Well from the link that EAMejia gave..you can’t fully create the template in photoshop, you can create the objects in photoshop, and the transfer them to your presentation program, and create the text with the presentation program only. Good luck :)

Well as I said in that post, I’ll repeat it again here. I create the basic layout in photoshop first and then export the images from PSD . Then resizing etc. is done in powerpoint. After that text is added and in the end, I make sure that text doesn’t go jaggy if it’s animated.

You should read that whole thread. There is also some information about resolution for backgrounds etc. so it might help out you guys. http://graphicriver.net/forums/thread/powerpoint-templates-any-set-rules/28858

I’ve found this article very useful for my latest designs, and I’m sure this’ll be great for you too:

Some few tips about powerpoint presentations

About the size

  • Set Photoshop to 72 dpi screen resolution and work with this sizes.
  • If your computer is running at a resolution of 1024 pixels wide x 768 pixels tall, then it’s no point having any images with more pixels than this.
  • If you are going to be displaying the image full screen, i.e. occupying the whole page area in powerpoint, then aim for about 1000 pixels wide. Why 1000 and not 1024…it’s easier to remember! Also it doesn’t have to be exactly 1000 pixels, just over or just under, doesn’t really matter.
  • If your particular image is “portrait” e.g. it’s taller than it is wider, then aim for an image that is about 750 pixels tall, or for a half size image about 375 pixels tall.
  • Graphic File Formats

    • PNG
    • The best for powerpoint, why? it does not lose any information and works with all the different numbers of colors (256, 16 bit, 24 bit, grayscale). It’s a Compressed file (smaller filesize, especially 256 color files) widely compatible and the best of all takes very little time to de-compress in powerpoint

    • JPG
    • It’s ok for powerpoint, loses information but you do have control when you save it how much information is lost. Only works with 24 bit colors (16 million) and it’s a highly compressed file (very small files) widely compatible. Takes longer to de-compress in powerpoint than PNG .

    • BMP
    • Still ok for powerpoint, does not lose any information and works with all the different number of colors. Can be compressed but not 24 bit colors. Big cons are very Large files. widely compatible. Very fast to load and display in powerpoint

    • GIF
    • Loses information as it can only have a maximum of 256 colors. Only works with 256 colors at a compressed format state. Still widely compatible and doesn’t take anytime to de-compress as it’s not compressed.

      Well that’s something for you to start learning about presentations. I hope this comes handy for everyone. :)

      Regards, Lucas.
