I've been chucking images into Power Point for some time now, probably ever since I discovered Google Images.
Normally it is pretty good, although sometimes the images can be a bit low res.
So I asked a professional Presentation Creater what she recommended for Hi Res and "Flickr" was her tip. I found it a bit hard work.
But then i discovered the tool Tag Galaxy
Not only does it suggest a few refinements to your search term but then serves up 235 images from Fickr on a spinning globe. You can then spin through this to find the one you want. You have to try it to see just how "intuitive" this is.
Then a few more clicks and you are grabbing the image from Flickr. Job done.
This app shows up the limitation of Google Images : it only gives you around 20 images for you to glance over. It would seem that the human brain is capable of sorting through many times more images in the search for the right one. Tag Galaxy - like all the best tech - releases the awesome processing power of our brains.
PowerPoint presentations will never be the same again.
