Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Step by Step

Animate text and pictures on slides

Here’s a breakdown of the animation effects that are available in PowerPoint 2016:

■ ■ Entrance animations  An object with an animated entrance is not visible when the slide first appears. (It is visible during the development process, but not when you present the slide show.) It then appears on the slide in the manner specified by the entrance effect. Some entrance effects are available in the Animation gallery. They’re illustrated in green, and their icons provide some idea of the movement associated with the effect.

Have fun experimenting with the different effects


Clicking More Entrance Effects at the bottom of the Animation menu opens a dialog box that displays all the available entrance animations by category to help you choose an appropriate effect.
