How to loop a powerpoint presentation.

If you're showing off a lot of photos at a special event, set your presentation to progress at a continuous, automatic loop. Here's how.

Quick Links

Set up your slideshow to be looped, apply automatic slide transitions.

Slideshows are sometimes used to display images at events, such as weddings or trade shows. Whatever the occasion might be, you’ll want to loop your PowerPoint presentation so your guests aren’t staring at a blank screen. Here’s how it’s done.

First, open your PowerPoint presentation in which you would like to loop. Once open, navigate to the “Set Up” group of the “Slide Show” tab and then select the “Set Up Slide Show” button.

The “Set Up Show” window will appear. In the “Show options” group, check the box next to “Loop Continuously until Esc.” Once selected, click “OK” in the bottom-right corner of the window.

Now, when you play your slideshow, it will end only when you press the “Esc” key instead of when you've finished the last slide.

One caveat: With the way we currently have it set up, the slideshow will proceed only when someone clicks the mouse button. That’s fine if there will be a speaker present at all times. Otherwise, you’ll need to set up automatic slide transitions.

Head back to the “Set Up Show” window by selecting “Set Up Slide Show” in the “Set Up” group of the “Slide Show” tab.

There are a couple of options you need to select, but one important note is that you must first select “Using Timings, If Present” under the “Advance Slides” group.

The next option we select will lock a few things in place (which is why you need to select “Using Timings, If Present” first).

Under the “Show Type” group, select “Browsed at a Kiosk (Full Screen)." The “Loop Continuously until Esc” option will be enabled automatically if you haven’t already turned it on, and the option you’ve selected under “Advance Slides” will remain unchanged.

Select “OK” when ready to proceed.

Without the “Browsed at a Kiosk” option enabled, the automatic slide progressions would be disabled if someone were to press the Back key. With it enabled, the Forward and Back keys are locked, allowing the slideshow to automatically progress unattended without fear of someone breaking it.

Now it’s time to set the timings of the slides. Head over to the “Transitions” tab. In the “Timing” group, check the box next to “After” and set the timing at which you’d like each slide to progress. Note that it doesn’t matter if the box next to “On Mouse Click” is checked or not---it won’t work.

After that, select the “Apply to All” option in the same group.

Now, when you play your slideshow, it will continuously loop without interruption. To exit the slideshow, press the “Esc” button.

Set up a PowerPoint Presentation That Loops or Repeats Continuously

by Avantix Learning Team | Updated November 12, 2021

Applies to: Microsoft ®  PowerPoint ®  2013, 2016, 2019 and 365 (Windows)

You can set up a PowerPoint slide show to loop or repeat automatically. A looping presentation can be used at events, trade shows or even in a reception area in an office. The easiest way to set up a slide show to loop or replay continuously is to apply automatic transitions and then configure Slide Show settings.

Step 1: Apply transitions to automatically advance slides during a slide show

Transitions occur between slides when you run a slide show.

To apply transitions to automatically advance slides during a slide show:

  • In Normal View or Slide Sorter View, display or select a slide.
  • Click the Transitions tab in the Ribbon.
  • Select a transition in the Transitions gallery (such as Fade).
  • Click Effect Options and choose the desired option. Effect Options change depending on the transition you selected.
  • In the Timing group, click the arrows beside Duration to set the timing you want (in seconds) for the transition. You may also type a duration.
  • In the Timing group, under Advance Slides, deselect or uncheck On mouse click and beside After, select or click the up and down arrows to set the timing to transition to the next slide. You may also type a duration.
  • In the Timing group, click Apply to All.

In the Transitions tab in PowerPoint, you can select the type of transition (such as Fade) as well as timing options:

Transitions tab in the Ribbon in PowerPoint to apply transitions and timings.

