We interact with the objects around us, there are enormous number of them, but every object has its own shape, size & style. Through which we identify and understand the use of these objects in our daily life. So, while getting them on screen make sure that these shapes should look-a-like the real object as in our daily life.
PowerPoint provides us the better solution for these shapes to convert them into real life object which means we can convert a 2D shape into 3D Object for better representation. This makes user or audience understand your thoughts or point of information which you want to deliver through your presentation.
Here’s how we do it:
- After adding your selected shape do a right-click on it and select ‘Format Shape’
- Select a solid fill or gradient fill (This step is not mandatory but will enhance the 3D look of your shape/object)
- Now select ‘Effects’ option in the Format Shape navigation panel and select ‘3D Format’ tab. Here you can give the 3D looks to your shape by adding depth, bevel, contour and surface type
- Then select ‘3D Rotation’ to give 3D perspective and you can rotate the object if required
By this process you can enhance any object, shape or image to 3D effect for better presentation. Even though you can save this object as a Picture file from PowerPoint to use them somewhere else. For this just right-click on object and select ‘Save as Picture’.
So like in our daily life, start creating the 3D objects in digital life too.
