  15. 15. ...because it is really hard to read if you don’t include some kind of boundary to buffer the image
  16. 16. Use fancy graphics sparingly in scientific presentations though - black & white is more appropriate. However, for informational or business presentations, this can be helpful
  17. 17. Clutter • Every word you say should not be on the slide.
