This class was an eye-opener. The corporate world exposed me to only the ho-hum boring world of fall asleep during the meeting because of a boring power point presentations. For that reason, Power Point has been a hurdle I needed to overcome. This class opened my eyes to the even greater world of Power Point.

I didn't know PowerPoint was so versatile for creating images. Thanks, Rebecca, for showing us how easily this works.
If you have PowerPoint, I highly recommend this class. There is so much you can do in PowerPoint to create graphics, remove background, etc. and Rebecca takes you step-by-step through the process. I love when I can save money by using tools and resources I already have.
