How to Make Animated Cartoon of Yourself in PowerPoint

In this step-by-step tutorial, learn how to make an animated cartoon of yourself in Microsoft PowerPoint.

Start by using a free add-in called Pixton Cartoon Characters to create an avatar of yourself. You can choose the body type, color, hair, outfit, and the pose.

Pixton remembers what characters you’ve created so you can quickly insert your character again on another slide. Next, we proceed with creating a scene using a free resource called freepik.com, which offers thousands of free illustrations for use in your projects. Lastly, we look at how to animate the scene using the morph transition and a simple teeter animation.
