PowerPoint, Picasa and Videos

This workshop assumes the client has a basic knowledge of Microsoft Office PowerPoint. It looks at how to work with a folder of digital photos to produce a powerpoint presentation or movie.

A PowerPoint photo album is a presentation that you can create to display your personal or business photographs. You can add effects that include attention-grabbing slide transitions, colourful backgrounds, specific layouts, and more. After the pictures are in your album, you can add captions, adjust the order and layout, add frames around the pictures, and even apply a theme to further customize the look of your album.

We consider a Self-Running Presentation which restarts when it reaches the final slide and how this can be used to communicate information without a presenter.

To share your photo album with others, you can send it as an attachment to an e-mail message, publish it to the Web, or print it.

We also look at how to convert the PowerPoint to a Movie file which can be uploaded to You Tube and shared on the World Wide Web.

Picasa is free photo editing software from Google that makes your pictures look great. Together, Picasa & Picasa Web Albums make it easy for you to organize and edit your digital photos, then create online albums to share all over the world.
