The countdown timers listed here use multiple animations and you need to run a slide show to use them. Links to download the PowerPoint templates are to the Microsoft site.

You can download the PowerPoint templates with the countdown timers for free and use them as standalone presentations. If you’d like a different look, edit the background of the slide(s) in Slide Master View but you won’t be able to edit the numbers in Normal View since that are actually a set of stacked pictures, each animated to appear at a different time interval.

If you prefer, you can copy the slide(s) with the timers to your own presentation and edit them if necessary.

The following timers all use a blue pictures as backgrounds in Sllide Master View.
