    Jigsaw effect (PP 97)

    Dose anyone know of any software which splits a graphic file into jigsaw pieces. I have been asked to create a PP persentation which builds a concept piece by piece and thought it would look cool if I could make jigsaw pieces.

    Any graphic file? Or the jigsaw graphic that comes with clip art - that graphic can be ungrouped so that pieces can be handled individually. Here is a sample of a presentation where I've done just that. Other than that - you'll could do it with PPT itself.

    Hi, and thanks for the demo. I actually wanted to know if I could get an image or a slide and slice it up into jigsaw pieces. However, seeing your demo, I'm sure my client could use this just as well.

    This isn't exactly what you're looking for, but is another example of revealing parts of the screen. Use the "Freeform" tool. FIll with a picture. Use the points to hide important parts of the picture. Then over a series of slides, move the points out to reveal.

    The fill in any object fills from left to right, top to bottom, whatever shape you're filling. Therefore, as you move the points, don't allow the points you move to move outside the original boundaries of your original object.

    I've taught this in my PowerPoint seminars for years and people love it!
