Keeping the attention of your audience with this powerful graphic tool will certainly transform and enhance your presentation into a masterpiece. In this video, our PowerPoint Presentation Wizard will show you exactly how easy it is to use what is called SmartArt. SmartArt graphics are pre-defined templates that allow for very easy insertion of graphics of all types that contain text and even images that will enhance your information.

With SmartArt, you can also create a beautiful table of organization that can be easily modified and edited! This helpful tool allows you to create the diagrams that you need with ease, without having to use an external design program and then insert it into your slide. PowerPoint 2013 allows you to beautify and organize your key points right in the application.

Before you create your SmartArt graphic, it is important to visualize what type of graphic you would like to use, as well as what layout is best for displaying your data. You will want to consider what you would like to convey with your SmartArt graphic. You can quickly and easily switch it up and have the opportunity to try different layouts using the Layouts Gallery. Simply hover over different layouts and enjoy Live Preview until you find the one that best illustrates your message in a way that is clear and easy to follow. To quickly add a designer-quality look and polish your SmartArt graphic, apply a SmartArt Style to it.

We encourage you to experiment with this amazing and powerful graphic tool. It is guaranteed to increase the attractiveness of your slides!
