Impress your audience using effects for hiding and replacing elements in Genially

We’re sure that, more than once, you’ve felt like going beyond what can be seen with the naked eye. And of course we know that’s not always possible, but if you use Genially it becomes a little easier: reveal and hide from your audience all the information you want by using the “hide” and “replace” image effects. Do you want to know how? Keep reading!

For this tutorial we’re going to use the template “Top 10 TV shows”, available on the “Infographics” section in Genially.

As you can see, all the pictures are colour images at first, and gradually they start turning black and white. However, when we mouse over them we can see how they turn into colour images back again thanks to the “black&white to colour” effect.

If we want to get this amazing result, we just have to:

  1. Crop the picture with the desired dimensions. Remember that you can use Genially’s “Crop” tool to do that.
  2. Once all our pictures are prepared, we need to layout them inGenially.
  3. Next step is adding effects to the pictures, like the fade-in effect “appear” and “black&white to colour” from the “Animations” panel.

We will get the result we’ve seen before automatically. There’s also the possibility to do it the other way round: using the “colour to black&white” effect instead of the “black&white to colour” one.

Tip: the “hide” effect is also useful if you want to place some text or other elements behind the pictures and make them visible only when mousing-over. You will feel like hunting for a treasure! If you want to see a good example of this, take a look at this genially of 2015’s best photographs:

From now on, you will be the Master of Secrets and your audience will always be amazed.
