No, these are ready-to-use PowerPoint presentations
with 80-350 slides including text, photos and illustrations.
3. I don’t have Microsoft PowerPoint®,
can I view the slides another way?
Microsoft PowerPoint® “Viewer” is
available as a free download at
Microsoft.com. In addition, if you cannot run PowerPoint®, all
Rose Publishing PowerPoint presentations provide a folder called "JPEGS.” This
folder contains the same slides as the presentations, but in the
Picture Viewer format. Picture Viewer comes preinstalled on many
computers. The results will not be as high quality as the PowerPoint® presentation,
but will be helpful in an emergency.
4. What do I need to have in order to view
and print the notes, handouts, booklet, or catalog?
Your computer must have Adobe Acrobat Reader® 4.0
or higher. If you do not have Adobe® Acrobat® Reader® you

5. I have Microsoft PowerPoint® 2001 or
newer, but my presentation still does not work effectively. What
do I do?
If this happens, exit out of all programs.
Open Microsoft PowerPoint, and open the Rose presentation by clicking
on the File menu, click Open, and select the Rose PowerPoint presentation.
6. Do the Rose PowerPoint presentations have
videos and/or music along with the graphics and information provided?
Currently, Rose PowerPoint presentations
are for teaching use only. They provide the instructor with teacher’s
notes, student handouts, and well-researched, informative information
along with related paintings, photographs, and illustrations. For
this reason, videos and music are not provided.
7. Do I need to have an LCD projector in order
to show my presentations to the rest of the class?
A LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) projector,
projects the image from your computer onto a screen for classroom
viewing. For a more inexpensive route, you can display these PowerPoint
presentations on your computer monitor on your television screen
by using a PC-to-TV converter. Rose Publishing does not provide either
the LCD projector or the PC-to-TV converter.
8. I can open the presentation, however, none
of the hyperlinks work?
The hyperlinks work only while a slide show
is running—not while you are in normal view or slide sorter
