I’m lucky I have PowerPoint 2010 now. I had 2007 before, and it did not offer the option to convert the ppt presentation to a video.
I had to search for royalty free pictures, which I found on some Creative Commons sites–where photographers display their pictures and license them for commercial or non-commercial reproduction.
Music for commercial use is also available free. I really wanted something like African drums, and I may change the music score later, but I have not so far been able to find the perfect sound track. I went with danosongs.com again because they offer the best choice and the music is formatted correctly for upload to Youtube. I found free music on other sites but when I tried to insert them into my presentation they were not the correct file type.
I hope it sparks the imagination and makes viewers want to read the book!
