1. Introduction: Jean W. Guttentag and welcome in this interesting couple of tutorials where I want to explain you a couple of things about swap analysis. Apart from telling what a SWAT analysis actually is and how it possibly can look like we'll go over how to create a design off your own. On the one hand, we will create separate slight for each part off the analysis, and then we'll also make a great slight containing older informations on one communicative slide. If you still don't have enough, I can also show you how you can drag and drop your existing slight to make a even quicker swap from the This is with the content you over give preferred previously Let's dive right in and let's start the world right away. 2. Your Assignment: Your project for this class is fairly simple. You need to export at least one off the Power point pictures. You can do this by going toe file safe as browse. And here you can save as type and select. For example, Jay Peak, I've selected Jay Peak. I hit safe and I saved all the slides here. PowerPoint does this for us automatically. Once we have the slight and old images we would like to use. You just go to the projects and resources tap and here you can add your project. If you want to download the presentation that I use, you can also download. The resource is the product itself is very simple. You only need to give it a thumbnail. I already have a family here, but I'll click on Edit Project to show you This is the time Nail. You can upload a directly here, give a title and share a few slides. You did. I hope to see what your project will be. 3. What is SWOT: at first taking a very brief look. Walt, a SWAT analysis actually is well. The explanation is very simple. It stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. If you take a look at the first through being strengths and weaknesses there, the internal factors here, while the other two like opportunities and threats, are considered to be external in general. At SWAT, analysis mostly applies to business, business ventures, business plans and stuff like that. But since we have those internal and external factors, it can really apply to anything influenced by those things. While it could be applied to people, too, plans and through other tanks, the simplest way to present a SWAT analysis isn't a two by two. Great. While on the top it can, of course, be different. But generally on top, we have S and W. And on the bottom we have OMT, which are the opportunities and threats because the 1st 2 are the internal and the second to are the external. Also, if you look at the left side, the strengths and opportunities tend to be the positive influences, while on the right side we have the negative things that influence our business plan as I said, our anything we apply this analysis to and this would be an explanation off the SWAT analysis. I don't want to be a smart us here off course. I took informations from one of the first websites I found, and those explanations were very nicely written, for example, on life plan or on our beloved Wikipedia. Even here we have a very simple sort analysis slight, and I think this is a pretty good design for the sake of. Those electors will make a template like that a tiny bit more advanced in terms off a design template, then just a normal, classic grit. And I hope you'll have plenty of fine designing this with me. So let's go to the next lecture. 4. Designing the Core: hello and welcome. In this interesting tutorial, Noto build a SWAT analysis. We can either do for separate slight and have each letter or each segment on a separate slide or make one slight together with a great I'll show you how to make those separate slides in order, like to make the most out off it. So let's start with how I do a background like that. It's a very straightforward. You'll delete everything to have a very clean slide. In order to build a slight, we will need a high quality picture, and I'm using an splash dot com. But of course you can use a different website. I kind of felt like toe right light because somehow I wanted to make this light like dynamic and quick and analytical. So I typed in light and I tried toe. Yeah, as you see previously, I used this one. But since I already used this one, let's go for something slightly different. Okay, this seems fine. I can right click copy graphic, and I can go back to Power point and simply paste it in. Okay, I'll move it like that. I'll enlarge the image, and as you can see it goes above the slide. That's no problem. By having their picture selected, you go to Petra, form it crop and you crop it down to the appropriate size, right? If you want, you can still like a move the image to make their lights more in the middle crop, and this would be basically our background. Now, in order to build on the background, I went to insert shapes and I'll insert a very normal shape on top off this entire design. This will be our overly. You probably know that I do overlays very often because they simply are effective and work perfectly for those purposes. Schaffel. This time we are going for a clean white look shape old line off course. Let's select no online so we don't have this ugly blue outline around here. Now, having this white selected we can right click, we can click on former shape in the form of shape. Options will open on the right side, having the former shape options opened. We can adjust the transparency and since this is a very strong photograph, very saturated, I own the transparency to be like a very low amount, like 5%. Remember that if the photograph is like too annoying for you and has too much color, you can always