Here are some things that people have trouble with when using PowerPoint. One of the main things that people have trouble with when using PowerPoint is resizing certain elements. When you are resizing elements in this program, you want to size them so that everything is the same size. Make sure that when resizing things that you do it all at once.

Click the other pictures that you want resize
Then you mouse drag the picture to the size that you want
Sometime people use the PowerPoint program but they are using a later or outdated version of Microsoft word therefore they are having trouble enabling the slides that they have created. To fix this problem all you need to do is,

The more fun you have with your PowerPoint presentation then the better it will look. What makes a presentation look good is when people add shapes and images to their slides. People might have trouble doing this, but in actuality it is quite simple. You can add shapes to the PowerPoint slide by simply using the AutoShapes button from the Drawing toolbar. You can also add symbols and test to the shape if you like to do so.
