I'm curious how scientists make such pretty presentations. I've used Microsoft Powerpoint for all of my presentations since middle school. But my powerpoints lack the style I notice in many academic presentations. There seems to be a standard format on which I am missing out. See, for example: http://theory.caltech.edu/~chan/documents/2012_10_Caltech_slides_only.pdf Google around, and you'll find this exact style everywhere. Is there software that everyone is using? Should I download a standard powerpoint template? Thanks in advance.
