Posted In MS office - By Techtiplib on Sunday, January 27th, 2013 With No Comments »

Although numerous tutorials recommend that too much text on a single slide is not a good idea and less text with only key points is the golden line. But it’s not necessary that PowerPoint with much text is absolutely worse. At times a large paragraph of text is required when it is analysts cited from others’ works. When you insert an image into a PowerPoint presentation, text is re-positioned above, below or to either side of the image. To blend the image into your text, wrap text around the image. Wrapping text means the text completely surrounds the image on all available sides. By wrapping text around images in PowerPoint, you can place your image anywhere on the presentation and still have your text look great. You can also wrap text around an image to add details about the image around the actual image.
