    Please help. I have several images on a PowerPoint slide, and I want to make all but one fade when I click the mouse.

    Is there a feature that will let me fade (or drown out the color) of the images, while still keeping them there?

    Thanks!

    Techguy41, I can't find the information about the "emphasis" feature...and I looked extensively in the help guide. Can you tell me where I'd find it? Thanks.

    AFAI can establish, "add effect ... entrance, emphasis, exit, motion paths" applies only to Office XP and beyond.

    I couldn't find any help for fading out for P-Point 2000 & before. The Visual Basic Editor didn't help either.

    >> drown out the color

    You could in theory insert a copy of your first image, format it as watercolour, group it with your second image, and position it so that when it kicks in, the watermark portion (of the object) sits on top of (and obscures) the first image. But the more images you had, the messier it would get. Plus it would switch straight to watermark, not fade ; for that, you'd probably need a freebie gif animator.