select the photograph, go to picture former call or and you could like lower down the toll and the saturation off this image. So that's a quick and convenient way. Like to get rid off the the situation, the intensity of the color. If I if I wanted to do that, I would use the saturation, for example, at 66%. But for now, I think this is pretty OK, so let's stay that way. Let's make a complete overlay and we have the ground work prepared. The last step in this lecture. I want to prepare for the let's work in order to prepare the letter. You want to go to insert textbooks this time? You want to press s with my shift key because I wanted a uppercase s. When it comes to this size, I can easily go for 500 I can even make this bolt. No, depending on what form do you want to select? You want to go and select something big and bulky? Well, you will have different funds than I have, But I believe I used Monserrat here. Concert works really well because it has those black and extra bold versions off themselves and semi bold. Yeah, let's use extra B extra bold it is. And maybe to make it look a bit different than the previous one. I will enlarge this even more, so I'll make this 860. Okay, I've overdone it. 720. Okay, it goes a little bit outside this light, and that's beautiful. Now I'll be able to cut out this letter out off the background just for the sake off having this letter. If I still needed, I'll duplicate us with control deep. Now, in order to cut this letter out off this object, I will select this white overly. I'll press my shift key and big my s letter. Hopefully I selected. Okay. The s letter is selected shape former merch shapes and subtract. All right, this will be our first step. And I hope you are able to follow the same way. Use a picture making overly and cut out a letter out off it. We'll see each other in the next lecture when we'll do for inter steps like to improve the design and to make something more complete of it 5. Finishing the S: making those additional elements was basically just adding text boxes. But before I did that, I thought off a color that could complement the right side off the off this object. Now the letter as is a little bit in the way, let's make the letter smaller because it's a bit in the way. So in order to create those objects here I went toe insert shapes and I inserted actually two rectangles because I just wanted them to be on the other side of the picture. Like to give some weight counter right and too close the entire design. And when it comes to the color, we have a couple of possibilities here, for example, selecting a color that already is in the photograph. We could go for a purple for a blue for a orange, maybe a purple this time and giving it a slight transparency. We'll see how that fits this design off course. We need to select shape, old line and pick no old life. So far, so good. I think this looks pretty OK since we used one front here to create the letter. It's a good idea to control D. Of course, it needs to be much, much smaller. It's a good idea to use the same fund for some titles here. Now what comes to your mind? Does this black color work with this light? I believe it doesn't work perfectly. So again we can use colors we have in this picture. And that's a very convenient way. Like to work without color schemes and still being consistent. I'll select something dark, but it doesn't have to be black. It has to be like, almost put one off the blues from this picture. I know it doesn't seem like much right now, but it gives it that slight difference. A slight edge, all right from the slight. As you can see, I've just used textbooks, is in some takes. There's no point of me adding additional text boxes and showing you how to do this because you are perfectly capable toe at those few textbooks as yourself. But what I did what's interesting like toe make the design a bit more complete. I used those two objects I went to do the firm. It shape options to the second row, where we have the effect from the effects. I have selected a shadow At first I used a simple preset like like the first preset. But what I actually wanted to achieve, I want to give it some distance and some additional blur. Maybe make the transparency less depending on how strong you would like this shadow to be visible. And as you can see, this creates a very original and new, fresh and nice effect and makes the slight to be a little bit more to grow a little bit. See, it's something similar here. Are you really rather strong, rather strong shadow here. The shadow appears to be even stronger. You can, of course, still adjust the shadow options. So let me show you how this light would look like. This will be our first s slight ready that one less adjustment I want to show you. And it's also a neat trick. You remember We had, like, 7 20 here so late. Let's make 7 10 just for example. And because I saved this letter s maybe we give it not a shape old line, but in the shape for more. On the right side, we have text, text field, no Phil text outline. However, let's make the outline purple just as those purple objects and you can see we have no this purple s shape. And it's a clever way off adding something to the slight. Let's make it 7 20 Just like the original Kuttel object. That's a very orginal way to add something to the slight. I'm just like using my arrow keys to move it a little bit around and look at this light. Oh, too strong. Remember that on the former shape options, you can goto text options because this is the letter as this is a text and we can also give it some transparency. If this appears too strong for you, are like looks annoying