How to View PowerPoint Presentation on iPad2

apple logoAfter launching on March 11th, iPad 2 keeps being sold out in many countries.

The second generation of iPad has been improved in some technical features, such as processor, memory and some parts of appearance.

Business men still foucs on working with iPad 2. More and more users are considering how to show powerpoint presentation on iPad 2 to their friends.
There are several ways I collected.

iPad 2 can be used to play video, and it supports video formats like .m4v, .mp4, and .mov. So, use a convert tool and convert PowerPoint to video. Then, it will be easy to be played on iPad 2. Additionally, you can upload the output video to Youtube immediately and share it with more friends.

  • Export PowerPoint slides as images
iPad 2 has excellent performance on view photos. Saving PowerPoint slides as pictures is another way. Just click "Save as" in powerpoint menu and choose a picture format which iPad 2 allows, such as JPG, BMP, GIF, and PNG.

But in this way, you will loss the fan which animations in original presentation can bring to you.
Just like the second method, View PDF file is another solution we can try to solve the problem. And it still has the disadvantage that PDF file is static.
  • View PowerPoint with iWork
There're three tools integrated in iWork. One of them - Keynote - is specially for PowerPoint application. If you have installed the APP, you can have a try.

Choose your best choice and enjoy your iPad life.

Cloud Computing in Microsoft Office 365 Cloud Platform including Powerpoint, Word and Excel Applications

The storm of Cloud Computing is coming this year.

Cloud computing refers to the provision of computational resources on demand via a computer network.”
It sounds abstract. Actually, “The Cloud” in Cloud Computing is a large server which provides internet services. For example, when a user accesses to the cloud, he can works with office software online, instead of downloading applications to his local computer. All of the data and documents will be saved in “The Cloud”, and he doesn’t need to worry about lossing important files or forgetting carrying them with him.

Typical cloud computing providers deliver common business applications online that are accessed from another Web service or software like a Web browser, while the software and data are stored on servers.

Cloud Computing is the development tendency of Internet. Microsoft has announced Office 365 Cloud Platform and its features are really attractive.

There are four services in Office 365——Office Professional Plus, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Lync Online.

With Office Prefessional Plus, we can get the latest version of the Office applications and access our documents, emaill and calendars from virtually any device by connecting with cloud server. And we will review or make edits to documents directly from a browser. So, no more office sofeware needs to be installed in our local computer and more storage space will be saved.

It’s perfect for me that I may instantly share slideshows, across town or around the world with PowerPoint Broadcast Slide Show and I can create presentations that are as brilliant to watch as they are easy to create with new video and photo editing tools in PowerPoint.

It’s more convinient to share documents and insights with colleagues, partners and customers by creating sites with SharePoint Online.

Microsoft Exchange Online is designed for organizations who want to get the benefits of cloud-based email without sacrificing the business-class capabilities that Exchange Server has been providing for decades.

Lync Online provides intuitive communications capabilities across presence, instant messaging, audio/video calling and a rich online meeting experience including PC-audio, video and web conferencing.
Are you dreaming of the situation when you work easily and conviniently on cloud platform? I just can’t wait to experience “The Cloud” Office.

How to upload PowerPoint Presentation of Elizabeth Taylor to YouTube?

My best friend Penny loves watching Hollywood movies, especially classical black and white films. She always says, “Actresses in old films are beautiful and have female charm. Sometimes they can provide you some other life styles. You are never tired of watching some clips.” Her favorite Hollywood stars is Elizabeth Taylor and Shirley Temple.

This morning, when she heard the news about Elizabeth Taylor, she was very sad and searched for the stories and reports about her. There are many photos and stills in a PowerPoint presentation about the big star. She asked me how to upload a PowerPoint file onto youtube and share it with more fans who love Elizabeth Taylor.

I watch the presentation Penny recommended. Elizabeth Taylor is really a charming woman. And I began to look for the method to help Penny.

Many conversion ways you can search on internet. But for Penny, a girl just want to convert a short ppt to the video format which can be shared on youtube, a easy software tool is suitable.

Windows Movie Maker is a free tool provided by Microsoft. You can find the using guide on Microsoft website. But if you want to make a video from PowerPoint, you need to save all the slides in your presentation as like *.jpg or *.png. It's complicated and will take much time to do.

There is another professional PowerPoint Converter I recommend to those users just like Penny, Leawo PowerPoint to Video Converter. It needs only 3 steps and then please wait for the result. More additional functions are also supported. But the output of the free vision has the software logo on it.

Penny is converting the PowerPoint presentation now. We both hope more and more people will give best wishes to Elizabeth Taylor, the movie star, and remember her in our heart for ever.

The powerpoint Penny recommend:
