1. Introduction: Hi, My name is Megan Hendrix, and I have a presentation designer at Crazy. For the past couple of years, I've created presentations for speakers on stage is such as Ted and Self Myself West, as well as for larger companies and organizations such as Vera Phone, IBM, the Clinton Foundation and the U. N. Just to name a few, President is a cloud based presentation software that, unlike slides, let you show your ideas in context. For example, you can zoom in on details and then pull back to reveal the bigger picture. Today we have over 60 million users with a presentation database of over 200 million presentations in this class, I'm going to take you through the process of creating what we like to call a present day, which is just taking your resume and turning it into a president at crazy. This is actually the first step in your application process because it lets you dive into the editor and start playing around with the tool in a fun and meaningful way. This project will help you learn the basics of the editor as well, a star experimenting with all the various features we will cover what makes a good president some tips for planning and preparation, as well as how to actually use the software along the way. I will also share some of my tips and tricks the picked up over the years for me, presidents of powerful tool for visual storytelling. And I hope the pass on a bit of my love of the software onto you. The final deliverer herbal will be for you to post a final linked to your present may as well as any progress you might have along the way. This is really a chance to highlight your personality, so have fun with it, and I can't wait to see what you come up with. 2. What Makes a Good Prezi: What I love about president is the versatility of the open canvas and how powerful little things you do with it can be to your overall message. So let's jump into what goes on inside my head when I'm creating a presentation. One of the main things I try to incorporate into every president create isn't overview. A great overview helps you visualize all your ideas coherently and allows you to do some awesome reveals during your presentation. Let's jump into the left side of the brain and talk about why the overview is important, or what I like to call the science of good presentations. Something that is true for any presentation you create is the need to focus your audiences attention on the subject you are presenting. Usually, the thing that comes to mind when we think of a typical power point presentation is along the same bullet points. The problem with these long lists of bullet points is that the people are focused on trying to read the wall text and not necessarily on you and the insight you bring. You want your presentation to be a supplemental and not the sole focus of their attention with Pressey. You can still have those bullet points in a way, but you can zoom in and focus on the particular point you are trying to make. Another thing to keep in mind is to try and ditch the bullet points altogether and keep your presentations more visual. The reason being that visual presentations actually make you 43% more persuasive. This is because their brains are programmed to think visually, adding things such as images, charts and graphs and videos help to create visual connections to your content, making the information more memorable and with crazy the open canvas is actually forcing you to think more visually. This is because the open campus allows you to create special relationships between different parts of your presentation. So our brain is trained to think of things and how they're related to each other. To illustrate this idea, try thinking about what you have on your desk. When I think of mine, I know I have a chair in front of it. I have an extra monitor set up with a bigger screen. When I first get into the office, I set my backpack down in front of it and go get a cup of coffee. My monitor is covered with Post it notes with reminders of what I need to do that day. And finally my laptop is connected to my monitor. I'm going to go ahead and assume that no one thought of their desk in a bolted list. You most likely pictured your desk in your head and thought of war. Things were in relation to each other by clustering groups of like, constant and taking advantage of the spatial relationships. You can create context between the different parts of your presentation, which helps make you more memorable. You can take that idea a step further than just grouping content. There are different levels to these overviews, depending on your skill level, the amount of time you want to put into it, or even the point you are trying to make. So let's get to the creative and artistic side up, creating a good presentation. I already talked about how grouping content can be a useful technique, but you can help give more contexts by adding structure. With the slide based presentation, you are tied to one linear progression. But not every story is best told in this format. Every presentation has a different message, and every story is unique. But structuring your content just slightly different, you can convey a totally different meaning at just a glance. For example, placing your content in an upward curve suggest something positive. In contrast, a downward curve suggest something negative. We can place them in a way to show two sides coming together, or we can simply place them in a circle to show a cycle or a process. That is a very simple way to add more meaning to your presentation. But we can take this even further by adding visuals to the overview to bring in story and metaphor. Let's look at some different metaphors that we can add to our upward curve, adding a space metaphor in symbolize something launching or taking off. Adding a cedar tree metaphor suggests the idea of growth are starting from something small and turning it into something greater. Finally, a mountain metaphor can create the association of a journey or overcoming a challenge. The use of metaphor can add a storytelling aspect to your presentation, but the addition of meaningful movement can add cinematic value. So let's look again at that mountain metaphor starting at the overview. We can then zoom into the details. Let's imagine that this is the first quarter of the year now. We could go directly to next quarter, but maybe we want a fast forward to Quarter three, where there is a challenge we're going to face, creating a bit of drama and suspense. From there we can back up to quarter to where we might have learned a new tool or skill that is going to help us bridge that gap in quarter three, allowing us to move forward to quarter for and complete our journey. We can then end by zooming back out to the overview to give the audience a subtle reminder of what we covered. While the open canvas can be fun and exciting, we want to make sure you are using it in a smart way from day one. Before we dive in to the editor and have you start building your Prizzi's, there are a couple big no nos. I want to go over. The first is something called the close up. This is usually the result of having contact. You don't know where to put and zooming way too closely in on the image as a solution. The problem is one. There is no meaning in the zoom, so it is adding no value to your presentation and too often tends. The images are not high enough quality and become pixelated, resulting in a visual that looks unpolished and distracting. Try to remember to make your zooms and imagery meaningful. If you do have a reason to zoom in, make sure is high enough. Resolution to accommodate the zoom without losing quality. The next know now is called the Scatter. This is what happens when content is thrown all over the canvas without thought. Put into the placement as you go through the frames, you begin to lose context, and your audience can start to get lost in the information. When you do this, you are not taking full advantage of the value of the open campus. We already covered how valuable spatial relationships are so but trying to find simple ways to rearrange and structure content, such as having two sides becoming one. We can add more meaning toe our overview and the last and most unforgivable president. No, no is the spin, and this is just simply overuse of rotation. The reason this is so terrible is that it starts to cause dizziness or nausea, and I don't know about you, but seasickness is definitely not a reaction I want from my audience. Luckily, this is very easily avoided, and if you do want to add irritation, try sticking to 30 to 45 degrees at time. This will keep the transition smoother and your audience shouldn't require any Dramamine. And that's just some ideas on how to approach the open canvassing. I hope this is really helpful for you to get started with your own president. 3. Outline: So no matter what type of presentation you're giving, it's important to start with an outline. It's the backbone of your presentation, and it's where a liar content is going to come from. It's really hard to give a presentation when you don't have any content to present on. The outline also keeps you on track again. If you have no content, it's really hard to design an overview or presentation that really relates to your message . When I receive outline it can bury in the file types. Usually, um, it's, Ah, existing power point. Or it could be a traditional word doc and traditional outlined format. It can be an entire script. It can also be a handler and piece of paper. Today, our outline is our resume, so that should already be readily available to you. But we're actually going to go through it just a little bit more. Um, oftentimes, first outline is not exactly ready for the open campus. There are some things we want to look for and try Teoh expand on. One thing we want to do is kind of look through and see if there is any opportunities for storytelling. So I'm going to highlight things I think are important, such as my occupation. I'm a graphic designer, so I want my presentation to highlight that and really show my capabilities. As a designer, I want to find specific projects. I want the design to be perfect. Things like that also maybe highlight my skills. If you look at my employment history and my education, I kind of move around it a bit. So maybe highlighting some of those little details, maybe even a little things such as my logo. Um, little things like that helped you find just a little ways. Teoh, spice up your presentation and make it a little bit more personal. And mark this up as much as you want. You never know what's going toe actually help you in the brainstorming stage of the, um, the process. 