Prezi joins Obama’s ConnectED!

Prezi joins Obama’s ConnectED! Last week, Prezi CEO Peter Arvai and President Obama announced a partnership for Obama’s new initiative ConnectED. We are really proud to say that Prezi joined ConnectED together with Adobe! Prezi’s commitment will provide 100 million dollar in Edu Pro Licences to hundreds of thousands of high schools and other educators, so more people can start using Prezi.

Obama wants to enrich the American education system by this initiative and his goal is to have 99% of the American students working with wireless technology and educational technology in classrooms within 5 years. Obama also wants middle class students to have opportunities for a better future and a better preparation for an education. A chance for everyone, and that’s what we think is a great initiative!

To reach this goal it’s important to work together with different companies that are future oriented concerning technology. That’s why Apple made 100 million dollar available in iPads, MacBooks and other products, has AT&T made more than 100 million dollar available to give free internet connectivity for at least three years to the students from the middle class and has Microsoft announced a huge discount on all Microsoft systems. This all is only for one purpose: create a new generation students of which everybody has a chance to work with the newest technologies.

Not only Prezi, but also Adobe joined the partnership. They share program software like Photoshop, Elements and EchoSign with a value of 300 million dollar. Obama announced the partnership with Prezi and Adobe during the student ‘film festival’ in the White House, where more than 2500 students created short movies about how they see the future in school, how they learn at this moment and how they use technologic developments in the classrooms. Are you curious about the videos of the children? You can watch them here!

Of course we’d also like to share the speech of Obama and the announcement of Peter Arvai before his visit to the White House!

Adding effects to your images in Prezi from now!

From now on you won’t need a photo editing program anymore to edit your images, because you can do this all in Prezi with the new function “Effects”. Give your image a nice effect or add a frame to it. Is your photo too light or too dark? No problem. Just edit it in Prezi!

How?
That’s really easy! Click on the image you want to edit and after click the appearing menu or “Effects”. A new window will open so you can start editing your image by yourself.

Important:
You’ll only see the first three options with a free account. To see every option you’ll need a Pro or EDU Pro account. The options you’ll get to see at a free account are: Enhance, Effects and Frames.

Today we’ll check out the option “Effects”. As example we found a pretty image of a Dutch mill. Of course this mill is already a lot of years old, but what did it look like ages ago? We’re about to find out.

In the top part of your screen you see all different miniatures of the original image with an effect. Choose the effect you’d like to adjust on your image and choose Apply. You changed your mind? No problem. Just click Cancel.

When you clicked Apply you’ll get back to the first menu. Click Save to save the effect and place your image into your prezi. That’s how easy it is, editing and adjusting effects on your images in Prezi!

So, with a Pro account you have some more options. Below you can find a brief explanation about all the effects:

All license types:

Enhance

  • High-Def: Sharpes and defines your image.
  • Illuminate: Fixes lightning issues.
  • Color Fix: Performs colors in a perfect way.

Effects: You can choose from a lot different filters with this option, which you can apply on your image. Above we’ve already told you how to adjust these effects on your image.

Frames: Add frames to your images to let them stand out more.

Effects: Met deze optie kun je kiezen uit heel veel verschillende filters die je kunt toepassen op je afbeelding. Hierboven hebben we al beschreven hoe je deze effecten kunt toepassen op je afbeelding.

Frames: Voeg kaders toe aan je afbeeldingen om ze meer op te laten vallen.

Options for Pro and Edu Pro Licences:

Focus: Focus on a certain part of your image, by using a circle or square.

Warmth: Give your image a warm tint by dragging the slider to the right and a cool tint by dragging the slider to the left.

Brightness: Is your image a little bit too light or too dark? No problem. Using this option will solve it.

Contrast: Give your images a little bit more or less contrast by dragging the slider.

Saturation: Do you want more color, or black and white? Change the saturation of your image with the slider.

