Creating Your Own Project
We'll begin by creating a new presentation in PowerPoint 2003 and setting up the Slide Master template that is used for every slide in the presentation. Then we'll create a title slide with images representing members of the family, plus a detail slide for each member of the family. The images on the first slide will be buttons that link to the detail slides. Some different effects, such as sounds or highlighting may be added that will occur when the button is clicked. Finally, we'll view the slide presentation and test all the buttons.
