5.0 out of 5 stars Installation is a pain, but (1.) it is a Microsoft product, so what did you expect and (2.) Powerpoint is worth it, November 3, 2012

This review is from: Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 (CD-ROM)
Powerpoint 2010 is quite advanced with better features and effects than 2007 (and pretty much destroys 2003 presentations). I am not sure if you want to spend the money just to get some nifty functions that 2007 lacks, but for those who with 2003 or without any kind of Powerpoint, act now. What makes 2010 so great? It now includes a background remover that is simpler to operate then Photoshop and makes presentations look much better. I struggled with backgrounds for years, they always ruined good pictures and made my presentations dorky. Now the problem is solved in a much better way then I imagined. 2010 also has some better picture effects that make clumbsy old 2003's limited effects and 3D really sad. The animation set up has changed as well, it may be a bit odd at first but it is easy to adjust to. While 2010 did save my life because of the BG remover and advanced effects, it really did not change from 2007 much except for the animation interface and a few more animations. However, if you have 2003 you might as well upgrade. Powerpoint 2003's interface is very outdated, the animations are basic, and the effects are limited (plus no background remover), and if you don't have Powerpoint you missing out on an easy to use slide show creator that can become extremely advanced with practice.
