This tutorial will show you how to create an image for the iSchool’s Sony LED displays using PowerPoint for Mac 2011.  
Let’s open up PowerPoint for Mac and get started.  
The first thing we need to do is adjust the canvas size and file format type.  This is a two-step process.
 First we will go up to File -> Page Set-up.   Then change the width to 25.6 and the height to 14.4 and click ok.  
Then we get this message that says…, Just click OK.    
Notice that our slide got longer.  But we are not done yet.  
Go to File -> Save As Change the File type to JPG  and you can go ahead and name your file.   
Then click on Options.  Make sure that the width x height says 1920 x 1080.
Now we have set up the image so that it is the proper proportions and size for the displays.  
All we have left now is the fun part: designing the image.  
When designing your image, remember that each image is displayed for about ten seconds so Don’t include too much text. And Use large lettering so it can be read from a distance.  
Add high quality images that don’t appear at all blurry.  
You can get more information about the type of content the iSchool would like to display as well as contact information for any questions you might have on the iSchool Wiki.  
The url is wiki.ischool.utexas.edu.  Then you can just search Displays.
