Client wants more animation with photos

I'I am creating a 15 minute Articulate presentation that will be used by individuals and also shown to small groups in a workshop setting. We are not using clip art, only photos.

I know how to use annimations in PowerPoint, yet they are not giving me the 'look' the client wants.

Can I have a Flash developer create an animation and then isert it? What it seems they want is for there to be a picture on the screen (not full screen) and then for there to panning into detail on the picture. Something ike you'd see in video that include still shots.

Also any other ideas for creating a 'more polished look' would be appreciated.

Hi Marcia,

I've used a program called Proshow Producer that can do that; it's cheap ($250) and it's not that difficult to use.  Have a look at their demo here http://www.photodex.com/products/proshow/producer   You can export it into different formats and can insert it into Articulate.

Hi Marcia,

Can you give more detail about what you mean about "panning into detail"?  There are definitely some neat pan & zoom tricks that you can right in Powerpoint.  David Anderson does a couple of neat Screenr's about this type of thing:

Let us know if this is what you are trying to accomplish.

Search out Stephanie (slhice) on screenr as well.  She has some nice effects, a Ken Burns type effect among others.
