Hotspots are hyperlinks within your PowerPoint presentations. Rather than adding text or buttons, you can make an image a link directly for a more stylish and professional looking presentation. In Nicky’s example above, you’ll not only find out how to add a hotspot into your presentation, but how to create several hotspots within a single image. These could be used when adding a graph or chart to a presentation, linking to additional information.