Step 2: Set up a presentation to loop during a slide show

To set up a PowerPoint presentation to loop during a slide show:

  • Click the Slide Show tab in the Ribbon and then click Set Up Slide Show. A dialog box appears.
  • Under Show type, if you select Presented by a speaker (full screen), the speaker or those watching the slide show will have control over when they advance slides. This is the default setting for slide shows. If you select Browsed by an individual (window), those watching the slide show do NOT have control over when slides advance. If you select Browsed at kiosk (full screen), those watching the slide show do NOT have control over when slides advance and the presentation automatically loops until those watching press Escape (Esc).
  • Under Show options, select Loop continuously until 'Esc'. You will be able to select this option if you selected one of the first two options under Show type.

Below is the Set Up Show dialog box with Presented by speaker selected and looping enabled:

If you want to set specific timings for slides to advance or to add narration, check out the article How to Run a PowerPoint Slide Show Automatically (Set Up a Self-Running Presentation) . If you have audio or video in the presentation, you'll need to set the media to play automatically (on the Playback tab in the Ribbon) and animations will also need to be set to run automatically.

You can fade a picture in PowerPoint by drawing a rectangle shape on top of the picture and then filling the rectangle with a gradient from opaque to transparent.

Since the rectangle is placed on top of the image and then text may be placed on top of the rectangle, you may need to reorder the objects.

How to Loop a PowerPoint Presentation

Author avatar

Just like an animated GIF or video clip, you can loop a slideshow in Microsoft PowerPoint. This is ideal if you set the presentation to automatically play because it starts at the beginning each time it ends to create an infinite loop.

Here’s how to loop a PowerPoint presentation on Windows and Mac. Currently, PowerPoint on the web doesn’t offer a Loop feature.

Set the Timing to Advance the Slides

Before you set your PowerPoint presentation to loop, you may want to adjust the timing to advance through the slides. You can use the same time for each slide or display particular slides for a longer amount of time.

  • Open your presentation in PowerPoint on Windows or Mac and go to the Transitions tab.
  • In the Timing section of the ribbon, check the box for After and enter the time in seconds to the right. You can also use the arrows to move the time up or down in small increments.

  • To set different times for slides, select the next slide and use the above step to choose the After timing. Continue this process for the remaining slides.
  • To set the same timing for all slides in the presentation, select Apply To All in the Timing section.

  • If you only want continuous play to advance the slides, you can uncheck the box directly above for On Mouse Click . However, if you want the ability to advance the slides with a mouse click and after a certain amount of time, you can leave the box checked.

Once you have the timings set to advance the slides, you can turn on the Loop setting.

  • Go to the Slide Show tab and select Set Up Slide Show in the Set Up section.

  • Under Show type , choose an option to play your presentation.

How to Loop a PowerPoint SlideShow from Selected Slides

Eliminating manual intervention and maintaining audience interaction can be achieved by carefully choosing which slides to show throughout the presentation. Follow these steps to learn how to loop a PowerPoint slideshow from selected slides: 

  • Select the “Slide Show” option to start a loop for a particular set of slides. To initiate the loop, click the first slide in the thumbnail pane on the left.

It gives presenters a simple and quick option to stop the continuous playback so they can answer queries, have conversations, or go to particular slides that are not playing continuously.

Advanced Techniques for Creating a Seamless Loop in PowerPoint

  • Choose “Play” from the animation gallery’s “Media” section after clicking the “ Add Animation ” button.
  • On the right side of the screen, click the “Animation Pane” to open it.
  • Right-click the “Play” button and choose “Timing” in the “Animation Pane.”
  • Choose “Until End of Slide” or “Until Next Click” as the “Repeat” option in the “Timing” tab.
  • Use Triggers to adjust the start and stop times of the video.

Tips and Tricks for Effective Slideshow Looping in PowerPoint

As you can see, creating a PowerPoint loop video couldn’t be easier. It only takes three easy steps to complete. Nonetheless, there are always specific tips you may apply to improve the appeal and attention-grabbingness of your videos.

Explains Tips For Effective Slideshow Looping in PowerPoint

1. Selecting the Right Video

The length and content of the video are the primary considerations when discussing the “right” video. Therefore, consider the duration of your video when creating a continuous loop.

