Default Free Presentation Software?


I want to make some Flash and/or image presentations for the how-to tutorial of a website. I know of but it is way to expensive. Isn't there a free app for this? Where you can join jpeg images and fill in some text for a small tutorial?

Okay, um. Outside of making a stack of web pages with pictures and links on them (which can be done for free with notepad), you ain't gonna get FLASH like tutorial results easily.

If you have MS-Office you could use Power-Point for image presentations that could easily be made into a tutorial-like thingy.

Still, if you're gonna be doing this seriously (and more than a couple times) I would tell you to put the money on Macromedia and be done with it.

Hey happy5, I know we shouldn't discuss this but anyways, have you ever heard of such things as cracks/serials/keygens?

I do have Open Office - thanks for letting me know that the program could do that. Its similar to the option of creating a PDF document - why buy Adobe Composer or spend time downloading a crack that works when you can do it easily and neatly for free? As for the other two responses, get a life.

I obviously know how to capture images... just wanted a small and easy program to use to prepare a presentation. And I do know what cracks are... its just that nowadays Iïm trying to use things that are free and work vs things that half work but need a credit card or a key gen.

I do have Macromedia Flash, but Iïm not going through another learning curve just for a couple of presentations. If thereïs a program that does solely what I need then great

Thanks for your responses.
