Instructions

These volumes contain everything you need to present your own talks. Not only do you now have the latest illustrations ready for instant use in PowerPoint and as high-quality images for print, but you also have Ken Ham's personal instruction to aid you in presenting the "creation" message. We trust that these resources will be vital tools for your ministry, and that they will help you bless, encourage, and strengthen others as they learn to trust the accuracy and authority of God's infallible Word.

Right-click and select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" to save the appropriate files to your hard drive.

We have provided several formats for presenting your message, even if you do not have PowerPoint!

Personal training from Ken Ham

You have two options for learning how to give your own presentation.

  • Play the training QuickTime slideshow, from "Presentation Files." You can advance to the next screen by pressing spacebar. This option requires Apple QuickTime 6.
  • Use PowerPoint or the free PowerPoint Viewer (Windows only) to run the training presentation from "Presentation Files." It will play automatically when opened with Microsoft PowerPoint. This file requires PowerPoint 97 or later for Windows, and PowerPoint 2001 or later for Mac OS 9/X. Macs cannot open the file in PowerPoint 98 Viewer.

PowerPoint and PowerPoint-compatible software

Apple Keynote, Harvard Graphics, Corel Presentations, and many other digital presentation applications support PowerPoint presentation files. Follow these instructions in your respective program.

  • Download and open the PowerPoint presentation.
  • Rearrange the slides if desired.
  • When you are ready, select "View Show" from the "Slide Show" menu in PowerPoint, or choose the equivalent command in your presentation software. Use spacebar or right-arrow to advance slides, use backspace or left arrow to reverse, and press "B" to toggle a blank screen in PowerPoint.

Other presentation software or on-screen use

For software that is not compatible with PowerPoint, or for other on-screen use (email, video, etc.), simply import the specially-formatted JPEGs from "Screen-Quality Images" into your software program. See your program's documentation for instructions.

No presentation software

Even if you do not have PowerPoint or any other presentation software, you still have several options for using these illustrations in your presentation.

  • Install the PowerPoint Viewer. After installation, launch PowerPoint Viewer, open the PowerPoint presentation, set any options you desire, and click "Show." An OS X version of PowerPoint Viewer is also available.
  • In Windows, save all the "Screen-Quality Images" into a folder, arrange the images as desired, then select "View as slide show" from the Picture Tasks bar.
  • Open the QuickTime slideshow from "Presentation Files." This program link will automatically change the size of the slide show to full-screen for your presentation. Advance screens by pressing spacebar, and use left-arrow to move backwards.. End the presentation with Esc. To preview the entire QuickTime Slideshow before giving the presentation, open the QuickTime file directly. This option requires Apple QuickTime 6.
  • Run "Screen-Quality Catalog" from "Additional Software," select "Slideshow Options…" from the "View" menu, set "Display Size" to "full-screen," adjust other options as desired and click OK. Arrange the images in the order you want them to display, then select "Slideshow" from the "View" menu. Use the right-arrow key to advance screens, and the left-arrow key to move backwards.
  • Use Adobe Reader 6 to open a PowerPoint presentation in "Presentation Files." The presentation will automatically start. Use down- or right-arrow to advance slides and up- or left-arrow to reverse. This option requires Adobe Reader 6.

Printing

Several methods are available for printing the illustrations on these volumes. Please note that these illustrations are intended for a landscape print orientation.

  • Print desired pages from the Adobe Acrobat PDF in "Presentation Files." Adobe Acrobat PDF requires Adobe Reader 5 (formerly Adobe Acrobat Reader) or later.