Sharpness: Isn’t your image sharp enough? Use the slider at the top part of your screen to give your image more or less sharpness.

Splash: This is a really nice option! You can get black and white images with colored elements with this tool. When you choose this option your image will turn black and white automatically. Use one of the following options to color the elements:

  • Free color: This option allows you to bring back all color when applied.
  • Smart color: This option only brings back one color at the time.
  • Eraser: Use the eraser to change the colors back to black and white.

Redeye: Use this option to erase red eyes of an image. Click on the red eyes to erase them. Be aware: this option only erases red spots. With another color this option won’t work.

Whiten: Use this option to brighten white parts in an image. You can control the size of your brush in the top of your screen.

Blemish: You can erase blemishes with this option. Click with the brush on the part of the image you’d like to vague. You can control the size of your brush in the top of your screen.

The best way to get to know the effects is by using them. Open a new prezi, add some images and get started! If you have any questions about the effects or the use, please contact us. We’d love to help.

Our result after playing with different effects:

Visual takes over

Do you know them? Those presentations that seem to last for ever? Where you’re concentrated as long as a goldfish? A presentation without impetus? Speakers with a monotone voice and those horrible, endless texts on the presentation screen?

Well, you’re not the only one. But do you know what? Those persons often don’t know that it could be different. Or they’re just stubborn. You can’t blame them. It’s their way of presenting and they assume their story is so interesting they don’t need to be enthusiastic or to be creative.

But, how is it possible that we actually dó watch Mythbusters and we actually are interested by the most complicated physical matters? And we even understand those matters? That’s the art of presenting visual, translating a thought to a picture. Association and visualization, that’s something why your audience will remember your story and maybe even tell it to other people.

Let’s go back in time for a minute. In the last century, professor Roger Sperry did research on the brains. He discovered that our two hemispheres don’t function the same. Actually, the’re almost the opposite of each other. Our left hemisphere mostly focuses at lists, logic and linearity. While our right hemisphere is specialized in images, symbols and fantasy. We use them both to learn and remember, but still there are a lot of people who mainly focus at the left hemisphere: lists and bullets. Of course there’s nothing wrong with that, but our right hemisphere is at least as important! Because precise this part of our brain works on a base of associations. This means you connect between new information and something that you already know. And what does that need? Right! Images, words, numbers, symbols, colors, smells. And that’s why we have it, that right hemisphere!

Dan Roam is a visual thinker with a few books on his name. He is a proponent of presenting visually and uses his right hemisphere more than many others. In his book The Back of the Napkin, he tells what to keep in mind to make sure your presentation will be visual and to make sure that the information sticks at your audience. His tip? Draw! By the help of his 6 step plan (see image). By creating images with the information, the audience will automatically make associations because the brain saves the information better.

But what if you don’t dare to grab those pencils? Or if you have an audience too big, so the drawings won’t be visible on a flip over? Than there’s another tool. A tool we’re in love with: Prezi! In Prezi it’s possible to add pretty nice symbols and shapes that can finish your presentation. No endless texts, frustrated looks, yawing audience or messing with pencils. Just click “Insert Symbols & Shapes” and you can get to work. Do you miss the symbols? You can easily add them yourself by using the Insert function.

This way makes sure you stimulate the right hemisphere of your audience, just like they do that at Mythbusters. Involve your audience and make them think, visualize and associate.

Want to bet it’ll work?

Interview with Pascal van Steen

With his 23 years, Pascal is one of the younger Prezi ambassadors from over the world. At Avans Hogeschool in Breda he taught students about Prezi and he gave seminars about online marketing. He himself is studying Small Business & Retail Management at Avans and he tries to put all his creativity in creating the most beautiful prezis. One of his newest babies is his ‘prezumé’: his own resumé in Prezi. Meanwhile his prezumé has over 23.000 views and his reusable prezumé template is used even more than 900 times. As a new popular Prezi user he is a busy man, but we were allowed to talk to him for a moment.