4. Brainstorming Overview: So now that we've gone through our resume and kind of marked up some of the important facts and possibly added some storytelling elements, I like to move on to brainstorming. So I'm just gonna start writing down things about myself going back to my resume. One thing that I highlighted that was important was I'm a graphic designer, so that can lead Teoh, um, things I like to do. So I love illustrator. I sometimes make icons for the non project. I'm making a crazy cat lady, I concept right now, which leads to the fact that I have two cats. Their names are maybe in Tobias. And yes, I did name them after arrested development characters. Other TV shows besides arrested development How I met your mother. Ah, game of Thrones. I'm currently reading Game of Thrones, which leads to the fact that my favorite book is Harry Potter. I really love Harry Potter. I actually collect those books in the languages of the countries I visit, which is another fun fact. Not everybody does that, um, going back to another part that I embarked upon my resume, the fact that I've lived a lot of places, so I grew up in Illinois, in the middle of the Midwest. I drew a lot which led me to go to art school in Florida. I love warm weather. So, um, I loved going to the beach and not dealing with snow. I lived in Pennsylvania for a while, and then I moved to San Francisco. Ah, fun fact about myself was my grandma used to live in San Francisco, and when I would visit her as a child, I actually really wanted to end up here someday. That could be, ah, good storytelling element to so just making lists of little things You never know where that's going to end up, and something that you think is completely mundane could end up being a brilliant idea. And then after I complete my word map, I can kind of go in and start sketching some of those ideas. So I'm gonna start new piece of paper. All right, so I'm gonna open to a new page, and I'm just gonna kind of write down a couple things that I really liked from my word map . Things like the San Francisco. Um, I will always wanted to be there idea as well as the fact that I've traveled a lot of places that I lived in a bunch of different places. I feel like that could be pretty cool or storytelling. And the metaphor, Um, my logo was the balloon. Maybe it would be cool to incorporate that somehow. And, um, a couple of things that aren't really obvious on the world map, but I feel are important is my cats and Harry Potter. If you ask anybody, um, in the office to describe me, they'll say Cats and Harry Potter almost 100%. So I feel like I should add that just because it's it's a fuck a couple fun facts about me . So somehow incorporate that into the presentation. So now I'm just going to start sketching, So anything that comes to mind, um, just get it out. One thing I'm drawing is just a map of the U. S. These don't have to be pretty. The point is to just kind of get as many ideas out there. Don't concentrate too long on one sketch. Maybe you do a timeline and use the balloon as the timeline that that may look cool. Or maybe the balloon is a timeline across the U S. From Illinois to San Francisco but actually drawing that the timeline would be backwards. And that's not not what I want to dio maybe kind of take this a step further and still use the map of the U. S. But have it illustrated as a cloud cause if I illustrate that as a cloud, I could have the balloon floating from place the place and finally ending up in San Francisco and I can do kind of a sky metaphor think I kind of like that idea Us looks a little wonky, but I'll fix it later. And once you start to explore these ideas, then you can go back and kind of refined your sketch. It still doesn't have to be pretty. You can fix that once you get on the computer. But the queen is just have a good and clear idea in your head of what you want to dio Um, and then it will make the creation process a little bit easier. 5. Gathering Assets: So now that you have a game plan, it's time to gather all our assets. So what I like to do is I keep a sample folder structure ready on my computer that I just duplicate and then rename and I can just go ahead and start putting my assets in. So I have my skill share folder and inside we have our president. And inside that folder is Ah, folder mark art, inspiration, screen flows, sketches, source video and it just helps keep me organized and places where I get the inspiration is again just personal photos from my iPhone stuff I myself create and then from stock. Resource is, if you're interested in using stock, resource is like you have some visuals that you're unable to create or images that you don't have access to. Some of the places I visit could be paid like shutter stock. I stock photo stock. See, there's also unpaid versions as well, such as the Noun project stock Snap 3 65 p. ST's. One thing to keep in mind, though with free stock websites, is make sure and see if you have to give credit to the artist. The noun project For example, if you download an icon for free, you have to give credit to the designer. So just be aware of that. If you're creating your own graphics and images, there's some guidelines you can follow. I'm not gonna take you through that graphic creation process. There are tons of great illustrator and Photoshopped tutorials already on skill share, and I encourage you to look those up. But I'm gonna give you some guidelines for best practices. So I'm opening photo shop, and one thing to keep in mind is what size you want to export. As there's no strict guidelines. It all depends on how big you want it to be and how far you're going to zoom in on that image. For instance, if you want the image to be full screen, ah, standard 16 by nine aspect ratio doesn't need to be any larger than 1900 by 10 80 pixels. If you're going to zoom in on it that make it a little bit bigger. In contrast, if it's going to just be a small graphic in the corner of your screen, then you don't need tohave it that big. Here. I have an image that I might use my presentation. It's an image of my hometown, and the way I'm going to use this image is it's not gonna be full screen that's going to be in the corner of my image. So I'm going to look at the image size right now. And if I go to image image size right now, it's 2000 pixels by 2000 pixels. If I'm just gonna have this in the corner of a frame, I don't need it that big. So what I'm going to do is save for Web, which the shortcut is command options shift s. And what that does is it brings up the safer Web window, and from there I can reduce the file size. And for this, I'm maybe going to make it 500 by 500. That should be big enough for what I need it for. Hit save, and then I can save it to one of my organized folders. Maybe I'm going to put that in high school. So now that have that saved a pretty good size, What I'm going to do is actually put it into another website, um called tiny PNG. I can do a little bit more toe, make the file size smaller, which, when creating larger presentations, is important. Having a bunch of large files and your presentations can cause a little bit of lag, so it's important to know how to properly optimize. And tiny PNG is a great resource in compressing those images. What tiny PNG is is basically a website where you can drop your J pegs and PNG's and compress those images without losing quality. So I'm just going to go ahead and find on that picture that I just exported and open it in tow. Tiny PNG and after it uploads and compresses. Right now we can see that, um, the size is about 326 kilobytes. It was compressed to 98 kilobytes eso 70% which is a significant amount. And when you have a lot of those images in your presentations, that can really help decrease the loading time. So then I just go ahead and download on and save it. Usually, I just saved over the previous file, replace it and we're good to go, and it's ready to be uploaded in the president. For those of you creating your own graphics. There's some guidelines as well. For exporting vector files. President supports two types of vector files, one being pdf, the other being SWF. So the difference between SWF in pdf is if you export a file as a pdf, it does not support transparency. So if you don't want a background or a white box behind your graphic don't export as pdf instead, I'm go the swf for out. And there's some important things to keep in mind when dealing with us to be left. So right here we have, um, my illustrator file of on my overview, which is, uh, cloud map. And if you notice, um, this cloud map is made up of a bunch of different circles. Ah, factor file is made up of a bunch of different points. And when you export the SWF file, you don't see all those points that at the same time they're still there and presidents trying to load all those points. And even though you might have a relatively small file size, it's still going to slow down your president cause it's trying to render each of those points. So some best practices is to actually simplify your vectors and make sure any compound shapes are merged so that the vector is in its simplest form. At that point, I can go ahead and high my background here, go to file export and select format flash and save into my SWF boulder, Um, as US map, go ahead and replace the previous one. Okay, so there you go. Now we have some organized folder and all our assets together. It's important to just stay organized so you can find things easily and sticking to some best practices, so your presentation runs smoothly as possible. 6. Creating a New Prezi: Okay, so we did all our preparation. Now we can finally start getting into president and getting to know the editor and eventually start building your presentation. So just some background. I'm going to be using the online editor with a pro subscription in a chrome browser. If you have a pro license and would like to follow along and dust up, that's OK to Theo. Only significant difference is that when I go through privacy and sharing options, most of them are only available to show on the online editor. So I'm gonna go ahead and open a new presi. So click on new Pressey. It's gonna take a minute to load. Once out loads, you're gonna have the option to choose from a template or start from blank. How did the side between template or blank really depends on how much work you want to put into it? Kind of look at it like choosing what you want for dinner. If you want something a little quicker, a little easier, like a pizza, then go ahead and choose a template. If you wanna put a little bit more time into it, make it a little bit more customized. like making a steak dinner, for example. Then go with blank. There's no shame in starting from a template. There's a lot of solid metaphors already pre designed for you, and if something works for you, go with it. But for the purpose of this tutorial, I'm gonna go through and start from blank. So this is the president editor. Andi. Just some simple navigation to zoom in and out. Just use your scroll wheel to zoom in and out. If you'd rather do it another way, you can move your cursor over to the right side of the screen and the soul box will pop up and you can click on the plus sign to zoom in or at the minus science. Zoom out. There is also the home, but in which, if you click on that will bring you to the overview and re orient you to your presentation . Moving on to the top are first off. We have the title of our presentation right now. It's untitled, but it's really simple. Toe re title. Your presentation. All you have to do is click anywhere on the screen and add text. The first thing you type into your president will be the tile of your presentation. I'm just gonna click on this area that says Click to add text and because this is my president, I'm gonna call it Megan Hendricks, a graphic designer. Then I just need to click off and you can see that the presentation was renames Moving on. We have the undo button as well as Redux, and next to that, a safe button. Don't worry about the safe, but in too much has the auto saves from time to time and does a pretty good job about it. Usually the only times when I hit the save button is when I'm pushing president to the limits, and you actually have to do a lot of damage to have that happen. So really, just don't worry about it. Moving on. We have the insert tab, and this is where you can insert most of your content, whether it be images, symbols and shapes your videos. So just going down through the options, the first thing we have is image, so you can insert an image from your personal files or you can search the Web and get images from Google are flicker after that We have symbols and shapes when the symbols and shapes are just a pre made batch of icon styles that you can go through and just insert into your presentation. Um, this is all personal preference. If you want to use thes, you can. Um, after that, we have insert YouTube video. If you click on that, you can paste a link into on this field hit insert, and it's in your president. Close out that after that we have favorites. And what favorites are is just a library of graphics and images you've already used in presentations that you can save to use and future presentations whenever you want. After that, we have layouts and layouts are just pre set up frames with places to put text and images. Eso toe. Add those to your president. Just click on one and dragged into