Powerpoint and beyond

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.

Great Nita. I guess I'll have to put the carousel away at this end too. I am sure most of the teachers will be going this way.

It's great when you get the hang of it. No stuck slides, for one thing. Although there are some things to watch for. The woman who presented before me had brought a Mac computer, which didn't work with the IBM projector they provided. Fortunately, she was prepared with a CD that would play on the IBM. Who knew?
