Create and Show In-Sync Multimedia Web Presentations Across Devices with Swipe

Robin Good's insight:

Swipe is a new web app which allows you to easily create multimedia web presentations by simply uploading images and PDF files or linking to specific video clips.

Once uploaded, slides can be easily re-titled and can be sorted intuitively in any order you want.

Your final Swipe presentation can be shared with anyone and you can show slides in-sync to anyone viewing. You can even stop or pause video clips that are part of your Swipe presentation as they are being viewed and re-start them when you like.

Swipe-based presentations can be created, edited, delivered and viewed across all kind of screen sizes and devices from desktop computers to smartphones.

Cool features include the ability to preview the next upcoming slide without viewers seeing, private and public settings, and a custom timer that measures your presentation time. 

My comment: Excellent presentation tool for delivering in-sync slideshows. For delivering presentations to an audience you need to factor in a teleconference or audio conferencing tool for the audio part. As it is Swipe it's great for one-to-one or small group conferencing via Skype in which you want to show a presentation in sync with everyone (screen-sharing for groups on Skype is a pro option, it's paid, requires lots of bandwidth and it isn't that great if you don't a lot bandwidth).

The approach used by Swipe to show slides in sync with everyone is very bandwidth effective and makes it possible to use this tool effectively in situations where participants have little bandwidth and use smartphones and tablets, in place of using screen-sharing apps which are bandwidth-hungry solutions.

Easily Create Great HTML5 Presentations That Work Across Devices with Emaze

Easily Create Great HTML5 Presentations That Work Across Devices with Emaze | Presentation Tools |

Robin Good's insight:

Emaze is a new web-based HTML5 presentation builder, that makes it extremely easy for anyone to create effective presentations that can be viewed across different types of screens and devices. Emaze presentations can also be downloaded and played offline as well be embedded on any web site or blog.

Emaze provides a set of ready-made templates that include sample text and images as to make easiest for the user to edit and replace these with its own custom text and images. Emaze supports also the integration of video clips, the creation of different sections within a presentation and the option to make a slideset private or public depending on needs.

My comment: In the same family as and several others, emaze is a great and very promising web-based HTML5 presentation tool.

Easy to use, it sports a clean and simple interface. All operations are intuitive and commands easy to find, though in general many icons-buttons are a bit to small for my taste.

The basic templates are good, above average, but here it is where I would expect additional improvements as these can really make a difference in the usefulness of the whole tool.

Free to use.

Robin Good's insight:

Picadilo is free web-based image editor that includes all of the features and options you would expect from a commercial app. The only thing that a pro would miss are selection tools and image layers, but for anything simpler, this is absolutely a super tool.

Picadilo offers in fact all of the basic tools, from cropping to resizing and to all of the typical image controls. The it adds a mountain of customizable filters and effects, retouching tools of all kinds, the ability to add text easily in a variety of fonts and more (textures, frames).

Multiple editing windows supported.

The final work can be saved in .jpg or .png format or immediately shared to all major social media.

Free to use.

(Thanks to Francesco Guglielmino for kindly suggesting it)

Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, August 27, 2013 6:30 AM

Picadilo è un editor di immagini web based, si tratta di un web eare che possiede finzionalità complete per il trattamento delle imamgini e non richeide lunghi tempi di apprendimento per poter essere utilizzato. La versione libera non consente di usare gli strumenti di selezione più evoluti e di lavorare con i livelli, per il resto offre tutte el altre funzioni: cropping, resizing, rotate, flip, regolazione luminosità, contrasto, saturazione,esposizione, temperatura colore, selezione, ecc.

E' possibile salvare il lavoro finito e condividerlo.

The Free Online Image Editor for All Levels: Open Pixlr

The Free Online Image Editor for All Levels: Open Pixlr | Presentation Tools |

Robin Good's insight:

If I were to recommend an online image/photo editor, that is fast, flexible and that provides all of the tools and features I generally need, I wouldn't hesitate a second in recommending Pixlr.

Not only this free web-based image editor is zippy and responsive as it can get, but it offers three alternative "versions" depending on your needs and skill level.

1) The Open Pixlr Express is the one I use the most, as it offers all of the basic functionalities I generally need, such as cropping, resizing, converting and basic retouching.

2) The Open Pixlr Editor is the advanced version which integrates all of the photo retouching tools you may need, as well as image layers, filters and more.

3) For non-technical people, kids and novices the Open Pixlr-o-Matic offers a perfect solution by integrating all of the key basic functions in an attractive and much simplified interface.

There is also a free mobile version both for Android and one for iPhone/iPad.

Free to use. No regsitration required.

The Free Online Timeline Maker Is Here: Instant Timeline

The Free Online Timeline Maker Is Here: Instant Timeline | Presentation Tools |

Office Timeline is a free timeline maker PowerPoint add-in that allows you to easily create and share beautiful simple timelines, gantt charts, and project schedules.

Robin Good's insight:

Instant Timeline is a new web-based app which allows you to easily create professional-looking timelines and Gannt charts (that you can use and publish anywhere) in a matter of minutes, from any device or OS, and for free.

The process is very simple. You first select the style/look of your template, and then you manually add tasks, dates and milestones that you want to be displayed in your timeline. As a last step you can further personalize the look and appearance of specific elements before seeing your timeline fully displayed on your monitor.

At this point you can go back and edit the data, the look and feel, or download the newly created timeline as PowerPoint or as an image file ready to be used anywhere.

Instant Timeline is a close relative to Office Timeline, a free timeline maker PowerPoint add-in that allows you to easily create and share beautiful timelines, gantt charts, and project schedules inside PowerPoint.

A "Plus" version of Office Timeline (starts at $29.95) allows for even greater visual customization options, for direct copy-paste of data directly from Excel, and the leveraging of a large set of professionally-designed ready-made templates plus the ability to do all these things directly within PowerPoint.

Free to use.