your presentation, and you can see if I zoom in. There is the options. Add text, and so far there's also multi frame louts And what these are just pre made diagrams and structures. So, for instance, linear progressions cycles, uh, timelines. We have an iceberg, a bunch of options available if you so choose to use thumb. Close out that and moving on after that. Some other simple shapes, like arrows, lines, highlighter, um, then we have background music. So some things about background music is I wouldn't use it if you're giving a live presentation. It's very distracting. And, um, you don't want your audience to get distracted from what you have to say. But if you want to use it for presentations that are never going to be presented, lying live there meant to live online like your president, that's an option. But keep in mind to keep it subtle. You don't want it way too distracting. You wanna have a add a little bit of atmosphere to your presentation to show your personality. But if you have something way too loud and somebody has their head phones in and opens your presentation on and they'll expect music to be playing, then that's gonna be jarring moving on. Then we also have inserting from file like Pdf video and also Power Point. I'm not going to go through the process of creating oppressive from a power point that could be an entire skill share class in itself. But I will say keep in mind when inserting existing power point that not everything is directly translatable into President um, Power point themes and some of your fonts might not be able to be loaded into a Pressey, and you're gonna still need to do a little tweaking and refining to have it. I'm really shine and president, so just keep that in mind. One, um, using that feature. Usually I use it in cases where I am starting from a power point, and there's a lot of text and images I might be using from it. And it saves me time rather than going into power point, exporting those images, copying all that tax and then bringing him into present. After that, we have the customized tab, and this is where you can start to change the colors and fonts within your presentation and kind of bring the style to life. So first we have our background image that just can add a little bit of atmosphere to your president. After that, there's pre selected themes. Um, if you want to change the colors rather quickly and you can stick with ease that maybe they have a style that fits your needs, Um, after that we have your themes. So if you make tweaks to a specific theme, I'm using the advanced tab than you can save that and use that later and other proxies, but we'll get into more of that in a minute. Uh, after customized, we have present, which allows you to, um, present your presentation and actually give you a preview of what your presentations going toe look like and kind of check and see what you might have to change if you want to leave the present mode head escape on your keyboard and I'll bring you back into the editor. After that, we have our share settings, different options of sharing your Pressey as well as downloading your presentation. Next to that we have our settings, and this is where you can change your screen ratio. So if you know, um, what size screen you're going to be presenting and you can go ahead and change that here it's off by defaults. If you don't know what you're presenting in, don't worry, as you will automatically adjust. I typically, like Teoh, just start with 16 by nine, because that's typically what full screen monitor is. It also gives me a hint at what my presentations going to look like before I even go into present mode. So one thing I want everybody to do is actually turn on this box that says enable shortcuts . Usually it's off by default. And even if you don't use shortcuts, I'm gonna walk through some of the shortcuts I use on a regular basis while building the presi. And if you have them off and want to try them yourself, it's not gonna work. So just go ahead and turn those on the next so that we have a help button, which, if you have questions about any specific future or tool, um, you can go ahead and search for that, and I'll bring up articles from our learning support. And then after that, we have our exit. So just except the president so moving on to the left toolbar, we have, um, a path. And this side bar is set up much like, um, other presentations. Software's like Power Point. It's just the different frames and your presentation and how they're organized. From here. You can also click and rearrange, um, and just get a general idea of how your presentations flowing above that, we have the option to add new frames. So to add a new frame, just click and drag to the canvas underneath. There we have the option to change the frame. Now there are four different frames and crazy, so there's bracket circle rectangle invisible. All are there to serve different aesthetic preferences. I myself like to use the circles and invisible frames a lot, the circles, because I think they look better at overview level. But that's just my personal preference and invisible because they're very useful. For instance, if I drive and drop, if I changed two invisible and drag and drop that to the screen, you can see this hidden frame in the Edit month. But if we go into present, it's no longer visible. And that's the editor in a nutshell. On DNA. Now that you're familiar with it, we can go ahead and start building our presentation 7. Customize: before I dive in and start creating my presentation. I like to set up my fonts and my colors. I usually go back throughout the presentation building and make tweaks, but I like to start out with something closer to what I have in mind for the final. So I'm gonna open my customized tab and let's just go over again. Um, what's the here? So we have our background image. First, we have preset themes. We have a priest, let selection of teams. Um, and you have options to add your own themes and the advanced tab. First, I'm gonna go ahead and add a background image. I'm gonna go ahead and choose my present. May be G open that up and first off, because I have been having a little bit of a larger images giving me an error that says to larger image, you have the twist to resize or keep original. I'm actually going to keep the original because I know it's not way too big as a rather small file size. Um, but just some things to keep in mind when choosing the size to export your background image . I typically do something between 2000 pixels wide and 3000 pixels wide because you're gonna zoom in just a little bit on that and you don't want any picks. Elation. Some other things to keep in mind when choosing a background image is to keep it subtle. You don't want anything too distracting that is going to take the focus away from your content. I typically like backgrounds where it's just settle. It adds atmosphere and changes the mood of my presentation. Now that the image is loaded, that's kind of take a look of what it looks like. If we can assume around the canvas, we kind of noticed that our content moves separately from the background, giving at a nice parallax again, contributing to that nice atmosphere we want have a bunch of birds flying around the campus . Now. It kind of looks like a sky, which is exactly what I wanted. Now we're gonna go ahead and make more tweaks to our theme and change the colors and the fonts just a little bit. Let's go down past the preset themes and look at your themes, so your themes are just themes that you've taken and customize and saved, and so that you can use in other presentations. So we're going to skip that and go to advanced because I'm gonna make tweaks to this theme . I already have colors in mind that I want to use in my presentation. So I'm gonna just make some subtle tweaks when you first open Advanced, it'll bring up this theme wizard window. It starts out being an advanced mode, but we're going to move over to the Wizard just to go over the basic tweaking and customization. So we have the option to change our background color to, ah, bunch of pre select options. We can change or replace our background image, and we can add a custom logo. I have my own logo. So I'm gonna go ahead and upload that Typically for this type of logo, keep it small. No more than 100 pixels high should be good. So I'm gonna go ahead and select my logo open. What's going to happen is it's just gonna appear in the bottom left hand corner of your presentation and present mode and just constantly be there. If I hit the next button, then it moves into fonts and colors. So here, Aiken change my fonts. So impressive. There's about 15 to 16 fonts you can choose from. I'm gonna just go ahead and choose fonts that I like. I kind of like a Leo. I'll use the layoff for my title. Text for subtitle text. I kind of like to do something a little bit more crazy for call outs, so I'm gonna do maybe a handwritten font. Um, my whole metaphor is a balloon floating across the U. S. So it's a little whimsical, and then I have the option to choose 1/3 front for the body, but I'm going to choose a Leo. I like to keep things simple and not use way too many phones. The hit. Next again. You can also choose pre select colors for you're sprains and lines and arrows and also your highlighter. I'm not gonna change any of the colors here because I want a little bit more customized. Let's move back onto the advanced tab here. You can get a little bit more specific what the colors you want to use by in putting RGB codes and sub choosing from a preset bunch of colors. If you're unfamiliar with RGB codes, what it is is just a set of numbers that indicates the amount of red, green and blue that makes up a color. So I only have some colors in mind and I have the RGB codes written down or colors I want to change, particularly in the text in the background. So I'm gonna change those here. So for my text, I want a rich dark green to contrast with the blue sky. So I'm going to type in my RGB code here and again, I have these written down. I don't have these numbers and you can see as I change that the color of the type. It in this theme lizard has changed, too, where we typically get my RGB codes and color codes from is Photoshopped and Illustrator. But if you don't have access to image I dating software, there's a bunch of different websites you can go to. I typically go to color lovers or cooler. I also have this app called Classic Color Meter that you can get on the APP store, which lets you I drop certain colors on your screen. Now that I've changed my title, I'm going to actually change the color of the subtitle. It's kind of the sprite pink and I don't really want That s so I'm gonna just change that to black and black is the absence of color. So the RGB could for that is just a zero 00 Very simple. And I'm just gonna leave the body the way it is. The the, um the grey is perfect right now. The last thing I'm gonna change in here is the background color. So I have my rgb ring down for that and it's gonna be a lighter blue. So it's 1 41 206 and 203 or and so I have this nice minutes blue color that I really love. I'm not gonna mess with any of my frame colors right now, but, um, you can go ahead. And if you have RG because you want to use their as well, you can go ahead and make changes to that. But I think I'm pretty good for now. I click done and you conceive My changes implemented isn't the next step is to start talking about the C s s editor, but we're gonna go move on to that in a separate video because it's a little bit more complicated 8. The CSS Editor - Part 1: So we just went over some of the basic ways to customize your colors and fonts and the theme wizard. But like I said before, I want to get a little bit more customized. So I'm going to use the CSS editor before I actually get into the CSS editor. I'm going to actually insert something for my favorites. So I'm gonna go to insert Favorite. And what I have in my favorites is just all the shapes and frames and fonts and everything that you can use and Pressey just all laid