There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who say effects are useless and only waste time, and others, who insist that they are a key part of any PowerPoint presentation.

Transitions used more often than animations, which is why we’re giving you a full in-depth look at all 46 transitions PowerPoint 2013 has to offer.
