If you want to play music in the background of a slide show and time the slides to fit the music, this course is for you. You'll learn how to make your presentation file smaller and more manageable for sharing, trim a music clip so it fits the length of the slide show, add a fadeout to give a clip a more natural ending, and play a clip for only a particular section of your slides.

Inside this course:

Play audio, such as music or a song, automatically when a slide appears while you’re presenting, and time the slides to fit the music.

You have a slide show that plays using slide timings, and want a music clip to play, but for only one section of the slides. Watch this video to find out more.
