Animation Factory Graphics In PowerPoint™

Make your next PowerPoint presentation look great with Animation Factory Graphics in 3 easy steps.
Animated GIFs will only animate in PowerPoint 2000 or higher. If you are using an older version, the GIFs will only display as a regular image, showing only the first frame of the animation.

Assemble the graphics you want to use.

For expediency, save all the graphics you intend to use in the presentation in one folder, including slide backgrounds, animations and PhotoClips.

Set up your slides.

The key to making a PowerPoint presentation fast is to set up your slide master. Click view - master - slide master. This how you set up the general appearance of ALL your slides. From the slide master, you can determine the common background, fonts and where the type appears on the slides.


From the pull down menu, click format - background. A dialog box will pop up. Click fill effects - picture. Find the folder and select your background.

Clipart and Animations:

From the pull down menu, click insert - picture - from file. A dialog box will then pop up. Find the folder and select the appropriate graphics. Add all animations, photographs and clipart this way.

Do not add animated GIFs through movies and sounds. Animated GIFs should always be added as a picture. Adding them as a movie will disable some of their features in some versions of PowerPoint.

If you're having problems with your graphics being on top of your text and/or other graphics, there is a simple fix. At the bottom of your screen, click draw - order and find the appropriate icon needed to put your graphics in the correct layer order.


We found that adding some transitions really gave the presentation that finished look. Click slide show – slide transition to bring up the slide show transitions library.

Have Fun!
