Tired of jagged edges in your artwork? This week, take a look at how to import vector files into PowerPoint to make everything look crisp and clean.
- [Instructor] I'm Joel Simmons, AKA the presentation guy. … All right so lets jump into today's lesson … about the best image types to use in PowerPoint. … Okay so lets take a look at these two logos. … They may look pretty close when zoomed out, … but when you zoom in you can really … see a huge difference between the two. … Imagine what that first logo will look like … when it's projected on a huge screen. … It looks absolutely horrible. … This is because it's a rasterize image. … Now take a look at the second one. … It looks great because this is a vector image. … Images like JPEGs, PNGs, and TIFs, … are examples of raster images. … They can work well in most situations, … but they're not really that flexible. … Now they're perfect for static images … like photos, or maybe small logos … if they're high resolution enough, … but the moment you try to scale a tiny logo up … even a little bit, you are headed for disaster. … Now the left one's pretty bad, … but look at the one on the right. …
