Get Creative with Powerpoint

My overall experience with Powerpoint has been good. It allows me to organize text and images ways that are visually pleasing and that communicate information effectively.

Pros

I like the ability to import, resize, rotate and animate images with ease that rivals many graphic artist programs. There's several different ways to add and delete slides from a presentation, and advancing or rewinding slides is as easy as pushing arrow keys on keyboard or using a presenter remote. Powerpoint gives access to a large library of design templates and themes to give your presentation its own unique feel, and the program groups some of the most commonly used commands on a ribbon for quick access.

Cons

I don't have any cons to list for Powerpoint, as I've used it for school, business, and personal projects without issues.

With PowerPoint, I was able to achieve and complete more projects about Solar Battery and Inverter Projects, it facilitates my work to insert more information with statistics correctly.

Pros

On PowerPoint, I can make some fun and pizzazz to my slides easier, it has a series of new graphs that facilities the representation, it's possible to establish a Youtube Video in PowerPoint Project and insert a Functioning Excel Worksheet into a Presentation, also I can convert a bulleted list to a layout (SmartArt). It's a creative tool.

Cons

Sometimes when we want to send a file, there is a risk to will be damaged by a virus.
It is a project that has more presentation that distracts people by the number of movements and does not care or pay attention to the information that is being shared.

Alternatives Considered

Reasons for Switching to Microsoft PowerPoint

I choose PowerPoint over the other products because it has an excellent Visual Impact that allows using images, audio, and video to have a great representation. It's possible to work in a collaborative manner to have good content sharing and flexibility.

Missing features and difficult to use

I have been using presentation software since Aldus Persuasion. When Adobe, who Aldus merged with, discontinued Persuasion, I had to switch to the much less capable PowerPoint. Over the years, PowerPoint added in some of the cool features of Persuasion. But it took Microsoft several years to make it work as smoothly as Persuasion and they never got it completely right. But it was the only option, at the time. Eventually, Apple introduced Keynote for Mac, which included most of what had been in Persuasion and much more. It took them a couple of years to get it right. But during that time, they kept adding in new features. The more I used Keynote, the less I liked PowerPoint. Today, I only keep PowerPoint around for opening someone else's PowerPoint files. I have found Keynote to be a far superior product, both in features and ease of use. I can quickly and easily do things in Keynote that totally baffles PowerPoint pros. PowerPoint never was all that good, to begin with. It only stayed around because it was promoted as part of MS Office, to be the "standard." It did get better, over the years. But it still lags far behind Keynote. But if you're not a Mac user, it's your only real choice, since Keynote only works on Mac.

Pros

The only pro that I can think of is that you can open those PowerPoint files that you occasionally get in emails. It's probably quite acceptable for simple slide shows, with simple transitions. But that's where it ends. If you want your presentation to look really professional, this is not the software for you.

Cons

It's far more difficult to do some transitions in PowerPoint than in Keynote for Mac. It's like you're doing things that it was not designed to do. There are also some transitions that I do in Keynote that I have yet to figure out a way to do in PowerPoint. It's just awkward to use. It also requires more steps to do certain things (i.e. you have to apply time-consuming kludges to make certain things work). It's very basic and definitely NOT for professional looking presentations.

I have been using Microsoft PowerPoint for more than 10 years, I started using it from the 2003 edition. As a salesperson, I use Microsoft PowerPoint to present my sales to my management team, and Microsoft PowerPoint helps me to create the best presentations.

Pros

Microsoft PowerPoint is the best software for presentations in the world. It has all features and abilities to create presentations at very high levels. I like the animating feature that allows you to bring your presentations live. The most important addition in Microsoft PowerPoint is the (Morph) transition it is the best thing in Microsoft PowerPoint.

Cons

The is nothing to dislike about Microsoft PowerPoint it is the best software I have ever use.
