PowerPoint - Add Transitions Between Slides

Slide transitions are the animation-like effects that happen when you move from one slide to the next during a presentation. Add slide transitions to bring your presentation to life.

Add a transition to a slide

  1. Select a slide.

  2. Select the Transitions tab, and then choose a transition in the Transition gallery.

    After you choose a transition, you'll see a preview of how it will look.

  3. To change how the transition looks, select Effect Options.

    Note: Not every transition has effect options.

  4. To speed up or slow down the transition, change the number in the Duration box.

    Tip: To see your changes in action, select Preview.

  5. To add a sound, choose one in the Sound box.

  6. To make your presentation automatically go to the next slide after a certain amount of time, select the After checkbox, and enter the time you want.

  7. To add this transition to all slides, select Apply to All.

Change or remove a transition

  • Select Transitions > None.

    If you'd like to remove all transitions from your slide, select Transitions > None > Apply to All.
