December 21, 2010, marks the day of the year with the fewest hours of daylight for those living north of the Tropic of Cancer. Less daylight, naturally, means more time for nightlife! That's something to celebrate, in my book. To commemorate the day, I made a fun, twinkly card to email to my friends. And I'll guide you, step-by-step, to show you how to make it.

Mike is an internationally recognized visual communication expert and multi-published author, and he operates BizGraphics On Demand (editable PowerPoint graphics for download).
You want to share your presentation with colleagues in other locations -- by publishing it on the Web, or sending it via email or on disc. But you're concerned that what they see won't look the way you want it to.
Relax! Follow this simple procedure to keep your worries at bay and ensure that your slide presentation displays the way you intended it to (even if some of your colleagues don't have PowerPoint installed on their computers), by turning your presentation into a video.
To draw attention to the important parts of your presentation, in PowerPoint 2010, you can use video bookmarks to trigger animations. Take a look at this short video to find out how to do it.
