Camtasia Creates Movies From PowerPoint

September 14, 2004

Steven Brier

In December 2002, Steven Brier of Practical Growth mailed me to ask for some live support for distribution of a PowerPoint media creation.

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book! Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
