How to control when an image is displayed in PowerPoint

Animating objects in your PowerPoint presentation, when run correctly, lets you control the speed at which you give information to your audience. We showed you how to hide an object in PowerPoint. Now let's look at the different ways to make an object appear.

Animate Your Objects

We'll go over how to set the start time and the speed of an animation, but first we'll have to decide what kind of animation we want to give to our objects.

If you have not pasted an image into your presentation, do it now by going to the Insert tab and clicking Images. Button.

 Insert an image in PPT

Go ahead and position the image in the desired location and apply the desired formatting. Then, with the image selected, go to the Animations tab.


The most commonly used animations appear directly on the Ribbon. Click on one to use it.

 Fade Animation

If you can not find one you like, click the small down arrow at the bottom right of the animations to see the full list. [19659004]

The drop-down menu displays many more animations that you can use. For more information, click one of the options under "More Options" at the bottom of the menu. PowerPoint offers a lot of animations.

Here we use a simple fade animation for our example, but the same techniques apply regardless of your choice. When you have selected your animation, a number appears at the top left of the object. This number indicates the order in which the object appears on the slide if you have more than one animation. In this example, we only have one object with an animation. Therefore, only the number "1" is displayed.

 1 Animation

Now when we play our presentation, the image will appear after you click with the mouse (this is the default method for starting an animation, but more on that later).

If we insert another image into the mix and give it In an animation, the number "2" appears next to it, which means that it is the second object on that the slide is displayed. Let's try it On the second picture we select the animation "Float In".

Now the number 2 is displayed next to the object.

 2 Animations

And this is how it looks in the actual presentation.

Pretty neat, right? As you can see, you can control which image first and how it appears in the presentation.

You can also apply multiple animations to a single object. This is handy for all sorts of things. You can use multiple animations to enhance the accent, or you can make an object appear on the slide and disappear before proceeding.

In this example, we let an object appear and then give it an extra emphasis.

First, select the object, and then go to the Animations tab. Click on the "Add animation" button this time. You must select the animations if you want to apply multiple animations.

 Add Animations

When this option is selected, a drop-down menu will appear. We have already shown you an advanced animation drop-down list. We have already applied the fade animation to our object, so this time we will select the "Teeter" animation from the "Emphasis" section.


Next to the object, both the number 1 and the number 2 are displayed, indicating the order in which the animations take place.

This is what it looks like in action. First it fades in, and then it wavers a bit.

Now that you've understood how to use animations, let's talk about how to control the timing.

animation start time and speed

There are three options for starting the animation:

  • On Click: This will start the animation when you click with the mouse. This is also the standard trigger.
  • With Previous: This causes the object animation to fire at the same time as the previous animation.
  • After Previous: This will start the animation after the last animation has finished. 19659040] To find these settings, select the object to be animated, go to the Animations tab, and then click the box next to Start.

     Startup Options

    Select the desired startup option from the drop-down menu.

    You can also set a duration for the animation. If you change the duration, the animation will slow down or speed up. If you For example, if an object is flying in from the left, but flying in a bit too fast, you can increase the duration to slow it down.

     Image Duration [19659004] You can also add a delay that occurs before the animation begins. This delay depends on which startup setting you are using. For example, if your startup setting is "On Click" and you have a two second delay, the animation will start two seconds after you click. If you have selected "After Previous" as the startup setting and have a delay of five seconds, the animation will start five seconds after the end of the previous animation.

     Delay Animations

    The options available for editing how and when objects appear are almost infinite. Play a bit with these features and you will make a great presentation in no time!
