Or like or I can choose on the these categories so I can choose from formal, inspirational, creative, simple start up, elegant, playful and business. And as soon as I click on any of these categories, So, for instance, I'm going to click on business. You can see that I got presentations that are well sitting within this category and you can see that we got some more information and on the on a particular particular presentation template. And we got to this like a preview preview box here on the left, which allows you to take a quick look at how this presentation is going to look like Teoh. Kind like familiarize yourself with the overall mood off this off this presentation template. So as soon as I just click on any of these presentations, let's say I'm going to click on this presentation. You can see that I got this like a sub page for this particular presentation. And in here, not only do I have like some more details on this particular presentation, I can also preview it in this in this box. And this uses Google slides, and what we can do here is, of course, we can simply play this whole presentation just like so. Or we can simply just so browse through all these and of the slides by clicking on this right arrow just like so or this left arrow to to go back one step. And I can always just to play this presentations in a full screen, just like so. Okay, so let's say that I like this presentation that I just took a closer look and I think that this presentation will work best for my for my purposes. So what I can do right now is they can simply click this use this presentation template button, but note that in order to make this or will to add it this presentation Later on, we will need to be signed in to our Google account. I mean, you need to be signed into your role, preferably Gmail. In order to added this presentation, if you're not, you'll only be able to visit. To view this this presentation, you will not be able to edit it. You can, however, downloaded to edit it in a power point. But for now, we're just going to use Google slides as the promise of this glasses through is only free. Resource is so I'm going to sign it into my Google account, and I'm going to use this presentation presentation template so you can see how you can actually use it for your purposes. Okay, so I have signed in into my Google account. So now what I'm gonna do is I'm going to simply click this use this presentation template bottom, just like so. I'm gonna wait for this presentation to load, and there's an important thing we need Teoh understand about how to work with this presentation at this point. Well, all we need to do is we need to make a copy out of this out of this presentation because we won't be able to add it. It just just as it is her right now you can see that I'm trying to click on this tax right here. And actually I cannot I cannot We'll edit it. It's kind of like a precaution. Like a safety measure. So what we need to do in order to to make this presentation Aditya Vel we need to go to the file menu and then choose make a copy and what you will be asked to do is you'll be asked Well, first to give the name of your presentation and what I would suggest is to leave the original name because what we are going to do now is we are going to, like, create a folder for ourselves where we are going to keep our presentations so we don't have to go back to to the Slights Carnival website over and over again to choose the presentation. So what I would suggest you dio is you select your your folder on your Google drive, so I'm gonna go to folder mind Dr I'm just going to click on it and in here at at adviser to either choose or create a folder where you would keep your presentations so I would simply click new folder. And I'm going to name it Uh, my presentations, but maybe my presentations, not an presentations, just like so I'm going to click this, but this button right here and I'm simply going to hit select, just like so And as soon as I click OK, you can see that now we have our presentation, and right now it is fully fully auditable weaken, do whatever we want with it. We got all these options right here that we didn't have here in this in this well version of our presentation. So now we can truly added our our presentation. However, before doing that, what I will again advise you to do is to save it one more time. Because remember that we are actually we are working. And on our presentation, that is like the original with copied original of representation. So if you're working on a specific specific will project or a problem, what I would advise you to do is to go again to the file menu and that again click make a copy. But this time I would name it. Well, I'm gonna name it. Ah, project name. So you would give it a your specific thing. If we're working like well, on a specific project, I'd advise you to give it a specific project name. And again, I would go to the folder where I keep my presentations. But this time I would go one step back and I would again creating your folder. And this time I would call it Project name. And of course, you would give it to your your specific name for your project. I'm gonna go ahead and click Project name. I'm gonna hit, select and hit. OK? And I'm going to open this presentation one more time and you can see that right now I am. Well, I have the exact copy of my my presentation right here. But right now I am working on this like a copy off my off my original presentation. So right now I have a folder where I'm going to keep my my well, templates, my presentation templates. And I also have a another window right here with another. The presentation on I'm going toe work working on this presentation. I like it was a specific presentation for a specific project. So we got original original presentation right here on a specific presentation for this specific project. So just to repeat this, this process and to maybe, like, make it a bit more clear why we are doing all this. I'm gonna go to the Slights carnival website once more. And this time I'm gonna maybe choose creative. Why not? And I'm gonna go Maybe with this jacquimo prison tasting templates, I'm going to click on it that I'm simply going to click this used this presentation time, play bottom and what we have to do right now, remember, is we need to go to file, make a copy, and I'm gonna choose my folder with my presentations. I'm gonna go to my drive, and I'm gonna find my presentations right here. And I'm gonna name it. Of course, properly. If you want, you can You can give it some more descriptive name. Like like creative template jacquimo or something like that. So let me just go once more my presentations