I bought my first Apple a month ago, a 17" MacBook Pro. I am a lawyer (boo, hiss) that does a lot of two to four day long jury trials (we call the area of law "insurance defense work"). I see opposing counsel do very impressive powerponts during their opening statements and closing arguments in which graphics, photos, and even film clips of expert witness testimony is interwoven seemless, and go figure, I want to do the same. I DO have Office for Mac (and I also have Bootcamp and Windows XP and MS Office enabling me to run my Mac as a PC) and therefor can go the MS Powerpoint route if I must, but I am totally at a loss to understand why Apple does not have it's own competitive software version/alternative to "powerpoint". Isn't Apple the undisputed king of multimedia and graphics capabilities? Is the concept of slide shows and easy flexible cutting, pasting, and blending of scanned images, text, graphics, and movies so inherently business-oriented that it should be the exclusive domain of MS? I wouldn't normally think so, but it sure seems to be true. My 13 year old son, who has much more computer savvy than I, tells me that I theoretically could do the same things using IPhoto. But, my thick guide, "Mac OS X Tiger, the Missing Manual" by David Pogue seems to have nary a word on the whole subject which leaves me, again, scratching my head. And and all suggestions are welcome. Should I forget about IPhoto and use Powerpoint for Mac, should I instead use my Mac as a PC and use MS Powerpoint for Windows, or should I do use another program entirely?
