Search for photos with matching color

PowerPoint has theme colors. Each design (template) has a different set of colors. You want to find particular photos / images which match the theme colors. Sounds like a difficult task? Not at all. Use Insert – Online Pictures – Pexels. Install the software and search.  Type the keyword and click on the color you want. Try it out now. For details read this article.  Here, I searched for orange colored cars.

PowerPoint Graphics: Quick Demo

For the previous post, Mouse as a learning tool, I created this graphic in PowerPoint…

PowerPoint Graphics

The idea was to show mouse and learning in one attractive artwork. I thought it would be useful to explain how this graphic was created. It required few minutes to create.

It started with simple Office online clipart of a brain scan (search for “Brain photo”) and a photograph of a mouse (Microsoft Hardware site).

Here is the video. No commentary. No music. Just ONE minute to do it.

View it in High Res – 720 P and Full screen so that you can see the menu interactions in detail. I have not used ZOOM this time.
(In short videos, Zoom takes up time and it also confuses the viewer)

Enjoy. Do post your feedback and comments.
