design considerations
Design Considerations
  • Image balance
  • Image Size
  • Color
  • Compression.

When designing images consider the following:

  • No one likes to look at a lot of empty space.
  • So try to crop your image the best you can.
  • And watch out for distracting objects in your picture.
  • Someone may think the wrong object in your picture is the main attraction!


Be careful of how bright or dark your picture is.

If the picture is too bright or too dark,

then the harder it is too see.


"washed out"

too crisp

Also, watch out for your contrast.

Try not to let your image look

  • Make sure images support your talk

identified the plant life

Don\'t make your graphics too BIG!

Image Size

When you are making graphics, you have to be careful about your image size.

The larger the picture, then the more

time it takes to load.

  • Not all images show the same amount of colors
  • 8 bit graphics show 256 colors
  • 16 bit graphics show 32000 colors
    • 16 bit images look better but produce larger file sizes

Riding is Fun!


Resizing your image in PowerPoint

    • select your image
    • locate the Picture Toolbar
    • select the Format Picture Option

Try not enlarge your images in PowerPoint.

By stretching them you loose your clarity.