and I'm gonna hit a select and then I'm gonna hit, OK? And this time I'm gonna have if I go to my Google Drive folder and I'm gonna go to there in just a second. You will see that I'm gonna have two presentations comp it into my Google drive folder. So let me just go to my drive folder Really quick. So here I am on my Google drive folder and you can see that I got this. My presentations folder right here. And as soon as I entered this folder, you consider I got my two presentations ready for me to be used. I don't have this specific project. Name a presentation right here. However, I do have my initial presentation, RV, our view, our guns or something like that. And I got this jacquimo jacket representation. So this hood, this way of work and will allow you to copy those temples from the Slides Carnival website into your own Google Drive folder, and from here you'll be able Teoh to use them for your presentation presentation needs. So I'm simply going to close this folder, and now I'm going to go to I'm going to go to this project named Presentation. And now we can actually learn how to use this presentation and kind of explore what we have inside this presentation. But we are going to do that in the next video 3. 2 How To Edit The Presentation You Chose: What's great about these templates is that the dummy tax they provide is lovely, the dummy. I mean, it gives you not only information on how to use the presentation, but also how to design presentations themselves. So let me show you what I mean. When we click through these slides here on the left, we're going to see that we got We got instructions for use. Should you should you need those. And if we click through all these slides, you can see that we got, like, some pieces on information that we can use when you want creating your own presentations. So we got something for mentioning quotations we got. We got some information on the slide, and I think that it's pretty clever to include them. There's dummy tax that you can replace with your own tax, but also to make it come like informative. So you can you can learn about some more about. I like the idea off designing presentations because I know that well, it can be quite tricky. Toe learn and, well, a lot of presentations. How there are not looking too nice that is have created this glass so you can interrogate your PowerPoint presentations in a professional and beautiful way without without the need of learning all the design stuff. So when you go through all these slides, you can see that we got different. Different slides will different kinds of slides we get like a title slides or introduction slides. Transition. Transition is light. We got quotations. We got Alec. Big concepts right here. We got information is divine information divided into columns like two column columns, Three columns. We got some some slice with images. We got some big, big images. We got some. We got some charts. We got diagrams. We got tables, basically everything you need to create really, really nicely looking, nicely looking presentations. Okay, so let's start. Let's start at it in our template, and I'm going to start with that with the title slide this guy right here. So let's start at it in our presentation. Would this would this a title titles light. Now all we need to do is into simply position our mouse course or somewhere over over the tax and simply click, and we can use a little a little trick right here. So if I just click on one on one word and then just double click over it or on it you consider I'm highlighting this whole word like this some double clicking to highlight the whole world. And if I triple click, you can see that I am and that I am selecting the whole paragraph. So double click to select a word triple click to select a paragraph. And right now, what I could do is I could simply type in my Maybe I'm gonna I'm gonna create all capitals , my presentation, my prison, Tayshaun, um, title just like so. But as you can see, we lost this this middle middle of word collar. So what we could do in this case, let me just go back a few steps. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to change the text in here gradually. So first, I'm going to select this tax to this is your and as soon as it's mine, I'm going to call it my just like so and this that I'm going to double click on the presentation next, and I'm going to call. I'm gonna type in my Peron, jack my projects, and I'm gonna press enter and I'm gonna type in a name just like so. So I retained the colors of my of my well specific words And we can do right now is you can simply maybe positional cursor right here and press enter Teoh also retain the three lines that were used in that in the original in the original text. 4. 3 How To Edit The Text In Your Presentation: now what's great about this this time, but or all all these templates, actually, is that to You really don't need to bother about changing and the colors or or maybe the phone size. But if you want to hear how you can do it, you can simply select maybe all of these all of these words. And we can simply go up here to this to this control panel and we can change the phone size right here So we could simply click on this bottom right here to choose one of the pre defined font sizes. So I'm gonna go and be with 48 this time, and we can also simply type in something like maybe 42 just like so. But as you can see, well, sometimes we're going to encounter problems like me. Like in this case, this thing image orders I can is actually well, like blocking our view, or it's simply too close to the tax. So these presentations are made will professionally and the good design wise from the ground up. So all we really need to do is is to enter your taxed your own information, But if you want to This is if you want to change like the phone site. This is how you can do it so we can simply select the tax and change the phone size right here. So I'm gonna go back to 36 as it was as it was before. There is one more thing that you might want to do in when working with added in these templates. And that thing is called aligning. So when I just go, maybe to this quotations, quotations light or we can do is we can simply click on this piece of text. And as you can see, we got this whole tax frame around it, just like so. So now we can again go to this align options, and in here we can choose between top middle and bottom alignment options. So if I just click on the middle option right here, you can see that in position in my my quotations. Well, my quote exactly in the middle of this text frame. But if you want to be sure, I mean well, usually you won't need to even even a line of these