    Picture editor for PP97? (97)

    After having completed a 30+ page presentation with over 50 screen-shot graphics, I realize that i must make some adjustments to the raster images. While it is not much trouble to copy the picture, paste it into a graphics package (PaintShopPro) to make the edit then paste it back into PP, I loose all the animation effects. Is there a way to edit the pictures inside PP, or at least force PP to open my editor to make the changes? It would sure save me a lot of work.

    FIrst: I know nothing of raster images.

    Is your "Picture" tool bar turned on? (View->Toolbars->Picture) These give you quite an array of tools for formatting.

    I've posted a link to this thread in the VB/VBA board, so hopefully some of the VBA gurus will take a look at your question. Because I think the only solution is in VBA.

    <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by Eileen on 20-Jul-01 19:57.</FONT></P>It sounds like you did "Insert" "Picture" "...." rather than "Insert" "Object" "Create from file" If you do the later then double left click on the picture in PP will bring up the application (PSP in your case). When you have finished editing just close the application and the updated picture will be on your PP slide. Of course you may want to save it whilst in PSP as well.
    However I don't use animation so I am not sure if this will solve that aspect of your problem. Also if you use the vector capabilities of PSP I am not sure what resolution you will get in PP - see my query on this forum. I would be interested to know how you get on. Good luck.

    Re: Picture editor for PP97? (97)

    Huh! Well, I was just doing the ol' copy and paste routine. Inserting an object is a bit more complicated and time consuming, but I may have to go this route. (I tried a "Paste Special" in the hopes I could paste as an object, but no luck.)

    Thanks!

    Re: Picture editor for PP97? (97)

    Your question got me thinking about something I've always wanted to do in PPT and that is copy and paste animation settings in the same way that we use the format painter.

    So, I've roughed out a couple of macros to do this.

    Start by putting the following in the "declarations" area of the VBA module:

    Dim Ani, AniSET As Boolean
    Dim AniTiR As Long
    Dim AniDC, AniAT, AniAM, AniAE, AniEE, AniTLE, AniTUE, AniBkgrd As Integer

    'EntryEffect, TextLevel Effect, TextUnitEffect,AnimateBackground, Animate,
    ' Animate After Effect
    'Advance Mode, Advance Time, Dim Colour, AnimateTextInReverse

    I've noted which animation effects are handled by the macro, not everything is.

    Then place the following macros in the same module
    Public Sub CopyAnimation()
    With ActiveWindow.Selection
    If .Type = ppSelectionShapes Then
    AniEE = .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.EntryEffect
    AniBkgrd = .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.AnimateBackground
    Ani = .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.Animate
    AniAE = .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.AfterEffect
    AniAM = .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.AdvanceMode
    AniAT = .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.AdvanceTime
    AniDC = .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.DimColor
    '
    End If
    If .ShapeRange.HasTextFrame Then
    AniTLE = .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.TextLevelEffect
    AniTUE = .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.TextUnitEffect
    AniTiR = .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.AnimateTextInReverse
    End If
    End With
    End Sub


    Sub PasteAnimation()
    Dim localpath As String
    localpath = "c:winntmediamicrosoft office 2000"
    With ActiveWindow.Selection
    If .ShapeRange.HasTextFrame Then
    .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.EntryEffect = AniEE
    .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.AnimateBackground = AniBkgrd
    .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.Animate = Ani
    .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.AfterEffect = AniAE
    .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.AdvanceMode = AniAM
    .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.AdvanceTime = AniAT
    .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.DimColor = AniDC
    End If
    If .ShapeRange.HasTextFrame Then
    .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.TextLevelEffect = AniTLE
    .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.TextUnitEffect = AniTUE
    .ShapeRange.AnimationSettings.AnimateTextInReverse = AniTiR
    End If
    End With
    End Sub

    Attach both macros to buttons on the toolbar.

    The CopyAnimation macro does just that, copies the animation settings for the selected object. The PasteAnimation macro can be used repeatedly or on a group of selected items at the same time.

    Cheers.
