Whatever the case may be, knowing how to transform images into a PowerPoint presentation is essential. Here are some great tips on how to do so easily.

 

 

 

Converting Your Images

 

One of the great features PowerPoint has is letting users create a complete presentation from an entire group of photos automatically. Of course this can be done ony if the images are closely related to the principal content of the presentation you are doing. If for example, you have to give a product training presentation, it will require detail images of each particular product.

An easy way to do this is by selecting the “New” option from the file menu. This is found on the new presentation task pane located on the right side of your program screen. Once you are there, click on the “Photo Album” option.

 

After you have clicked on the ‘Photo Album’ option, it will display a window. That window will let you start to select the photos you need for your particular presentation. Next step is to click on the ‘File/Disk’ button and choose the images. You can load your images from your source by hitting the ‘Camera/Scanner button. This will allow you to load your images straight from whatever source you select.

 

Other Useful Features

 

The best thing about the Photo Album feature is that it lets you easily reorder your images. Simply select any photos and clicked on the up and down arrows to do so. You can hit the ‘Remove’ button in case you change your mind about any image or order.

 

Other features let you change the tonal value of your photos and make proper adjustments. In addition, you can also change the ‘Frame Shape’ as well. Once you are done, you simply click on the ‘OK’ button to exit the Photo Album box. After you do this, PowerPoint will automatically create your presentation. It will use whatever parameters and images you selected. Your last option is to add text if you want and then you are done.

Why The Web Has So Many Different Image Formats

Online Convert - Why The Web Has So Many Different Image Formats

When it comes to image formats available on the Internet, there is no shortage of them.

But just why are there so many different types of image formats available on the Internet today? Although the majority of people mostly recognize and use GIF or JPEG files, they are not the only ones available. In fact, there are more than 12. But why are there so many in the first place?

 

 

Things Have Changed

 

Not long ago, when people wanted to print something on paper, there were only the typical choices to make. That was the size, quality and matte finish of the paper, among others. Those choices largely depended on the project and the amount of time and money you were willing to spend. These days though, those things have changed dramatically. Now, with technology advancing so much, our choices have changed and continue to do so. File compression and conversion, along with a few other factors, have contributed to those changes. People have more choices because they have greater access to the Internet. In addition, they also have more different choices and devices from where to gain access to the web. That, coupled with a few other factors, is what has led to there being such a vast amount of images formats available.

Patents, Technical And Other

 

Some of the image formats which have been created the past few years, have been due to patents, technical and a few other factors. Many scanners, printers and cameras manufacturers refused to use a competitor’s format on their devices. In turn, they ended up creating their own kind of format. From the technical perspective side of it, those choices come down to the various issues. Factors such as compression, speed of processing the images and file size came into play. In addition, how you wanted to share or intended to use the images was also an issue.

 

All About The Space

 

Since many websites use certain image formats to save space and bandwidth, different types of files are used. The most widely used on sites are JPG (JPEG) or GIF images. These are done to save space. For someone who has only a few images to store or send, then it is not an issue. However, many sites have thousands, if not millions, of images stored and available for visitors. Imagine the amount of space needed if those formats were not available or used. These compressed images save users tons of space.

 

Change Image Formats Easily

 

Presently, there are about 12 different types of image formats. They are

 

JPG – JPEG

BMP

EPS

GIF

ICO

HDR/EXR

PNG

SVG

TGA

TIFF

WBMP

WebP

 

Free Image Format Conversion

 

But what happens when you have a certain type of image and you cannot open it with the program, software or device you own? The answer is simply to convert that file into the format you need. While there are programs and websites which do this for you for a price or by asking for something in return, Online Convert does not. Here at Online Convert, you can easily change the format of any image file you want. You can do the same for videos, audio, documents, eBooks and archives formats. Best of all, you can do so for free without downloading anything. Simply go here to our Online image converter tool and follow the simple steps.

Instagram is a great way to share photos and videos with your friends and other fans of your life, clothes, lifestyle or the great photos you take. And of course, others do that to! If you stumble across a great picture or video on your feed, you can admire it, like it, comment, or even send it forward to other Instagram users. But that’s about all you can do when it comes to sharing Instagram posts with other people.

But what if you want to share someone’s posts with your Facebook friends? Or save the image or video on your phone?

Usually, you would have to install yet another app to download and save photos and videos from Instagram. Do you really want that? Packing your phone with even more apps that, in most cases, also add features you don’t want or need or even ads? Also, if you are looking at Instagram profiles on a computer, taking a screenshot and cropping the image can become tedious as well. Let alone that you’d need a screen recorder to save the videos and even have to edit them afterwards to fit.

Luckily, there is a way easier way that doesn’t require any download, installation or payment!

