How to Create Graphics and Illustrations Using PowerPoint

Microsoft PowerPoint
Are you tired of spending hours creating artwork and design elements for your projects? 

Here's a Cool Tip: Look no further than Microsoft PowerPoint! 

This versatile tool is not just for presentations - it can also be used to create artwork and designs in just a few simple steps. 

This can save you the cost and complexity of buying more complicated and expensive software.

Here's how to use PowerPoint as a simple solution for creating artwork, text and design elements for normal computer users.

  • Open PowerPoint.
  • Select a blank slide.
  • Click on the Insert tab and select Shapes to add shapes to your slide.
  • You can also add text by clicking on the Insert tab and selecting Text Box.
  • To add images or pictures, click on the Insert tab and select Pictures.
  • Right-mouse click any object to Format.  Change the color of lines and fill.  Change the size and pattern for any line or object.
  • As you can see in fig. 1 below,  a snip of an Excel sheet was brought into PowerPoint, red boxes drawn around key areas, and a large red arrow was added.  Then this image was snipped, saved and then brought into a final document.
  • You can also use PowerPoint's built-in design templates to create professional-looking designs for your artwork.

  • Use the Windows Snipping Tool (shortcut is Shift+Windows+S keyboard shortcut) to select your new artwork.  Save the image for future use as well.
  • You can also save the PowerPoint deck for future use if you need to modify the image.
