You have a standard size PowerPoint presentation and need to present it on a 16x10 or 16x9 widescreen projector, laptop or external monitor. Or you've received a widescreen presentation that you need to display on a normal screen.
Changing the presentation's Page Setup size will convert the slides to the correct size, but it also distorts all of your graphics and upsets the alignment of the shapes on slides. You can fix this manually, slide by slide ... if you have the time and energy.
Or you can use PPTools Resize add-in for PowerPoint to do the conversion. Resize ...
- Does the conversion in seconds, rather than minutes or hours
- Doesn't distort anything on the slide
- Preserves alignments between shapes/graphics
- Lets you specify a "safe margin" (great for converting regular slides to "TV-Safe" format
- And more ...
Resize costs $39.95.
Resize is compatible with PowerPoint versions 2000 through 2010.
