PowerPlugs includes some amazing eye candy.
PowerPlugs is not a developer product in the strictest possible sense.
But I think it's worth mentioning here anyhow: I can't be the only developer
around who ends up doing presentations with PowerPoint on a fairly regular
basis. What this package gives you is a whole stack of CDs to help make
your PowerPoint presentations more effective and memorable.
Start with a choice of 30,000 new templates. Then you can add 3D animated
title slides and 3D transitions with sound effects—think of some
of the fancy titles you've seen on TV and in films and you'll get the
idea. There's a robust charting tool with plenty of eye candy, new shapes,
and animations for your photos. There's also a training CD titled "Slides
that Win!" which goes beyond the mechanics of PowerPoint to teach you
what works well in a presentation. You can also purchase the various packages
separately if you don't need all the pieces.
Definitely worth a look if making presentations is a part of your job.
