Is it MS Powerpoint? Macromedia/Adobe Flash? or Windows Movie Maker? These are the three mostly used softwares in making presentations. If you are using other than what I have mentioned, please share it too. For difficulty, MS Powerpoint is the easiest to use while Macromedia/Adobe Flash is the most difficult. Actually I have a knowledge on the three softwares I have mentioned so I can use any of them to make presentations. But since MS Powerpoint is the easiest, I mostly use it. How about you,what software do you use in making presentations?

Most of the time, I use powerpoint. I conduct training programs and I find powerpoint most appropriate for my training. Well, I also make some presentations using window movie maker. I am not familiar on how to do with macromedia/adobe flash. I surely would like to learn them. Well I am very impressed considering that you know those things.

Yes, powerpoint is really the mostly used software in making presentations both at work and in school. Yes, I can use the three softwares in making presentations but I'm just an average, not really an expert yet. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

i have only done a few from windows movie maker, none in adobe flash, and hundreds in ms powerpoint. ms powerpoint is more userfriendly albeit the features are basic compared to the other two. while we can do short video streams in moviemaker, we can only do video links in powerpoint or embed it in the presentation itself. i know i could do better with adobe flash in terms of presentation quality but that's something i need to learn first. :)

I agree that MS Powerpoint is the easiest, then Movie Maker, then Flash. I know you can be able to know all of the three since you are a superwoman. Lol! Powerpoint has the basic and user-friendly features, while Movie Maker and Flash are comprehensive and more complicated. You need to give time learning them. Hehe. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

once again pulling my leg. -lol- my experience with moviemaker is great, the voice recording and music and video... along with the timing and other technical inputs in the presentation. it was very much like some of the commercials and video productions we did in a project. i certainly will learn flash. given time... i'd really like to. :)

Yes, Powerpoint is easy to use. You can make better presentations using Flash because it has many features but it takes more time. And you also need Flash Player for it. So Powerpoint is really the mostly used software for presentations. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

Hi friend, Other than the fruitfullness of microsoft powerpoint in presentation making, there are some other uses too. You may have opt for it for fliping images and placing them in a frame. :) Try some image editing things in it too. Enjoy mylotting.

Yes Microsoft Office is really popular and mostly used all over the world. That's why MS Powerpoint is also the most common software use in making presentations. Aside from being popular, it is also easy to use, and user friendly. We can really stick with it. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

I use openoffice because it is free and it is also good enough to service its purpose. Now if I need a fancy one I can always edit the phone and use better quality material. I don't think the program really matters its the creativity with the avaliable functions. The programs really offer good templates and also schemes which are beneficial for pathos/effects for the presenter that is presenting to his/her audience god bless.

I haven't tried openoffice yet, since I stick with MS Office. But openoffice is really good since it is a free software. Yes, I agree with you, the creativity of the user is what really matters here. They are available templates but we can't just depend on those, because we can do better ones by ourselves. We can do great presentations if we are creative and artistic, which will really love by audience. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

Yes, Microsoft Powerpoint is very simple and easy to learn that's why it is the mostly used software for making presentations. Since you already know MS Powerpoint, you should study next how to make presentations in Windows Movie Maker. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!

Since I am by no means a techy person I definately ise the easiest of the ones youmenitoned. I like to be independent in what I do so which ever I can learn and master is the one I'll use until further desires arise. For me and presentations, its MS Powerpoint (which I honestly have not mastered)

Yes, we should practice the software to be able to know it well and master it. We can always begin learning the easiest one, which is the Microsoft Powerpoint. By keeping on doing presentations and keep on practising it, you will master it soon. Thank you for your response. Happy myLotting!