Yes, longer videos can be more captivating, but they may add to the presentation’s file size and degrade performance. Shorter video clips, however, are less likely to affect performance and can loop more naturally. Regarding the video’s substance, make sure it supports the main idea of your presentation and is pertinent to the subject of your talk. The video aims to increase viewer comprehension and engagement without becoming overbearing or intrusive.

2. Compressing Video Files

Large videos can detract from the overall image of your presentation by making it excessively slow and challenging to share. Therefore, consider using a specialized video compression tool or the built-in PowerPoint compression feature to optimize your presentation by compressing the files. It doesn’t always imply that your presentation will look grainy. Still, it can cause a noticeable quality loss, so keep that in mind when creating the presentation in the first place.

3. Examining the Presentation

Make sure the video loops accurately and smoothly by testing it before you deliver your presentation. Go over the entire presentation, looking for any inconsistent or problematic playback. If you complete your testing on time, you can safely make all the required changes and retest it until the loop video functions as planned.

4. Looping Videos to Create Ambience and Background

You can also use videos that loop to set the mood for your presentation. For instance, a natural setting or a soft animation can produce an aesthetically pleasing and captivating ambiance. Nevertheless, the presentation’s general subject and the background clip are complementary rather than distracting.

To sum up, looping your PowerPoint slideshow is simple. PowerPoint’s “Set Up Slide Show options” allow you to program it to loop indefinitely for a predetermined number of times.

Use transitions carefully, arrange your slides in the correct order, and adhere to best practices while making your looping PowerPoint to give it a polished, professional appearance. Your looping slideshow can operate flawlessly at events without supervision with the correct settings.

How to Loop Slideshow In Powerpoint?

It’s a straightforward process: Set up your slides, head to the ‘Slide Show’ tab, click on ‘Set Up Slide Show’, tick the ‘Loop continuously until ‘Esc” box, and voila – your presentation is set to loop.

After completing this action, your PowerPoint presentation will automatically replay from the beginning once it reaches the end. This is particularly useful for presentations displayed at kiosks, trade shows, or in waiting areas, ensuring your audience doesn’t miss any content.

Introduction

Ever been to a trade show and noticed how some booths have screens with presentations that seem to run endlessly? That’s the magic of looping presentations, a feature that’s built into PowerPoint but not always used to its fullest potential.

Having a presentation loop can serve multiple purposes. For those in marketing, it means your message is continually being broadcast without the need for manual intervention. For educators, it could mean students have more time to absorb information. And for those in the corporate world, it ensures that important data is consistently on display for stakeholders and team members to see.

Looping presentations are not only efficient but also incredibly simple to set up in PowerPoint. Knowing how to do this is a great skill to have in your back pocket. Whether you’re prepping for an exhibition, setting up a self-running informational display, or just want to make sure your audience can see your presentation in its entirety, no matter when they walk in the room – this article is for you.

PowerPoint Looping Presentations Tutorial

Before diving into the steps, it’s important to understand what we’re aiming to achieve. By the end of this tutorial, your PowerPoint presentation will be capable of running on its own, looping endlessly until manually stopped. It’s an excellent way to keep an audience engaged with your content, even if you’re not actively presenting.

Step 1: Open your PowerPoint presentation

Open the PowerPoint presentation you wish to loop.

When you have your presentation open, you’ll want to ensure that all your slides are in the correct order and that any timings, animations, or transitions are set up as you want them. This is crucial because once the presentation starts looping, these aspects will play over and over again.

Step 2: Click on the ‘Slide Show’ tab

Navigate to the ‘Slide Show’ tab located on the ribbon at the top of PowerPoint.

The ‘Slide Show’ tab is where you’ll find all the settings related to the presentation’s display. It’s your control center for how the presentation will run.

Step 3: Select ‘Set Up Slide Show’

Click on the ‘Set Up Slide Show’ button within the ‘Slide Show’ tab.

This action opens a new window with various options for running your presentation. It’s like the backstage area before a performance, where you make all the necessary tweaks.

Step 4: Choose ‘Loop continuously until ‘Esc”

In the ‘Set Up Show’ window, check the box that says ‘Loop continuously until ‘Esc”.

