You may use these animation freely for non-commercial purposes. But you must acknowledge the source. For commercial use, please contact me.

These are built entirely within PowerPoint. Normally, you would use PhotoShop as well for real production work.

Please Note: These examples are designed for PowerPoint 2002 and 2003 for PC. For previous versions, or if you do not have PowerPoint, please download the free PowerPoint Viewer. You will need to install it on your machine.

Then, right click the link, select Save As, and save to your hard drive. Finally, run the saved file from the viewer. They are also graphically intensive.
