PowerPoint has always been my presentation tool of choice. I have explored many others and enjoy the different effects, but I always return to PowerPoint. Being the “Grand Dame” of presentation tools, PowerPoint has been a tool a novice can use, but has also has many possibilities for the advanced user. Many of the effects give a Flash effect that can really wow your audience. Imagine a cube that seems to turn showing the different pictures. These features and others are available from Microsoft. While I use PowerPoint 2007, you can find instructions for these features for different versions of PowerPoint at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/templates/CT010336615.aspx and the video instructions for the effect shown in the picture above at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93ubF7zJiCo&feature=fvwrel. Now, when I have some awesome images I downloaded from Discovery such as the one in the picture above, I can use them in a way that will make my presentation more powerful.
