“When it comes to technology as it relates to communication, then, what is often needed today is not more, but less.” Garr Reynolds
I find it takes a lot more time to find one image to sum up a big idea, I suppose this is because you are synthesizing ideas. I think it can make your presentation better because you really think about about message.
- I have never added images to the right, I saw this on Garr Reynold’s blog and decided to try it. Nice… takes the eye to the text!
I used this slide to convey tried and tested. I do not like the long link at the bottom it detracts form the slide. I would now use the authors name only or a tiny url. I wanted an image that matched the background. I used an image I could modify to get the affect, thanks to creative commons licensing.
Whilst this slide has lot of info I like the colours, it sets the mood as people walked into the presentation. Ideally I would loose the sharp edges on the photo. I think it is important to set the stage for your presentation and gentle jazz has had some good feedback!
