Word Clouds (a.k.a. Tag clouds) in PowerPoint are a very powerful and creative way to present your ideas and concepts throughout a presentation. Using word cloud images you can summarize a speech in a few words providing the big picture of a given topic to an audience.
Even if you can create word clouds manually in PowerPoint by arranging text boxes to specific locations and changing the font sizes, if you really care about productivity and want to speed up the design process there are other alternatives we can use to make creative word cloud pictures for PowerPoint presentations.
Using an Online Word Cloud Generator
There are online resources that can be used for word cloud generators. Indeed, the most popular online word cloud generator tool is Wordle.net that let you make beautiful word clouds online and then you can export the word cloud picture to an image.
But, as a PowerPoint user you can also use the new web apps available in newer versions of Microsoft Office 2013.
Using a PowerPoint & Word Add-In
Pro Word Cloud is an App for Office that let you create beautiful word cloud images directly from your text in the PowerPoint editor. It works in PowerPoint 2013 or later but it is also available in Microsoft Word 2013.
To use this add-in in PowerPoint or Word, first you need to open PowerPoint 2013 in your computer.
Go to Insert -> My Apps and then in the Apps for Office box click Featured Apps and enter Pro Word Cloud in the search box. Then click Add below the app thumbnail. If you don’t see it, press Refresh to update the list.
