Four Slideshow Tools, From Simple to Sophisticated

Four Slideshow Tools, From Simple to Sophisticated | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it
Whether you're trying to create a fun, casual compilation of your favorite photos, or a slick, sophisticated slideshow, we have the tools for you. Each one offers a free option, but you definitely get more when you pay.

 

You have all of these digital photos stashed away in the corners of your hard drive. They'd make a lovely gift or year-end memento. You could print them out and slide them into a photo album—but that's so 2002, and we're down to the wire for holiday shipping as is. Why not create a slick online slideshow instead?

Guides in PowerPoint 2010

Guides in PowerPoint 2010 | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2010 is a program for creating various types of slide to be displayed as a presentation in a slide show. A slide show is a set of slides shown on a computer monitor at specific intervals, depending on what each slide shows. You can decide how long each slide is to remain on screen in your presentation.
You can also use PowerPoint to create different types of designed printed matter and slide show. A slide can include text, images, videos and other objects which you can place in your slide in an ordered way. To achieve a uniform style, PowerPoint uses background templates to control the format content throughout each presentation...
