To add some spirit to your presentation, you can add an animation effect to a picture or to shapes on your slides.

In this example, we’ll animate two pictures:

  1. Select the first picture.

  2. On the Animations tab, select an animation effect. For example, select Fly In.

    Pick an animation effect

  3. Click Effect Options, and then pick a direction for the animation. For example, From Left.

    Click Effect Options

  4. Select the second picture that you want to animate.

  5. On the Animations tab, pick Fly In.

  6. Click Effect Options and pick From Right.

    Tip: You can change the order of the animations by selecting a picture and, under Reorder Animation on the ribbon, clicking Move Earlier or Move Later.

  7. To test the animations you just applied to the two pictures, select the Slide Show button located at the bottom-right corner of the browser window:

  8. In slide show view, click a slide to start each animation.

    Tip: To remove an animation effect, in Normal view, select the picture, and on the Animations tab, click None.
