Prezi is a presentation software that is different than most. This is because instead of having slides it uses one sheet but it just moves and zooms and rotates around to reveal different text and pictures. We looked at prezi because we were working on different presentation software including Haiku Deck and Powtoon.
What I Learned
I learned that you can make text fade in to slides. I have expanded on this to find a way to make the text also fade out. Used in the right way this can make very interesting Prezis.
Click on the colour select tool
Select the green and hit delete till all the green is gone

Use the fuzzy select to select the white, go to the layers tab, transparency, and click add alpha channel
Hit delete and voila you are done!
