After that, you'll find out how to create dazzling presentations formatted with themes and a variety of slide layouts. You'll embellish your slides with text, objects, SmartArt, multimedia, animation, sound, charts, clip art, and hyperlinks, and you'll discover that global changes are a snap with the Slide Master.

And that's just the start! You'll also learn how to create a PowerPoint photo album with your digital pictures, and you'll work with PowerPoint Web App—an online version of PowerPoint. Finally, you'll add versatility to your PowerPoint skills as you learn to save presentations as PDF files and videos.
