This article by Robert Lane and Andre Vlcek explains why including pictures in presentations is a simple and powerful way of expanding your expressive potential as a speaker. Pictures communicate at levels beyond the descriptive possibilities of words and bathe the brain in much desired visual stimulation. At the same time, not all pictures are created equally.

Spring cleaning my computer hard disk is something that cannot get over in just one season -- the time factor aside, I need to decide what to do with all the stuff I save. A case in point is this small walkthrough of PowerPoint 3 that I made years ago using TechSmith's Camtasia Studio 2. It was a retrospective thing when I made it, it's even more of a retrospective now! So I uploaded this to the Community Clips section of Microsoft's Office Online, and embedded it on this page in Indezine's Memorabilia section.

This tutorial shows you how you can group slide objects in PowerPoint 2007 and higher with regular Ribbon tab controls, right-click options, and shortcut keys. When you have many (or more than one) slide objects on a slide that you want to manipulate in the same way, you might want to consider grouping them. Grouping can be helpful in many scenarios.
How does one create logical collections of PowerPoint presentations, photos, document files, music tracks, and video files in one place, and will this collection be easy to maintain and share? That's a challenge we all face each day. Take an iPod for example -- it comes with iTunes that allows you to make some sense of your huge music collection by creating manual and intelligent playlists so that they can be plated in an organized, arranged, and presequenced manner. Freepath, the product which I am reviewing tackles many of these challenges by extending the playlist metaphor to all your document and media formats, including all the formats discussed in the preceding paragraph. In addition, it also tackles QuickTime movies, YouTube videos, and live websites.

When you have many (or more than one) slide objects on a slide that you want to manipulate in the same way, you might want to consider grouping them. Grouping can be helpful in the several scenarios: You want to animate several slide objects at the same time as a single object, or you have too many objects on the slide, and want them all grouped so that you don't have to select them individually all the time, or maybe you just like to have all objects on your slide organized.
As far as possible, work with a presentation that has been saved at least once; then copy any movie/video file you want to insert to the same folder as the presentation. Thereafter, follow these steps to insert a movie clip in PowerPoint 2007.

You need to re-order your animations mainly because you might have more than one animated object on a slide, and you discover that some re-sequencing of animations as they happen in relation to each other may provide a better result. For something of this sort, PowerPoint provides a Re-order option that lets you play with the sequence of the animation.
Before you start with removing an animation, there is something you need to decide. Do you want to remove both the animation and the slide object that is animated? Or do you want to just remove the animation, and let the slide object be? Or maybe you don't want to remove the animation or the slide object -- you just want to change the animation?
