When designing eLessons, you often have pictures to incorporate. And while it would be great to add some visual interest and effects to those images, you might think it’s not possible without a lot of time and a working knowledge of an expensive software like Photoshop.

It’s time to add some visual interest to your images with a tool you probably already have: PowerPoint. You don’t need a graphic design background or fancy software to produce creative and visually intriguing picture effects.
