2 © 2005 Deborah Gilden Introduction Although its called PowerPoint presentation software, the versatility of this application makes it useful for a lot more than just giving presentations. For those of us who cant draw by hand but have a need, or just a hankering, to create some simple images, the drawing tools that are a part of PowerPoint software are just the ticket. Even young children can learn to draw in this medium that ensures your circles are round, your squares are square, and your colors stay inside the lines -- yet also allows for freehand creativity via the mouse. Perhaps these samples created with PowerPoint Drawing Tools will inspire you to make your own masterpieces!
