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.
Composite photos _ These are photos with text or other graphics superimposed on the photo. I do this a lot with the quotations I post on social media and put into my newsletters. Import a photo into PowerPoint and expand it as large as you can on a slide. "Insert Shapes" and insert a text box onto the slide over the photo. Type the text you want to superimpose onto the photo and set the text color so that it contrasts nicely with the photo as background. Group the components and you have a composite photo.
