Working with New Design Elements

Several new features in PowerPoint 2007 relate to how graphics are displayed and created. Galleries of graphic elements help you browse through different styles and preview how each will look in your presentation. Themes and Quick Styles are designed to give your presentation a cohesive and consistent look with predesigned combinations of colors, graphics, and fonts. Finally, SmartArt is a new feature that allows you to easily create various types of diagrams and add text to them.