This is the setting that transforms your presentation from a one-time run-through to an endlessly looping display. It’s the crucial step in ensuring your content gets maximum exposure.

Step 5: Save your settings

Click ‘OK’ to save your settings and close the ‘Set Up Show’ window.

Once you’ve clicked ‘OK’, your presentation is all set to loop. You can start the slideshow to test it out and see your handiwork in action.

Continuous Display

By looping your PowerPoint presentation, you ensure that no matter when someone walks by or starts watching, they’ll be able to see the whole thing. It’s ideal for environments where you have a rotating audience, like at conferences or informational booths.

Time-Saving

Once set up, you don’t need to stick around to restart the presentation. It loops automatically, freeing you up to do other things – like interacting with your audience or managing other aspects of your event or meeting.

Professionalism

A self-running, looping presentation can make a statement about your professionalism. It shows that you’ve put thought into how your information is presented and that you’re adept at using technology to enhance your message.

Can be Ignored

When people know a presentation is looping, they might not give it their full attention, thinking they’ll catch the next round. This could mean your message isn’t hitting home as strongly as you’d like.

Technical Issues

Technology isn’t foolproof. If your PowerPoint or the device it’s running on experiences issues, your looping presentation could grind to a halt – often at the most inopportune times.

Repetitiveness

For those who are around for a while, a looping presentation can become like that one song on the radio that’s played too often – annoying. Finding the balance between informative and overkill is key.

Additional Information

PowerPoint’s looping feature might seem simple, but it can be incredibly powerful when used correctly. Think about the last time you walked past a looping video or presentation – it probably caught your eye, at least for a moment. That’s the draw of a looping display; it’s always there, always ready to catch the attention of someone new.

One tip is to ensure your presentation is designed with looping in mind. This means avoiding content that could become quickly dated or using language that implies the presentation is a one-time event. Instead, use evergreen content that will be relevant no matter how many times it’s viewed.

Another consideration is the length of your presentation. If it’s too long, viewers might not stick around for the whole loop, missing out on key information. If it’s too short, it could become annoyingly repetitive. Striking the right balance is essential.

When setting up your looping presentation, think about the context in which it will be viewed. Is it in a noisy trade show hall? Consider adding subtitles or visual cues that can be understood without sound. Is it in a quiet waiting area? Maybe a softer, less attention-grabbing approach is needed.

Remember, the goal of a PowerPoint looping presentation is to inform and engage, not to overwhelm or annoy. Keep your audience’s experience in mind, and you’ll be sure to create a looping presentation that adds value and captures interest.

  • Open your PowerPoint presentation.
  • Click on the ‘Slide Show’ tab.
  • Select ‘Set Up Slide Show’.
  • Choose ‘Loop continuously until ‘Esc”.
  • Save your settings.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if my presentation has videos.

If your presentation contains videos, make sure they’re set to play automatically and check the box ‘Rewind after playing’ to ensure they loop with the rest of the slides.

Can I loop just one section of my presentation?

Yes, you can loop specific sections by using custom shows within PowerPoint. It’s a bit more complex but entirely possible.

Will looping work if I have transition timings set up?

Absolutely. Your slides will transition according to the timings you’ve set, looping back to the beginning when they reach the end.

How do I stop a looping presentation?

Simply press the ‘Esc’ key, and the presentation will stop looping and exit the slideshow view.

Can I loop a presentation on a Mac?

Yes, the steps are the same for PowerPoint on a Mac as they are for Windows.

Mastering PowerPoint looping presentations is like unlocking a new level in your presentation skills. It’s not just about making your slides look pretty; it’s about ensuring your message is always out there, always engaging, and always ready to inform. Whether you’re in the boardroom, at a booth, or in an educational setting, a well-crafted looping PowerPoint can make all the difference.

So go ahead, give it a try – your audience will thank you for it. And remember, the best presentations are those that not only deliver information but do so in a way that’s seamless and ever-present, just like the perfect loop.

How to Make Your Presentations Loop in PowerPoint

You might want to make your presentations loop in PowerPoint for several reasons. Regardless of why, this guide will help.