out. So I'm going to drag and drop that into the campus so we can see our colors changing as we mess with the CSS. Now that I have that in the campus, I could just go to customize, um, scroll to the bottom of the customized tab, go to advanced and hit this link that says, use the presidency s s editor. But I promise you guys shortcuts and we haven't got into any of those. So I'm just gonna hit, cancel and show you the shortcut to get into the CSS. The shortcut for the C. S s editor is command shift see? And that will bring up this at its CS s window. When you first look at this window, it can look pretty intimidating to some people, especially if you don't know any sort of code or CSS. But it's actually not that hard if you know what you can change and what to look for. So I'm just gonna kind of scroll through this box and change some of the things you can mess with and add cool effects too. The first thing you see are the font faces were actually gonna skip these because it's a lot easier just to change them and the theme wizard, but scribblings through. We see the font faces, um, fonts, styles. It just houses all the bold italic versions. But we're going to stop once we get to background. This is the first thing I really like to mess with when changing the style of my president . Right now, you see two lines of code and it says grad end with a hex code and grad start with a hex code similar to an RGB code. A hex code is also a code that corresponds to a color this time as a six digit alpha numeric sequence. So this hex code is actually the same color as the R G P code. I put in the theme wizard, so I'm not really gonna change that. What I am do is going to modify it a bit. So right now, both of these hex codes are the same color. I'm just going to change the color of one of them. So I'm going to mess with the grad start hex code and change it to a lighter version of that meant color. So I get these hex codes from the same places I get my RGB codes. So photo shop illustrator, if you don't have image or graphic editing software, you can get them on websites such as color lovers, um, cooler. And if you want to download the APP classic color meter, you can get those there too. So I'm gonna go ahead and write down the other hex code and hit apply, and it's kind of hard to see. But instead of just being a solid color, it's now linear ingredients, which adds a nice little subtle effect to my background. But I can take this a step further and change the type of radiant on the background is so to do that, I need to add a line of code and keep in mind when writing these lines of code, it has to be exactly the way I typed. Um, it's case sensitive, but there's no space in a place where there is a space. It won't work. So I'm gonna actually zoom in a bit so you can see a little bit better as I type. So what I'm going to type in is great lower case grad um, uppercase type Poland Space radio and then finish that up with a semi colon. So scrolling back out, going to hit, apply. And then what that does is give it a nice radio ingredient natural C sections that say on things such as text titles, text subtitle, text, body and they also have options. Put a hex code. So if you want to change the color here, as opposed to the theme wizard you can. So you keep scrolling to get to a section that has the word background in it and what this is, is that basically a highlight on your text? If we look at the text I have placed in my campus right now. You can see for the text title there's this, like, bright pink highlight on it. I don't think I actually want that right. Pink background color on it. So I'm going to change that. Teoh just so white. Um and what I'm gonna do is change the hex code in the field mark, background color. And for white, it's a super easy hex coach, Remember? Cause it's just efs all the way through so f f f f f f And when I hit, apply the text. Background is now white. I can mess with a couple other things here, such as If I want to change the transparency a little bit, you would look for the section mark background slash Alfa and after that you have a decimal point. So here you can put in any number between zero and one zero being completely transparent, one being completely opaque. And that's what point being a percentage in between. Right now, it sets a 0.8 so 80% opaque, and I'm just gonna bring that down just a little bit, Teoh. 50%. So 500.5. And when I had apply, it's very subtle, but um there's a little bit more transparency to this background. You can also mess with one more setting, which is the background padding. And what padding is is the amount of space around the text. Right now it's at five. But if I didn't want any padding at all, I consent that zero, and the highlight would be very tight around the text. But it is always nice to have a little bit breathing room, so I'm gonna just put that at three. And that should give me something that I'm satisfied with. I'm not gonna mess with the other two backgrounds for subtitling body because I don't usually use this that often. And I'm kind of OK with what it looks like now. So I'm gonna have skip a little bit further until you see sections marked frame. So frame circle free and bracket and frame rectangle. And this is where we can start to have a lot of fun with the code we put in 9. The CSS Editor - Part 2: so looking at frame circle, there is a whole lot of lines of code we can mess with. Just going over some border Alfa will be the transparency of the border. Right now, there's no border on the circle frame order thickness would be how thick that border is. And then after that, we have Grad and Alfa, which would be again Transparency, Grad and Color, which would be color grad Start Alfa Again. Transparency and Grad start color color again. Then we also have the padding settings in the thickness settings. The first thing I'm actually going to mess with is if we zoom in on the circle frame, you notice that it just looks like a border and it's not filled in, but our borders set zero. So what's up with that? So circle frames automatically have nothing is inside. It's not filled in, um, and you can mess with with the size of the stroke like appearance by messing with thickness . So right now, said the five, if I brought it up to 10 it would get a little bit thicker. But I'm gonna go ahead and put that all the way up. Teoh 100 and What that does is completely fills in the circle, allowing you to place that's a content anywhere, regardless, Teoh how busy the background is. I'm not sure if I want my circle two been completely green. So I'm going to change it toe white and maybe change the border color to the dark green Just so it's completely filled in. But it has a pop of color. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to change grad, start color and grad and color to white, which is again f f f f f s. And then I need to add another line of code that says border color. So I'm gonna just to keep all my border settings together, I'm going to add a line after border thickness and right, lower case border uppercase color Colin, space number sign, and then the hex code of the color. It looks like I added a a there. So fix that it's going to be the same dark green as I use for my text and then to finish it up and with us, Michael. And when we hit, apply on the frame changed toe white. But you still can't see the boat border. That's because the border Alfa is set to zero as well as the border thickness. So we're gonna mess with those just a bit. I don't know if I want my border transparency to be completely opaque. Sometimes it's nice, just adult bit of transparency so it can see what's going on behind the frame. So I'm gonna set that. So maybe 0.8, That should be enough. And I'm gonna set my border thickness to five to start out with the see how that looks. And now you can see the border by Still think it's just too small. So I'm gonna bump that up a lots of 15. And I think now I'm kind of happy with that. You can see the border and it's a nice thickness. The next thing I'm gonna do is I'm going to mess with the transparency of the fill. So I'm going to go to Grad and Alfa and grad Star Alfa, and right now they're set to one. But I'm gonna have a little bit of fun with this time. What I'm going to do is change it to different decimal points. So it's a bit of a great again from one transparency to another. So I'm going to start with maybe, um, 0.7 for the start and maybe 0.4 for the end and see how that looks. And I think that looks pretty cool. It's very subtle, but, um, and you can still see what's going on behind it. But at the same time, if I have content on it, um, background won't distract. Um, moving on to frame bracket. I don't use these that often, but I'm going to change just the color to again that dark green to make sure it's consistent if I still decided to use it at some point. So just going to add that hex code in? Add this hex code for both Brad and color and grab start color hit apply. It's during the canvass a bit, and now my bracket frame is the same color you can also add. Transparency is to this if you want for some cool effects, but I'm not gonna mess with that for now because I'm not gonna use it. The last frame is the rectangle frame, and right now there's this blue border on it that I'm not really okay with. So I'm going to go ahead and take that off just by changing border Alfa 20 And just to go over one more cool thing you can do on rectangle frames that you can't do on any other frames is you can change the radius of the corners so you can have rounded corners instead of the sharp right angles. So I'm just gonna change the radius to maybe 10 so you can see it if we zoom in on this rectangle you can see. Now it's a rounded corner. So we just went over a couple fun ways to mess with the style of your text as well as your frames. But let's take a break before we move on to the next sections, which are the shapes. 10. The CSS Editor - Part 3: Now it's time to talk about shapes. So in the CSS editor, there are two sections where you can edit shape styles. The first is the Lion Arrow, and the other is just shape, which is the rest of the shapes in your theme. Let's start with talking about the Lion Arrow. If I click on one of these lines, you noticed that it has a style setting. If you click on the style setting, there are actually five colors that you can use for your lines or you and same with the arrows. One thing to keep in mind that if you were to just freehand draw a line or a narrow, the first color that would be appear would be the third style. So if there's a color, you're gonna be using a lot for lines and arrows. Try to set that as the third style. I'm gonna go down to lie in a row south three and mess with the color on this style because this is the line or aero, I'm going to be using the most. So just click off your shape and click back into the CSS. So one thing to know about lines and arrows in the CSS is color will map to the line, and then grad ends and grad start Well, Matt to the arrow. So for lines, you can on Lee have a solid color. So I'm going to change that to again. My dark green hit apply and not worry about the line anymore. So now I'm going to start concentrating on my era where we can actually do some really cool things. I'm going to also change this arrow to the dark green. So I'm going to, um So I'm going to type in the same hex code. And actually, I'm just gonna copy and paste. At this point, I'm using this a lot apply. And then my third arrow is that same dark green. So I could do the same thing I did in the background and changed the one of the hex codes on the colors to maybe fade from a darker green to a lighter green. I'm actually gonna do this instead with the transparency. So I'm going to just go ahead and write grad uppercase start over case Alfa Colon one finishing that up with a semicolon and then Laura case grad upper case and uppercase Alfa Colon. And we'll have that set at zero. Finishing that up with a semicolon when I had apply. Then it gives a nice effect because the arrowhead