Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Q: I'm a total beginner in PowerPoint, is this course right for me?
This course will teach you all the necessary basics and advanced tools, but it's not a PowerPoint 101 for beginners. I mention basic tools and techniques, but I assume that you are computer savvy and know how to find your way around PowerPoint already. BUT! If you aren't then I have prepared a completely FREE PowerPoint basics course, which will equip you with the knowledge necessary to take this one. It's available on my profile under free courses. It's called "PowerPoint for Beginners - Program & Animation Basics FREE"
Q: I'm enrolled in your PowerPoint Masterclass - Presentation Design & Animation course. Should I get this one or is the other one enough? Which one is better?
Good Question! Both courses are top PowerPoint courses that teach you the knowledge and tools to create outstanding presentations, animations, and templates. They are just two different versions that use different slides and unique content respectively. The benefit of that is you can follow a different design path on each course. Students who finished the first master course were asking me for more, and I'm happy to provide more if there is demand for it. If you already feel super-comfortable with PowerPoint, one course is enough. But if you seek even more design ideas and slides, and if you like my content and the way I teach, you won't go wrong by taking both courses. Each of those two courses has several unique sections that allow them to expand your knowledge on their own way.
Q: I've been using PowerPoint for 15+ years and think I know it already. Will I learn anything new?
I'm an experienced PowerPoint instructor with over 250 YouTube tutorials and more than 10 published PowerPoint courses and series. Over the past few years, I have learned from both beginner and advanced students which areas to address to best influence your workflow in a positive and impactful way. My courses help you to boost your efficiency, using shortcuts and on-trend designs to help you to reach a modern, top-level standard of quality. If you need something that is not already in the course, you can always ask me about topics to add to courses that interest you.
Q: I'm still not sure if I want to invest into this course. I don't know if I want to focus on design or on animation. Is there any fall-back plan?
Of course! First, you should watch the promo videos and watch the free preview lessons. They will give you a good understanding of the course content, pace, and what to expect from taking the course. Apart from that, you have Udemy’s 30-day Money Back Guarantee with no questions asked!

Let me show you an overview about microsoft powerpoint - master powerpoint presentation. I will touch on a few things specific to only this course and why you should stick with it to the end!
This tutorial will teach you about one of the most essential shortcuts you come across in PowerPoint. The mighty ALT (option), CTRL (cmd) and SHIFT keys. Behold!
Let me explain you the Format Shape Tab. In the FORMAT tab you can find all tools that affect the selected object. All of the features can be also found on the top PowerPoint ribbon, but for any advanced usage we ought to use the Format Shape tab since it has all the tools listed in one place.
With this lecture I want to show you my most used and favorite powerpoint tool - namely the Format Painter and Animation Painter in powerpoint. These fellas allow you to copy any given design and replicate it onto another object. You can for example create a yellow transparent circle, and then copy that "style" onto another shape - awesome!
With this lecture, I would like to explain the differences and difficulties which we face when working with different PowerPoint versions. For 95% of the course you can use basically use any version and I make sure that most of the tutorials are understandable, for the rest you can just watch the lectures, learn new features and use them once you update your software in the future.
In this lecture I will explain you the usability of the Quick Access Toolbar. I will show you the power and quickness it can bring to your PowerPoint usage. For now the MAC version doesn't allow for the "ALT" shortcut to bring those fetures at the tip of your fingers but its still better to use them, even by clicking manually then always searching for the feature you want. I recommend using the QAT and adjust it to hold your favourite shortcuts.
Try to minimize the amount of text on a presentation - always.
PowerPoint 2013 & PowerPoint 2016 has great options to use animations, graphics and other visual oriented items inside a powerpoint presentation so you don't always have to add much text. Additionally please take a brief journey through design trends with me for 2015,2016,2017 and so on :)
In this lesson I am going to explain how to smart use the presenter view to read text directly from Your screen, when the viewer sees only the slide on the presentation screen. Other usefull tips as making your presentation more engaging and interactive with a laser pointer or zooming-in and out of it are also explained. Valuable PowerPoint 2013 lessons!
With this lecture I would like to explain to you a couple of basic things about vector files. Depending on what PowerPoint version you use you can use vector files.
PowerPoint 2010,2013 and 2016 can use *.EMF vector files
PowerPoint 2019 (and Office 365 subscription) can use *.EMF and *.SVG vector files
PowerPoint 2011,2016 have big troubles importing vector files, only *.EMF files are possible to use
PowerPoint 2019 (and Office 365 subscription) can use *.SVG vector files
Here I am showcasing the differences and basic info about icons I've provided for this course.