elements, just just as we did a second ago. But it's for those who need some more, some more like manual adjustments than who need more more freedom. So if you want to be sure that your tax that this piece of taxes exactly in the middle of your slide well we can't do is we can simply Breer bring this guy up just like so and then bring it down. So we know that our text friend is exactly the same size as our slide. And if we now go to the alignment options and click middle, we can be sure that our that our quotation is exactly in the middle of our slide. But as I said, it's only for those who need some more. Some more manual freedom. Let's go like that. Usually you won't need to even even adjust. Adjust that. And if you need to do lift a certain slight like most likely you're going Teoh, they're going to be deleting this Instructions for use slide or we need to do is to select it right, click on it or command click if you're on a Mac and simply hit, delete slide, just like so and now you can see that and creating a specific presentation for a specific project is essential because right now we're not affecting now. The the original template were affecting only the copy off that template that is sitting specifically in our in our projects folder. And if you want Teoh maybe like a duplicate is like us, let's say that you want to have, like, two quotes. Well, one after another, all we need to do is to click on a slide, right click on it and then just click duplicate duplicates light, just like so. And they really do encourage it to browse through these slight. I mean, we got bullet points right here, and we really don't need to do well, much more with it. We just need to enter our taxed right here. You know, if you need another bullet points, simply just position your cursor right here at the end of this world. Click enter and you will get another bullet point right here. And if you need some other some some other elements like this big concept element, you can simply type in your big concept right here. And you don't really need to change anything off course. If you have some more text, you can always maybe make this text frame bigger. Or maybe megaphone smaller. But usually these things presentation templates will will do just fine just the way they are. Okay, so now that we know how to how to add it to the text inside our presentation, we're going Teoh. Well, in the next video, we're going to make some more drastic changes to our to our presentation, and we're going to make it a bit more personal at the same time. And we're going to play around with images, so stay tuned. 5. 4 How To Add Images Without Hours Spent On Searching The Whole Web: Let's now take a look at Adam images to our presentations and with images we got to basically two options. We can either add an image or replace an image. So let's say that our big concept nickname needs a like a visual representation. That means a big image. So all we need to do is we need to simply go to the insert menu and choose image. And of course, we can simply choose an image to upload from our computer. But I would just wanted to bring your attention to this search option right here. So let's say that you are at the same time on a tight budget. You're on a tight schedule and you don't have anything, anything set up. Of course you got this presentation, but you don't have any graphic graphic elements, No images. So all we need to do is going to go to this search option right here at what is great about this option is that it's searches for all free images to use, and it's browses well. It's such a surge in sites that you will usually would have to go to like individually, and I guess you might have seen some some courses or classes advising you to go different, different websites. And and that's really great. But you can have it all in just ah, in this thing, this humble window, actually. So let that's, let's say that I need some, like, images off water. So I'm gonna type in water, just like so I'm gonna click this. Um this searcher will button right here, and you can see that I got images off water being displayed in this preview window. Now, what's great about this is that these thes images are all well presented and they are uploaded to the Internet under the Creative Commons license, so you can use them freely with just a single attribution. So what's also great about this is that I can move like it can change the mood off these images by clicking on these on these colorful squares right here. So if I just choose, this may be a little square. I'm going to get different results related to water but that our name in the yellow mood Let's go, Let's go it like that. So if my presentation waas as far as I remember, well, this slide was kind of like a red. Like this big concept is Well, it's kind of red. I'm gonna click on this red button right here. I'm gonna I'm gonna look for something. Will some water, that is. Look for some red water. Let's say that I am that I like. I don't know. Maybe this image, why not? And as soon as I click on it, you can see that you can see and then the hyperlink on the link to the site where this images is kept. So in this case, is is well, it's the cycle pixel by that come. And one of the sites quite often mentioned as a source of free free stock images. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to simply click on this on this well image. And I'm just gonna hit select, just like so. And just after a second, you can see that I got this image I will inserted inside my slide. And if I want to? Well, in this case, I really do need to change its size. All I need to do is to grab it, grab it by its by its corner and simply bring it Bring down as you can see by default, it's a proportionate and proportionate is skating, so I don't need to use in any shortcuts or press anything else rather than just click on the corner and bring this guy down to somewhere here. And if I want to move it, I can move it to somewhere here because let's say that I do. I do want to keep this image right here. However, as I sent these presentations with the way they look where they are, they are professional and they look like that for a reason. So what I would advise you to do is to if you don't need to place an image, just replace intimate. But replacing images inside these presentations can get sometimes a little tricky. So there's one thing that you need to pay attention to. Sometimes you won't be able to simply click on an image and or right click on an image and choose replace an image. Sometimes all you will be allowed to do is to change the background because some images are placed as backgrounds with some effects over them. So, like in