is completely opaque, but it fades often to nothing, which is a style. I tend to use a lot just because I find it pleasing. So that's going to probably be the only heir I used. But I want to show you one more cool effects. So I'm going to mess with this last white arrow a bit just to see what else you can dio. So I'm going to scroll down to Lyon Arrow style five, and I'm not going to change the color at all. One thing you might notice is it's only three s. And because the hex code is just efs across the board, sometimes you can get away with just typing in three instead of all six. But don't really worry about that. Um, what I'm going to actually do is add a border. So I'm going to first write in border, um, uppercase color colon. And I'm just gonna do black because I know that one off the top of my head. So number number sign and black again Absence of color said Just straight zeroes. So 000 000 semi colon. And just to make sure the border shows up, I'm going to make sure that transparency goes all the way up. So I'm going to write in lower case border uppercase Alfa Colon and set that to one, finishing that off with again a semicolon. So when I hit apply now, my arrow has a nice little border. So moving on, let's get into some of the shapes. And again, if you click on a shape, um, it will have the style button and five different styles you can choose from. So I'm gonna click off of that and mess with the third circle. So shape that style. Three. So what I want to do for this is have a white circle with a quarrel border toe act as an accent color in my presentation and the contrast the greens immense that are taking over my presentation. So to do this first, I'm just gonna set my colors toe white. So, for grad and color and grad start color, I'm just going to put f f f f F f and then to add my border. I'm going to write border of her case color cool in and right in my hex code. Finishing that off with a semicolon and hit apply. I can't see the border right now, but if I, um, delete the shape and re dry it and again another shortcut ass on your keyboard will bring up a shape. And if you keep heading ass, it will cycle through those shapes. Until you get to a circle. I'm gonna draw that, Still not showing up. So I'm going Teoh ad another line of code just saying border uppercase Alfa colon one. We'll see what that does. And now my borders showed up and looking back at the circle, I'm going to take you through some more of the settings. So if you have a border on your shape, you'll see two buttons that show up in the settings. So the secretes is your border thickness, and clicking on the other one will increase the border thickness so you can mess with. That's a taste. I'm also gonna mess with the color of one more shape. One thing I like to do in every presentation I create is create a shape color that can act as a shadow if I want to add in a shadows behind objects. So what I'm going to do is nuts with the second shape color. First, I'm gonna change both colors to black. So 000000 hit, apply. And now we have a completely black circle, but I want it to look like a shadow. So now I'm going to mess with the transparency again. So again adding lower case. Grad upper case starts upper case Alfa Colon. And I think I'm just We want this to be subtle. So I'm going to start with just something very light like point to and then semi colon on them and that I'm adding grad uppercase end uppercase Alfa, and I'm just gonna have that fade out to nothing. So zero adding another semicolon hit apply. And now my shape is very shadow like we scroll through a bit further. There's just a couple other settings that don't really do anything much to your styles. I wouldn't worry about them, but I'm just gonna go ahead and hit apply close out CSS. And now that I have customized might seem a bit. I'm just gonna go ahead and save my current theme so I can go back to it later. Or if I mess it up at any points and make more changes and possibly ones I don't like, I can go back to it at any point. So that was just some advanced customization in the CSS editor. But if you're still looking at it and feeling intimidated, don't worry about it. Stick with theme lizard. It's just gives you some more options for customization and effects if you so choose to use them. 11. Creating Your Overview - Part 1: So now that I have my colors and think I'm set up, I'm ready to actually start building my president. All right, so the first thing I'm gonna do is I'm just going to delete this frame that's been here the entire time. It don't need it right now and just start from a blank canvas. Now, I'm just gonna go ahead and insert my main graphic because I'm inserting an image from my file. We're going to get into another shortcut. We could go down into this drop down menu and hit image and then select from file. But instead, I'm just gonna hit l on my keyboard and that will bring up my folder so I can select my image. So right now, I'm in my image folder, so I'm going to move into my vector folder because my main graphic isn swf, so I'm gonna go ahead and grab my US map, open it, and after it processes a minute, I can place that where I want campus somewhere near the center. So I'm going to insert again by hitting L on my keyboard. And I'm going to go and have an ad logo for those of you who don't have a logo, you can just write your name. I'm using the text feature, which I'm going to show you in a moment. So now that have my logo added, I need to add my title to add text. I'm just going to click anywhere on the campus, and my text box will come up right now it's set to body, but I want to send it to title, and I'm going to type graphic designer. So just to go over some of the text options here, there are the three text options I chose in the theme Wizard, and I can go ahead and change it to either subtitle body, but I'm gonna keep it as my title text. And I also have the option to increase the size decrease the size. I can change the color from a pre select group of colors. I can bold my text. I can a tile size my text, which kind of looks good, so I'm gonna keep it the way that is. I can add my background color if I want. It's not needed right now, so I'm just gonna turn it off if you want to add bullet points you can, but I don't recommend that for right now. And my title. I can't just in alignment. Teoh center, um, right. Aligned or justified? Right now, I'm gonna slit centered. I can also add, invents or decrease Indians. Also, if I however my cursor over the bottom right hand corner of the screen, a little circle should appear, and you can click on that and resize from there. You can also drag on these arrows to increase the text box size or decrease the text box size. So I'm gonna click off that, then re select my text. And when I have my text selected, there is a box above it that says, Edit text ads The favorites or delete. There is also in the center of the text all hand, which, if you click on the hand and move and drag, you couldn't move your text around. You can also increase the size from here or decrease the size from here. You can also resize your text by pulling on each of the corners which will resize from the center, and you could also have the option of rotating your text on. And that happens when you move your cursor a little bit off the corners of the bounding box and your cursor will turn into the rotating icon, and you could just rotate if you like. So I'm just gonna move this and re size to be right underneath my name and click off. So now that I have a good start to my overview, I'm just gonna go ahead and place an invisible frame around it so I can see my boundaries. So one thing I can do is is drag and drop this invisible frame onto the canvas. But instead, I'm just gonna undo that and hit F on my keyboard. Heading F on your keyboard will turn your cursor into an indicator for what frame you want . A free draw. If you keep getting after ill cycle through the different types of frames, I'm going to stick with invisible and then click hold down shift and just drag. What holding down shift will do is keep the frame the size of our aspect ratio, and now I have my frame drawn. One of the things about frames is they group the content within them. So if I was to click on this frame and start dragging this frame around, it's going to move all my contact content within it. Also, if I want to resize this frame much like I resize text, it will also resize the content inside. Click off this for a minute, and one cool thing you can dio is if you hold down also while clicking on the frame, it will disable the grouping, and you can resize and move the frame without affecting your content. So I'm just gonna just this frame so that my content inside is laid out the way I want it to be. So just a couple other things about frames. Let's go through the different buttons that are associated with it. The 1st 1 is doomed to frame. If we click on that, it will zoom to the content inside and kind of gray out the edges. So you get a hint of what your friends going to look at. Zoom back out again and click on that from again. You also have different frame options, so right now we have ahead and frame. If I click on frame options, I can change the type of frame. I can also remove the frame without deleting the content inside it. I also have the option of adding this entire frame to my favorites and just dragging that backed into any other president create. There's also the delete button. But keep in mind if you hit that button, it will delete the content inside it as well. So now I have my overview frame set up, and it's time to start adding the other friends for where we're going to go in the presentation. So before I go ahead and add additional frames, I want to actually go ahead and paste my revised outline into the president. So I just want ahead and copied my outline from Google docks, and I'm just going to click on the canvas and paste my entire outline right into the canvas . Click off soon out. I'm just kind of kind of resize this text box just a little bit, so it's not so crazy. So now that I have my outline pasted into my canvas, I can see that it's broken down into six sections, so I'm gonna need six mainframes in this instance. I'm going to use a circle frame, so I'm going to hit after my keyboard and cycled through until I get a circle frame and then just click and drag on the canvas. So now I'm going to click on my circle, and I could go ahead and draw those friends again. But instead I'm gonna use another shortcut called Duplicate. So I'm just gonna hit command d, um, on my keyboard, and I'll just duplicate the object right next to it, same size and all. So I'm just going to do that or more times. And now I have six frames. What I'm going to do next is just pulled text for my outline and place them into these frames. So just highlighting the first section of my outline, um, clicking and dragging them into the different frames. And I'm just going to repeat this until I have all my sections hold. So now that I have my outline broken up and separated into separate frames, I'm just gonna leave them for a bit. I'm going to move on toe, adding just some more graphics to my overview 12. Creating Your Overview - Part 2: So the idea for my metaphor is to actually take the bloom. That's a part of my logo and have it on different places in the US where I've lived. So I'm going to go ahead and make that balloon graphic and put it on the different areas where I've lived. So going ahead and zooming in on my cloud map, I'm gonna go ahead and insert my balloon. In this case, I'm just going to keep going toe insert image. Sometimes I like doing that and I'm going to go ahead and select my balloon swf. Now, I could go ahead and just place this balloon. The way is on different places where I've lived, but I wanna spice it up just a bit. I mentioned earlier when going through the CSS editor that I, like toe have a shape style in my toolkit that can act as a shadow. So I'm going to go ahead and add a shadow to this balloon, so gonna click off the