Let me tell you about the basics on how we will approach the creation - process of this section and get you a bit fired up about for the upcomming lessons! :) Before we get to the point that we are PowerPoint ninjas and start to rock all presentations out of the socks we need to get the right mindset!
In this lecture we will create the first slide of our How To Prepare awesome PowerPoint 2013 presentations course by following me as I create it along with You! The first slide will be the TITLE of the presentation we want to quickly create and animate afterwards. A title of a powerpoint presentation can make or break it, like any introducitonary sequence would, no matter what type of content you are throwing at Your audience.
This is a bonus lecture which will showcase how to get consistent and perfect alignment every time you work in PowerPoint!
In this lesson of our PowerPoint 2013 course we will address the "About Us" page slide. We will use an image to prepare a good looking animated slide and start to build our presentation.
Since the first few slides are most intensive and require the most work on our side I divided it into 2 lessons to let you take a break while learning! We want to utilize all the best and most usefull powerpoint features in this slide so we are not holding back on animations!
In this lesson we are creating a 4 steps process flow slide usable in any type of presentation, wether it's about gaming, a business presentation, a corporate style presentation or any other type of data that may be shown in a step-by-step process. This can be one of the most usefull slides in a powerpoint presentation because you can deliver any message in a ordered and fashionable manner.
A few PowerPoint 2010/2013 tricks allow us to create amazing timeline slides, which can present any data that is changing over time, days, months, years in an organized manner. This trend goes on in 2015 and it will most probably continue to be considered a masterpiece of usefullness in presentations. We all have to show and present timelined scnenarios wether it's our career development on a resumee or simply the path of development of a company.
Our Vector placing skills will finally come to use! With this lesson I want to teach you how to use vector World Map images inside of PowerPoint to present global statistics or data in a very clear & transparent way. Normally people do not use vectors on powerpoint presentations which is the one most important factor why YOU should! Be creative, innovative and original.
After the design I believe we deserve a break! Let me show you some techniques how to prepare a proper "Pause break" slide to be consistend with our color scheme and usefull for the entire presentation. Who doesn't need a break from presenting? You can design a simple and soothing powerpoint slide and use it as a "take 5" placeholder.
PowerPoint is all about visualizing data. Graphs can be one of the most effective ways of presenting complex and important values in a clear and informative way. In this lesson we will address how to utilize the basic graph options build into the program to prepare good looking and easy readable informations.
As one student already said some of the most important and interesting informations are to find in this particular lecture about powerpoint graphs.
It is fair, polite, nice and overall a good practice to list all the resources, tools and informations you have gathered and properly credit the authors for their contribution and making the work you do easier. Powerpoint 2013 slide including different sources we used to gather information for this presentation.
With this lecture I'd like to introduce you to the Template creation in PowerPoint topic and briefly explain what will be covered. We will talk about:
THMX Theme Files in PowerPoint
XML Color schemes
...and a couple or additional tips & tricks regarding those topics.
The next topic in line is PowerPoint layouts. Layouts are essential and very important when it comes to template creation in PowerPoint. If you want to save space and make blank presentation slides layouts are very useful in doing so. Here I will explain to you the technical details of a Layout, and later on you will learn how to create them.
With this lecture I'd like to sum everything we were talking about up and once again remind you of all the differences and difficulties that you may face. I will briefly talk about master slides in powerpoint, layouts in powerpoint, powerpoint color schemes and powerpoint themes (THMX files).
This is the first slide you learn to design in 2016, where I show you how to work with images in Powerpoint, how to chop them and fill out shapes with them so they start to create an interesting composition on it's own. Learn powerpoint quick & efficient thanks to new on-trend designs.
With this slide I want to expand your picture editing knowledge by teaching you how to subtract in powerpoint, how to cut out equal pieces out of pictures, this all applies to powerpoint 2016, powerpoint 2013, powerpoint 2011, and powerpoint 2010!
With this powerpoint slide design I want to teach you what makes a good presentation. You can switch between two colors much smoother if you make one slide to feature / fill in the color that will come next. The viewer will see what approaches him and will be more prepared to recieve the content.
In this slide I want to show you two powerpoint design & presentation techniques which include bulletpoints! You can customize the look and output of bulletpoints themselves, and add animations which will greatly improve the recieved message from people viewing the actual presentation. You can dim out points that were already explained!
