Ditch the ClipArt: Add Visual Impact to Your Presentations
Image via WikipediaI've talked a lot in the past about adding multi-sensory content to a presentation to make it more engaging. These include audio, video and high-quality photos. In fact, most great presenters advise to avoid the "cartoony" clipart that ships with Windows and Office. One great resource for photos is flickr.com - which allows you to limit your search for creative commons licensed content, often free to use or modify with proper attribution. Ide'e Labs has a really great tool - MultiColor Search Tool -that allows you to search flickr based on color - upto 10. Imagine not only high quality photos in your presentation, but also photos that create a unified color theme.
