(light music) - Hi, my name's Rich Harrington, and welcome to this course. We're gonna be exploring, using both photos and video effectively in your presentations. The goal is to add visual enhancement. After all, a powerful photo or a good video clip can really convey a lot of information. And it also makes information memorable. Rather than just filling your slides with a bunch of text or charts, you can enhance them with strong visuals. And the goal here is to really create something that's memorable.

Now, there are a lot of different ways to add photos and video to a presentation, things you could do outside of PowerPoint, as well as within PowerPoint, to enhance the appearance. We'll take a look at things like cropping and color correcting photos, as well as adjusting video clips so they play back smoothly within the presentation. We've got a lot ground to cover, and I'd like to welcome you to this class.
