#5 How much time should I spend?

Managing your message board comes down to managing how much time you have to spend. However, here’s a list of suggestions to act a guide to your library of growing slides.

Slides to lavish time on:

Holiday Closings, Welcome/Hours, Friends of the Library 

These slides can be made ahead and yes, spend as much time as you can allow to make them attractive. You and your patrons will be seeing them for several years and once completed can be filed away in a Holidays folder. All you will need to do is dust them off, insert the current dates and burn a new MP4.

Slides to create a seasonal template:

On-Going Policies, Museum Passes

Create 1 template and retype monthly:

Monthly Public Activities, Meetings, Book groups

The time spent on these will be to create the first template, then retype information accordingly.

#4 Tweak Away, Mateys!

A picture worth a thousand words is not worth a dime when it’s distorted, washed out, blurry or dull. When we find an image a few things can happen when we work with it. With a few Format Tools you will not be left at the mercy of a less than satisfactory image.

1) Pick larger-sized images:

Once you choose your slide image from Google Images and click on the View Image button, it will appear a certain size on your computer screen. The bigger the better. Small images have less pixels and will enlarge blurry and colorless. Avoid even attempting to work with them as it will be a waste of your time.

2) Squeezed pictures:

A distorted picture is distracting, so when resizing, pull the image from the corners instead of the top, bottom and sides. It’s quicker to delete and paste image again to start over. Don’t forget your Crop tool when an image won’t fit.

3) Image is too light, too dark, too fuzzy:

P3P1Too light/dark:

Go to Corrections, work with the Brightness/Contrast menu. Play your cursor over the choices and the image will change with it.

 

Too fuzzy: P4

Again, go to Corrections. Use the Sharpen/Soften choices. There may be times when you will use a softened image, as when you have text superimposed and the image is a tad too busy.

4) Image still distracts from text:

Background still too busy? Soften the color without losing the image’s sharpness by making it transparent. This has several steps, so to begin, save your image, either to a USB or Desktop.

    1) Go to your blank slide. From Insert, go to Shapes. Draw a rectangle the size of the slide. It will   become a solid blue.

    2) Right-click on image, go to Format Shape. Format Shape menu opens.

    3) Under Fill, click on Picture or Texture Fill. Use Insert picture from File button and download the image you want.

    4) There is a Transparency gauge. Slide it left or right to lighten picture.

5) Create a Transparent Text Box

If you like your picture as is, you can also create a rasptransparent color in your text box. This is an attractive way to sit your type on an image and gives your slide a professional look.

Go to Shape Fill and use the Eyedropper to pick a color from the picture so it will coordinate nicely. Right-click and go to Format Shape. Again, you will see the Transparent gauge. Slide it to the right until you can clearly read your text yet still still the picture underneath.

30-second exercise #4- Prime the Eye with Color:

Google Images; Color Pantone Chart or Watercolor Swatches: Pantone is what printers and designers have used for decades. Don’t focus on specific colors, just click through the different charts.You may feel a bit dizzy with such an array of choices, but this is good. We’re overloading the eyes and creating a shift beyond what your brain is trying to organize. When painters concentrate on mixing colors, colors around them are heightened when they step away from their work.

#3 Please Tell Me Again Why Should We Do This?

Here come our patrons, running late, worried about fines, can’t find their card, what is that book, are the computers full, is the printer working? They are thinking about everything else but your message board. You’re busy too, so it’s fine, believe me, to crank out a simple solid color background and type.

However…

Our message board has the potential of becoming a piece of moving art. Just a simple, beautiful watercolor (public domain, right folks?) with lovely type can give your patron a Moment. It may be unconscious, but it will be in their periphery of senses.

Our senses are wired for pleasure. Art is good for us. Nice art creates delight. Great art suspends time, fills the soul, stirs emotions, and yes, finally lifts your busy mind to another level. You can create something between nice and nirvana for your board in as much time as it takes to do that flat background and text. Try it for no other reason than out of a sense of pride. Your library is one of the great keepers of culture. So come on, let’s give them something to look at. Now how do we do that?

Let us count the ways:

1. Remember you are working with light.  Throw color across a lit screen and it will glow and vibrate. Think stained glass. Texture, rich colors, patterns are heightened and enhanced. Go ahead, be extravagant with your image. Stuck? Start with your favorite time period. Go for their patterns: wallpapers, posters, fabric, paintings, folk art, tile work. woodwork.

