Creative Words and Pictures

Unlock the endless possibilities of Microsoft PowerPoint and Publisher.

Microsoft PowerPoint offers many creative tools for producing stunning presentations of words and pictures far beyond a few lines of text with bullet points.  Images can be added from any source and can be enhanced by selecting from a creative array of artistic and graphic effects.  Each slide in a presentation can have visually imaginative transitions applied to add further impact. PowerPoint presentations can be saved as a MP4 file which can be played on any computer.  A wonderful way to display family images business presentations way beyond “click, here’s the next slide”.

Microsoft Publisher is just that, a platform for producing cards, leaflets, newsletters, invitations and more.  In a similar way to PowerPoint it has an extensive array of pre-formatted templates which can be edited to suite your needs.  Like PowerPoint the only limitation is your imagination.
