Five noteworthy PowerPoint add-ons

Perspector

 

Perspector provides an easy outlet for anyone who wants to create snazzy 3D objects for their PowerPoint slides. The 30-day trial version is plagued with in-your-face nag screens trying to get you to buy the product and subscribe to its newsletter. But once you thrash your way past them, you can begin to explore the options in the Perspector Panel, which appears in the PowerPoint window.

You can insert an image or list from the Perspector Library, create a new 3D image, or convert an existing list or shape into a 3D image. Perspector opens an editing window where you choose the desired options . You can save your images in the Library as Users Images.

TechCrunch I think you killed OfficeTimeline2012. Also, apparently TechCrunch readers really want that particular enhancement.

Hi, we're hosted on GoDaddy on a shared server and I must admit - it's been a pretty bad experience being on a shared server. The servers are pretty slow and non-responsive when there's any real traffic. BUT! As a small business where we actually have a normal day job on top of our passion for trying to be entrepreneurial, it's really hard for us to justify paying a ton for dedicated hosting. If folks out there have good experience with another ISP that's affordable, we'd love to know! Thanks, Inesse Manucharyan | Office Timeline
