1. Open the Power Point.
2. Save it under a new name.
3. Delete the slides you no longer need.
4. Add new slides.
5. Edit all slides - sometimes a date may change and a slide needs to be revised.
The screen will look something like this:
STEP 1. Save immediately with a NEW NAME. The name should be this coming Sunday's date.
STEP 2. Find the slides you want to delete. To delete, highlight the slide on the left column.
After deleting slides that are no longer useful, you will now add new slides.
Step 1 to adding slides is to insert a new slide. Go to the top menu bar and click INSERT
Step 2: From INSERT, open the drop down menu and highlight NEW SLIDE
STEP 3 When you insert the new slide, it will appear like this:
Step 4: You will want to delete the Text Box that covers most of the slide. Move your curser until it meets the edging of the box. Click and press delete.
Step 5: Move the curser to the top Text Box and the wording "Click to add title" and the slide will look like this:
Step 5: With the curser in the Text Box, type the new caption there.
Step 8: The selected portion will change to yellow - BUT it won't look yellow because the text is still highlighted.
Step 9: Move the curser somewhere and click, and now the text will appear in its proper color, as seen below:
Step 10 - now you need to add an image to the slide. It might be a piece of clip art. Or it might be a photo. Let's assume that your image is saved on your computer on the MY DOCUMENTS folder. Click the START at the extreme bottom left of the computer screen.
Step 11: Click MY DOCUMENTS (or pictures, or whatever the folder is where your image has been saved). Find the image and highlight it. Move the image from the folder to the Power Point screen by taking the curser, right clicking the image on My Documents, keep the right click pressed, and drag the image over to the the Power Point, and release. The image should now appear on the Power Point Screen.
Step 13: Let's tackle the size first. Move the curser over the picture and click the mouse so that a pop up screen appears.
Step 14: Now highlight and click FORMAT PICTURE on this pop up screen.
Step 15: A new pop up screen will appear.
Step 16: Go to the top menu bar on the pop up screen and click the SIZE tab.
Step 17: To resize the picture, go to either HEIGHT or WIDTH and begin to change the size of the image. There is some guess work here.
Step 18: Press OK. Because there is guess work here, you might have to repeat for a different size.
Step 19: Having resized the image, you must now center the photo. Take the curser and move it on top of the photo. Click and hold the mouse button, and drag the image.
