By Daren Garius

On Friday, July 18, 2014

Together with other applications that are included in the Microsoft Office 2013, Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 comes out with a newly redesigned page that is useful to all PowerPoint users. This version of Microsoft PowerPoint has defaults in creating presentations that can fill your wide-screen monitors, and some web-based presentations are easier to organize than ever. The new look of this PowerPoint 2013 is very similar to the other Microsoft office apps. As we expected, the support for using touch navigation has been already introduced. But this application is not all about touch and look though, Microsoft PowerPoint has numerous improvements and new features included, too. The most useful feature of this application is the New Presenter Viewer. This feature helps to set the presentations into dramatic changes. It is clear that the only reason of Microsoft in updating PowerPoint is to make all presenters life easier and give them a chance to look good in front of all viewers.

Pros

  • You can create a design that fits with modern widescreen
  • Presentation view is more improved than the previous version

Cons

Microsoft Powerpoint 2013: Many new features and greater creative freedom

By Gfx Syne

On Thursday, January 7, 2016

Having upgraded from Microsoft Powerpoint 2007 I have noticed many changes and improvements in the new version. Apart from the new interface the presentation tool has added many design features that grant a greater flexibility in designing and customizing a presentation. While the previous versions did not provide as many features, the 2013 version of Powerpoint allows many editing tools within the program to crop an image, add effects such as borders, reflection, vignettes, etc. Users can also pick a custom color scheme after they have chosen a design for their presentation. Most importantly, there’s the color pickers to choose the exact same color code as it appears in the slide so that other elements such as the font of the text can be colored the same. Users can create diagrams and charts from within the program, add clip arts, edit images to add effects, and do so much more.

Pros

  • • New and improved interface with design options.
  • • Ability to edit images within the program

Cons

  • • Some tools may be difficult to find

Review

Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 is presentation software that belongs to the popular Microsoft Office productivity suite. Along with the cloud services integration and support for touch-enabled devices included in all the programs, other novelties of this version we can tell you about include the enhancement of presentation set-up and projection views, the widened variety of shapes, themes and transitions, and improved zoom functionality.

We can say there has been substantial enhancement of presentations set-up and projection views, a widened variety of shapes, themes and transitions, and improved zoom functionality

Some of the most appreciated features of this Office software have been the Presenter View and the Present Online option. The Presenter view allows you to also see your presentation notes, while the audience only sees the slide, multiple monitors are no longer required. This mode includes several behind-the-scenes tools and an automatic set up. Present Online appears as the equivalent of Broadcast Slide Show, with the added option of letting people download your presentation. Note than if you enable this feature, they will be free to navigate through the presentation at their own pace while you are presenting!

There is a great variety of templates: Business, Education, Nature, Medical, etc.

Getting started

Getting started with Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 is easier than ever thanks to its redesigned Start UI, in which the user is able to choose from a good number of new templates and variants, as well as seeing some layout previews. In relation to this, we must highlight that this software includes a variation of built-in themes, with changes in colors and fonts. When it comes to inserting pictures, now you can choose whether to source them from your hard drive or from your cloud folders. Regarding the capability of inserting pictures obtained from the internet, we must say that the possibilities has been widened if you log in your Microsoft account. And the same happens when you save your presentations; you can choose whether to save things locally or in web services such as SkyDrive or SharePoint. You can even save as a video by choosing WMV or MPEG-4 formats, for instance.

One of the most outstanding enhancements of Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 has to do with the Presenter View. First, it has been darkened so the person presenting from behind the computer does not get that disturbing glow. Second, it now includes three resizable panes; Slide preview, Next Slide preview and Notes area, that you can adjust according to your preferences. To resize an area, hover your mouse over its divider bars, click and drag. Third, you can now jump to any section or slide in your presentation just by clicking in the Slide Sorter icon, or by right-clicking and choosing “See all slides”. Fourth, and maybe one of the most usable ones, is the ability to zoom in on slides just by clicking on the magnifying glass icon.
