  1. Hi John,
    I never know the tips you gave. Going to look for it!

    Images can help to show our Internet savviness and knowledge of popular internet culture. Making a point in our blog post? Are there any memes that have recently gone viral? Using them to help support our point is smart bet.

  2. This is a great post, I hadn’t realised how powerful PowerPoint could be until I started to read your blog. I have used it for making slides but didn’t know that you could do graphics in it. I usually use Paint.net but I might throw a few images together in PP to have a play.

    The online clip art resource is great for doing these kinds of images and you never need to worry about people contacting you over misuse and copyright issues of their images… I have at times been a bit naughty with that. 🙂

    It is posts like these that really make the difference, very helpful and not just about me me me as many of them are these days. A lot of people can walk away now and do something that they never could do before.

  3. Hi John,
    It’s funny, because just this morning (My time zone), I Googled to see if there was a way to convert PowerPoint images into JPEG. This way, I could create my own blog post photos, instead of having to download and upload photos.

    Then I received your email on the topic about 15 mins. ago. BTW, I’m waiting for my pay to hit my account tonight and then…I’ll do as I said and purchase the infographic product. I might be able to squeeze in another product purchase as well. If not tonight, then as soon as I can. I’m loving your posts and give-aways. Thanks so much!

  4. Hi John,

    I’m a Late Latif this time round! Delighted to discover Clipart particularly since the images are free and do not require credits – an important point for anyone who has had a hacked website since hackers and spammers do like to get in through images if they cannot get in through a login route.

    My technique is similar except I save the power point as a Jpeg file and try to create my own images. This is far better, less time consuming and exciting!
