Slides that snap from one to the next can be jarring to an audience. If you want the pace of your presentation to feel more controlled and flowing, add transitions between slides. Everything you need is on the Transitions tab.
Add a transition to a slide
In the Thumbnail Pane, click the slide that you want to apply a transition to. The transition setting determines how a slide enters, and how the one before it exits. In the example below, applying a Fade transition to slide 3 means that slide 2 fades out, and slide 3 fades in.
On the Transitions tab, find the effect that you want in the Transition gallery. Click the down arrow to see the entire gallery. Click the effect that you want for that slide and to see a preview.
Click Transitions > Effect Options to change how the transition occurs – for example, what direction the slide enters from.
Enter a time at Duration to set how fast the transition goes. Set the number higher to make the transition go slower.
Click Preview to see what the transition looks like with all the settings.
Tip: If you want all slides in the presentation to transition the same way, click Apply To All in the ribbon.
Remove a transition
Click the slide with the transition you want to remove. Then on the Transitions tab, in the Transitions gallery, click None.
Remember that a transition determines how a slide enters, and how the previous slide exits. So if (for example) you don't want slide 2 to have an exit effect, you must remove the transition from slide 3.
Tip: You can tell which slides have a transition effect applied by looking for the transition icon in the Thumbnail pane.
