Applying Transitions


Lesson 6 
Transitions are motion effects that, when in Slide Show View, add movement to your slides as you advance from one slide to another. There are many transitions to choose from; each one allows you to control the speed, and even add sound.
In this lesson, you will learn how to apply and customize slide transitions.

About Transitions

You can apply different transitions to some or all of your slides to give your presentation a polished, professional look. There are three categories of unique transitions to choose from, all of which can be found on theTransitions tab:
  • Subtle (slight transitions)
    Subtle transitionsSubtle transitions
  • Exciting (strong transitions)

  • Dynamic Content (strong transitions that affect only the content, such as text or images)

To Apply a Transition:

  1. Select the slide you wish to modify.
  2. Click the Transitions tab.
  3. Locate the Transition to This Slide group. By default, None is applied to each slide.

When working with transitions, the Apply To All command in the Timing group can be used at any time to make your presentation uniform. Use this command with caution. Not only does it apply the same transition to every slide; it also applies the settings in the Timing group, which you may not want to be the same throughout your presentation.

To Preview a Transition:

You can preview the transition for a selected slide at any time, using either of these two methods:
  • Click the Preview command on the Transitions tab.

Modifying a Transition

To Modify the Duration:

  1. Select the slide that includes the transition you wish to modify.
  2. In the Duration field in the Timing group, enter the amount of time you want the transition to take. In this example, we will specify the length as 2 seconds, or 02.00.

  2. Click the Sound drop-down menu in the Timing group.
  3. You will hear the sound and see a live preview of the transition as you hover over each sound.

  3. Repeat this process for each slide you want to modify.
To remove transitions from all slides, select a slide that uses None, and click the Apply to All command.

Advancing Slides

To Advance Slides Automatically:

Normally, in Slide Show View, you would advance to the next slide by clicking your mouse (or pressing Enter on your keyboard). Using the Advance Slides settings in the Timing group, you can set your presentation to advance on its own instead, and display each slide for a specific amount of time. This is useful for unattended presentations, such as at a trade show booth.
  1. Select the slide you wish to modify.
  2. Locate the Timing group on the Transitions tab.
  3. Under Advance Slide, uncheck the box next to On Mouse Click.
  4. In the After field, enter the amount of time you want to display the slide. In this example, we will advance the slide automatically after 1 minute 30 seconds, or 01:30:00.
