People Animation in PowerPoint with Motion Paths
This sample presentation shows you how you can use motion path animations in PowerPoint on ungrouped vector objects to create a very effective introduction or section slide.
In this example, we used a vector image we sourced from iStockphoto -- we wish to thank Tina Riedner from iStockphoto for permission to use this sample vector image to demonstrate this technique.

Denise Then: Holiday Cards with PowerPoint
Liber Rodriguez-FlorezI meet Denise Then at PowerPoint Live each year, and we talk about "snow" -- the fact that she sees snow all around her in Canada, and that I have never seen snow ever -- yes, it does snow in parts of India where I live -- just that I've never seen it yet.
This year, Denise created a simple and personal holiday card using PowerPoint, and she emailed it to me. The card shows all the snow scenes that she can see all the time -- and I requested her permission to share it with all of you. Thanks Denise! .