Microsoft PowerPoint is already a useful productivity tool to deliver slideshows and presentations, but it's even more versatile than you may realize. PowerPoint offers the functionality for your presentations to loop so that the slideshow restarts right after it ends. Read on to find out how to enable this in your project and why such a feature can be immensely useful in a variety of situations.

How to Loop Your Presentations in PowerPoint

As you make your presentation the way you would like for it to be seen, setting your slideshow up to loop is relatively easy. It mainly involves changing a single setting within PowerPoint.

1. Within the Ribbon at the top of the window, click Slide Show . This will take you to a menu of options for displaying and presenting your slide show.

2. Click Set Up Slide Show in the middle Set Up section. This button will open up a pop-up window of detailed, advanced settings for your presentation.

3. In the Set Up Show window, click Loop continuously until 'Esc' in the Show options section.

4. Click OK to apply the change.

5. Preview the presentation using the From Beginning or From Current Slide buttons in the Ribbon to see that the looping works.

As you might notice when you preview the slide show, enabling the setting is only half the battle. While the presentation does return to the first slide after displaying the last one, the slides don't progress on their own. If you want your slides to loop automatically, you'll need to set up transitions between each slide.

How to Automatically Loop Your PowerPoint Slides

1. Select the slide you want to apply the transition to if you haven't already.

2. Click Transitions within the Ribbon. This opens up a variety of options for adding animations when changing from one slide to the next.

3. Choose one of the transitions in the Transition to This Slide section to use with this slide. There are a variety of transition options available, from the subtle to the flashy.

While you can play with each transition to your heart's content, it's not necessarily required; you can stick with the default None option or a simple Fade if you'd like.

4. Navigate to the Timing section on the right-hand side of the Ribbon. In order to automate your loop, you'll need to specify when each slide moves to the next one.

5. Under the Advance Slide heading, click the After: checkbox to enable it.

6. Set a time (in minutes or seconds) by entering one in the text box (currently reading "00:00.00") or the arrow buttons nearby.

7. Repeat this process for the other slides you have. Alternatively, you can click Apply To All to set the current slide's transition settings across every slide in the presentation.

8. When you've applied the transitions you want, you can preview the presentation again using the From Beginning or From Current Slide buttons in the Slide Show tab of the Ribbon.

In the preview, you'll see that the slides now transition automatically, and the loop now works without any further interaction. When you need to leave the presentation, press the Esc (escape) key to return to the normal PowerPoint window.

Why Would You Want to Loop a PowerPoint Presentation?

There are a number of reasons why you'd want to run a PowerPoint presentation in a loop, and thus multiple ways this functionality is useful.

You can create a continuous carousel of photos for gatherings with family and friends or a relaxing slideshow of beaches at the end of a stressful day. You can use it to display important information, like rules or schedules, at conferences or conventions.

The integration with the regular transition timings also allows for specialized use cases where you may need to have certain slides displayed longer than others. For example, it can be used to show menu pricing at a kiosk or on a food truck or to offer some entertainment to people waiting in a long line.

Keep Your PowerPoint Presentation Skills in the Loop

Learning how to loop PowerPoint presentations is just one of the many lesser-noticed features of the widely-used tool that can take your slideshows to a new level.

Functionality like this helps keep PowerPoint a versatile, popular program built for a variety of presenting needs. Now, it's time to put these features to work for you.

How To Loop a PowerPoint: A Step-by-Step Guide

Microsoft PowerPoint is a well-known tool for making and delivering presentations. Do you know how to use the looping feature? This feature makes it easy for presenters to move from slide to slide without having to click a mouse or computer key. Setting up and customizing this feature is simple.

In this article, you will learn the following:

What is PowerPoint looping?

How to set up powerpoint looping, how to stop looping on powerpoint presentations.

Typically, a PowerPoint presentation will only move from one slide to the next when prompted. A presenter will have to press the arrow key on the computer keyboard, right-click on the mouse, or press the button on a hand-held presentation remote in order to move to the next slide.

When you loop a PowerPoint, you set the presentation to move from one slide to the next without being prompted. For presenters, this means that you do not need to click the arrow key on the computer or click a mouse.

