    I've never used PowerPoint. As a matter of fact, I don't think I've even been in the same building with anyone who was running it. Point being, I know absolutely nothing about it; but, someone told me recently that it might do something I need to do.

    I want to be able to connect a digital camera to my USB port and display the pictures in real time, sort of like a surveilance monitor, full screen and in real time. (again, emphasis on Full Screen and Real Time)

    Is it true or not that PowerPoint will handle this job?

    You ask.."I want to be able to connect a digital camera to my USB port and display the pictures in real time, sort of like a surveilance monitor, full screen and in real time. (again, emphasis on Full Screen and Real Time)

    I'm afraid not :(

    PowerPoint is designed mostly for presentations. While it can handle large images, graphics, and spreadsheets I have yet to see it accomodate real-time :(

    Hmmm....the software that came with my camera does that...but not Full Screen.

    I'm sure there's other digi-cam software out there, tho...

    It has to be full-screen and real-time--maybe a toolbar on one edge; but, other than that, full screen
