Animate Text and Objects in PowerPoint

Liven Up Your Presentations

PowerPoint presentations can be static and uninspiring, but they don't have to be. By animating text and objects, you can add visual interest, clarity, and impact to your slides.

You can animate almost anything in PowerPoint, including text, pictures, shapes, tables, SmartArt graphics, and other objects. To get started, simply select the object you wish to animate and go to the Animations tab.

Types of Animations

PowerPoint offers a wide variety of animation effects, grouped into four categories:

  • Entrance animations bring an object onto the slide.
  • Emphasis animations highlight an object already on the slide.
  • Exit animations remove an object from the slide.
  • Motion paths allow you to move an object along a defined path.


With a few simple steps, you can add animations to your PowerPoint presentations that will engage your audience and make your messages more memorable. Whether you're presenting to clients, colleagues, or students, animations can help you create a more effective and memorable presentation.
