- Hi, I'm David Diskin, Certified Master of Microsoft Office, and welcome to Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 New Features. I've designed this course to be a quick journey through most of the changes and additions to Microsoft's latest release. So if you're already familiar with PowerPoint 2007, and you're either thinking about upgrading, or you already have, I think you'll enjoy the focus of this course. Here's a glimpse of new features that I'm excited to demonstrate. First, we'll split your presentation into sections for easier navigation, copy and pasting, and formatting control.

I'll demonstrate how to import video, and how you can easily trim it down to just the segments you want, add fades, and control volume. And speaking of video, we'll save your finished presentation as a video file that's perfect for uploading to YouTube, Facebook, or burning to a DVD. If you feel like you're not quite up to speed with PowerPoint and you want to learn all its features from the ground up, I suggest you watch my Essential Training course instead. So if you're ready, let's go ahead and check out PowerPoint 2010's new features.
