Use SmartArt for Better Visual Presentations


Ever since PowerPoint 2007, SmartArt has already been available. Presenters use this when they want to convert bulleted text into a diagram to make the slide presentation more appealing and less tiring to the audience.

art-18296697What SmartArt does is basically turn the slide into a visually attractive graphic rather than a boring page full of text.

Some options that one can do to slides with a lot of text are the following:

  • Delete the text, add a useful graphic, and just speak out the text
  • Divide the slide into 2 or more slides
  • Edit the text to reduce the number of words

When these options are not enough anymore, then one can turn to SmartArt. PowerPoint showcases a lot of SmartArt configurations and layouts. You won’t run out of designs to choose from.