2. How do I know I found a good image? It will make you pause and yes, let’s go there: a good image will make you feel something, and when your patron sees it, they will feel something, too.

3. Collect a folder of potential images on your Desktop. There they are, ready when you need them. Time saver. Guess what, when you have several, you will start to see a pattern of your graphic style. Didn’t know you had one, did you? But there it is in that innocent-looking manila folder next to your Brodart Spine label folder.

4. The viewer always looks at the image first, so make it BIG. Don’t be shy. You’re not being charged by the inch. Teeny images make us squint. They tell us they’re not important enough. Sorry writers, the crushing news is that the eye goes to the picture first, so why not give them a beaut? Which leads to:

5. FYI: War & Peace has already been written. These slides are to bring the patron to the desk to ask more questions or to jot down the important info for the program, so keep it simple. If you’re going to write anything outside of the basic info, have one good sentence or 2 short ones. Please don’t go on and on about how the program serves this means or that or what size shoe the speaker wears. I’m putting my size 8s down on this one.

And one more thing: when the eye sees a large block of type, it will still seek out the piece of art. Once again, eye candy wins every time, as millions of highly designed book covers show us. Otherwise, the publishing industry would be saving billions of dollars using plain cardboard covers.

6. Borrow from the Design Gods. Study your newest book covers. You are looking at weeks of thinking, planning and discussion from top designers right within your reach. Pick your 3 favorite and make your own templates. Magazines are also an excellent resource and will also keep you up to date on current design.

Not only are we making a bit of art, but we are also advertising a service. Good advertising is direct and each piece is part of the whole. It’s telling a story, a very basic one, but yes, a story. The beginning is the image, the WHO. The title the main information, the WHAT. The middle is the information, the WHEN and WHERE. The end is the image now looked at with its backstory. When you start adding Animations, you add a time frame- a plot.

What better place to tell a story than in a library?

30-second exercise #3- Prime the Eye with Light:

Google Images, Stained Glass Windows (add contemporary, Tiffany, etc.) This is what the message board is all about. This will shift you into seeing what is happening up there. You don’t have to create slides with the black lines, just see the way the colors come to life. Also notice how some colors are more beautiful than others.

#2 Test Drive That Shiny New Slide

Innumerable things happen between starting a new slide and exporting the final MP4. You go through all that time and trouble and when you finally see it on the big screen your jaw drops, not in admiration but stunned dismay. How did that happen? Who came in and rummaged around on my keyboard with their elbows while I stepped away to help a patron?

Here’s a checklist for your slide after you’ve reached utter perfection. So keep hitting those high notes while I take care of the nuts and bolts for you, because that’s just the kind of gal I am.

Final Slide Checklist:

1. Is your slide the correct size? If you see black bars on either side of your slide, that means your slide is not sized for widescreen 16:9. If you think this is a strong look, fine, but honestly this is empty real estate you could use for more information and delighting your patrons. We could get snippy about it and say those black spaces are taxpayers $ flying out the window, but we won’t. (PP10 users have this as their default, so don’t get mad at them, taxpayers.)

So in PP, click on the Design Tab. All the way to the right you will see Slide Size. Click on that and you will see Standard and Widescreen. Go for the Widescreen. If you don’t see this for whatever reason, you can customize it in the drop-down.

2. What’s the timing? 

Did your patron get to read ALL the words? I have seen a patron, phone at the ready to record an event stalk away, a dark cloud of annoyance fizzling off her head at being left short. And here’s another interesting phenomenon about the message board: Patrons will not say Hey, your slide’s too short. They will accept whatever is up there as if from a totally independent entity. So let’s leave them well-informed and satisfied, shall we?

As you play your finished slide one last time in Play Current Slide, read it aloud. (If in your library, whisper it aloud.) Working on the same slide over and over you begin to assume what is already there. Reading aloud slows your mind to what the patron sees. Then adjust accordingly. Show it to a co-worker. Read their face and take it like the champion message board creator you are. Leave egos at the door, people! We are creating a service for the busy, distracted, preoccupied public.

Another good rule of thumb is to have the slide linger for about 10 seconds. I was once told from 7-10 seconds but honestly, it depends on how much text, animation and graphics you have going on. Just don’t put viewers to sleep either. You will know yourself by that flare of impatience when you feel it’s not turning fast enough. 

