    If you want to make your PowerPoint presentation attract your audiences’ eyes, Animation is one of the best tools you should learn to use. Adding animations in PowerPoint 2010 is a bit different from previous versions for many buttons we are used to have been changed, removed or emerged into one. Basically animations are added to pictures and texts; now let’s take a look at how to animate picture and text in PowerPoint 2010.

    Adding Animation to Picture:

    Select the picture first and click “Animations” tab on the ribbon. Below in the “Animation” group choose “Animation Styles” and select one animation.

    Add Animation to Picture-1

    Click the “Add Animation” button in the “Advanced Animation” group and you can add multiple animations to one object.

    Add Animation to Picture-2

    Click “Animation Pane” (same to “Customize Animations” for PowerPoint 2007) so you can further adjust the settings of the animations, like trigger, timing and other effect options.

    Adding Animation to Text:

    Adding animation of text is almost the same as picture. But there are some differences for text have some different “Effect Options”. For example, choose “Zoom” from the “Animation Styles”. By selecting a sequence, you decide whether the text appears as one object, all at once, or by paragraph.

    Add Animation to Text-1

    If you choose “Float in” animation, when you click “Effect Options”, you can choose which direction you want the text to float in.

    Preview Your Animations:

    Click on the “Preview” button anytime to see what the animation looks like and modify if necessary.