In this tutorial we will search together for a nice image and populate our slide with content until we have everything we need to catch our viewers attention. We will both present a lot of text and well prepared design. The viewer will not notice how much text there is if we draw his attention to nice things...like an image :)
Design is all about capturing the viewers attention while still conveying all the information you want to get through in it. With this slide I want to show you a simple yet effective slide design which can be used to prepare a clean and powerful powerpoint presentation. If you are looking for good tips on how to make a nice powerpoint template and start off your presentation then I am inviting you to this tutorial! Check out how I created this slide.
This tutorial will teach you how to create custom icons in powerpoint and make an infographic out of them. I will teach you how you can prepare a slide to present infographical elements within powerpoint using only our native tools. You can also download icons from over the web but it can be just as well done by hand. Learn this nice slide design and up your game in powerpoint :)
This tutorial will show you how images can be put into any shape. I will teach you how to properly prepare, crop and manage images to be able to create any slide you want. Sometimes we have unconventional ideas for our slide layout and powerpoint may seem as it has limitations in that regard. Some limitations can be however overcome and we can design a good powerpoint slide template for our presentations with master slides and adding placeholders.
In this tutorial I want to show you a way of creating slides with an image border. We will use an image as the background, the crop it around and overlay with a box so it looks as the image would be the border of the slides. The canvas becomes smaller thus more focused!
With this tutorial I want to show you how you can experiment with images and custom borders to make it appear as if this powerpoint template would alllow you to put an image behind borders on one side, and before them on the other side. This is a very distinguished effect which will help you make amazing powerpoint templates and presentations!
In this tutorial I would like for once to work with charts and show you an easy design which you can execute for your pie charts and overall chart slides. Charts can be very effective if we tune them a little bit from the stadard powerpoint design into more interesting charts. Hope you will like this tutorial!
This was a student question and request on how to present / design / work with an organigramme within PowerPoint. In that tutorial I tried to show an interesting approach about morphing transitions which we could use to explain certain parts of our organigramme!
With this tutorial I would like to teach you a complete workflow of preparing, analyzing, designing and finally animating a flow chart in powerpoint! Powerpoint gives us a lot of tools to create shape based objects and text boxes, so it's a perfect design space to utilize our workflows, alghoritms, diagrams and flow charts.
With this lecture I would like to show you an additional, bonus slide design to perform. It will actually be leaning towards an ad banner or poster design which could be used to advertise something, but this can be just as well a nice PowerPoint slide as any other graphic art. Enjoy this little tutorial, a couple of useful tricks shown here and there to remember!
So here we are, having an image background and wanting to do something flashy with it, perhaps reveal certain parts of it, add articstic effects or just adding a bit of flavour with color changes. All that is possible if we duplicate the image in powerpoint, crop it to the right amount and then work with shapes or crops within those small areas. The duplicated item can be adjusted while the background remains the same. Easy peasy!
With this slide design I would like to discuss with you our possibilities of making frames for pictures. Pictures in PowerPoint can look more unique if we prepare custom shapes and form a frame with them. Let me show you my simple approach of such slide design!
In this tutorial I would like to go with you about making a modern infographic element - a triangle chart. We will design the entire infographic element together in PowerPoint and add interesting shadows, folds and ribbnos to it. The entire design will be consistent and allow us to select any color scheme to work with. We will be able to display 3 or more relevant informations on one piece.
This is a very popular technique of making brush, chaotic anc custom shape styles as image placeholders. We can either create a template with it or just a simple overlay / placeholder for your images. There are a couple of methods how we could do this and in this tutorial I wish to show you the font method which is the most straight forward in my opinion and easiest to master. Take a look and enjoy :)
This tutorial tries to be a direct answer to my viewers about a school presentation type of slide. Plenty of design and powerpoint usage is geared towards corporate, professional and business use, but what about those more playful, happy and friendly animated slides? It seem that there is a demand for this type of tutorials and I will try to elaborate a little on this topic :)
With this quick update, I would like to show you a great feature that Microsoft introduced. By matching the exact name and adding two exclamation marks "!!" before a shape name in the Selection Pane in PowerPoint we are able to almost seamlessly blend and morph between those two objects. If PowerPoint is unable to find relevant points to morph an object it will cross-fade that object which also looks really good and the effect is close to a seamless morph.
One of the hardest things to present are graps and tables. Large tables. With a lot of data. I will show you tricks how to make it easier to read and understand by the viewer. You can again lower the amount of information presented and "soften" people down in advance.
