You can create 35 millimeter (mm) slides by using a desktop film recorder or by creating a file for a service bureau. A service bureau can transform your electronic slides into 35 mm slides. This article lists several items to keep in mind when you create a presentation that you intend to turn into 35 mm slides.
When you create a presentation that you intend to turn into 35 mm slides, keep the following items in mind:
- Set the page layout to 35 mm before you create your presentation. See the "Changing Page Layout" section later in this article.
- Avoid using pattern fills with contrasting colors. If you use pattern fills with contrasting colors, your images may contain horizontal white lines in the filled object or background.
- Avoid using the diagonal and center burst gradient fills, especially when they have extreme color ranges such as red to yellow. Some film recorders may not be able to render the fill correctly, causing a "block-shaped" or "jagged" pattern in the fill.
- Avoid using custom texture fills that exhibit the problems noted in items 2 and 3 above.
- Avoid using bitmaps that have multiple color changes in small regions of the image. They may not render correctly.
Changing Page Layout
To change the page layout, follow these steps:
- On the File menu, click Page Setup.
- In the Slides Sized For list, click 35 mm.
- Click OK.
NOTE: Make sure that all the text and graphics in your slide are at least 1/2 inch (or 1 centimeter) from the edge of the slide (as measured by the PowerPoint rulers) to avoid being hidden due to irregularities in slide mounting.