balloon and hit us on my keyboard for shape. And if you keep heading s, it will cycle through the different shapes as well as arrows and lines until you get the shape you want, so I'm gonna stop at rectangle and just click and drag. So going through the shape options, it's very similar to the frames and the text, but it also has its own parameters. The first thing you see is the increase or decrease on border thickness. So if I click on decrease will make the border smaller. If I click on increase will make it bigger. You also have the option to change your style color. So I'm gonna go ahead and click on my second style color, which is my shadow going back. You also have the option that add to favorites and elite. So right now, migrating is pointing in the wrong direction. So I'm gonna go ahead and rotate this about 90 degrees and just kind of move it and resize it by pulling on the edges to be about the same size as my balloon. Right now it's in front of my balloon, which is not giving off the idea of a shadow. So I'm gonna go ahead, right click on the hand in the middle and select send backward. Now that sent back word. It looks like my A balloon has a little bit of a shadow. So what I'm gonna do now is select both the shadow and the balloon by holding down shift, clicking and dragging and pulling this rubber band around both the shape and the bloom. What this does is gives me the option to group these objects. So I'm gonna go ahead hit group, but I'm not done yet. What I want to do is add a label on this balloon to show the exact city and state that I lived in. So I'm gonna go ahead, click anywhere on the canvas, open a text box and select subtitle. This first balloon is gonna actually go in my hometown, which is Cherry Illinois, and I am gonna actually change the color toe white instead of the default lack. Click off and place it on my balloon. And I'm actually gonna pull the state from the town and put them on separate lines and do a little minor tweaks to make it look like it's more hand drawn. So it's slightly rotating one of the text boxes just a little bit to give it a more human. I feel again I'm gonna click and Dragon Select Book those pieces of text hit group and move and resize on the balloon. At this point, I can select everything, group everything and just resize and place it where it needs to be on this US map. So at this point, I'm just going, um, duplicate these balloons and start placing them where they need to be on the map as well as changed the city and state title. - So this is just an example of how to make your graphics a little bit more personal and president. So now that I have my balloons place approximately where I want them to be now I can start placing my mainframes near them. So I'm going to zoom out and over to the frames I previously created and just go ahead and select all of them by again clicking and dragging and making the rubber band select all of them and move them a little bit closer to my map and a little bit smaller. So now I can just go ahead and start placing them. So just looking at the 1st 1 it's just my introduction tells it, tells people who I am, so I'm just gonna go ahead and place that at San Francisco Just moving that down. Now it's good. The next one is my personal stories. So I'm gonna go ahead and move that on Cherry and just gonna go ahead and do this for the rest of them as well. So now I have all my friends place where I need them to be. The last step is to start making connection points between all of them. So the reason I'm adding connection points is to show the direction that moved across the U . S. So I'm gonna do the spy placing arrows so zooming out to my overview a bit, I'm going to draw an arrow by hitting us on my keyboard again and just cycle through to your cursor turns into use the arrow. So I'm just gonna click and drag from actually chariots to Orlando and just some things about arrows. When you first draw an arrow, there's going to be three points on that arrow. If you click on one of the endpoints, it will lengthen and shorten your arrow and actually move where that point is. So I'm just gonna place one endpoint on Cherry and one endpoint near Orlando for the midpoint. If you click and drag on it, it will curve your arrow in a certain direction. So I'm just gonna keep curving until it's the way I want it to look and just do slight adjustments. And I'm going to do that again from Orlando to Pennsylvania and from Pennsylvania to San Francisco. To do that, I could just duplicate the same arrow instead of just drawing it. I'm just going to adjust until it's the way I want it to be. I think I'm happy with that. So just gonna click off and kind of see how it looks. So now I have clear connections between the different parts of my story. So one of the last things I want to do on my overview is created dotted line between Cherry and San Francisco, because this is a big part of my storytelling element to my presentation. I always dreamed of moving to San Francisco as a child, so I feel like adding that just adds another personal touch. So what? Making the started line? I could go ahead and make the dotted line and illustrator, but the problem with that is if I decide on changing the colors of my lines that last minute I have to go back into illustrator re export the file and bring it into president. So finding any opportunity where I can build something impressive is important to me. So I'm gonna show you how to make a dotted line. First off, there is no actual dotted line. And Pressey, there's just the solid line. So I'm going toe, have to go ahead and place each line myself to make this process easier. I'm going to go ahead and draw a regular solid line. So s on my keyboard cycle through 12 till I get toe line and draw a line so I could keep the simple and just keep it the simple curd blind. But to me, that's a little boring. So I'm going to add a little bit of a car like you. So to do this, I'm going to need three solid lines, so I'm just going to adjust this duplicate that line and another fund back to know about lines as the mid points will snap to each other. So I'm just gonna snap this one end point to the other and move the other M points maybe about right here and pull on this midpoint until I have a circle. And that looks pretty good. Maybe just a couple more adjustments, All right? And then just one more line to finish that up. It's pretty solid in What other thing I'm going to do is because I'm going to use this deep green color as my dotted line. I'm going to change the salad line to a different color so I can actually see my dotted line form. So maybe this light blue might be good. All right, so now I'm just gonna zoom very closely in on the solid line and start drawing smaller lines and increasing the thickness to, um something that looks good to me. That looks about right, that I'm just gonna duplicate this line until I finish the curlicue. Once I have a couple drawn, sometimes it's easier. Just Teoh, select a couple and duplicate them all the same time. It makes the process of it, Esther. So I'm just going to go ahead and select bigger groups of lions and duplicating those. It's a very tedious process, but sometimes I kind of like tedious things. Especially early in the morning. when it before I've had coffee just to kind of get May brain going. So what this Curly Q. Here in the middle, I'm actually going Teoh curve my tiny lines just a little bit. Teoh adjust around the sharpness of the curve. And then I just moved the midpoint just a little bit just slightly. Just a couple more duplications and pretty much going to have this wrapped up. And at that point now I have my dotted line. I can go ahead and delete guide, and that looks pretty good. I'm gonna zoom out to see how it all looks, but I think we have our overview. So now our overviews done, and the template for our presentation is complete. All that's left is to start adding our content, rearranging things and start adding photos and just adding meaningful movement to our presentation. 13. Adding Your Content - Part 1: So now that we have the overview done and the backbone of our press he created, it's time to start placing and arranging our content. So I'm going to start by arranging and formatting the text on the first frame of my presentation, which is my introduction. So I'm just gonna click on that frame to zoom in on it. So now that we're here in in my frame, I can start breaking apart this tax and arranging it the way I want it. I'm first going to start by looking through it and dissecting the information. So first off, I have an introduction statement that says, Hi, I'm Megan, and I think this should be bigger and bolder. It's just introducing my audience to me. So I'm just gonna pull that text out and bold it for now. Just leave it for a minute. The next part I'm going to look at is pulling out my objective, and this is going to be very important, but maybe second in the hierarchy. So I'm just gonna pull that out and leave it the way it is. Next up in the section is my skills and then interest. These are a supplemental information, and I'm going to want a zoom in on these details eventually. So I'm gonna actually hold these two sections out and place them outside the frame. I'm gonna create different frames for these, so I'm pulling these off and even those alone for a minute. So let's format this text. I'm glad. Start by formatting this opening statement, the High and Megan. So it's already bold. I'm just gonna make this really big on the campus and just resize the text box looking at it. I'm also gonna experiment with possibly aligning it a little bit differently. Maybe a right online might look good. I'm also just gonna play around with re sizing and moving around my objective statement and just format things the way you think it's pleasing. You'll probably a move around and tweak it a bit throughout your presentation. So right now it's looking pretty good. The next step is to maybe at a picture of myself, and in this case, I don't really enjoy taking pictures of myself, so I haven't illustration. So I'm gonna go ahead on his Elem a keyboard for load and bring in the file Mark Megan illustration. So Now we have a nice, simple illustration of myself. Whether or not you want to include an image of yourself is up to you, but it could add a nice personal touch to your presentation. Next. I'm just going to kind of re size and move around on the different bits of content within this frame until it looks good. So this is just making little tweaks until you're happy with it. And I think that looks up pretty good. So now I'm going to start adding my sub frames for this. Instead of actually going ahead and using a frame, I'm going to use the shape. So I'm going to hit us on my keyboard and cycle through till I get to the circle. Then click, drag and draw, and I complete them. Place my circle just on the edge of the frame. So I'm going to click on the circle on and kind of adjusted a little bit more. This is the circle I made with the border, and right now it's pretty thin. So I'm gonna just make a little bit thicker so it's more apparent. There we go. I'm gonna go ahead and move my text back onto a circle and just right click on the text and bring it to front and just the box. So it's not so huge. So I'm gonna pull out the title That's mark skills and just move it away from the programs I want to highlight just kind of a range of the way you like. I'm also going to format the title a little bit differently. Make it bold. Maybe I Kallick that looks pretty good to me. Delete this colon and just resize. So here, with my skills, I actually want to visualize my proficiency is a little bit more so I'm gonna walk you through how to make a chart here, just using simple presi shapes. So I'm gonna start by drawing a line so as on your keyboard and cycle through to you get a line. I'm going to change this to a neutral black and resize the line thickness just a bit. I also need to add endpoints to this line, so I'm gonna draw two circles so as on your keyboard and cycled through