Collection of tutorials on presenting and presentation technologies.
Adobe Illustrator is among the best drawing programs out there -- but it still has its limitations. One such area is symmetrical patterns -- although Illustrator can rise to the occasion, most symmetrical work has to be done manually which is rather time consuming and certainly not intuitive. Artlandia's SymmetryWorks plug-in for Illustrator, now in version 4 changes all that in ways you probably never imagined -- read more to learn how.
Some presentation slides do convey so much more than others. More often than not, these are same slides that are simple and visual at the same time....fortunately, vendors like PowerFrameworks makes it easier for you to access such visuals.
If you thought that it was too difficult or technical an endeavor to create CD/DVD interfaces with an autorun feature, then you should check out Autorun MAX, the product that I am reviewing. Also, if you are graphically challenged, you'll want to explore this product.
The easiest way to convert the DAT movie files within a VideoCD disc to a common movie file format like MPEG is to use a free application called VCDGear.
A CD interface typically launches itself in conjunction with an autorun feature -- most of us has seen the ubiquitous autorun CD/DVD which plays automatically as soon as it is placed in your computer's optical drive. If you want a quick and professional way to create those interfaces, then you'll love AutoPlay Media Studio 6 from Indigo Rose.
AKVIS Decorator, a Photoshop plug-in from AKVIS allows you to change the surface of a selected object easily with results that look very real. A self contained library includes a plethora of patterns that you can apply.
Sometime ago, I did a review on SmartDraw 2007 -- this review is on SmartDraw 2007's Healthcare edition. This is a separate version of the same product that's aimed at healthcare professionals like doctors, pharmacists, hospital staff, laboratories, etc.
PowerPoint transitions can be so cool -- it's essentially a moving, animated effect that metamorphoses one slide to another over a period of time. PowerPoint itself has plenty of inbuilt transitions -- and volume 7 of PowerPlugs Transitions from CrystalGraphics, which I am reviewing now adds an impressive library of new transition styles.
There are plenty of illustration programs out there, but Xara's new Xtreme Pro is different. For starters, it is blazing fast, easy to use, and does much more than illustration. It also doesn't cost too much, and we'll explore some possibilities with the product in this review.
Getting the right kind of music for the presentation in terms of duration, quality, availability and copyright is very important -- Opuzz, the music service that we are reviewing on this page can help you attain this objective.
Coloring a black and white image is no easy task, although it is possible to do this manually within almost all the image editing applications such as Adobe Photoshop. Coloriage is a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop from AKVIS which makes this task much easier.

The new ribbon tabs in Office 2007 change dynamically depending upon what task you are doing -- yet unlike the old toolbars of pre-Office 2007 applications, there's no way you can create a new ribbon tab in PowerPoint 2007? That's not entirely true though sine you can actually create and edit the ribbon tabs in PowerPoint and other Office 2007 applications using a third-party add-in called RibbonCustomizer.
