Thank you guys for the reply! I will definitely check out screenflow, that looks nice. I tried saving with quicktime, but unfortunately in powerpoint it doesn’t save the animations in the video for some stupid reason :/

Thanks slidehack, I will look into that cool idea for promotion!

Recently I have started making Powerpoint Templates.

I have struggled with a few things while working and am looking for some insight.

1. What software do you use to record your screen? (on mac)

I tried screenr and it gives me an error saying it can’t upload. I also tried quicktime, but the video is terribly glitchy and also is inverted.

2. When designing a powerpoint for multiple sizes and colors, how do you recolor it?

I recolored this slideshow by hand for every single size. Is there an easier way? Or do you just have to do each size (4:3 and 16:9) by hand?

3. Finally, now that I have a powerpoint template up, I am wondering, how do you promote/market them?

I use sites like Behance and Deviantart, but if you guys have any more tips that’d be awesome.

Any insight from any author would be sweet, maybe this could be a common thread for all powerpoint designers to add questions and/or answers?

I am thankful for all the wonderful people I’ve met through the Envato Marketplaces and all the new opportunities it provided for me. Most places don’t offer this much flexibility and accessibility and I am so thankful that I can express my creativity and learn wonderful new things everyday when I am on Envato.

I am also thankful for tacos.

It looks like a few things. They probably bumped up the contrast and used the curves tool to lighten/darken certain things. I would assume they also could have used exposure to do that. Aside from that, it seems pretty similar.

Usually when I design or work on writing I can work for a solid 3 hours before becoming too easily distracted.

I normally take a 10-20 minute break going out for a run or playing basketball, then return.

I like Advanced Photoshop because they have featured me a few times :) But I also love wired magazine, fastcompany, and forbes. They have great articles on marketing, design, and technology!
