So that's how! Great PowerPoint features

CD that holds packaged files
Pick up tricks in four areas, including the new Microsoft® Office PowerPoint® 2003 feature that lets you package presentations to a CD. Tips on templates, the title master slide, and picture optimization round out the course.

About this course

This course includes:

  • Four self-paced lessons and four practice sessions for hands-on experience.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Browse to insert a customized template into a presentation.
  • Use the title master to add a unique design to title slides.
  • Optimize picture images to make your presentation file smaller.
  • Package one or several presentations to a CD or folder (see also "Before you begin" on this page).

In this course, learn about four excellent features in PowerPoint that you should add to your everyday toolkit.

The newest of these, Package for CD, gives you a slick way to copy presentations and other files to a CD.

You'll also learn how to reuse a template you've customized; use the title master slide to vary the slide design in a show; and optimize images, such as photos, to keep file sizes small.

To package to a CD from PowerPoint, you must have Microsoft Windows XP or later and a CD burner. If you have Windows 2000, you can still use this feature to package the presentation files to a folder, and then use a third-party program to burn the folder to a CD.
