How to Animate SmartArt Graphics in PowerPoint Presentations | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it
If you need to animate PowerPoint graphics using SmartArt then this tutorial will help you to achieve the effect.
PowerPoint SmartArt graphics were introduced in MS Office 2007 and are available in PowerPoint 2010 and the new PowerPoint 2013. You can use SmartArt to quickly add nice graphics to your presentations including workflow diagrams, process diagrams as well as comparison tables or graphics with pictures. This is a great alternative to show information and an alternative to bullet points or bullet list.

On the one hand it looks like a potentially useful product. It's sort of a graphical Evernote with linkage but the price $249 and $299 is way out in left field. Evernote is $45. It's a "nice to have" product but not a "must have".

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.
