iSpring is a product for millions of people who know how to use PowerPoint. It helps them create Flash movies without any experience in Flash technology. Is it really possible? Yes!

Creating Flash banners in PowerPoint with iSpring is not just possible, but even easy and fast.

PowerPoint offers an extensive range of effects and facilities for creating animated content.

It is quite easy to make your PowerPoint texts or images rotating, flying, fading, etc. You just need to gather all these things and let iSpring output them into a Flash banner.

   

We've divided our tutorial into four easy steps.

I. Creating the banner in PowerPoint

II. Making the slides advance automatically

III. Linking the banner to your web site

IV. Publishing the banner
