind of software that you are using to create the presentation. For example, different platforms might offer different types of effects. To help you with this, let’s look at some of the most common types of presentation platforms and how you apply effects on them.

Applying Transitions

Let’s start by looking at how you can add a slide transition in the show. These will make it easier to distinguish between different slides. It can also be a great way of keeping your audience engaged.

Applying Transitions in PowerPoint

Let’s start by looking at how you can find and implement the best PowerPoint transitions. First, you will need to move to the Transitions tab. This tab will give a long list of potential options. You will then be able to find the one that will work best with your presentation.

The transitions are placed into three separate categories to make this choice easier. These are subtle, exciting, and dynamic. Also, when you click on an effect, you will see a preview of how it will look when applied to the show. This preview can give you an idea of whether it will work with your presentation.

Applying Transitions in Keynote

Another popular type of slideshow creation technology is Keynote. Using Keynote can be a little trickier for you to find and apply transitions. First, you will need to go to the navigation panel. Then, you will need to click on the Animatebutton in the top-right hand corner of the screen.

Applying Transitions in Keynote MAC

This choice will bring up a list of transition options from which you can choose. Once done, you will need to decide how for how long you want the effect to last. You will also need to determine when you want the transition effect to start. After this, select the build order button.

Adding Transitions in Google Slides

To add transitions to Google Slides, you will need to enter the Transitions tab at the top of the screen. This tab will cause the Transitions pane to appear. In this section, you will have several options from which you can choose. Having choices will ensure that you can find and apply the right one for your presentation.

Adding Animations

Another powerful effect tool that you can use is animations. These can give you more control over the presentation, letting you choose when each element is introduced. It will also allow you to bring the audience’s attention to critical areas. Let’s look at some of the ways you can apply these. 

Adding PowerPoint Animations

To add an animation to a PowerPoint presentation, you will need to use the Animations tab.

There, you will see the various effects offered by the platform. These are often categorized to make it easier for you to select the best one. For more complicated options, you might want to use the More Effects buttons at the bottom of the window.

This choice will bring up a list of options. There are divided into three sub-categories: build-in, build-out, and action. Then you can go through the steps to create the one that works best for you.

Adding Animations in Google Slides

In Google Slides, you will need to right-click on the object that you want to animate. Then, select the Animate option.

This selection will present a list of animation options for you to consider. Select the right element by clicking on it. You will then be able to customize it further, deciding at what time it plays and how long it will run. When doing this, you should know that Google Slides might limit the number of animations you can include to 13.

Benefits of Animations and Transitions

As we’ve seen, there are multiple ways to access these effects when you are creating a presentation. There are several reasons why you might want to consider using them during your slide show. First, it helps improve your presentation’s appearance.

For this reason, your audience will often appreciate a few effects to break up the show. Besides, you will be able to use effects to help emphasize the critical points of the presentation. For example, it will allow you to control the pace of the show, controlling when each new point is introduced. Controlling the speed of the show will let you determine how much discussion each element receives before you move on. Finally, these will allow you to grab your audience’s attention, ensuring they remain engaged with the presentation.

Best Practices When Using Effects

While the best animations and PowerPoint transitions can be a great tool, you will need to learn how to use them correctly. First, you should make sure not to overuse them because this can distract from the message. For example, it might be wise to stick to one or two transition effects throughout the presentation to make sure that it doesn’t feel too disjointed. You should also make sure to consider your audience. The type of audience will often influence the kind of effects that you will need to use. As an example, if you are giving a business presentation, you might want to keep the effects to a minimum, to make sure that you don’t distract them. However, if you were presenting to a group of children, you might want more effects to keep them engaged with the show.

In addition to choosing the right effects, you will need to think about the duration that you will be using. For example, you don’t want them to run for too long, to risk the audience getting bored. On the other hand, if they move too quickly, you might induce feelings of motion sickness. To solve this problem, you should try using each transition at multiple speeds. This trial and error will allow you to pick the one that works best in your presentation.

After going through the process, you should also make sure to preview each of these effects. Previewing is a great way to make sure that it is having the desired impact on the audience. It will also allow you to recognize when something is too distracting or doesn’t look visually appealing. You will then be able to tweak that element. By doing this, when you give the presentation, everything will look the way you want it to look. If, after trying multiple settings, you still can’t get an effect to work, you might want to consider removing it from the presentation entirely.

Best Transitions and Animations in a Business Presentation

As we’ve seen, there are multiple factors to consider when choosing which animation or transition you are going to use. Most importantly, you don’t want to allow them to overshadow the show. However, some types of effects will work well in most presentations. Let’s look at some of them.

Let’s start by looking at some of the most popular PowerPoint transition options. First, you might want to use a fade. Depending on your needs, you can either have it slowly fade into the next slide or fade to black. Another popular option is the ability to push. Pushing causes the new slide to move the old one off. There are multiple ways of doing this, such as shifting from the bottom of the side. Another PowerPoint transition option is to cut. Cutting causes the old slide to disappear and the new one to materialize instantly. Finally, you can either cover or uncover. This option means that the new slide will be covering the old one, or be lifted from the top of the old one. With each of these choices, there is a range of customization options, so you can find the one that works best for you.

When creating a PowerPoint presentation, you might also want to include some of the most popular animations. In this area, you will have four options from which to choose. First, you might want to add an entrance effect. This effect will allow you to determine when the element arrives, which is excellent for controlling the pace. You might also want to consider an emphasis animation. These are designed to bring attention to the parts that are already visible on the slide.

In some cases, these types of effects might not work with all the elements. If this is the case, merely choose a different kind of emphasis animation. The third type of animation in PowerPoint is exit effects. This effect will cause an element to leave the presentation. Finally, you may want to add motion to the display. Though this category can be a little more complicated, learning to use this technology effectively will allow you to have a significant impact on your audience.

Adding Sound Effects to the Presentation

In some cases, you might want to add a sound effect to help highlight an important point. However, if you overuse this, you risk irritating the audience. For this reason, you should only use a sound effect when necessary. To create a sound effect, you will first need to click on the element that you want to apply to the sound effect. You will then need to move to the Custom Animation pane. Then, you will need to select the Effect Options to display more information.

Once done, you will be able to choose the Sound option. There you will be presented with multiple options.

In some cases, you might even want to use a custom sound. After choosing the sound, you will need to select when it gets played. For example, do you want to play it after a click, or as soon as the transition begins? After deciding this factor, you will need to think about how long the sound will play. In most cases, this should only be for a few seconds. If it’s too long, you might risk overshadowing the presentation. Finally, you might want to control the volume, to make sure that it’s comfortable for the audience. You will also be able to do this on a Mac, following the same procedures. However, because of the different operating systems, it might look a little different to some of the example images provided.

Conclusion

Animations and transitions can be a great way of capturing your audience’s attention and highlighting important points. Hopefully, you will now have a better understanding of the most popular animations available and how to apply them to your presentation. We also discussed some of the ways to make sure that you use these elements wisely to avoid overwhelming your audience. So, the next time you are creating a presentation, you can use transitions and animations more confidently.
