PowerPoint can do a lot more than people give it credit for—the problem for most folks is using it well. 

For designers who are used to Adobe products, it can be frustrating to work in new software.

This interface tour talks about PowerPoint features in terms that designers are used to and points out the features Adobe users are looking for around editing text, layouts & formatting. 

Image effects can also be accessed in the formatting pane which we discuss here.

Steve Sheets, Technical Director

Steve is a designer with high expectations for a final product but he tends to obsess over process too. He likes to know the many ways to get things done, the advantages of each and their oh so scary pitfalls. Perhaps that's why he has a Mac and a PC?

"Workflows are one of the few times in life where the best way tends to be the easy way, the trick is figuring out what's 'easy' for your specific situation."
