Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting a transition for multiple slides, part of PowerPoint: Builds, Transitions, Animations, and Effects.
While you'll often apply transitions to one slide at a time, it's a good idea to save time and add consistency while applying it to an entire section at once. For example, I could select multiple photos here, and now if I click to add a transition, the same transition is applied to all images. Additionally, you can click Apply All, and it applies to every slide in the entire presentation. I'll often use Apply All and apply the default transition as a Fade.
So there's a gentle transition between each image with that more Television-like dissolve as it cross-fades from one slide to the next. Then, I'll go slide by slide and add custom transitions where I want something a little bit extra. Such as that fall for the title slide transition. I find that using the apply all with some selective modifications to be a pretty good workflow. If not, simply select multiple images within a section and make a change. Remember, if you got the images active, you could do just that.
So we've applied the fade to all images here, and I could choose this one, and select the fall over. Then grab the rest of these images here, with the shift click, and over ride the fade transition. Such as the gentle reveal. And I'll fade through black on that. Just quite nice. Let's choose Slide Show. I'll uncheck the Presenter's display for now and press Shift+F5. And you see I've got my fall transition, followed by the more elaborate push with a fade through black.
Once this section is over, the default fade takes control.
