PowerPoint 2019 allows you to take your presentation to the next level by creating diagrams, inserting shapes, and adding SmartArt graphics. Key concepts covered in this 10-video course include how to insert predefined shapes to create a diagram and once inserted, to customize by changing dimensions, style, or adding text to it; how to create custom shapes, as well as being able to design a shape with freehand tools; and how to add fill effects to inserted shapes such as using block colors, applying gradients, adding pictures, and even bitmap textures. You will learn how to customize your shapes and text boxes by changing the border styles, by creating thicker lines, colored lines, and adjusting line style; how to add effects like a shadow to inserted shapes; and how to use the chart creation tool or insert a preexisting chart and format either one. Finally, learners observe how to insert predefined SmartArt graphics into a presentation, and edit it by changing size and layout and change the format by modifying style and color.
