Presentations Programs .
Although the “birth” of personal computers began to appear Editing and Publication Programs, it was not until the early 80s, with the advent of color monitors, color printers, projection equipment and overhead projectors, etc., that Presentations Programs for trying and presenting graphic information, increased their development.
Today, is not conceived the development of Visual or written presentations without the assistance of the microcomputers and Presentation programs.
Presentations Software is based in the elaboration of a number of individual pages or slides. The “slide” analogy is a reference to the slide projector. Slides may contain text, graphics, sound, movies, and other objects, which may be arranged freely. The presentation can be printed, displayed live on a computer, or navigated through at the command of the presenter. For larger audiences the computer display is often a video projector.
Presentations Programs provide three types of movements:
- Entrance, emphasis, and exit of elements on a slide itself are controlled by what is called Custom Animations.
- Transitions, on the other hand, are movements between slides. These can be animated in a variety of ways.
- Custom animation can be used to create small story boards by animating pictures to enter, exit or move.
Almost like a Movie.
Presentation Programs provide numerous features that offer flexibility and the ability to create a professional presentation. One of the features provides the ability to create a presentation that includes music which plays throughout the entire presentation or sound effects for particular slides. In addition to the ability to add sound files, the presentation can be designed to run, like a movie, on its own.
Presentations Programs allow the user to record the slide show with narration and a pointer. The user may customize slide shows to show the slides in a different order than originally designed and to have slides appear multiple times.
