Video & Media
When designing eLessons, you often have pictures to incorporate. And while it would be great to add some visual interest and effects to those images, you might think it’s not possible without a lot of time and a working knowledge of an expensive software like Photoshop.
It’s time to add some visual interest to your images with a tool you probably already have: PowerPoint. You don’t need a graphic design background or fancy software to produce creative and visually intriguing picture effects. In this session, you’ll use PowerPoint to create a fractured picture, isolate parts of a picture, pop out colors, pop out an entire element of the photo, create a photo mosaic effect, and more. You will animate images and export the animation to MP4 videos.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to create professional-looking photo effects
- How to animate pictures
- How to export the animation to MP4 videos
- How to create fractured pictures, a photo mosaic effect, isolated picture elements, and more
Novice to advanced designers with basic PowerPoint knowledge.