PowerPoint looping allows you to display each slide automatically for a certain amount of time, which you determine. Once the slide displays for that set time, the next slide automatically displays. After the final slide of the presentation, the slideshow repeats from the beginning.

To set up looping on a PowerPoint presentation, complete the following steps:

Create your PowerPoint presentation.

In the main menu of your PowerPoint (along the top of the screen), select “Slide Show.”

screenshot-of-the-slide-show-menu-option-in-PowerPoint

Click “Slide Show” to begin customizing your presentation’s display

In the menu that pops up at the top of your screen, select “Set Up Slide Show.”

screenshot-of-"set-up-slide-show"-option-in-PowerPoint

Click “Set Up Slide Show” to begin customizing your presentation’s display

In the box that appears, locate “Show options” and check the box next to “Loop continuously until ‘Esc.’”

set-up-show-options-in-PowerPoint

Check the box next to “Loop continuously until ‘Esc.’”

Click “OK.”

click-ok-to-confirm-show-options-in-PowerPoint

Setting up timing between slides

Microsoft PPT will automatically set your slides to transition every two minutes, but you can easily customize how long you want each slide to display before moving to the next slide.

In the main menu, select “Transitions.”

transitions-menu-option-in-PowerPoint

Click “Transitions”

Select the slide that you want to customize for the display time. If you would like all of the slides to have the same transition time, select all slides instead of just one.

selecting-which-slides-to-apply-looping-times-to-in-PowerPoint

Select the slide for which you want to customize the display time. If you’d like all of the slides to have the same transition time, highlight all slides instead of just one.

In the “Timing” group under “Advance Slide,” check the box next to “After:.”

choosing-the-timing-for-looping-in-Microsoft-PowerPoint

Under “Advance Slide,” check the box next to “After:”

In the box next to “After:,” move the arrows up and down to determine how long you’d like the slides to display.

Once you loop your slideshow, it will display on a loop while you present. To stop this looping, simply press “Esc” on your keyboard. This will end your presentation looping.

Enhancing PowerPoint with graphics

Microsoft PowerPoint is just the beginning when it comes to creating useful presentations. If you would like to enhance the visual aspects of your PowerPoint presentations, consider add-on software that will help create graphics such as timelines, Gantt charts, and more.

Microsoft Loop: Think, Plan and Create Together

Last updated on March 31st, 2024

Microsoft’s ever expanding suite of Microsoft 365 apps continue to provide productivity tools to help enhance the way people work together. Microsoft Loop is one such app, which provides online collaboration options with the support of Copilot , Microsoft’s AI powered orchestration engine.

Microsoft Loop in Action

What is Microsoft Loop?

Microsoft Loop provides workspaces that can be used to collaborate online. You can create independent blocks that can be used for sharing ideas, project planning, tracking progress, discussing PowerPoint presentations, note taking, and more. Many of the features of Microsoft Loop make it an alternative to the freemium Notion software.

Loop is available for Microsoft 365 subscribers. You can use Microsoft Loop for your organization by integrating it with your organizational accounts or use it for personal use for friends and family. Microsoft Loop syncs real-time with other Microsoft apps such as Teams and Outlook. This allows end users to seamlessly collaborate and work across different Microsoft 365 apps by carrying their collaborative workspace for effective task management.

Getting Started with Microsoft Loop

Creating a workspace.

Microsoft Loop can be accessed by Microsoft 365 users via loop.microsoft.com, Android, or iOS apps. You can get started by creating a new workspace.

Getting started with Microsoft Loop

Working with Pages

Within a workspace you can create one or more pages. These pages can be used for adding components.

Example of Microsoft Loop User Interface

A page can have anything from a PowerPoint presentation, Excel spreadsheet, or Word document to polls, tables, checklists, code, etc. For example, you can create a blank page or use a template to start a project brief, discussion for a team decision, plan projects, and create meeting notes. Furthermore, you can also paste a URL to add a page, component, or link within a workspace.