The Differences Between Lossless And Lossy Compression

The Differences Between Lossless And Lossy Compression
Image Credit by = http://bit.ly/1tBVJGv

 

The amount of files and data a person can accumulate over a period of time, can quickly fill out their hard drives or cloud storage space. Because of that, many people have to look for ways to reduce the amount of space those files are taking up. Since deleting those files, is often not an option, resorting to file compression is another alternative. However, before you begin to convert your files, or compress them, you need to know about the methods available. In addition, when sharing files via email, messages or social media, being able to compress the files is crucial and beneficial. Not just for the person sending the files, but the for the person receiving them as well. This is why knowing the differences between lossless and lossy compression, is very important.  

 

 

 

File Compression

 

One of the best things about file compression, is that you can compress images, music or video files easily. In the day and age where there is so much information available on the internet, the amount of data we download, send, or save, can take up lots of space. Luckily, people can choose to compress their files as a means not only save space, but to make it easier to share those files as well. Still, when it comes to file compression, it is very important to know and understand the differences between the types of formats available. The reason for this is because choosing the wrong format, can end up rendering a file obsolete in several ways. For one, it can ruin the file’s original quality. Secondly, compressing it in the wrong format, can end up making the file size immensely larger.

Lossless And Lossy Compression

 

So what are lossless and lossy compression, and what are the differences? Lossless and lossy compression are characterizations which are used to explicate the distinction between two file compression formats. One (lossless) allows for all of the original data to be recovered whenever the file is uncompressed again. The other (lossy) works differently since it ends up eliminating all the “unnecessary” bits and pieces of information in the original file to make it smaller when compressed. The question some people often ask is how can I choose between the two, or when? The answer to that question, largely depends on several factors. One, is the size and type of file you want to compress or convert. Secondly, the amount of space available, as well as the amount of space you want to save.

 

Lossy File Compression

 

While lossy file compression are mostly associated with image files, it can also be used for audio files. Files such as MP3s, MP4s, and AAC files, or images such as JPEGs, are usually compressed in the lossy format. Whenever you choose to compress a file using the lossy format, many of the redundant information in the files, are eliminated. Because of that, lossy compression tends to be used whenever people are reducing the size of a bitmap images, or other files. This does not mean that lossy file compression does not work very well when it comes to reducing and preserving files from their original state. In fact, an original image which has been compressed using lossy format, will retain about 80% of it’s original quality. For audio files, such as a MP3, the reduction of the original file can be reduced to about one tenth, while almost sounding identical.

 

Lossless File Compression

 

Unlike lossy file compression, using the lossless format can end up reducing a file’s size without any loss of the original quality. With new compression algorithms available now, lossless compressed files are preserved better than ever before. Using lossless compression to compress a file, will rewrite the data in the same manner as that of the original file. However, audio and image files compressed using lossless compression, will tend to be larger in size than that of lossy.

Choosing Between The Two

 

If you are trying to decide between which two methods to choose for compressing your files, the answer depends on several factors. If you are willing to accept minor losses of a file’s original quality as a means to compensate for saving space, then you can choose lossy compression. However, if you are not that really concerned about space, or want to keep your file in its original state, then lossless is your best option. Many experts agree that if you have the space, then going with lossless is recommended. The reasons for choosing to compress files using lossless compression are several. For one, after the file has been compressed using the lossless format, it can be restored or converted again back to the original state without any losses. In addition, lossless compression, allows the original data to be completely and fully reconstructed from the original compressed data afterwards.

In the end, choosing between the two also depends on the types of files as well as the space available. For photos, going with the lossy compression is an option. But for audio and video files, lossless is better.

 

10 Ways To Make Your PowerPoint Presentations Better

10 Ways To Make Your PowerPoint Presentations Better

PowerPoint presentations are very popular and widely used by many people to convey their messages to others. However, often times, the majority of the people watching these presentations become bored or tuned them out before the message can even begin to be told. In order to avoid giving a boring or ineffective PowerPoint presentation, there are several tips you should follow. Below are some of 10 best ways to make sure your next PowerPoint presentation is a successful one.

 

 

 

 

Pick Great Fonts

 

Depending on the theme or topic you are presenting, using the right kind of font for your PowerPoint presentation is very important. One of the great things about Microsoft PowerPoint is the options you have to choose from so many different kinds of fonts. From Times New Roman to Helvetica Neue, the combinations of fonts available are numerous. Just make sure you play with different ones until you find the right one for your theme.

Be sure to play around with different colors

Play With Colors

 

The best thing about a rainbow is that it contains so many different colors. Unfortunately, some people either choose to not use the many colors available to them in PowerPoint, or simply use one. Adding different colors to your presentation can instantly liven it up and add pizazz to it.

 

Say It With Words

 

While it is important to use great graphics or pictures when preparing your presentation, it is also crucial to use text or have a script to tell your storyline. Adding a few lines of text or using it to tell the story of your presentation can create instant appreciation and attention. Keeping your audience interested in whatever message you are conveying is important. Often times, graphics alone are not enough. Still, make sure you don’t overuse the words by making the presentation mostly or only text.

