Can You Always Find That Perfect Image?


Question:

You have an important presentation coming up.
You have a short period of time to prepare for it.
You have a terrific idea for a slide design.
You hunt for the perfect image on the internet.
Your search takes an eternity.
The perfect image eludes you.

What do you do?

a) PANIC
b) GIVE UP
c) CREATE IT YOURSELF

If you answered a) or b), this blog entry might not be for you.

Sometimes, the quickest way to get your hands on the perfect image is to create it yourself. When that need arises, you’ll be amazed how the careful combination of a few shapes and lines can help you to create the perfect design or enhance exiting imagery.

Obviously, the standard drawing toolbars in PowerPoint or Keynote are no match for stunning professional stock imagery, but you can adapt your slide show to accommodate some very basic designs and visually communicate your ideas in a meaningful and effective way.

Check out the examples below, and you will see that the imagery that appears in the slides have all been created using basic drawing tools in PowerPoint and Keynote. All that’s required is a little creativity and some patience, and before you know it, you have the perfect design.
