Video & Media
When designing eLessons, job aids, and more, you may have photos or illustrations to incorporate into your designs. And while it would be great to further edit or add some effects to those pictures, you might think it’s not possible without a lot of time and a working knowledge of an expensive photo-editing software.
Fortunately, you don’t necessarily need a graphic design background or fancy software to produce creative and visually intriguing picture effects. You can easily add more visual interest to your pictures with a tool you probably already have: PowerPoint! In this session, you’ll take a hands-on approach to learning how to use PowerPoint to change the shape of your pictures, isolate parts of a picture, pop out colors, pop out an entire element of the photo, and more.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to create professional-looking photo effects
- About the differences between picture tools and drawing tools
- How to combine shapes and pictures
- How to change the colors of your photos