the case of this presentation, what we can do in order to change this image is we can simply right click on it and go ahead and choose change background. And in this case, I'm gonna go with the image and choose this guy right here. And we can find maybe some other some other representation off they an office, just like so. And maybe I'm gonna choose maybe this image right here that I'm simply going to click select, and then I'm gonna click done is gonna is gonna work its magic. And as you can see, we gotta an image, an image, basit and just like so. So again, I'm gonna go ahead and choose change, background, choose. Maybe this time I'm going to look for something else, like maybe trees, just like so. And maybe I'll choose this image right here. Click, select and done. And there we go. We got an image, an image based in just like so. However, just like in the case of this other presentation, we can simply change will replace an image. And all we need to do is to simply select an image, right click on it and choose replace image. And again, I'm gonna go to this search option and I'm gonna find maybe another picture of a woman. So I'm gonna type in woman just like so And I'm gonna based Ah, maybe this image in right Not I'm gonna click, select and just have to review a few seconds. And the image is going to be not only replaced, but also you can see that as being the fit inside this will something that is called the clipping mass. So in this case, it's been ripping. It was being placed inside this this circle. So all we really need to do is to simply right click on it shows replace image. And if you have a picture of your own of course you can. You can upload it here. And if you don't, you can simply search for one inside this this Google search repository in the next video, I would like to show show any one more. One more thing. I mean, if I just look for an image of a woman again, just like so you can see that every time I click on an image, I got this little link being displayed right here in the bottom, and it simply shows shows me the link to this actual image on this actual website. And if I don't like all these images, but I would like to search for myself or look for maybe some some other pictures inside that particular website, this a free stalker images website. What I can do simply as I can to simply select an image and simply click on this this link right here to be directed to that particular particular website. But what I would like to share with you is not how to like, click an image and downloaded and uploaded again. I want to show you a quicker, more efficient and maybe a bit more professional will. Definitely quicker, quicker way. But we are going to learn that way in the next video. 6. 5 How To Add Images In AMatter Of A Two clicks: Okay, So just as a repetition, let's say that I am looking for an image of a woman. I found this image right here, but I want to I want to check this website, this Free stock image website to see what other images and of a woman. This website actually has some gonna click on this on this link right here, and I'm gonna Well, as you can see is being already populated toe the key war that we're looking for. And let's say maybe that I like this image. Why not now? What we could do right here is of course, we could click on free download and then upload the image and then wait for it to upload and download and so on and so on. But what I like Teoh. I like to show you a quicker way. Now what we really can't dio right here is we can simply right click on this image, and we can simply choose this option right here. It says copy, image, location and what it does. It's simply retrieves the web address off this particular particular image. So as soon as I click on it and then I'm going to go back to my my presentation. Let me just go back to this presentation, and what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go to this by U R L option right here. And if I just based them Well, I simply click control V on my keyboard. You can see that I am pacing in that particular in particular and the link to this particular particular image. So let me just go back again to this. Packs a list website, and I'm going to choose another photo. That's that's the photo that we said that we just saw. Maybe I'm gonna choose. Let's see. Maybe this image this is this is a beautiful photo. So I get I'm going to right Click on it and I'm gonna click. Copy, Copy, image location, not the link location. Copy, image, location. Go back to my website. And again based that paint What I what I just copied inside Enough. I just click select. The image is going to be pasted in, and everything is looking beautifully. So this is how you can do it inside Firefox? Because I'm on Firefox right now. So if you are on any other on any other browser. I'm going to show you how to how to do that by doing it inside inside. Well, I guess one of the most popular Web browsers and which is which is Ah, Google Chrome. So we're gonna do that in just a second, Okay, so here we are inside Google Chrome and what we could do, we could simply copy address of this image again. But just to show you that this trick is actually working, I'm gonna choose another it match. Maybe this this image right here, it's a It's a beautiful image as well in the side. Chrome. Well, really. And what we need to do is it was pretty much the same. I mean, all we need to do is to simply right click on an image, and I'm gonna I'm gonna just choose copy image address inside Firefox. It was couple image location. And in here, I'm just going to copy the image address, and I'm gonna click on it, and I'm gonna go back to my presentation again. I'm going to right click on this on this image chose replace image and in the by u R L. A search box or well, box. I'm gonna based what I have carpet into my clipboard. And as you can see, it's this image right here. And I'm simply going to click, select and wait just a few seconds for for everything. Toe work and upload. And there we go. We got the image based in So this how easily you can replace images inside these presentations. Just remember that sometimes you're gonna have to You're gonna have to change the background as with this presentation, and sometimes you're going to be able to simply right click on an image and choose replace , replace image. So in the next video, we're going to take a look at adding some other graphic elements into our presentations, and we're going to learn how to add icons to our presentations. So stay tuned. 7. 6 How To Add Icons To Your Presentation: What's great about these presentations is that they come with with a variety of graphic, ready to go elements.

