Prezi has introduced three new features which will make it even easier for users to get to grips with creating zooming presentations on an ‘infinite’ canvas.
November 2011 – Colouring text feature
- Spooky, when Curtis, Jac and I last met in Brighton we were saying this would be a good (essential) feature, and so it is nice that Prezi now lets you highlight text and select a colour; previously each section of text had to be one uniform colour.
October 2011 – Path thumbnails
- My favourite new feature – instead of having to play in show mode to check you have the right bit captured in the frame or path, you get to see thumbnails at the bottom showing the progression. The best bit is, that as with all Prezis, you are not limited to the path and can always go ‘off piste’ and then return to the path if useful.
September 2011 – Prezi templates
- This makes it very fast to create a Prezi presentation. The positive side maybe that more people get engaged with Prezi; the downside maybe that Prezi presentations become more uniform and similar. I am working on improving my latest Prezi which started off with one of their templates. This is very much a work in progress (Kaptur Prezi).
