Hi, my name's Dave Andrews. Today I'm going to show you how to make a video using PowerPoint. Let's go to our computer. We're just going to open up Microsoft PowerPoint by clicking on our Start button, then go to All Programs and let's find Microsoft Office. We just want to launch Microsoft PowerPoint. Now what I'm going to do here is I'm going to drop some pictures and a video into a PowerPoint, into PowerPoint slides, and then I'm going to show you how you can easily show that on your computer. Let's add a title to it. I'm just going to call it My Slide Video Slide Show. Then over here on the left, I'm going to insert some new slides by right clicking saying New Slide. Let's go to the Insert at the top and click on Picture. And I have some pictures here from when I went to Hawaii. I'm just going to pick a few of these. And there's one picture. I'm going to insert a new slide. And let's go to Insert and then Picture again. There's the garden in the Honolulu Airport. And I'm going to put a video. Just right click a new slide and let's go to Insert and then over here on the right let's click on Media Clips and select Movie. I'm going to insert this picture of a movie of a butterfly here. Now I want it to start automatically when this slide comes up. So let's test our slide show by clicking back on the very first slide, going to Slide Show at the top, and saying from beginning. Here's my video slide show and it's going to show my pictures from Hawaii as well as the butterfly video at the end. Now to make this easy to play on your computer to where it'll come up and play immediately when you open it, let's go to file and then Save As. And now for the type of slide show we're going to select, let me find it here, we're going to select PowerPoint Show. Just click on Show, and I'm going to put it on my desktop and call it my video slide show. Now since that's a show, it will immediately open and start playing when you open it. And there you have My Video Slide Show. My name's Dave Andrews and I've just showed you how to make a video using PowerPoint.
