Presenter mode in PowerPoint 2013
When you’re delivering a slide show, your local screen shows this touch-friendly view, with the audience seeing only your slides. Speaker notes and a preview of the next slide appear on the right to help keep you on track.
Add pictures from local or online sources
Clicking Online Pictures (on the Insert tab) displays this nifty new set of options in PowerPoint 2013. You can search for an image or select from an online photo service that’s connected to your Office account: in this case, I have easy access to photos from Flickr and SkyDrive.
Variants let you customize stock themes
The trouble with out-of-the-box stock themes is that they make your presentation look just like every other slide show using that theme. The new Variants options on the PowerPoint Design tab let you mix colors and other design elements to avoid that me-too look.
