Have you scanned JPG files for sharing with us? I created a tool which can
help. This is a MS PowerPoint 97 file with macros.. Instructions are inside on 3
slides. This tool will take the file name and parse it into a caption and put
them into a web page and/or PowerPoint slide show for you. You can read the
details by loading the Tool Here.
PowerPoint 97 or higher is required and it only works on IBM PC
- Download the tool by
clicking here. The macros are
safe. Do a File-SaveAs to capture the tool to your disk.
- Name all your JPG
files for conversion to slide and picture captions. Avoid spaces and all
capitals letters will have a space added in the captioning process. Place
all the files for inclusion in one folder.
- File-Open and browse
to the folder with the desired JPGs & Cancel, because there is no PPT to
load. You are just changing the default directory.
- Tools-Marco-Run ‘LoadPicturesLandscapeWithCaptions’
and all JPGs will be pulled into PowerPoint and 2 HTM files in the default
directory will be written, one to ‘display’ the pictures and that will
hyperlink ‘index’ to the pictures.
