Effective Presentations and Visual Arts

Slide backgrounds, shapes and word art can play a good role in a presentation. A presentation mush consist of both text and images. Background styles are important as they are just like the way we paint a room. If the paint and theme of the room is good looking, putting different decorations (text and images) would make a good sense. Having said that, an excess use of these features can also damage the quality of a presentation. The presentation should have an equilibrium between text and images.
