Lets assume that our goal is to highlight some areas on the picture and provide comments to them
one by one.
Here we have an empty Power Point presentation
Lets insert an image. E.g. HeiHei.ru website logo.
Click Insert → Pictures → Choose Picture
Create a text box with some content and select some area on the image.
Group these two objects together.
With the Group still selected go to Animations → Choose Appear
Click Add Animation → Choose Disappear
Create second group of objects.
Repeat the same steps:
Go to Animations → Appear
Add Animation → Disappear
You can control the order of Animations from the Animation Pane.
Various types of animation are colorcoded and have icons. For example Appear is a green star with a cross on it's background and Dissapear is a same icon except the color which is red .
Quite often you want the second Group to appear immediately after the first Group is gone so no additional mouse click is required
Go to Animation Pane → Choose the second Group Appear Animation → Right Click → Start with Previous
If you do not want to share the source file of your presentation, but only
need to show the result.
In this case you can always save it not as a .pptx file but as a PowerPoint Macros-Enabled Show file with .ppsm extension
It will start as a normal presentation but will not have any editing options.
