Say Cheese!

PowerPoint presentations are not just for business meetings. Enjoy creating Scrapbooks and Photo Albums? Then use PowerPoint and create sensational photo albums and travelogues; you can even create a virtual tour of your new home. You can then email this photo album to friends and family or post it on the web. Using the existing templates available on PowerPoint makes it all a breeze! You can create your own custom layouts; add special effects to your photos just like a professional designer all with just a click of a mouse!

Once you open PowerPoint 2007, Click New and then click on Installed Templates and choose Classic Photo Album or Contemporary Photo Album.

Double click the template or click once and then click Create.

The template will open displaying different slide samples with all the design elemnts in place: the color, font, and the placeholders for your text and photos.

If you like the template you chose, then simply add your own text and photographs in the appropriate placeholders. If you do not like all of the design elements on your chosen template, you can always modify and customize it according to your taste.

Once you‘ve inserted the photo, (make sure you have selected it by clicking on it), you will see a contextual tab that provides all the tools you need to format or add special effects to your image. You can crop the photo, give it an old-world sepia tone, add a frame or adjust the brightness.

Click on the text placeholder to add or edit your text. You can also delete unnecessary text or image placeholders simply by clicking on the placeholder and using the delete key on your keyboard.

You can save the photo album so that it always opens in the Slide Show view or save it as a webpage. You can also save it as a PDF (Portable Document Format). Saving your photo album in different formats gives you the option of displaying it in different applications such as a blog or a website.
