Impress is the slideshow presentation component of OpenOffice.org, a free, open-source application suite available for Mac OS, Windows, Linux, and Solaris. David Rivers explains everything needed to get up and running quickly in OpenOffice.org 2 Impress Getting Started, from navigating the interface to presenting a polished slideshow. He shows how to create and arrange slides, modify master slides, and use notes and handouts. David also covers working with slide content, including how to add images, drawings, text, tables, and charts. He demonstrates how to work with native Impress files as well as files from other popular applications, such as PowerPoint. Exercise files accompany the course.
