      • Have a large PPT with all images/items and create special Shows
      • Can save multiple version in one PPT

    • Sharing assumes you want to distribute
      • Sharing a PPT not always best option
      • Not everyone has PPT or viewer
    • Optional formats
      • PDF to ensure all can view (use Publish as PDF or XPS Add-In from Microsoft)

      • Do much of the same - buy an iPod with $ saved
