Using your slides to create posters for output using the Smith large format printer

Turning your computer presentation or computer images into slides is a fairly easy process. You need a piece of equipment with a special camera attached to it, which is connected to your computer. In our case, we use a Laser Graphics Film Recorder (LFR) and MacRascol software. The software will translate your file's RGB data into a format that the LFR understands. The LFR translates that data to regular daylight slide film.

What Presentation Software
User Services supports Keynote and PowerPoint for creating desktop, slide and web presentations.  I would also include Adobe Acrobat in the desktop and web presentation family. User Servers offers instruction on using presentation software via, classes, Cds, and DVDs, and on-line resources.  

Be sure to check the UserEd class calendar regularly as new classes are regularly being developed and offered.

Instructional Cds and DVDs are available from the Pearson Hall training center.

Faculty needing help with their presentations for classroom use can contact Academic Technology Services (IT-ATS) for personal assistance.