So if you're interested in that, let's move on to the next video. 11. 10 How To Find Perfect Colors For Your Presentation proper: the last free resource that we're going to use to make our presentations look beautiful. Is the side called coolers dot CO. And it basically is a color palette generator and also a repository for ready made to color palettes. So the way to use it is to simply click that gets started bottom just like so and the way it works. Let me just close it. I'm gonna tell you how it works. We don't need towards to the editorial. And the way it works is you get different color palettes right here. So let's say that you need to your presentation to be well, you need to theme to be like a dark theme. So you would you would use some, like dark backgrounds, dark elements. But as a contrast, you would need some something like a white, um, that white collar that you would use for your fund to choice. So let's say that you would like to have your font color this this well, this off white color. And you would like your background to be this. Maybe this kind like dark, really dark purple color. So all we need to do is we need to click this padlock icon right here and this bad look like and right here and simply press the space bar in order to change all their remaining colors. And you can always be sure that what they will always match your two primary your true primary colors. Off course, you can simply look one color, or you can look four colors and change only one color. But for now, let's just press the space bar just a few more times so you can see how it easy it is to generate a color palette that will always there will always have the colors that go work well together. So let's say that for this color palette, I like this off white. I like this dark color, and I was like, this green color. So I'm going to look. But I don't like these two colors, some simply going to press the space bar again. And I'm going to find some other colors, just like so maybe I'm Maybe let's say that I like this one, and maybe I'm just gonna press the space bar one more time and lock it. And there you go. We got the color palette color palette created. So all we did is we chose our two primary colors. Of course, we could only start with with one color, and then we just looked them and we and we by pressing the space. But we found other colors that would go well with our with our foil first chosen chosen colors. So a rule of thumb here. If you are looking for a dark A theme, you want to create a dark theme with your presentation. Always look for a least one contrast in colors, maybe like white or off white, that you would use their for your for found color and vice versa if you wanna. If you want to create like a line theme now, you would want to find a dark at least wound dark color, or at least very contrast in color that would that you would use for your for your funds.

Explore bottom and you will find different color palettes already made by by users, and you can simply click this next arrow to find a dim well to get more, even more power color palettes just like that. And as I mentioned before, the rule of thumb here is to try to find a T least one color within a color palette that is going to be really contrast in. So it's gonna be, like, really dark, like in this case or really light, like in this case. And if you like, let's say this color palette, you can simply click view, just like so, and the program will generate all these colors for you. So how can we use these colors inside our presentations? Well, you can see here in the bottom, we gap. This funky little tax write huge is called the Hex hex code, and it's actually a coat that is talent on the monitor, which color it should display. So if we just selected and copy it and then go to a present presentation and let's say that I want to change this this background right color right here, I'm simply going to right click on it and choose change background. It's just like we did with the change in a change in the image, and if I just selected this collar right here and choose custom. You can see that I can. Based in that hacks code that I just copied from that website searches press control V. I'm simply gonna hit. Okay, kid. Done. And you can see that I got this collar color copied just like so. Of course I could do the same with this. This number one right here. So I'm gonna simply select it. Go to text color again. Shoes custom and bays. That hex code just once more hit. OK, and now this this text, this whole number one color is imagining this background right here. 12. 11 How To Change The Slide Layout In 3 Seconds: before we color today, there is one more, little more little trick that I would like to show you when working with these presentations.
