"PowerPoint Slide Transitions - Important Element to Add Value to Your Presentation"


Slide Transitions are special effects you can add to a slide show to determine how one slides moves to the next. It's the visual movements as one slide changes to another.

The transition effect for a slide refers to how the slide enters, not how it exits. So, when you are creating your presentation slides, do remember to apply the feature otherwise your presentation will be quite boring and not attractive as all the slides movements are same.

PowerPoint has many different slide transition options to choose from to enhance your slide show. Please note that transitions add a nice little flourish to your presentation, but you don't want them to distract unduly from your message.

This tutorial will guide you on how to apply the slide show transitions to your presentation.
