How The Best Way To Use Images In PowerPoint Presentation

How The Best Way To Use Images In PowerPoint Presentation - What if we want to insert an image into a presentation that represents an event, a place, a situation, a concept? Obviously we will choose the subjects that represent these events, places, situations and concepts. However sometimes the effect is not as anticipated, simply because the image is "too much."


An image can contain many things, and these things sometimes fight with each other for our attention, without focusing it on anything in particular. It is more than word (read : PowerPoint Presentation Opening Talk).

Paradoxically, we can capture the essence of the "everything" that we want to represent only if we can isolate a detail that represents him.

Also in this case, then, s i is removed, not to add. This effort determine how successful a business presentation. One benefit in using image correctly is increasing audience attention to your presentation.

It's easy to say: "In a presentation and trying to use the images." that is OK, we already have seen where to find them and we understand that they are important, but how to place them in a presentation?

I have already spoken a few times, but it's worth going back on, because there are some great resources that I want to point the way.

For example, some PowerPoint presentation template devotes two posts to the topic, the first dedicated to the most effective types of images in a slide show , according to the techniques of optimal placement on the slide .

On the first point (that is: what are the best images?) The author identifies a number of features that make the difference, namely:
  • Relevance of the image with respect to the subject
  • Overused images (target, shake hands, etc.)
  • Divergent associations with the theme
  • Realism of the images (no lacquered models in hi tech offices)
  • Exaggerations explanatory purposes
  • Pictures of people
  • Images that tell stories
  • Images that evoke emotions
  • Humor


The key thing is to understand at what point you place the image in the axis that goes from distraction to the image that makes the "bang".

In the second post we talk of miles positioning techniques and here are some patterns identified:
  • Asymmetry
  • Blank
  • Viewpoints
  • Perspective
  • Details
  • Foreground-background ratio
  • Action
  • Repetition
  • Color
