PowerPoint 2010: Adjusting the Saturation for a Clip Art Image

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

In one of my recent Optimizing PowerPoint for eLearning & Presentations classes , I demonstrated how to adjust the saturation of an inserted image to take the image to grayscale. After the class, one of the students asked how to make this adjustment on clip art images. Because they are WMF files, you have the ability to Recolor the image, but not to fully adjust the saturation. PowerPoint may attempt to save the image as a WMF file by default. by AJ Walther.

TechSmith Camtasia

There is no one-size-fits-all for image file formats. With multiple options to save or export your images, the decision can seem complicated. This post will cover two of the most popular file format options, JPG vs. PNG, including when to use them and why. There are two main questions to ask yourself when you decide which image file format to use. First, what type of image is it? Second, how do you plan to use this image? What is a JPG?

Captivate 2019 VR not publishing images?

Adobe Captivate

I’ve tried publishing it using a zipped folder and uploading to the course content; this plays except the background 360 images are not displaying – just black with the hotspots hovering in mid blackness.

Working with Images in eLearning (part 1)

Matthew Guyan

As eLearning developers we regularly work with images in our projects and while we aren’t all graphic designers, it helps to have a basic knowledge of the terminology around image properties and file types which is what this post is about. When sourcing images from a photo website I look for a high ppi or dpi number: In this example I’d choose the medium (or maybe the large) over the small as it would be a higher quality and better for resizing.

SmartBuilder

To avoid this, you must provide graphics with more image data. Elearning development tools don’t yet support a typical approach to retina graphics, which is to create lower and high resolution versions of the same image and deliver up whichever one suits the learner’s device. However, you can get around this issue by providing only one image that contains additional data and allow the device to use as much image data as it needs.

My first 360° project !…

Adobe Captivate

… First of all, there’s no need to use a 360° image (as I thought before). I just create a big image (3000 x 2000 px in png) and insert it in the 360° slide.

As I have dozens of sounds (Mp3) and images (jpg), it still loads very surprisingly fast (when there was no more issue) !…