1: How long do you already work with Prezi and what for do you use it?
When I started my current education program in September 2011, a teacher told us during the first college that he liked presentations in Prezi more than the ones in PowerPoint. It seemed clever to look what it exactly was. When I tried Prezi for the first time, it already became clear that I could lose my creative compulsion way more than in the alternative; PowerPoint. From that moment I stuck with Prezi.

2: Why are you so enthusiastic about Prezi?
I value a lot to creativity and that’s why I believe that your message sticks with the audience way better by supporting your story visually and by visualizing relations between subjects. A lot of other creative minds think the same about this, by the way! Prezi offers me the opportunity to actually do this and that’s why I think it’s the best tool to share your ideas.

3: Where do you find inspiration for a beautiful prezi?
That’s different every time, but I do notice I try to image them as “Infographics”. This means I visualize information by using simplistic logos, images and symbols. I also watch a lot of presentations from others and I try to pay attention to the structure others use in their presentations.

4: Do you create the graphics in your prezi yourself?
At the moment I use the “Simple black” and “Simple white”-shapes from Prezi a lot; those are available for everyone. Besides I design some things by myself, especially using Adobe Illustrator for vector images and Adobe Photoshop for photo editing.

5: What brought you to the idea of creating a prezumé in Prezi?
I was looking for an internship for school and thought about ways to be noticed in between all the other candidates. Very soon I came by Prezi. Ironically I haven’t got a reaction from the company I initially created the prezi for. After that I translated it to English and asked people for feedback on LinkedIn. From that moment I honestly have gotten almost only positive reactions about the prezumé and the ball started rolling.

6: What do you think of the great interest people have for your prezumé?
Of course it’s always nice to get attention for something you’ve put a lot of time in! But actually, I never thought the prezumé would be such a popular success. I know have people on Skype from all over the world who I give feedback on their presentations. That’s really fun to do!

7: Did the prezumé really helped by finding a job/internship?
Yes. I have found an internship at a company that wanted to re-craft their sales trainings; both related to the content as visual. During my application I used my prezumé to pitch myself and my manager was almost immediately blown away. I also aroused interest at more companies. I received different e-mails from the “Head of International” at Prezi, who offered me an internship, as well as companies from South-Africa, Mexico and China. These are now all options for my graduation internship. I think I’m looking at a really good period!

8: Could’ve you used the creativity you put in this prezumé also in another tool?
Nowadays there are a few other tools available to create such a resume. Think for instance about start-ups like Sozi, Mural.ly and Emaze. However they don’t exactly have the same functionality as Prezi, people can use it to present and cooperate in a creative way. Still, I think usability is also very important and that’s what I think works best within Prezi.

9: Do you have tips for the Prezi user, about creating a prezumé?
Keep it simple! A prezi is the most effective when you don’t put too much information into it. Also keep an eye on the use of the different Prezi effects. Try to avoid too many ‘big’ effects, like moving more than 90 degrees in between frames, too deep zooms and too far ‘pans’.

10: How do you feel about zebras? 😉
I really love zebras. It’s maybe a little weird to say, but in the daily life I dress up as a zebra myself. So I’ll feel better. I think some people made some photos about that…

And yes Pascal, those photos are here!

Round images in 7 steps

We already wrote a dutch blog about round images  in Prezi.

Today we’re going to take it one step further, because we’re going to explain you how to create round images with a transparent background. We’re going to do this with the online editing program Pixlr, because not everyone has Adobe Photoshop on his or her computer.

In the other tutorial we worked with a mask, but because of the transparent background this isn’t necessary now. You can place the image for instance in a round frame or on another image.

For this tutorial we’ll use a template from Prezi. Because we’re going to work with round images, we’ve chosen the “Organic” template. This template already has a path; nice! So we won’t have to look at that.

