How Do I Make a Seesaw Effect in PowerPoint?


PowerPoint allows you to design business, academic and personal slideshows using various visual aids. You can insert pictures, audio files and video clips into your slideshows in order to make a lively presentation for your project. Inserting animation such as a teeter or seesaw effect for some objects in your slideshow can make the demonstration easily understood by your audience.
