PowerPoint Grow Shrink Animation for Emphasis

Draw attention to small elements on a slide by growing them with a simple zoom animation.

In this example, a very small text box that says “The Little Things” is the most important element, but it’s easy to miss when viewing the presentation with a projector. We’ll add a simple Grow Shrink animation to draw attention to it.
