Lost in the Translation
Well heck. It looked so nice on my Mac.
I wanted an easy, small-file-size “display” of my upcoming presentations that will require more of the eyes than of the ears. But the Keynote to Power Point conversion left the text portion of the time-and-date slides overlapping the images. You’ll see what I mean–the baby’s too ugly to call much attention to it. The QuickTime .mov version that the West Lake library is (I trust) using in their lobby to promote tomorrow’s event (see left sidebar for details) should not be deformed like this.
The program I’ll be offering has 100 images with Ken Burns-like slide transitions and some nice Appalachian-Celtic musical background, and is a very pleasant way to think about all that we have to be thankful for in this season of our species, our communities and our families and in our individual lives.
The original had slide transitions and some nice Dvorak piano music as a background–all of which was lost in the upload.
So this small slide series doesn’t do justice to the presentation, but maybe it will give you a taste anyway.
