I wanted to create a postcard-size announcement about my new book, Conquer Email Overload with Better Habits, Etiquette, and Outlook 2007. As usual, PowerPoint was the answer. I first resized the PowerPoint slide, changed the background, and added my art elements and text. Then with one of my favorite applications, ImageExport, I was able to save the slide in a higher resolution jpg than native PowerPoint can produce.
Once the announcement was in jpg format , I popped over to iContact, created a new message, and inserted the jpg. Then I hyperlinked it to the Webpage I want you to click to.
Note: Below are links to other articles in my blog that will help you do something like this (with videos).
The moral of this story is that you can use software you already have to get the job done with ease. All you have to do is learn how to use it.