The image:
Before we’re going to work with Pixlr it’s important to look for the right photo material. In this tutorial we’ll use images from the Internet. Be aware that you’re images need to be copyright free.

To stay in the theme of the template, we’ve searched for a photo of a centipede. Go search for a nice image and save it on your laptop or computer (right mouse click -> save image as).
Tip: Save the image in a logical place so you can easily find it again.

Step 1: Pixlr
Open a new tab in your browser and go to www.pixlr.com. You’ll now enter the homepage where you can choose from three different options. Choose the left option: Pixlr Editor. The editor will open.

You saved the image on your computer, so that’s why we’ll choose “Open image from computer”. Choose the image you’ve just saved. This one will be opened in Pixlr.

Step 2: Selection frame
At the left side of the screen you can see all different kinds of tools. Pretty impressive, but fortunately we’ll only need one tool.

We click on “Selection frame tool”, as shown in the image. We now can drag a rectangle frame on our image. But, we won’t do that because we want a round frame. To change the shape of the frame we’ll click on the round shape in top of the screen.

Now we can drag a round frame on our photo, but wait! We want our frame to be perfectly round and Pixlr has a great tool for that. In top of the screen you see “Restriction”. This option will normally stay on “No restriction”. We now choose “Aspect ratio”, so our frame will be perfectly round.

 

Drag it!

Now you can drag a frame on the image. Take the best part from the photo. You can select a big part of the image, but you can also choose a detail. Dragged it? You can now move it to the right position.

Step 3: Invert selection
You’ve selected the part of the image you want to use. Now we need to delete the other part from the image, the one we don’t want to use. When we choose “Delete” now, the selected part of the image will be erased. So that’s why we’ll turn the selection. To do this, we click “Edit” and then “Invert selection”. The selection has been turned.

Step 4: Unlatch the image
Before we’ll erase the background definitive it’s important to unlatch the image. When we don’t do that the background of the image will stay white instead of transparent. At the right side of your screen you see different windows, under which “Layers”. In this window you see a layer named “Background”. Behind this name you see a lock, which means the image layer is locked. Double click on the lock to unlock the layer, the lock will disappear.

Step 5: Erase the background
Now we’ve unlocked the image, we finally can erase the background. Click “Edit” and then “Erase”. You can also delete the background by using the “Delete” button on your keyboard. You can see grey blocks in the background now, it means your background is transparent now.

Step 6: Save image
We now have our image with a transparent background which we can import in Prezi.

Before we’ll do that, we first need to save the image with the right format. Choose “File” and “Save”. A new window will appear.

Pixlr automatically wants to save the image as a .JPEG but that’s not what we want. .JPEG is a file format that can’t adjust transparency, so the background will turn back white again. Instead .JPEG we’ll choose file format .PNG. This format can handle the transparency. Don’t forget to name your image, in our case centipede. Click “OK” and choose a logical location. Your image has been saved.

Step 7: Import into Prezi
Import your photo into Prezi and place it in one of the circle frames. You can walkthrough these steps again for other images so all your circles will be filled with round images. You can also minimize an image and place this at the edge of a circle frame to create a nice effect.
See here our result!

Easy to find and share, folders in Prezi!

Would you like to share more prezis with one mouse click? It’s possible from now on with folders in Prezi. From today all your prezis can be arranged in folders so you can easily find and share them. It’s ideal when you want to share your prezi with a colleague or customer.

Collect your prezis in a folder
With the function “Shared folders” it’s possible for different users to save their prezis in the same folder. This could be very helpful when you’re creating presentations with for instance your colleague or college buddies about the same subject.  Or when you want to show different presentations to a customer. With one mouse click you can now watch all the prezis. There’s no need to use the ‘Share’ option anymore.

Tutorial, how to share a folder
Of course we’d like to explain how to create a folder and how to share it:

Step 1:
Go to the Prezi.com homepage. When you’re signed in you’ll be automatically redirected to ‘Your prezis”. Aren’t you signed in already, do this first. After signing in you’ll automatically go to the ‘Your prezis’ page.

