View Full Version : Do better than Google Presentation by yourself? Of course you can!

Long after the acquiring of Zenter and Tonic Systems, Google finally unveiled its Web presentation tool last week. But this time Google disappointed most of us: the tool doesn't provide much design flexibility and any animation effects support. No one likes the idea of these restrictions. A dull slideshow may scare away all visitors. Even without any multimedia, a presentation should be dynamic with animations to attract the audience. In this way, Google Presentation seems to be just a trial Webware for beginners.

As Google Presentation is so weak, when we really need to show a well-decorated presentation online, what can we do by ourselves? I s***est getting our own way to online presentation, and it could be better than Google Presentation definitely.

Where should our online presentation start from?

Apparently we need to know what and how Google Presentation does in the background at first. Let us guess, it just uses some AJAX platform to realize online authoring, and finally it converts all slides into Flash to show online as other online presentation providers. That's it.

Since PowerPoint is familiar and easy-to-use to us, actually we can do the same and even better authoring works offline within PowerPoint. And then we just need to make PowerPoint file as Flash presentation online. I think it's the appropriate solution for us other than Google Presentation.

Make attractive presentation with PowerPoint by ourselves

To make an excellent presentation with PowerPoint, we could add animations, transitions and other effects to color your static slides, and enhance the presentation with background music, video clips and other rich media. These are what Google Presentation doesn't offer. Read more PowerPoint tutorials at http://video.about.com/presentationsoft/PowerPoint-Animations.htm and http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/powerpoint/CH06*50064*0**.aspx.

Show original presentation online as we want

As we know, to get best quality in online presentation, Flash is the right media to retain animations or multimedia. Improper effects, incompatibility with popular PowerPoint 2007 - The PowerPoint to Flash conversion in Google Presentation is as weak as its online authoring. So we'd better use some powerful tool to deal with PowerPoint. I recommend we should do some searching and learning at Google (What it really do the best) http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=convert+PowerPoint+to+Flash to find the tool which really meets our distinct needs, such as multiple editions of Wondershare PPT2Flash http://www.sameshow.com/powerpoint-to-flash-editions.html. Finally, simply upload and embed the Flash presentation in blogs, spaces or any Web pages.

Now, we can have a look at what we've done here. Other than weak Google Presentation, we made our own powerful way to show excellent presentation online, and our online presentation is really what we want and what the audience would like to view.

If and when I put my plan into action, you'll need more than coins to give to the children.
