Tech Tip Thursday November 10, 2016

I love Google Slides as much as any Google fanatic but, to be honest, most of the presentation templates are quite boring. The same can be said for PowerPoint templates.

Would you like to add a little pizzazz and give your presentations a much needed face lift? Then THIS is the Tech Tip for you!

Slides Carnival is a website that offers dozens of FREE templates that can be used in Google Slides or Microsoft PowerPoint! There are several different categories for templates (Business, Elegant, Creative, etc.) and users can access the templates quickly with a just few clicks of the mouse.

Here's how it works:

Go to the Slides Carnival website.

First, go to www.slidescarnival.com. Select a template from several different categories including Formal, Inspirational, Playful, and Business.

Once you have selected a template, you can scroll through to view each individual slide in the theme. If you would like to use the template, click Use This Presentation Template.

A Google Slides presentation will automatically open in a new tab with the template you selected.

Now, you have the option to use this template in Slides, PowerPoint, OR BOTH!

To use the template in Google Slides:

First, make sure that you are logged into your Google account. Then, click File > Make a Copy.

Rename the template and select the location for the file in your Drive.

Click OK and an editable copy of the template will automatically be saved to your Drive!

To save as a PowerPoint template:

Select File > Download as > Microsoft PowerPoint (.pptx)

Rename the file and save it to your device!
