Using Images To Add Zing To Your Presentation: Visualbee's Advice

The key ingredient to a memorable slide presentation is presentation imagery. Thoughtful images never fail in keeping your audience engaged, reinforcing your professionalism, and making a lasting impression. But making your slides sizzle with the help of images takes more than just a pretty picture.

It’s best to spend a little time positioning and framing your images for high impact. This kind of creativity is essential when choosing images. Your audience and you too must have probably seen plenty of bad clip-art. The extensive use of PowerPoint clip art has set the bar low for slide design success and the monotonous use of images of businesspeople staring at computers makes standing apart from the crowd much easier. Being a little more inventive with your images will make you a hit.

Visualbee approaches your imagery in a clever and creative way, and look for illustrations that tell a story in a less obvious way.

Here are three of the slide design approaches for presentating images

Image Should Lead the Eye:

  • The imaginative placement of images keeps the audience engaged by compelling them away from the standard left-to-right reading pattern.
  • Place the image in the upper left corner of the slide
  • Choose a small image with a linear design element
  • Set the text so the design is pointing to it.

 

 

 

Use Unique Image Frames:

 

  • Adding a border is a common way to frame an image and making it more presentable. Here’s how you can do it:
  • Place 3 images on white rectangular “cards” and use a drop shadow.
  • Place the “cards” to the upper right 
  • Allow the very top of the images to bleed over the edge

 

 

 

 

 

Set the Slide Background as the Canvas: Plain white backgrounds with squared-off presentation images placed symmetrically have become out-dated now. Try this instead:

  • Pick a small image.
  • Set it to the right so the text is more prominent
  • Set the background to a complementary color and add a gradient texture.
  • Keep text to fewer than 10 words and use a contrasting font color.

 

 

 

 

Your pictures will be greatly enhanced.

Visualbee uses certain tricks and secrets like these to make add zing to your images, so your presentation turns out to be a big hit.
