Hi

I am doing house and garden / landscaping work and I am looking for a program that I can paste the photos that I have taken (e.g - the different sections - back yard, patio, living room etc. Just something simple - let's say that I want to show 4 photos for the Patio and then be able to input text describing the changes to be made, preferably with the ability to use drawing tools to circle or point to specific areas.

The MAIN factor is that I will need to email this, and as it will contain quite a number or photos, it will need to be small enough to enable easy quick emailoing. And I guess that the size of the photos would be relevant too.

Have just checked out the demo of the 2007 Microsoft Office. Does anyone have opinions on this new one. And am I correct in thinking that it covers exactly what I am looking for...??

Thanks :thumbsup:

Have you looked at the Presentation module in Open Office 2.2? It can save files as a PowerPoint file.

Thanks Acklan for your suggestion of Office Office which I have taken a look at, but it looks way too complicated for me. Any other ideas??

Many Thanks

Nat

OpenOffice is just about as complicated as Microsoft Office . If all you wanna do is have slides with pictures and text than either will be more than enough. Don't let all the buttons and options scare you.
