…Let's start with a simple question, and that is, why use photos in a presentation?…The use of photos can greatly enhance a presentation,…and I'd like to give you a few reasons.…One of the first things to embrace is…the fact that there are different styles of learning.…Not everybody learns by simply listening.…Many people have to encode the information,…and for them, visuals can be handy.…Of course you say, you could read…text, but different people learn in different ways.…For many, a strong visual becomes a memory trigger.…
Or, something that takes a tough concept and makes it…a bit more visual for those who are visual learners.…Remember, not everyone in the audience thinks the way you think.…So, if you feel a need that photos just sort of…get in the way or seem like fluff, strongly reconsider your beliefs.…For many in the audience, particularly those that are younger, strong…visuals go a long way to helping them comprehend the information.…Photos are great at illustrating concepts.…Rather than just saying teamwork, you can show teamwork.…