Step 2:
On the left side of the screen you can see the folder “All prezis”. In this folder all your “homemade” prezis automatically appear. You now can create a new folder by clicking ‘New folder…’. Name the folder at the top part of the screen logically and click the blue ‘Rename’ button. That’s it, a new folder has been created.

Step 3:
Drag all the prezis you’d like to share into the folder you just created. You can place a prezi in more folders at the same time without problems so you won’t need a copy.

Step 4:

Click on the folder you’d like to share. After that, click in the top right corner “Add viewer”. Fill up the e-mailadres of the person you’d like to share the folder with and click ‘Add’. The person you shared your folder with receives an e-mail including a link to the folder. When the receiver clicks the link he or she will get access to the shared folder.

Step 5:
When you click on the shared folder you can see with how many people the folder is shared. When you click on the information you can see with which persons the folder is shared and who’s the owner of the folder.

Everyone who has been added to the folder will automatically receive an e-mail when a new prezi is added to the folder. So, you don’t need to bother your colleagues, co-workers or college buddies anymore with e-mails about updates.

When you use a Multi-User License with your company, all the users will automatically be added to the shared folder. When someone is added later to the license group, this person will be added to the shared folders too. All prezis are synoptic collected from now on and could be seen by the whole team.

Not only easy to share
Of course folders aren’t only easy to share prezis, but it also helps with your own structure! Before, the ‘Search prezis’ function was the best way to find back a prezi, especially when you had more than one page filled with prezis. Now you can easily arrange your prezis in folders, so you only need to click on a folder to see all prezis with the same subject.

It works great, those folders!

Prezi Top 10 from 2013 from Prezi University

Just like last year we, from Prezi University, put together a Prezi Top 10. We want to share the most beautiful prezis we have seen in 2013 with you. So you’ll have enough inspiration to kick off 2014.

10. Save the Ocean

A beautiful prezi made by Guilherme Criscuolo.

9. MasterPeace

The MasterPeace prezi from Prezi Day 2013, which Ilco van der Linde presented, but complemented with voice overs from Ilco himself and the videos from his appearance at Prezi Day 2013. Of course you should visit the website from MasterPeace too and like the MasterPeace Facebook page!

8. Putting time in perspective

Winner of the Prezi Awards 2013 in the category ‘Best Zoom’ made by PreziJedi.

7. Pascal’s prezumé

A beautiful example of a curriculum vitae in Prezi, or a prezumé. Made by Pascal van Steen. For the insiders: He also attended Prezi Day 2013, but you probably haven’t recognized him!

6. A Total Disruption

It can take a while before this one is fully loaded, but absolutely worth it!

5. Turn on the poetry

It is that I’ve won the TED-Prezi contest, otherwise I would’ve wanted this prezi to win. This was my favorite. Made by Marcos Xalabarder from Presentationes.biz.

4. The Mercenary

This prezi is used as a teaser for the new magazine EPIC from co-founder Joshua Davis.  The Mercenary is a tale of love, gold and guns  and you can read it for free.

3. Is There Life Out There?

Sara Seager, astrophysicist and planetary scientist at MIT, used this prezi during her presentation ‘A Real Search for Alien Life’ for TEDxCambridge. Just watch it!

2. Image of 2013

Our last prezi made in 2013! This prezi is received really well at the Prezi community and has a place at the Today’s 15 Most Popular Prezis page on Prezi.com and has been watched for already 20.000 times. Of course I’m proud at our team for inventing, collecting all of the information, the simple but beautiful design and the cool effects in Prezi!

