Learning PowerPoint

Do you want to learn more about the small things that make your PowerPoint experience easier. Many subscribers have told me that they want more usability and learning articles. Here are some tutorials:

Hiding and Unhiding Toolbars

Video Backgrounds Released

CrystalGraphics released version 1.3 of their Video Backgrounds Player and 29 new volumes of moving Video Backgrounds content -- both of them are separate products -- do take a look here...

Focus on WildPresenter

If you have used any of the PowerPoint to Flash converter programs, here is something different. Like most other programs WildPresenter, a product from Wildform imports your PowerPoint presentation, but it doesn't export it to Flash straightaway. In fact, it provides an environment not too different from PowerPoint that lets you fine-tune your presentation before you export to Flash. During the process, you can preview your presentations. The Flash output is much smaller than other applications.

In addition, here's an Indezine exclusive -- a quick conversation with Jonathan Blank of Wildform...