until you get a circle click and drag that I need to change the color of the circle to match the line Henry size when hit duplicate to duplicate that circle and move it to the other end. Now I need one more circle to indicate my skill level with the software. So I'm going to drop you had another circle, but this time in a different color. So as I my keyboard to cycle through and I'm going to change it to this quarrel, you can make it a little bit bigger than the endpoints. And I'm going to actually put it over this black circle at the end because I'm at max capacity with familiarity of president and one other thing we need to do to make this chart makes sense is add labels. So I'm going to label one an expert and the other and familiar. So the reason I'm putting familiar as opposed to unfamiliar is because I'm not gonna put a program that I don't know on my resume. Anyway, this is just to show the level of professional see I have with the software. So I'm gonna go ahead and resize the president line just a little bit to fit a little bit better, just a just slightly and move some things around And now what I can do is happy this line and do the same thing with all the other programs. So indicating my skill level. So, for instance, with illustrator um, I know the software pretty well, but at the same time, I'm not a complete expert. I still have room to grow in that area. So I'm gonna move that down just slightly and make sure I have my other endpoints, and I'm just going to go through, make sure I do this for each one. So now I have a pretty good looking chart, and now it's time to move on to a frame that includes more images. So the next section I'm going to lay out is my interest section, and this is a great opportunity to start adding images to visualize my interests. So first off, I'm going to draw another circle Teoh House, this section. So that's on my keyboard to bring up my shape and click and drag drawn circle. Grand also increased the border thickness to match the previous frame and then click off. So if we look at my interest section, we have Harry Potter and Cats, which is two things. If you ask anyone about me will say I like and this is important for us Someone toe look at to get to know a little bit my personality. So I'm gonna start by taking out the interest to make that my title and just re sizing the bounding box a bit. I'm going toe have this title match my skills section So golden italic And another fun thing about text is if you re size it, it will automatically snap to the size of another text box somewhere in in your pussy. And at this point, I'm going to go ahead and insert some images. So, alum, a keyboard for load, and I'm gonna go into my image folder and the personal folder. This point I can grab, um, image marked Harry Potter and the image marked kitties. Go ahead and open those. I'm going to hit resize image, and that should be okay, and we'll give that a minute to process. The next step is to kind of just placement images into the circle. And let's just go over some of the image settings you have, So if you have your image selected, you have some of the same settings as other shapes and frames. You have your hands so you can click and drag that the plus and minus signs to resize. You can resize from the center by pulling out the corners. You can rotate from the corner as well, but you also have some more options, the first being you can go ahead and replace an image. If you click on this button, you can replace Ah current image you have from something else, whether it be online or from your files. You can also crop your image by clicking on crop and just dragging on the corners, but re select the image. So if I click on effects that's going toe open an A V ery window, which is just a light version of photo editing software, you can easily and quickly change brightness if you'd like. Um, you can change the sharpness and other just fun little effects. You can also add quick frames to your pictures. So what I'm going to do is just add this pistol frame, which just adds a black border on my image, and I think I'm going to use this and other images I have. I'm going to go ahead and hit, apply and then save. And in a few moments, my image will process and reflect those changes. So I'm gonna just move that around and do the same thing with my other picture. So now what I need to do is add just a little bit of clarifying text to explain what's going on in these pictures. And the picture I have is actually Harry Potter in Hungarian. And the reason for this is that every country I go to, I buy this book in that language. I'm just going to say a couple things about that, and I might format just a little bit differently to you. Add some separation between, um, statements. I'm gonna go ahead and do the same thing with the picture of my cats. All right, that looks pretty good. And I can go ahead and delete this extra text from my campus. So that's just a quick run through of inserting and manipulating images and crazy 14. Adding Your Content - Part 2: So next we're going to start talking about inserting videos in the president and the different ways you can do So So right now we're looking at the present section of my present day, and here I want to use videos to show off some of my present work because it's, ah, moving presentation software. The first thing I'm going to do is pull out the two projects I want to highlight. So mathematics of love and merging humans with computers. I'm just gonna go ahead and leave the rest of this information alone for now. So I'm gonna go ahead and, um, ad circles, just like I did in the previous section by hitting ass on my keyboard and drawing a circle and just adjusting as I see fit. So there's two ways to add videos. One is inserting a file you have on your computer. The other way is inserting from YouTube. So there's advantages and disadvantages to each. For instance, when inserting a file from YouTube, this file lives online, so it's not directly embedded into your president like it would be if you're inserting from file. But if you're presenting off line, you need to download those videos anyway. Also, a YouTube video plays him four by three, whereas an embedded video will play full screen at 16 by nine. So just kind of weigh the options and figure out what will work best for you. In this case, I'm going to insert one YouTube video and one embedded video just so you can see that when I'm done, I'll probably go back and replace the embedded video with one on YouTube just because this presentation will be living online. But I just want to be able to show you the different options. I'm going to start by inserting from file and here I'm gonna go to my video section and goes to you Mathematics of Love and insert that so usually an embedded video takes a little bit of time to process. So while that's processing, I'm going to go ahead and go to YouTube and get my other video. So and I'm going to select the my own video, and I'm just gonna copy that link and close the tab so there's two ways to insert my YouTube video. The first is to go through insert YouTube video and pasting that link into this field, But that takes just a little bit too much time for me. So I'm just gonna go ahead, close that and open a text box and paste the link directly in there, and then my video automatically shows up. So I'm just gonna place my video within the circle and added my title and the description. I'm just gonna keep this kind of simple. With the title on top and the description underneath the video, I'm just gonna zoom in on this frame and it looks pretty good. I'm gonna make another frame and start laying out the text for the other video. So assign keyboard, dry your shape and mess with border thickness, and I'm gonna lay out the tax about the same way. So now we'll just wait until that video processes and the videos done. So I'm just gonna kind of move it around and place it where it needs to be. And another thing I talked about is highlighting success stories. So there's just one more thing I want to add to this frame, and that's just a quick call out from Hannah Fry the subject of this presentation. So I'm going to go ahead and uncertain image. I'm going to go to my art folder and too crazy and the hand If I fried Twitter. I'm just going to add this tweet just to kind of highlight the success of this presentation . So now that I've inserted both types of videos, I'm gonna go ahead and just start laying out the rest of my slides the same way as I did the first. So now all that's left is for me to finish up, laying out the slides and kind of cleaning up the content, adding photos and what have you. So I'm just gonna go ahead and do that? I also want to emphasize the importance of adding personal photos to your presentation. Just toe. Give the sense of who you are to who's viewing your presentation. Just the little things, even if it's just photos from your iPhone, could be really helpful and nice and just very personal. That could also be a good opportunity to add a little bit of story to your presentation. So here I just added some personal drawings and pictures of home just to kind of allow the audience to get to know me just a little bit more. Also, make sure along the way you're finding opportunities to highlight your past work and show examples of what you created in the past. So right here, I actually forgot Teoh grab a logo. So I'm going to actually insert from Google and see if I can find it there. So I'm gonna go to insert image and I'm going to search for people sale logo. And I'm also going to add transparent PNG because if I can actually find a transparent PNG , it'll look better on the background. Sometimes it actually shows up, so we'll see what happens. Good. This one. And see if I have a winner. No, it's not transparent. Let's try this one. That one's pretty good. I don't have a background in it and that I don't have to actually search on Google for actual logo or cut it out myself. All right, so now I'm gonna zoom out on my overview, and now my content is all in place. There's just one last thing I need to do, and that's add in my contact details. So it's important to add your contact details so that people can get ahold of you. You don't have to go a Sfar us toe. Add your phone number or your address or your email address because this presentation is going to live online and you don't know where it's going to end up. But maybe adding your LinkedIn or in my case, my portfolio would be a good idea. All right, so now I'm just gonna go ahead and add my lengthen and might be hance. And now that have my contact details in place, I'm gonna go ahead and insert some symbols, so I'm gonna go to insert symbols and shapes. So we briefly talked about symbols and shapes in the navigation part of the course. But let's kind of look at some of the styles. So there's simple dark, um, simple whites and just a couple other random, different art styles. Feel free to use thes or whatever fits your aesthetic. I'm gonna go with Simple Dark and used the Lincoln logo. Just drag and drop at the campus resize way. Don't have a B Hance logo, but I think for my portfolio I'll probably just use a pencil and I'll just drag and drop that to the campus and what symbols you can rotate and resize the same way as other shapes and objects. So now we have our overview in our content in place. All that's left is to add some meaningful movement and we're done. 15. Path and Animation - Part 1: So now that we've created are open view and finish placing the content in our prez is all that's left is to add the path and any animation that we might want to enhance our presentations. So let's talk a little bit about the path and President, so over to the left hand side of the screen, we have the path sidebar. Right now there's no frames and looks path sidebar because I haven't placed any frames on my path. So let's go into edit path. Moan at a path is just one way of adding frames to your path. The way you do this is in this mode. Just click on frames that you want to add to your path, and