1. The Decade of Data

I think this is an amazing prezi. A real prezi-prezi, so with specific Prezi characteristics and less use of well made graphic objects or animations. Finally a prezi with a beautiful (!) use of frames in a way to complete the whole picture. There’s also well reflected on the overview. You see this at the end of the prezi or when you click on the ‘house’ on the right side. The used 3D background is in accordance with both the context of the presentation and the other parts of the design and has exactly that extra touch which gives this prezi an extra visual effect. The prezi doesn’t only look good from the outside, also the context is worth it. Professor Alex ‘Sandy’ Pentland from MIT Human Dynamics Laboratory  used this prezi for his presentation ‘The Decade of Data’. Watch also the video of his presentation here. It’s definitely worth it!

No, of course I won’t place my own prezi first place. Even though I’ve won the worldwide TED-Prezi contest in 2013 with this prezi. But it can’t be missing at the same time. So as a reward (definitely!) my winning prezi IDENTITY, based on the TED talk We need to talk about an injustice from Bryan Stevenson. Do you want to know more about this prezi and the competition? Read my blog we won the TED prezi contest.

Event Report Prezi Inspiration Night

Yesterday evening the eighth edition of the Prezi Inspiration Night took place. A select group met to get inspiration for selfmade prezis, but also to get new ideas for writing a children’s book in Prezi. During the evening different prezis were shown and short presentations were given. The guest speaker of the evening was Paul Naveau; trainer at Prezi University and co-founder of Prezi University Belgium.

The evening began with an inspiring welcoming speech given by Hedwyg van Groenendaal about the use of Pecha Kucha in a prezi. Use 20 images and play each image 20 seconds, I bet you’ll stay to the point and don’t deviate from the topic. Pecha Kucha seems to be an interesting way of presenting, and the opinions about it were divided. Where one person said that a Prezi Kucha provides ‘a nice speed in the presentation’, the other one found Prezi Kucha not necessarily a strength of Prezi. Though everyone agreed on the line “no text in the Prezi Kucha!”, because you can often tell more with visuals than using text.

After Hedwyg’s official welcome the latest flagship of Prezi University was shown; a Christmas Prezi for personal use, which may be copied and edited to share and send your own Christmas wish with all your friends and family. Especially the moving elements did well, because what a cute wobbly ears does the reindeer have in the prezi!

Because the evening kicked off with an explanation about Prezi Kucha, a real Prezi Kucha couldn’t be missed. Ton Oerlemans had the honor to present his first Prezi Kucha. A Prezi Kucha about the love Prezi University has for Prezi, including some background information about the origin of Prezi and the link with TED.

A good an fluent speech which was over really soon! You don’t even notice that you’re listening for 6:40 minutes already and you hope it lasts a little longer. The love for Prezi has a reason, because Prezi.com is one of the most creative companies in the world. An office where scooters are being driven? Yes, please!

Belgium guest speaker Paul Naveau gave the final presentation from the Prezi University team. He created a presentation about “The Revolution in Visual Aid”. An interactive prezi in which the benefit of visual communication became very clear. Paul stated that it is very important to use visuals to excite your audience in a different way. In fact, “If you don’t use visuals in your presentation, your audience will fall asleep. That’s not what you want, right?” Says Paul.

The two most fun elements that may not be forgotten in a prezi are info graphics and live sketches. Nothing is more fun than seeing what someone is drawing during a presentation to make it even more visual. The same applies to info graphics. Don’t you think it’s much more fun to see drawings with statistics than those centuries-old tables?

The final part of the evening contained personal stories of the guests. One of the guests, Heleen, showed two beautiful prezis that she made herself. She showed that complicated subjects don’t need to be as complicate as they seem and that it’s possible to turn everything into an easy language. Her presentations strongly showed our motto: “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” The evening ended with an inspiring, young illustrator. Sarike has her own illustration company and she focuses on illustrating children’s books. She makes beautiful illustrations with an unique style and she showed some of her visuals to us. Her inspiration to use Prezi? A fantastic prezi about Hansel & Gretel that has motivated her to look beyond paper.
