Powerpoint help?

I am doing a slideshow of pictures for my grandma's funeral tea (after the funeral thing) and I dont' use it often, but I know some ppl here use it to scrap, so I'm wondering if someone could help me out?

I need to know how you put things on the slide 1 at a time - ie, I have 3 pictures on that slide, and want them to appear 1 at a time.

Also, the animation between slides isn't working, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Trina, I believe the pictures appearing one at a time is an animation feature that could be applied to the master slide to effect the entire slideshow or to one slide at a time...not sure what you mean about it not working between slides...I think if you don't do it on the master slide then you would have to go in and do it individually to each slide (and actually could do a different animation for each one)...does that make sense?

Let me open up PP and play for a second!

And I am so sorry about your grandma. :bigarmhug:

Trina ~ I'm an expert at Powerpoint. If you want to put the pictures on your slides that you want and email it to me I can fix all your animations and email it back to you. Just PM me if you want to.

Or I can do an over the phone walk through with you. Just let me know

Kebrina - I don't have it done yet (Thank goodness I don't have to have it til Tuesday!) ... where do I find those settings though?

I'm tempted to just figure out the size, do everything with photoshop and just insert a picture onto each slide lol. Then I'd only need animations between slides (which I found where you do it, but when I click on it nothing happens?).

Trina ~ When you have your animations tool bar up when you click on each image you should be able to add an animation to each image. You can set it to how you want it to come in, how long after the last animation you want it and the speed etc.

I'll do a tutorial with images and post it here. It will take me a bit to do this.

Also are you running Powerpoint 2003 or 2007?

I was babysitting an extra child yesterday and forgot to come back to this page!

Sounds like Kebrina knows what she's talking about more than I do anyway. Biggrin
