My presentation to the Contemporary Quilters' Guild went off without a hitch last night, unless you count my dithering with the remote from time to time. (It was very sensitive. When I pressed it too hard, it zipped on to the next two slides, and I had to reverse.) The pictures looked fantastic on the big screen. My Epson Powerlite projector worked great. I had practiced at home a couple of times to be sure I got the hookup and controls right. The only problem was that I couldn't get the projector to turn off, so I just unplugged it. Not a good idea. I hope it's okay--something about the sequence of powering down between the projector and laptop.
I'm a believer now--this is the only way to do presentations; forget about slide carousels forever. I'll be scanning my program slides into PowerPoint when I get some free time. (Ha!) Onward and upward.
