The basic purpose of a PowerPoint presentation is to communicate information or media through a series of slides.
Along with regular text, your slides can contain numerous types of content such as tables, images, drawings, charts, links, word art, videos, audio and even embedded add-ins from Microsoft.
The software also has built-in editing tools that you can use to resize, position and update content without needing to open items in other applications.
Whether you use one slide or many, you can find uses for PowerPoint in many professions and areas. Some examples of PowerPoint projects include:
- Work portfolios
- Business meetings
- Tutorials for students and workers
- Photo slideshows
- Mailing labels
- Timelines and flowcharts
- Family trees
