how do i magnify an image when mousing over in Powerpoint?

I have seen it before, when you mouse over a thumbnail of an object, it
magnifies the image and shows it on the screen.

qountzero,
If you could click on the image that would be easier, triggers are the way
to go there.

If you want to use mouse over though triggers won't work. The best thing to
do then is to make two slides one with the small image and one with the big
image, then on slide one use an action setting on the image that hyperlinks
to the second slide. On that slide create an invisible object, say a
rectangle with no fill and 99% transparency and put it behind the image,
give it an action setting to hyperlink back to slide one.
See this tutorial from magician Glen Millar, who explains it far better than
I can, using the trick to colour an image.

see ZoomIt by sysinternals

"ZoomIt is screen zoom and annotation tool for technical presentations that
include application demonstrations. ZoomIt runs unobtrusively in the tray
and activates with customizable hotkeys to zoom in on an area of the screen,
move around while zoomed, and draw on the zoomed image....

Sounds like a great facility.
Can anybody suggest a way of starting that program automatically either when
Powerpoint opens or, even better, when Powerpoint slide show starts (with
F5).

cheers

Chris,

I believe you run it before you start powerpoint. It just sits there waiting
(in the system tray) for you to trigger it with a special key press (from
memory!)

cheers
