Learn PowerPoint 2007 and 2010: Changing Color for Negative Data Series in Charts

April 08, 2010

Although I mention that this tutorial works for both PowerPoint 2007 and 2010, the actual techniques work only within PowerPoint 2010. The reason why this does not work well within PowerPoint 2007 is because that version had no option for pattern fills -- however if you work within PowerPoint 2010 using the procedure outlined on this page, you'll find that any changes you make show up in PowerPoint 2007 as well.

AnyBizSoft PDF to PowerPoint Converter 2.0: The Indezine Review

April 07, 2010

If you have ever ended up with a PDF copy of an important presentation, only to know that the original PowerPoint file no longer exists -- then you know that's not a very happy state of affairs! And although there are umpteen PowerPoint to PDF converters available -- in fact the new versions of PowerPoint have this capability built-in, the reverse option of creating editable PowerPoint presentations from any such PDFs is not a simple affair. Our review product, PDF to PowerPoint Converter 2.0 claims to make any such reverse engineering easy and simple -- so the question is how does it fare?

Learn PowerPoint 2007 and 2010: Chart Styles

April 06, 2010

Long time PowerPoint users will remember the difficulties of charting -- it was so painful, time-consuming, and repetitive a task changing the fills of all the series one after the other -- and if your presentation had more than one chart slide, then you also had to ensure that all charts looked the same. PowerPoint 2007 and 2010 make this sort of repetitive formatting easy and consistent with the Chart Styles option.

Learn PowerPoint 2007: Changing Fill and Border of Charts

April 05, 2010

Although the default fill and border (outline) that PowerPoint 2007 applies to charts may be perfectly adequate, you might want to play with the Chart Styles found in the Chart Tools Design tab of the Ribbon -- all these Styles are based on the Office Theme you have applied to the active presentation, and while this works great most of the time, there will be occasions when you may want to use a color for any of your data series that's not part of the Theme palette in your presentation. In times like these, you can control the fill and border of chart elements using the techniques explained on this page.

PowerPoint Design: Quotation Slides

April 03, 2010

Quotation Slide

One of the strangest things I have found in PowerPoint land is how people create quotation slides -- by default no version of PowerPoint has had a separate layout for quotation slides, and so most people just use the default text and bullet layout for quotation slides. Yes, they do make some small changes on the slides such as removing the bullets, and some adventurous folks may also play with the text treatment -- but don't expect any fancy quotation graphics or any changes in the slide layout.

Learn PowerPoint 2007: Changing Chart Types in PowerPoint 2007

April 03, 2010

Although charts in PowerPoint 2007 look so much better than charts in previous versions, the chart type offerings are almost similar. PowerPoint 2007 provides all the basic chart types such as column, bar, line, pie, etc. -- and also some advanced charts like radar, surface, bubble, doughnut, etc. To change a chart type from one to another, you first need to have a chart in your presentation. Then follow these steps to change the chart type in PowerPoint 2007.

Reframe For Windows: The Indezine Review

April 02, 2010

There are several scenarios in which you might get stuck with video file formats -- maybe a video clip is not in the right format to be used within a PowerPoint slide. Or what do you do if you want to create some video for display on a web site or mobile applications -- and you don't want to go into technical terms like frame rates or aspect ratios that most normal mortals don't understand too well.

Reframe from Miraizon can help.

Learn PowerPoint 2007: Chart Elements in PowerPoint 2007

April 02, 2010

Charts in PowerPoint comprise several elements that we call chart elements. Typical chart elements include series (and this could be one or more series with values), axes (horizontal, vertical, and in some cases a third axis as well), plot area (the active chart area), legend, chart title, and many more. In this tutorial we'll learn more about these individual chart elements.

Artlandia SymmetryShop 3: The Indezine Review

Mar 31, 2010

Artlandia SymmetryShop 3 has been one of my favorite Photoshop plug-ins because it does just one thing -- but it does it so well with infinite possibilities -- it almost ends up being a whole application rather than just another Photoshop plug-in. So when the folks at Artlandia announced a new version of SymmetryShop, I was only to happy to explore how they made it even better. So how does the new Artlandia SymmetryShop 3 fare?
