  • 3. Animation fly in speed
    Hi. I'm using Powerpoint 2000 and want to slow down the fly in from bottom left animation effect. It comes in too fast for what I want to do. This is not the transition effect between animations but the actual fly in effect itself. It's a gif and I want it to take 1.5-2 seconds to get to the middle of the screen. Anyone know if that's possible? Thanks

TIFF decompressor

My prof posted his lectures on-line, and it says that a TIFF decompressor is 
required to view some of the images on his ppt slides.  I noticed that the 
obvious fix required access to the original images.  In this case, it's not 
possible.  Is there any other way around it?

3.QuickTime and a TIFF/JPEG decompressor are required to view this picture

This is a known problem with TIFF/JPEG documents dragged and dropped into
files from the Web. Office 2003 does not support Quicktime TIFF/JPEG
compression. You can workaround this by copying the graphic into the
application preview on the Mac and then saving it into a non-compressed
format. TIFF or JPEG. Then insert the document in the Office/Powerpoint
document using the insert from file option.

Why is this still happening in Office 2003 and WIN XP even when QuickTime is

When you view a PowerPoint presentation, you may notice that one or more of
your graphic images are not displayed. Instead, you may see a placeholder
for the graphic that contains the following message:
QuickTime(TM) and a Photo - JPEG decompressor are needed to see this
  <#toc>  Back to the top <#toc>
Most likely, the graphic is using a QuickTime compression scheme, such as
JPEG. With PowerPoint for the Macintosh, you can import PICT graphics that
use JPEG compression. Adobe PhotoShop and some other graphic programs can
save PICT files with JPEG compression. If you move a presentation that
contains one of these graphics to another computer or a different platform,
you may encounter this problem. These files require QuickTime to display or
decompress the image. If QuickTime is not present, PowerPoint displays the
"QuickTime PICT" message.
  <#toc>  Back to the top <#toc>
Re-import the graphic without JPEG compression. To do this, follow these

NOTE: The following example uses Adobe PhotoShop version 3.0.
 1. Open the graphic in PhotoShop.
 2. On the File menu, click Save As.
 3. Select PICT file format, name the graphic, and then click  Save.
 4. In the PICT File Options dialog box, click None in the  Compression
 5. Click OK to save the graphic.
 6. Switch to or start PowerPoint.
 7. On the Insert menu, click Picture.
 8. Select the graphic and click Import. NOTE: If you are using a Macintosh
computer and see this message, you should verify whether QuickTime is
present. QuickTime, if correctly installed, is located in the Extensions
folder. If you are running System 7.5 or later, run Extension Manager,
located in the Control Panels folder, and verify that QuickTime is enabled.
