How to add transitions in PowerPoint

PowerPoint transitions

Creating slides in PowerPoint allows us to show information related to a project in an orderly way, whether it is focused on our work or for the family environment. This application is commonly used to create compilations of photos and share them in video format, though not always.

If your idea is to collect various photographs, which are shown for a certain time and create a video with all of them, you add transitions. In this way, between photography and photography, a small animation will be shown that will output the previous photo and enter the new content.

Power point offers us different types of transitions to customize our presentations, transitions we can set their duration. One piece of advice, the faster the better.

Depending on the type of transition, it has a predetermined duration, a duration that we can modify to suit our needs. An advice: the faster the transition, the betterOtherwise, the video will be very long and the transitions will have a prominence that they should not.