Working with Components

In the workspace you can create new components. A component within a page can include a variety of elements which can even include your files, tables, dividers, images, and content from supported apps. You can also use Copilot Pro to generate content on the fly.

The below example shows how we searched for a PowerPoint presentation from a Microsoft account to include within Loop. Similarly, you can search and include files to instantly embed them in a page to suit your needs, as well as add other elements to craft your Loop.

Collaborating Online

Microsoft Loop is all about collaboration. You can collaborate to think, plan, and create online by inviting others to join your workspace. Loop allows up to 50 people to work on a single workspace simultaneously.

how to loop presentation in powerpoint

Like other Microsoft apps, the Share button at the top enables access to instant sharing options. You can share the complete Workspace, the page link, or copy to embed the Loop component in supported Microsoft 365 apps.

Version History

Loop comes with version history to ensure that you can access older versions of your work to help you go back to older versions to restore. This is essential when there are multiple users involved on an online collaboration project, since important information can often be overwritten or omitted by mistake or the team might choose to switch back to an older version.

how to loop presentation in powerpoint

Microsoft Loop Explained

if you would like to dive deeper into the various features of Microsoft Loop, see the video below that provides an overview of how you can change the way you work using Loop.

Final Words

Microsoft Loop can help power your daily tasks with the support of online collaboration features and AI. By integrating Loop in your daily work routine, you can enable cocreation of content, as you collaborate with your teams, plan and execute tasks, and track your progress. Microsoft Loop can also have a variety of other uses. You can use it as a mind mapping tool, note taking app, a space to share content, and more. Hence, how you integrate Loop in your workflow is entirely up to you, with endless possibilities to think, collaborate, and create.

If you're a content creator looking to take your user-generated content (UGC) game to the next level, you're in the right place. In this post, I'll share my secrets for creating a customized Microsoft PowerPoint pitch deck that will help you connect with brands and businesses like a pro.

Why customization matters

In the booming world of UGC, it's essential to stand out from the crowd. One fantastic way to do this is by creating a tailored pitch deck that showcases your unique skills and style. Customization is key, and I'll walk you through the process using a template from Microsoft Create .

Choose your template

Start with a template so you can hit the ground running with a clean, polished design. Visit Microsoft Create and explore their PowerPoint templates and pitch deck templates . When you find a design you like, download it.

For this tutorial, I used the Light sales pitch presentation template. This sleek and professional template is the perfect starting point for your UGC pitch deck.

Personalize the cover page

First impressions matter, so make sure your cover page is on point. I always include the name of the brand I'm pitching to show that I've created this presentation specifically for them. It's a small detail that goes a long way in demonstrating your dedication and professionalism.

Customize colors and images

Next, it's time to make the template your own. I customize the colors to match my personal brand and incorporate professional photos I've taken myself. This helps the pitch deck feel authentic and shows off my unique style.

Showcase your work

To give brands a taste of what you can do, include a few concept ideas and sample videos you've created in their niche. I like to add multiple pages with videos of my recent work to highlight my skills and experience. Just remember to watermark any videos featuring products that brands haven't purchased yet!

Include testimonials and analytics

Social proof is powerful, so don't be afraid to include testimonials or analytics from your previous high-performing content. This demonstrates your track record of success and helps build trust with potential brand partners.

Five tips for choosing the right PowerPoint template

The design or template you choose can greatly influence the success of your presentation, either capturing your audience’s attention or leaving them disengaged. To make a lasting impression on your audience, utilize these five tips when selecting your PowerPoint presentation template.

How do you choose a template in PowerPoint?

The initial step in creating your PowerPoint presentation is choosing the appropriate design. To effectively select the best PowerPoint template for your presentation, there are several components you should consider. These components include the following:

1. Consider your audience

The first component you should consider is your audience. Is the presentation intended for a formal setting, such as in a business context, or will it be delivered in a more informal gathering? Are the viewers going to review the slides virtually , in-person, or will they be viewing the presentation independently? What are the demographics of your audience? It’s crucial to contemplate your audience before outlining your presentation, as they significantly influence your design choices. For example, if you are delivering a business-oriented presentation, you might choose a more conservative design, while a more informal presentation may call for a bolder and more captivating template.

