Laboratory Exercise 8- Carrying Out Presentations Office Productivity Tools 2 Laboratory Exercise # 8 Carrying Out Presentations Objectives: At the end of the exercise, the students are expected to be able to: Covert a presentation into a PowerPoint Show Create a Photo Album Add password to protect a presentation Materials: 3 ½ floppy disk Note: All exercises should be saved in your data disk and must be submitted to your instructor after every laboratory session. Files to be used: Activity10xxx.ppt Basic Information: Converting Presentation into a PowerPoint Show A PowerPoint Show is a presentation file that always displays in Slide Show mode when opened, just like an executable file that automatically runs. A.pps file cannot be edited though being opened in a PowerPoint application. There is no way to edit this not unless you are the owner of this file and you have the regular presentation file. Note that all files such as sound, video, and files linked and included in the.pps file must be saved in the same location where the.pps file is saved when sending to someone. A sound recorded using PowerPoint is automatically included in the.pps file and need not to include the external sound file. So, if you’re thinking to send a.pps file to someone, either, send the sound file with the.pps file or record the sound. This also applies to a.pps file with a movie file. However, you cannot record a movie; only, send the.pps file with the movie file. Did you know that though you were not the owner of a PowerPoint show file, you can edit this? As simple as, changing the file extension of a.pps file to.ppt. But, some Operating System does not allow the file extension renaming. Creating a Photo Album You can easily create a Photo Album in PowerPoint 2003 wherein you need not to gamble yourself inserting images one at a time. Photo Album feature allows you to insert no matter how many images to be inserted in the presentation and more than one image per slide. Moreover, it offers you the layout and the frame shape of the images. It also allows you to easily identify and modify their arrangement. Captions are also being provided by this feature wherein it adopts the image’s filename if weren’t modified. But still, normal view gives you the power to modify any changes needed to apply. Password Protection Most users use password to avoid any modification from their presentation when being viewed by their colleagues. Obviously, password protects your presentation when in the hands of someone to avoid any modification or when you saved it in a public folder. Sometimes, users use the open presentation password when wanting no one to view their presentation just like when in a public folder. Activity #11 Carrying Out Presentation 1.
