PowerPoint 2013 from Microsoft, available via electronic download, is a Windows application that allows you to create interactive presentations, complete with multimedia elements. You'll be able to edit photos and videos from directly within the application, ensuring that your presentation has a professional look and feel. You can even share your presentation online, allowing you to collaborate with colleagues with ease. You'll also be able to store important presentations on your smartphone.
Presenter View allows you to see your notes on your monitor while the audience only sees the slide. It automatically adapts to your projection set-up, and you can even use it on a single monitor.
Themes now come with a set of variations, like different color palettes and font families. And, PowerPoint 2013 provides enhanced widescreen themes along with standard sizes. Choose a theme and variant from the start screen or from the Design tab.
Now you've got several ways to share a PowerPoint presentation over the Web. You can send out a link to the slides, or start a full-on Lync meeting that displays the deck with audio and IM. Your audience can join you from anywhere, on any device using Lync or the Office Presentation Service.
No more eyeballing objects on your slides to see if they're lined up. Smart Guides automatically appear when your objects, such as pictures, shapes, and more, are close to even, and they also tell you when objects are spaced evenly.
PowerPoint now supports more multimedia formats, such as .mp4 and .mov with H.264 video and Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) audio, and more high-definition content. PowerPoint 2013 includes more built-in codecs so you don't have to install them for certain file formats to work.