2. Select a template with appropriate layout options

The layout plays a crucial role in determining how your content is delivered, read, and ultimately comprehended by your audience. When you assess presentation templates, ensure that the layout options align with the nature of your content. Ask yourself, ‘Will this format enhance the readability and comprehension of my content for my audience? Is it the most efficient way to convey my information?

3. Choose a design that fits your style

You’ll feel most comfortable presenting when your presentation feels like yourself. Make you presentation an extension of your personal style and brand, that effectively complements your aesthetic preferences. Whether you prefer minimalism and clean lines or a striking, vibrant presentation filled with animation, select a design that aligns with your style and creates cohesive visuals.

4. Find a template that reflects your message

Outside of aesthetics, your template should reflect the core message of your presentation. If your content is data-heavy, opt for a template with clear charts and graphs. For a storytelling presentation, choose a template that incorporates visuals and storytelling elements. Ensuring your template and message aligns strengthens your presentation’s storytelling .

5. Consider the length of your presentation

The duration of your presentation should be incorporated in your template decision making. Longer presentations may benefit from a clean and organized template that aids in maintaining audience attention. Shorter presentations, on the other hand, provide room for more creative and visually striking templates. Consider the pacing and structure of your content in relation to the template to optimize your audience’s engagement.

The key to an effective PowerPoint presentation template is extensively considering the context of your presentation. Know who your audience is, what your message is, the length of your message, and how the content should be presented. When you consider these elements, you can ensure your presentation will resonate with your audience, with your intended impact.

How to Record PowerPoint Presentation with Audio and Video

Sometimes it is necessary to record not only the sound of the speaker over presentation slides but also their face via a web camera. Learn how to easily do it!

How to record yourself presenting a PowerPoint

The more people work from home, the more online meetings happen. Teams discuss work on projects, put forward their ideas, and share presentations containing essential information. However, problems with the latter can sometimes arise – watching a presentation only might be pretty boring. But this is not the case when the user adds a video recording of them presenting as well.

If you were in such a situation, you may have wondered how to record yourself presenting a PowerPoint slideshow. Actually, with the help of our editing tool, it's not that hard at all! Using it, you can record a web camera video and PowerPoint presentation at the same time on Windows 10 and 11, as well as Mac.

For the rest of the process, follow the steps below:

Start the project

Open Clideo’s Online Video Editor and click "Get started".

Video editor to record presentation with audio and video

To record a presentation and video of yourself at the same time, scroll down the navigation sidebar, click "Record", then "Screen & Camera". If prompted, allow your browser to access your camera and microphone.

Record presentation with audio and video

You can select a specific camera and microphone and turn them on/off in the next pop-up window via the "Gear" icon at the bottom right.

Screen and webcam settings to record presentation

Record the screen

Check that you look fine in the webcam, click the red circle to start a recording session, and select a window with your PPT in the pop-up screen. Then, click "Share" to start presenting.

Start to record presentation with audio and video

Go to the tab with your presentation and do your best. If you return to the Clideo tab, you will see that you cannot move the video window from your camera now, but you can do that while editing your video later.

PowerPoint presentation with audio and video

While recording your presentation, you can at any moment go to the Clideo tab and click the "Pause" button to pause the process, then click it again and go back to the presentation screen to continue the demonstration. To redo the recording and discard the current one, click the "Retake" button to the left.

Stop to record presentation with audio and video

When you are ready to stop and save the recordings, in the Clideo tab, click the "Stop" button or hit the "Stop sharing" button on your presentation screen.

In the next pop-up window, you can review, rename, redo, and add the files to your project timeline or "Uploads". Both cases will add the screen and camera recordings as separate files.

Save presentation with audio and video

After every file is manually or automatically placed on the timeline, you can edit each one by one – just click them and adjust the available settings. Resize the camera recording if necessary, cut out the sections you do not need, or add captions.

Edit presentation with audio and video

When you finish editing, click "Export" at the top right and choose your preferred option.
