In this video, you can learn how to insert a variety of graphics options that now include icons, scalable vector graphics, and 3D models, each with their own set of formatting options to modify and enhance how they appear on your slides.
- [Narrator] To help you create eye-catching slides, Power Point 2019 now makes it fast and easy to add built-in icons and 3D models. You can even insert vector graphics, too. Let me give it a try with this first slide. I'm going to the insert tab. You'll notice in the illustrations group, you'll find icons now and 3D models. If we just wanted to insert a picture that's an SVG file, or scalable vector graphics, when we go to pictures here, to navigate, you'll notice with the all pictures button, clicking the drop down, a new option appears here for scalable vector graphics, SVG files.
So it's good to know that you can bring those in. That's not what we're looking for, though. We're going to close this up, and start with icons. Clicking here gives us access to some built-in icons, that we can choose from. You can see the various categories here down the left-hand size. You'll see those categories as well, as you start scrolling down through the long list of different icons, you can pull from. Business related ones, analytics, commerce, here's education, arts, a lot of faces, signs and symbols and so on.
So if I wanted to bring something in, like a coffee cup, I can select it. You can select multiple items if you want to, and bring them all in once. You only need the one, though. Deselect the others by clicking them again. Click insert to bring in whatever's selected. And with icons you can see, and if you like them, just like we would with other images, move them around. And you'll notice graphic tools up here with a format tab. From here we see graphic styles.
We can change up the style if we want it to be white on the inside, a thin line around the outside, or black, gray. You can see no fill and just a line, if we wanted to. And if you want to, you can convert them to shapes here in Power Point. Clicking convert to shape, shows it's not a group. Do you want to convert it anyways? Clicking yes converts it to a shape which gives us different options under the format tab.
Now you can see we can do things like add text. you can see we have shape styles now, instead of graphic styles, more to choose from. Find one that we that we like. And even adjust things like the fill, the outline and shape effects, if we wanted to, for example, give it a shadow to make it three dimensional. Click in the background to see the end result. So those are icons. There's also 3D models. Really cool stuff. Let's select what we brought in, if you're following along, and delete it with the delete key on the keyboard. Instead we'll go up to insert and choose 3D models.
Notice there's a drop down here. It can be from a file or from online sources. If you have your own 3D models you'll choose from a file, and go find that 3D model you created. Otherwise you can get them using online sources. This opens up the dialogue. With this search field up here at the top, you'll see some that show up here already. I don't see what we need, so in the search field, I can type something like coffee. Press enter. And it looks like this coffee cup might work nicely on my first slide.
Selecting it checks it off. Again we can select multiple items. I think just this one, and insert to bring in the 3D model. Now they're treated differently when it comes to making modifications. And as you can see here, we're looking at it straight on. You can move it around, you can size it, with the sizing handles. But what's really cool is we can go right in the center here, and rotate it, up, down, left, right. I'd like it to be a right-handed handle.
And I'm going to tilt it down, so we can see some of the coffee in there as well. There are some format options for 3D models. You can see, you can choose from a preset view, if we wanted to. Just hover over these and you'll see what they look like. Saves us manually moving that rotation handle to get what we're looking for. But, I think I like what we've done. Click in the background to deselect. And that's a quick look at icons, 3D models and the ability to bring in scalable vector graphics, or SVG files.
