Another PowerPoint Heaven’s update.
New PowerPoint tutorial (Power Cut) submitted by Mukund Nadkarni. While Photoshop and other graphic editing software have Lasso Tool, this tutorial shows you how to extract portion of images from its background just using PowerPoint alone.
PowerPoint Heaven has been undergoing several changes recently. Mainly to get the site more organized and professional. Now to consolidate some of major updates:
Updated logo – The purpose is to bring clarity and makes the logo looks neater. The changes include:
- Lighter cloud
- Added border color on the wordings
- Smaller wordings
- Centered the entire logo
- Fixed some alignment issue
- Added “The Power to Animate”
- Color of shadow has been changed
Updated frontpage layout – The frontpage on PowerPoint Heaven has been updated. The previous layout was limited and disorganized. The new layout will allow more content to be added. In addition, a category on Featured Tutorials has been included.
Added PowerPoint Artwork by Jerry. The artwork shows Squall Leonhart (Impressively in 3D!) from Square Enix’s video game, Final Fantasy VIII. Check out Jerry’s Projects under Recommended Downloads for the artwork.
Version 2.3 of Speech-Over has been released. According to Joel from Speech-Over, it is first-of-a-kind software for quickly and easily adding perfectly-timed voices in animated PowerPoint presentations for multi-media education and training.

New PowerPoint Heaven update!
Added a PowerPoint Game – Eternal Escape.
Eternal Escape is a PowerPoint graphic adventure game (an escape the room genre) well inspired by MOTAS. In this game, you are required to solve the puzzles and riddles provided and make use of objects you found to escape from locked rooms. Story will continue to progress as the level increases. More rooms and levels were be added from time to time.
Storyline: Your role as a young and intelligent scientist, who has been spending years researching on perfect eternity formula. One day, you have been kidnapped by some mysterious guys. When you are awake, you found yourself trapped in a room. You tried escaping. Not knowing the reason of the kidnapping, you soon realize that ransom is not what they want…

I have started a PowerPoint Heaven Discussion Board today. The purpose for this board is to allow sharing and discussion on PowerPoint knowledge, tips and tricks. On top of that, if you have any PowerPoint games, portfolio or artworks to showcase, you can share it there too. The board is currently on its beta testing stage as I still need to test the response and other related stuff. If everything goes fine, it should sucessfully replace the current guestbook feature on PowerPoint Heaven. If you have anything to share, start registering on the board now!

I remember introducing the hand drawn artworks by PointClips earlier on. Thanks to Jeff from PointClips.com, this time you will get to see a short demonstration of the advantages for using PowerPoint artworks as compared to imported graphics. The main casts in this demo are Irene Import and Ned Native. Check this out: http://www.pointclips.com/advantage.html
Now you will probably be wondering the direction of Fikree’s next Pointer’s Way series. Well, apart from getting completely re-designed, the upcoming Pointer’s Way [two] will slightly be different from its predecessor, with a more colorful and cartoony theme. Here’s a sample video of how the game might look like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSwd9V1kkGI
