PowerPoint Slide Quality Tips

Good slides always have a takeaway,

either in the title or in a text box.

Impact of Graphics on Slide Quality

Quality of slide

This side of the slide is ugly

Relevant graphics

Bad

This is what a bad PowerPoint looks like. There is no visual impact from the placement of text. There are way too many words on one slide. There may be a randomly placed clip-art picture somewhere on the page. The white space is not balanced. The font is too small.
