As soon as you have more than 3-4 slides in a presentation, you will benefit from creating and using a template – even if you are not creating a corporate template to be used by multiple users. Spending time on a template will actually save you time.
The main reasons you need a template even for your SlideShare presentation:
- You can change your fonts easily if you want to go from a more strict feeling to something more fun – and you can quickly try out different font combos.
- You can change the whole color theme with one click. Maybe those blues you choose initially actually feels too… blue? One click and you’ve have a new set of colors.
- You can change your mind about your layouts and quickly multi-edit several slides at the same time.
