3d techniques for PowerPoint

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:

•Shadows
•Bevels
•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.