3. Which way did it go?

Something’s missing and you can’t find your text, image, border, etc. Go back to your Selection Pane. If you did a lot of layering, bet you dollars to doughnuts one of the eye icons is still closed. Unclick, save, export and you’re good to go. It’s always a good idea to make a Duplicate Slide  to work on so when the creative fever takes over you can always go back to your original idea.

4. Glitter and Vortex and Shred, oh my!

Please, I strongly urge you to pick a transition that goes with the slide. Do you wear two different colored shoes just because they’re in your closet? (OK, forget those dark mornings when you can’t tell navy from black. We’ve all been there, but you get what I’m saying.) The killer transition should not be the focus of your slide. The day will come for you to finally use that wild whacked-out effect that will leave them wide-eyed and breathless. I promise on my Glitteryvortex you will.

Also if you are using similar transitions for a number of slides, check to make sure they have the same timing. It is disconcerting to see some change in a blink and some take (yawn) forever.

30-second Exercise #2- Prime your Eye with Type

Google images, Typography Posters. Scroll away. Absorb.

Now, think about how with text boxes and color, you could recreate some of these amazing graphics. Save one or two favorites to your folder. Build a template from them.

Recommended Reading:

These are to get your graphic senses flowing- shake your eye up a bit.

An Illustrated Life by Danny Gregory. Just flipping through this book will widen your thinking about space, art and writing from an illustrator’s point of view. Remember, the image is what carries your slide first and foremost.

Big Book of Fashion Illustration by Martin Dawber. Nope, it’s not about the clothes. Look at the dynamic drawing, color, line and use of the page. Some wonderful stuff.

#1. Create a Message Board Toolbox Tab in PowerPoint 13

Hunting and pecking throughout the PP tabs can be time-consuming. At our June workshop, Sarah Ward from Norfolk Library offered the great tip on how to add miniature buttons to the Customize Quick Access Toolbar. Great for you eagle-eyed 20/20s out there, but after a week of squinting a la Clint Eastwood wondered if there a way to make the icons larger and yes, there is. By creating a new tab in PP we can customize it with all the artistic bells and whistles for your slides, and in an easy-to-read size. Let’s leave the squinting to Clint. It looks better on him, anyway.

This takes about 30 minutes to set up.

To get started, open your PowerPoint.

1) To Create Tab: Right-click on any blank space in the HOME ribbon.

2) In the drop-down menu, click on Customize the Ribbon.

3) The PowerPoint Options box opens and Customize Ribbon is highlighted.

     In the right-hand column, click on New Tab button.

Highlight this and then click on Rename… button.

Type MESSAGE BOARD TOOLBOX. Hit OK.

4) Highlight. Beneath this add 7 New Group tabs. Label with the following:

Basics    Where the Magic Happens    Text Box    Font    Font Fun     Front/Back     Slideshow

In the left-hand column, change Popular Commands to All Commands. This is similar to adding and removing programs in Windows. Here you will add the buttons of your choice under the corresponding tab. These are my choice of buttons, so of course, please customize to suit your own needs.

Now, let’s load it up:

BASICS: Paste, Undo, Selection Pane, Duplicate Slide

WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS: Shapes, Eyedropper, More Colors, Crop, Shape Fill, Remove Background, Color Corrections, Artistic Effects, Effects

TEXT BOX: Text Box

FONT: Font, Font Size, Increase Font, Decrease Font

FONT FUN: Word Art, Text Effects, Font Color

FRONT/BACK: Bring Forward, Bring to Front, Send Backward, Send to Back

SLIDESHOW: From Current Slide.

This is an amazing amount of design tools to fit on a ribbon and will still read clearly and be there for you from start to finish. I left the Animation and Transition tabs where they were, as they have their own set of tools, but again, add and delete what you need.

30-second exercise #1: Prime the Eye with Textures

In our library work we constantly stare at lines of information on the screen and as you squeeze in time to work on your next slide you may unconsciously approach it with this same mindset.

This 30-second exercise refocuses and ‘clears’ how you see. It will also help in researching images for future slides. Nature is one of our best teachers for form, texture, color and scale and this is a quick and easy way to shift gears.

Go to Google Images: Type in Natural Textures, then choose Nature.

Now scroll away. Some of these will make beautiful backgrounds for slides, too. The message board plays up textures beautifully, so take advantage of this aspect of your TV screen. Take it further- fish, shell, animal, flower petal, whatever you like. Found a favorite category? Please share.