to the design change. The wit changed the transparency. You can do whatever you want with it. In my opinion, this is a nice little addition. Maybe it's a bit too much here, but you get the idea by having the s we cut out somewhere on the side. We can always revert back to it and at something of value to the design. This is how I created the first slight off the SWAT analysis. Basically, you would approach the other three slides the same way like this one. Now it's your turn. I hope you will follow all the steps and create a slight like that off your own. 6. Making a 2x2 Grid Slide: okay. Our initial analysis would be done like that. But what if someone asks? It has to be on one slide. It has to be agreed. I will duplicate it just to leave. This is a template for me. And this would be simple. Just do a great depending on how we wanted. You can do letters here or letters in the middle, but I'll maybe make them in the corners. S W O T. And let's see how that looks. Okay, we have the letters and you would approach this this literacy behind. So I'll bring it to front So I can see this. You would go about this the same way you would select this background your shift and select each off the letters, having letters, selected shape, former merge shapes, and again I would simply subtract them and prepare it like that. Even have overlays. I can decide if I want them or not, but it takes just a few seconds to, like bring them in. So no problem. I think this is behind again. Bring to front. I don't know this letter t makes some trouble s w O t. And we have the same template the same design, just with difference. Different style. If this still isn't enough and you knitted of divider like in the middle. And here don't worry about this. Just take a rectangle. Make maybe a rounded rectangle like that Give it some roundness, make it a tiny bit smaller. I will duplicate it with control D and make it again smaller. This would be a perfect, like making this Agreed. Maybe this shouldn't go outside of the slide. I think this will make a cool design if we make it like that so it won't go outside of the slide. All right. Again, the same principles apply. You select the background. You said this object, this object Mered shapes and you subtract. Um, maybe this would be a bit too much color, but you can give another overlay over the picture. You can use it like that now, I would just take appropriate point and I would paste them here off course control G. I would need to make everything a little bit smaller or or I would need to get rid off those points. Sorry. Off those objects, Maybe make the text like smaller. You would need to adjust everything. It wouldn't be a big trouble toe. Make a SWAT analysis like that and this is how you approach boat versions of the slight control de from the ws. Quite big. So you would need to make a couple of adjustments there, either make the w smaller or just make the tax smaller. I'll go for the text, your recourse. We already prepared it like that. So let's stick to it. You can see we have two variations of a SWAT analysis. We have boasted flights, and the best preview and power point is, if used a slight sorter. Now, let me see that in the slide sorter. Um, S W O T. I do prefer those bigger slides because they tend to give me a bit more designers freedom. And also they are nicer for the viewer for the preview. And remember, if you have the newest version of Power Point, there are a couple older tricks you can do. You can do that. Use the zoom feature. It's only on the newest versions of PowerPoint, but the zoom feature would basically allow you to make a SWAT analysis light just by dragging and dropping those six existing slights over this would be another, like, cool way to showcase this light. You could go toe one slight shift left and could go back. You could go to the next light and you could go back. And this would be a very nice, another way off making sort analysis. But that's only for the newest powerful inversions which have the zoom feature. I believe it was introduced into the oven. 16 with 2019 and old yours versions will half that feature. This is exactly what I wanted to teach. You hear two versions off a SWAT analysis, a regular one and a gridded one. I hope both off them are very interesting to you. And you've learned a lot of new PowerPoint tricks, stuff and other things. Thank you very much for listening. It was my pleasure to record of tutorials. I've enjoyed this design, even enjoy this picture quite more than I thought. That's really convenient. And that's something you want to cut corners on. And that's completely fine. Thank you once again and see you in all their tutorials like that 7. Make a Template to re-use: If, in any case you want to set up a template for yourself, you definitely have to duplicate a slight. Be for you. Cut out the letter. In my case, I've just created a template by applying the photograph. Applying this overly ain't having it like that. This is a very beneficial, especially because we have the letters at hand to use. If you have a slight like that, it definitely doesn't have to be a SWAT analysis. You can. For example, press two, if you like, would have some point make the points here. You could call it a point to or any anything you want to call it, and you can make quick adjustments and changes to this template. This is very convenient. In case you need anything you express control de to duplicate this light and you're ready to work and create more out off this. I want to give a big thanks for listening to those couple of tutorials and lectures, and I hope you've learned a lot of new PowerPoint stuff
