* The template uses a light text on a dark background. This is because slide presentations are usually shown on a projector, and having a light-colored background can be overwhelming since it physically sends a lot more light to the viewer than a darker background. Sticking with light text on a dark background rather than vice-versa should make for a more pleasant viewing experience.

== Other Research ==
 
 
You'll note that [http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Logo/UsageGuidelines the currently-listed Fedora slide templates] have an assortment of issues. Many are specific to a particular version of Fedora, thus many use out-dated graphics. A few also actually don't comply with the [http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Logo/UsageGuidelines Fedora logo usage guidelines]. Others simply don't match the Fedora branding with their color choices, or don't even tie in the Fedora branding at all.
 
 
You may want to reach out to Fedora ambassadors and other folks in the Fedora community to get their feedback on the templates they use as inspiration for how to make your template super-awesome.
 
 
== Working with OpenOffice.org ==
 
 
To get started with this project, you'll want to [[Media:fedora-designninja-basetemplate-presentation.otp | download the base presentation template]] and open it up in OpenOffice.org.
 
 
The first thing you'll want to do if you want to change the basic colors and fonts and other visual properties of the items in the sample slides is to open up the '''"Styles and Formatting"''' dialog in OpenOffice.org Impress. You can do that by hitting the F11 key or checking the '''"Styles and Formatting"''' item in the '''"Format'''" menu on the main toolbar in OpenOffice.org Impress. It looks like this:
 
 
[[Media:ooimpress-stylesformatting-ss.png]]
 
 
To change a color or a font, right-click a particular 'style' and select 'Modify'. You want to be careful about *not* applying styles to individual items in the slide, because that won't affect the whole slide show the way doing so in the Styles & Formatting dialog does. Rather, create a style, then apply it to items in the slide. This is so folks using your template won't have to pick fonts and colors - they will just work, because you picked those using the style system.

Fedora Presentation Template

You may download the Fedora Presentation template below:

Download the Fedora Presentation Template OpenOffice.org OTP File

This was designed by Emily Dirsh of the Fedora Design Team.

There is also an unbranded version of the template available under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license. The following points are also applicable to the unbranded version.

Some points to note up-front:

  • The template uses a light text on a dark background. This is because slide presentations are usually shown on a projector, and having a light-colored background can be overwhelming since it physically sends a lot more light to the viewer than a darker background. Sticking with light text on a dark background rather than vice-versa should make for a more pleasant viewing experience.
  • What counts as a 'title', and what counts as 'body text' is sometimes confusing. The presentation title and slide titles are definitely titles, and bullet points are definitely body text. Beyond that is up to you.
  • This template is meant to span multiple releases, so we've avoided tying the template to a specific Fedora release.

Some points slide-by-slide:

Title Slide

Fedora-slide-template title-slide base.png

  • This slide is left up on-screen before the speaker starts, so it may be visible for a while.
  • There's room for both a presentation title and subtitle
  • The presenter's name is given a space, and beneath there are fields for their job title / affiliation / background
  • In the lower left there is a spot for the presenter to indicate the license of their slides

Topic Overview

Fedora-slide-template topic-overview base.png

  • Today's topics is a bulleted list of all the topics covered in the presentation - like a table of contents

Topic Splash

Fedora-slide-template topic-splash base.png

  • Before each topic in the presentation is covered, there's a slide to indicate the title of the topic that is about to start, centered and in a large size font.

Topic Details

Fedora-slide-template topic-details base.png

  • This slide represents the meat of a topic in the presentation.
  • These slides might have pictures, bullet points, flat text descriptions, diagrams - pretty much anything.

Summary

Fedora-slide-template summary base.png

  • This slide serves as a quick run-down of all topics covered to summarize the speaker's points.

Questions Slide

Fedora-slide-template questions base.png

  • This slide is left up on-screen while the speaker handles questions, so it will be up for a while.
  • The speaker's contact information is displayed in the lower left.
  • The slide license details are displayed again in the lower left.

Inspiration

When adding your own slides as you customize this template for your presentation, please feel free to be as creative as you'd like! Don't feel restricted by the slide template - it is provided to you as an aid, not to restrictyour creativity. You can customize your slide deck with illustrations, innovative layouts - let your creativity go wild, and feel free to ask the Fedora Design team for assistance with any graphics you need developed for your presentation.
