Transcript

In this video, you will make your image interactive by linking the shapes you drew to new slides.

Adding links to the image allows the viewer to choose a location to explore, rather than having to go through a presentation in a set order.

To begin, choose a layout for the rest of the slides in your presentation.

Select a layout that allows you to add a title and text.

Update the title of the new slide with the name of one part on your image.

For example, if your place is a region, use the names of the countries for each slide.

Or if your place includes states, then use the names of the states.

Return to the image slide and select the shape that matches the name on the new slide.

Then, insert a hyperlink.

Select the slide that corresponds to the place on your image.

By linking the image to the slide, a viewer will be able to click on the shape and jump to a slide with more information.

Test your link.

Repeat for all the regions on the image.

Now, it’s your turn: Add a new slide, Update the title of the slide, Select matching shape on image, Create a link from the polyline shape to the new slide, And repeat this process for all the shapes on the image.
