Incorporating colours, images and textures in your presentation like a professional designer

Are you preparing a presentation for your company, business, school or another purpose? and unsure about using colours, textures and images in your presentation like a professional presentation designer, then you have found the right blog. In this blog, we will provide clear advice on how to incorporate Pictures, colours and texture in your upcoming presentation on your own.

Use of images in presentation

Incorporating images, symbols, and infographics in presentations is crucial for attracting your audience because people like to see visual images and other visuals rather than reading text.

Look at the contents/text of your slide and then pick an image that can clarify the words of that slide to a user without having to read the entire thing, if not 100%, at least 80%.

The viewer should be able to understand the slide contents/text simply by glancing at the image. The graphics or images need to be placed to complement the text and the overall slide structure. Check out this presentation for a practical example of how we have used photos in presentations.

Important tip:

Avoid using images from Google images or copyrighted images from other websites. You can find high-quality free stock images on Pixabay, Unsplash, Freepik and pexels to use in your presentation.

Use of colours in visual presentation

Picking a colour for your presentation is like picking the right outfit, If you are a businessman or company owner with a corporate brand, then we recommend using those colours. If that’s not the case for you then when choosing colours for your presentation, think about what you want your audience to feel and make sure you use the same colours throughout the presentation to keep everything looks clean and professional.

Use of colours and textures in visual presentation!

Texture in a presentation is like the special effects in a movie. They make your slides look more interesting. The texture is the background style of your slides. You could go for a smooth professional look or something like a paper texture for a crafty or educational topic presentation. 

Tip 1:

Do not overuse the texture in your presentation slides it can make them look like the main contents.

Tip 2:

Make sure the texture you using in your presentation aligns well with your presentation colours.

Tip 3:
