Idea concept build _ Sketch a concept, insert clip art or pictures, and use SmartArt to create a foundational visual... the base visual that you will build upon. Then add additional graphic components directly over the foundational visual. Alternatively you can create consecutive slides where you build increased complexity from the foundational slide so that you show how an idea concept develops and progresses layer_by_layer.
So here are seven ways to visualize your ideas _ your thoughts; what's in your head _ with PowerPoint (or similar) presentation software. Idea Concept Sketch _ Use PowerPoint shapes to sketch your idea. You can draw all kinds of figures and shapes, and add text, directional flow, highlights, and more with arrows and other shapes available in the "Insert Shapes" area. Circles, squares, lines, arrows, and the like can be combined to create drawings that, when grouped together, copied, and pasted as graphics, you can insert into documents, presentations, email and texts or post to social media.
