    Talking PowerPoint Has AMAZING Underutilized Potential !!!!


    TIP # 1

    Did'ya know that PowerPoint files can be uploaded to your Web Server in their Native Format (animations and all) it can have it's own URL and be cached by Google...



    Tip # 2

    If you would like to take a screen shot of a Web Page and either EDIT it -
    or simply add it to a word or powerpoint file -
    here is a technique I have been using for the last SIX years

    1- first bring up the WEB PAGE

    2- Then press "print screen/SysRq" - which is the third button from tne right on the very top of most keyboards /
    Or press "Shift" & "print screen" simultaneously for a full window screenshot

    3- "paste" or "control V" into either "photo editor" " Windows image viewer"
    Word PowerPoint etc.

    4- if you would prefer to make the screen shot One Jpg Gif or Png or Tiff by itself

    5- open PowerPoint first - change the page layout to the size you want the image to be

    6- Paste the image

    7- then "select all" put you cursor on the "connecting lines" Group


    Use both the "control" and "shift" key to RESIZE the image -- then save to trhe desired format

    8- if minor editing is needed you can access the "drawing" and "photo" editing tools that come natively into Word and PowerPoint.


    Tip # 3

    PhotoShop Illustrator FireWorks etc. has impressive text design ability

    However PowerPoint's Word Art has Easy to Use and Superior Design potential that has not been widely publize


    Create Your Text/Design Including any Transparent effects you would like

    Copy & Paste or save as a PNG and import into PhotShop Illustrator etc.

    Resample the 72 dpi into 288 - bicubic- ( A FOUR times increase preserves clarity)

    You will have many options that are not availble in PhotoShop or Illustrator and a much more "perfect" design

    You can do some text art in Word Art using the "Advanced" feature for some special 3d, shadow and shaping effects...

    You can also import photos into the vectorized Word art...

    Additionally, the "line art" or peformed drawings are very very convenient ....

    You can sometimes import the basic artwork into photshop or Quark to further enhance the work by adding their effects...

    Anything can be uploaded in it's native format, but the viewer needs a reader of that native format on his computer to make use of it. Sure, it's okay to "print screen" and use the resulting edited image (as a gif, jpg, or png), but it's not really good practice to expect everybody to have "Power Point" on their machines. I know plenty of people who don't have an Adobe reader. It's always good to offer alternatives. It's bad enough that so many sites have a splash page that tells the user that they need Flash to view it, I would definitely avoid doing a business with a site that says "This site requires Power Point to view."

    1. Powerpoint is part of Microsoft Office, Works, and any other older version you can cook up. Most people have it.

    2. You don't need Powerpoint to view what he's talking about. It exports as a bunch of DHTML.

    And to 5urlcom, it's not a big deal. Powerpoint isn't good for websites. The entire reason for having that feature is so that if you have to send a presentation to others but you aren't having a meeting (or class), then you can send it to others only having to upload it once, and not having to worry if they have powerpoint or not.
