Templates Using PowerPoint

Creating a template in PowerPoint

Creating a template in PowerPoint is very simple. Just start by opening up PowerPoint. Now, select the New Slide button in the Insert section at the bottom of the screen. You’ll notice that there is a bunch of different layouts available. Click on the Layout tab and choose a design that you like.

Now that you have a basic layout selected, you’ll want to add some elements to the slide. The easiest way is to drag and drop the features you wish to into the fall. Add text boxes, images, and other objects to make the fall look professional.

To do this, click on the Text Box icon on the ribbon. This will display all the elements that you can add.

Once you’re finished adding the elements, you can close the box. Now, you can start creating a template.

To create a template, save the File to your computer. Next, you can open it up in PowerPoint.

Adding a template to your presentations

Creating a template in PowerPoint is fairly simple. You can do so by adding a new template to your presentation or using one of the pre-made templates that come with the software.

Here’s how to add a template to your presentation:

1. In PowerPoint, click on File -> New.

2. Select “Slide” from the file type drop-down.

3. Pick the template that you want to use from the list.

4. You can then edit the template if you want.

5. Click “OK”.

6. Drag your slide into your presentation.

7. To remove the template, drag the slide out of your presentation.

8. You can add more slides to the same template. Just drag the slide out of your presentation and re-add it.

Make custom templates using PowerPoint.

PowerPoint has always been a great tool for creating presentations. But what if you want to create a template that includes custom shapes?

PowerPoint’s built-in shapes are great for creating a standard layout, but what if you want to create a template that contains your logo, social media links, and other elements?

This is where the Custom Shape feature in PowerPoint comes in. With this feature, you can create your unique shapes and then use them as part of a template. Creating a PowerPoint template can be easy, and you can do it without any coding experience.

Using the Insert Picture command

The first step in creating a template is to insert a picture into the PowerPoint document. There are a few ways to do this. The easiest is to use the Insert Picture command. You can drag the image onto the slide or right-click on the image and click Insert Picture.

Then select the area where you want to place the image. In my example, I have a white rectangle with a black background. I click on the rectangle to add a picture and press Insert Picture. I am presented with the option to choose a picture or insert an existing file. I select the File and click Open. The image will appear on the slide.

If you want to resize the image, drag the corners until you reach the desired size. Then, click on the picture to accept the new size.

If you want to add a gradient effect to the image, you can do that by pressing Ctrl+K and then dragging your mouse along the edges. You can also add text and other elements by clicking on the shape and dragging them into place.

If you’re new to PowerPoint, you might wonder why you would create templates. Well, it’s simple. If you are making a presentation containing many pictures, it is time-consuming to return and find the image.

To create a new template, save your PowerPoint document as a.pptx File. You can do this from File> Save As.

You can also create a template using the PowerPoint’s Save As option. Go to File> Save As and select PowerPoint Template (*.pptx).

Now, you can use the template to create a new presentation.
