PowerPoint Slide Makeover #53: Using a full screen photo to enhance a story

Just a quick note to let you know that a new Slide Makeover Video Podcast based on the ideas in "The Visual Slide Revolution" is available for your viewing through the iTunes Store, online or through my YouTube channel. Stories and analogies are important to increasing the impact of your message. Don't just type out the key parts of the story on a slide as bullet points. Use the ideas in this makeover to show a full screen photo that increases the impact of your story or analogy.

This slide is similar to those submitted by the participants in my workshops - someone just like you who is looking for a way to make their presentations more effective. If you want to submit some of your slides to be considered for a future slide makeover, e-mail them to me at Dave@ThinkOutsideTheSlide.com.

If you have already subscribed through iTunes or another podcatcher, the new podcast should be automatically downloaded when you next run the program.

To subscribe via the iTunes Store, click here.
To view online or get the RSS file for other podcatchers, click here.
You can also watch all the podcasts on my YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/ThinkOutsideTheSlide

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the post and the video. Pictures are a simple and effective way for presenters to get a message to resonate with their audiences. It's a shame that more people don't use them.

And thanks for encouraging people to have the pictures bleed off the edge of the slide. Many people who take the plunge and put some pictures in their presentations often "pull their punches" by placing the picture in a corner and filling the rest of the page with text.

I am going to post your video on my blog. Hope it sends you some traffic.
