Make PowerPoint Slides Pop with 3D
You probably think of slides as a 2D surface. After all, you project slides on a screen or wall.
But you can make them look 3-dimensional using several techniques:
•Depth and 3D rotation
•The bulletin board or collage look
•3D scenes — creating a surface (like a table) and putting things on it
The result is much more interesting and adds a professional touch as well — as long as you don’t overdo it. In the post, I’ll show you some examples of using shadows to make objects appear to pop off the slide.
Here’s a slide with no shadows. It’s from an updated presentation I give called Slide Design for Non-Designers.