once you have a couple frames on there, you can actually click on the plus sign and drag it to add maybe frames or path steps you want in between frames you already have on your path. If you'd like Teoh edit your path this way, you can. I actually prefer a different option, so I'm just gonna go ahead and clear all and hit done toe exit Edit Path mode, the way I like to add firms to the path is to do it manually. So I'm just gonna right click on a frame and select adds a path from the drop down menu, and I'm just going to keep doing this in the order. I want the frames to appear. So obviously I'd start with my opening statement than zoom into the two sub frames, and I'm going to go over to the Illinois frame to talk about my childhood right click at the path at that sub frame and one thing to keep in mind when adding objects in France, the path is to Onley, add shapes or frames. The reason for this is shapes and frames allow for fade an animation, whereas other objects such as images or text do not, and you always want to have that option open. So just quickly add your frames, the path and the order. You want them Teoh show and something, and I'm gonna summon up with crazy. And then finally, I'm gonna zoom out and add my overview frame so we can see where I've been in my presentation, and now I have all my main friends at its of the path. So now that we have the mainframes added to the path we're gonna going to present mode and get a preview of what that looks like and see if there's other opportunities where we might need to add more to the path. So I'm just gonna hit present to go into presentment and allow just so you don't have that box same Or and I'm just gonna kind of preview where I'm going and see if there's any opportunities for more frames. For instance, I might want to zoom out to the map of the US between San Francisco and Illinois to show a little bit of context between the two. Also kind of notice. If maybe things look a little weird have Maybe, if any other frames air and view, and one thing you might tend to notice is right now the videos aren't playing automatically , and that's something else we need. Toe get toe happen. So just taking a quick look through my presentation. There's a couple opportunities. I have to add more frames, for instance, on between moving from one town to another, maybe a zoom out to the U. S. To show the context and adding those videos to the path. So I'm going to head escape Teoh, exit present mode and go back into the editor. And what I'm first going to do is draw an invisible frame just around the U. S. So I found my keyboard cycle through two invisible frame, click and drag hold down shift to keep the correct aspect ratio. Um, I'll click on the frame. Teoh Disabled Grouping and Teoh just quickly adjust the frame and click off, and then I'm going to right click on this frame and hit adds a path and what's happening as it's getting added to the end of the path. So I'm going to simply click on that thumbnail in the path sidebar and move it up to where I needed to be so right after my interests frame and right before the cherry frame. And I'm going to do this again a couple of times just between the towns. So right click on that frame, add to pass, clicking on that some nail and dragging it. Okay, so the next thing we need to do is get the videos to play automatically, and the way to do that is to add the videos directly to the path. I know I said only to add frames and shapes. But videos are the one exception. Because by adding those straight to the path, they will play automatically and present mode. So I'm gonna go to my three videos, right click on them, hit, add to path just like I did with the frames and just move them where they need to be in the in the path. All right, let's go into present mode one more time to see you. How that looks. I'm gonna go back a little bit to the beginning and you can see that the zoom out to the U . S. Really helps to show the context between the ideas. Also, you can see now that when I get to this video, it's going to start playing automatically, which is exactly what we wanted. So I'm gonna hit, escape, to go back into edit mode. But there's still a few more things we can do to this presentation to make it stronger 16. Path and Animation - Part 2: so fade. Animation is the ability to fade in an object within a frame, and it can add a lot of storytelling value to your presentation. So let's talk about how to do that. So one of the main stories I want to tell in my present May is the fact that I moved quite a bit around the U. S before I finally made it to San Francisco. So let's start with the solid arrows. So for the 1st 1 I want to make sure I'm at the right frame between Cherry and Orlando. So I'm gonna go through, start at the childhood and just zoom out to make sure I'm there. So in order to get into the path animation mode, there's a couple ways to get there. The first is to go into Edit Path mode and double click on the star on the selected thumbnail, and this brings up the path animation window. So what I'm going to do is just simply click on the object I want to say then and you have the option to reset if you'd like. Look, for instance, I just clicked on the world map and I do not want that to happen so I can reset that. And I'm going to click back on this arrow. What will happen when you add something to your animation, as the screen star will appear on, def. You want to take that off the path? You can click on that start to delete it. I'm going to leave it the way it is and hit, done. And now that arrows going to fade in the other way, it's to leave at a path mode. Find the thumbnail again. So this time I'm going to go to the thumbnail between Orlando and Pennsylvania, right click on that frame and hit animate frame contents. So I'm just gonna do the same process again by clicking on the arrow. I want to fade in and hit done. So for the last arrow, I'm just gonna go do the same process again. I preferred doing it this way rather than going into at a path mode, because it's less clicks. So I'm gonna go find that last, um, overview frame right click on it, animate from contents and fade in that last arrow. So that's going to present mode to see what that looks like. So now if I go into present, once I get to that overview frame where we have that Errol fading on, it's going to be invisible till I get there, and it adds a little bit more storytelling to my presentation. So I'm going to head escape to go back to the editor, and one other thing I want to do is feed in this dotted line. But right now it's made up of multiple different lines. So if I go to the frame where I'd be fading that in and hit an mate from contents, what happens is it wants to animate each of those tiny little lines separately. So in order to make them all fade on at the same time, I need to group them. So I'm going to go hit, done, and I'm just going to hit, shift and dragged to select groups of these lines. At the same time. This will take me a couple tries to get them all and then I just hit group and it's ready to animate. So I'll go back to that thumbnail at number four hit animate frame contents, and now all those tiny little lines are going to fade in together now I can hit done presents. So now when I go into present mode, none of my lines are arrows. Show up until I get the point in the presentation where I want them to, which adds a nice little Beth story to my presentation. So I'm going to hit escape to go back into edit mode. But there's still a couple more things I can do to enhance this presentation even further. 17. Path and Animation - Part 3: Now I just want to get into a couple more tips and tricks for fate and animation. One thing I don't like about zooming out to this overview level is that you can see part of my logo in the frame often tends with the last frame of a presentation you don't necessarily know you can actually click to see more. So what I'm gonna do is a little trick to keep it hidden before I want to see it. So I'm gonna go ahead escape to get back into edit mode. So what I need to do is find a place to create a fade. And before I zoom out to this overview level in the end, one opportunity I see is here in the mathematics of love section where I have this call out where Hannah Fry tweets about how awesome that present WAAS. So what I'm gonna do is create a fade and here, but what I am going to do to make it easier is delete the mathematics of love frame from the path and create a hidden frame around it. So I'm gonna go into edit path mode, the lead it exit at at a path mode and draw an invisible frame around this circle. I went and just clicked and dragged it from the sidebar, but and it went a little out of order. But what I'm gonna do is find it and drag it where it needs to be. At that point, I'm going to go ahead and group the Hannah Fry call out with the text in the arrow I have there. But also I'm going to group it with my logo and title. So I'm going to zoom out and I'm going Teoh shift, click on my logo and shift click on my title, then group all those things together. So now I'm going to zoom back into that invisible frame. All click on that invisible frame, so I'm not re sizing the content inside and make this frame really big, so big that it houses everything I want to fade in. At that point, I can right click on it, hit animate frame contents and fade in everything together. Now I can click done, and this time I'm going to resize from the corners, and I'm just going to make slight adjustments until everything is centered in the frame and That's pretty good. Now when I go into present moan and go back a little bit to the overview, my logo is not shown. Once I flipped through past the mathematics of love Frame where Hannah fries tweets Beatson , um, and zoom back out. My logo is there. This is a great trick, Teoh. Cut down the amount of clicks in your presentation. Then I'm going to hit, escape, go back. And one more fun trick is to trick President to doing a fade out. In case you haven't noticed on the only animation option, we have this fade in on and sometimes that's a little bit trouble. Someone you wanna make something disappear like I might want to do with the started line. Um, especially since I ended up going to Florida and then Pennsylvania and then to San Francisco first. So to do that, what I'm going to do is actually go into present mode. So the trick is Teoh fade in something over the thing you want to fade out. Usually, in this case, it would be something the same color as the background. So I'm going to go into present mode, um, and then zoom in and take a screenshot of background. So command shift four. And I'm just gonna take a small screen shot escape to go back. And now I can go to insert from this top and grab my screenshot. So what I'm gonna do is just duplicate this PNG until I'm covering my entire dotted line. This may take a couple of P and G's toe complete. And don't worry if you're covering up something else as well. You can always bring those objects to the front later. So I'm just gonna go ahead and select all these PNG's and group them. And I'm going to go to the frame where I fade in the line from Cherry Tet, Orlando hit, animate contents and reset the animation. So what I'm first going to Dio is fade in those PNG's. They're covering up the dotted line and then fade in the arrow to Orlando. After I had done, I could go back and make tweaks to make sure the PNG isn't covering up any other frames and lines. So right click on those objects and hit bring to front. So now if we click present in going to present mode, we can see that we have a stronger story now, and we can also see if there's anything that might need a beach week or changed. So just by messing with the movements and crazy and just simple fate and animations, you can change your entire narrative and add cinematic value to your presentations, which I feel truly unique. And now that your options are open, I hope that you can find that same storytelling value and narrative in your own resumes and own work. 18.