 

Try Different Combinations

 

Whether you decide to use images, graphs, text or a combination of all, try different ones. There are many templates out there to choose from which can give you an idea of how you may want to go. Playing around with different combinations may lead to you finding the right one for your presentation.

 

Be Creative

 

If you don’t want the people you are presenting your work to fall asleep or lose interest, then remember to be creative. One of the best things about PowerPoint is the ability to let you do just about anything in your presentation. Take advantage of the many different ways you can make your presentation a great one.

 

Make sure to use shapes in your PowerPoint Presentation

Use PowerPoint’s shapes

 

PowerPoint has so many different shapes and designs available that there is no reason for yours to not have any. Take full advantage of the numerous PowerPoint’s shapes available for you to use. From oval, rounded, and many rectangle patterns, the possibilities are endless.

 

Integrate Websites Within PowerPoint

 

Before, whenever people wanted to show a website during a PowerPoint presentation, they would merely create a link to the page which would open via a browser. However, you can now easily integrate websites within PowerPoint. You can use normal HTML iframe or use tools such as LiveWeb which allow you to show the site without interrupting your Presentation.

 

Say It With Images

 

The famous English idiom of a “Picture being worth a thousand words” is very true. It is also even more essential when using it in a PowerPoint presentation. While text can convey what you may want to say directly, using images tend to catch people’s attention better. Also, images are more powerful and make your message easier to follow and a lot more interesting.

 

Use big text in your PowerPoint Presentations

BIG Is Good

 

Using BIG, bold words during your presentation can convey to the viewers which parts of your message are more important. It can also show what parts you feel they should take away from it. Using Bold, Big letters can instantly and immediately grab the attention of the audience from anywhere in the room.

Use Infographics

 

Believe it or not, 50% of people watching presentations are more likely to take something away from it, when it contains infographics. Adding infographics to your presentation will show the audience actual statistics which cannot be disputed. This is of course, providing you are using actual, real stats. The point is, infographics show your message by numbers. And nothing can beat numbers or actual stats.

One of the greatest things about the Internet and social media is the many doors it has opened for people all over the world. Employment opportunities are endless and constantly emerging for users. If you’re a photographer or just like taking pictures, there are many ways to make money from your photos. This can be very helpful for college students looking for extra cash to help them with tuition costs or other issues. It can also be a way for those just looking to make some extra bucks on the side. Best of all, your photos don’t have to be professional or real high quality. Most sites are looking for regular, and normal, everyday pictures you may take.

 

Sell To Stock Photo Sites

 

One of the best ways for people to make money off their images is by selling them to stock photo sites. The current list of the most popular sites is about 20 of them. If you do decide to go with one of these sites, just keep your pictures royalty-free. This will allow you to sell them to not just one site or person, but to multiple different ones. And the best thing about this is that you can sell them again and again. Although the money you may make from each photo won’t be that much, if you sell a lot of them, that money adds up. It is all about the numbers here since the more you sell, the higher your earnings will be.

Night Clubs Photography

 

Going to your local club to drink, have fun and dance is cool. But you can also make money from going to night clubs by selling photographs. We are not referring to you selling photos to patrons in the club. That was something that was done years ago. The money you can earn comes from getting in contact with promoters of the club. They will pay you since they want photos from their clubs promoted or distributed. The pictures can end up on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, which in turn, will promote the club.  

 

Be A Paparazzi

 

While many people hate the paparazzi (especially the famous people they are taking photos of), they make good money. Fact is, that without the paparazzi, several famous people would not even be considered celebrities. For those that live in the big city, this can be a great way to make money. If you get a good shot of a celebrity, it can end up making you some easy cash. In addition, catching the right photo, at the right time, of the right celebrity, may end up making you super rich. But this is kin to hitting the lotto since it requires some luck and patience.

 

Blog – Marketing

 

For those that love photography, teaching or blogging about it, can be a way to make some cash on the side. By using your photos to create articles, you can then sell things indirectly or directly. Linking to sites such as Amazon or others, can lead people to click on them and in turn, you get a commission of the sale. Also, each time someone clicks on one of the ads on your blog, you get paid as well. It may not be a lot of money, but it is something to help you make some extra cash. Still, if you use your marketing skills, you can end up promoting items online that people are looking for and link to them.

 

The Local Paper

 

Contacting your local paper and letting them see your portfolio, can open the door for you to make money from your pictures. Although it may not be a steady job, whenever they will need a photographer, your local paper will contact you. If you really like taking pictures, this may end up helping you move on to bigger things later on. Going to a local event and selling those photos to your local paper, can eventually lead to bigger gigs.

 

Photo Competitions

 

You can also enter photography competitions as way to earn some money on the side. Some of the most popular photos in the world just happened to be taken at the right time and place. Since no one really knows what picture may end up catching the judges eyes, the possibilities are endless. Countless of amateurs photographers have won up to $3,000.00 for a photograph, some even more than that. Plus, you can get some opinions on your work from other photographers or people in the industry.
