Do presentations like a pro
ZoomIt is a productivity tool that comes in handy when presenting content to other people. As the title suggests, ZoomIt allows you to zoom in on your powerpoint slideshows, documents, and any other multimedia presentation to make it easier for you to tackle specific points. ZoomIt also features other helpful tools to make your delivery smoother and on point.
Dive in the details
When you first launch ZoomIt, a dialogue box will appear to let you set your preferred hotkeys or shortcut keys for the software’s main functions if you happen to find its default setting unnatural or uncomfortable. Of course, if you have no issues with ZoomIt’s preset hotkeys, then it is perfectly okay to just settle with that. After everything has been set, ZoomIt is ready for use. As it is not an intrusive tool, you will not see any open window on your screen as you do your presentation. It runs in the background and lies in wait until you press on the hotkey that will automatically activate it.
Your screen will zoom in on your on-screen content and you can control its depth by scrolling up and down. Alternatively, you can also zoom in and out using the up and down keys on your keyboard. To navigate and focus on one part of your presentation, simply click on the area that you want a close-up of and ZoomIt will quickly jump to zoom in on that particular spot. You can also still adjust the zoomed-in image by pressing on your right mouse click and dragging it around until you find the perfect view. Once settled, left-click again to render the image frozen. If you are done discussing and would like to return to normal view, either press escape or double click on your screen.
Emphasize your points
Zooming in on your presentation is not the only thing that ZoomIt is capable of. To help you better in delivering your main discussion points, there are tools that will allow you to draw and highlight the elements of your multimedia presentation. Using another one of your hotkeys, ZoomIt can enter draw and type mode. These two features allow you to underline, circle, highlight words, and type in your own texts over the presentation without permanently applying those changes on your content. This way, you and your audience can focus on the most important points of the presentation.
ZoomIt saves you from delays and interruptions that you usually encounter when doing live presentations. You no longer have to fumble with other commands and launch third-party tools in an effort to deliver your points across in the most effective way possible. Through the use of hotkeys and a few clicks, ZoomIt gives you complete control over your presentation.
