How to Use Morph in PowerPoint to Design Engaging Presentations

If you have PowerPoint 2019 or 365, you can use the Morph transition to create more engaging presentations by adding seamless movement to objects. Morph can move the location of an object from one slide to the next during a slide show. Because it’s a transition, not an animation, you’ll need to create two slides to morph an object. You can apply the Morph transition not only to create movement but also to change size or formatting of text, shapes, pictures, SmartArt, WordArt and charts.

How to Change the Thumbnail for a Video in PowerPoint (using the Poster Frame Tool)

If you have inserted a video on a PowerPoint slide, you can display a custom thumbnail (or Poster Frame) for the video during a slide show. The thumbnail will display when you run a PowerPoint slide show and disappears when you start the video. For most videos, the thumbnail that displays is the first frame of the video clip. You can use the Poster Frame command to display a different frame in the video clip or a picture from another source as a thumbnail. A picture thumbnail could be either an image or an icon.

How to Add Audio in PowerPoint Presentations

How to Add Audio in PowerPoint Presentations

You can add audio in PowerPoint from a file on your PC or from a shared drive. Audio is played during a slide show and you can insert music, sound clips, or voice recordings. Since audio files are copied into PowerPoint presentations by default, they can increase file size and may need to be compressed. To play audio, your computer must be equipped with a sound card and speakers.
