I have not used Picture Trail but have used Slide. If they are similar then doesn't it generate some code for you? If this is the case then you open an HTML box on your BV page and insert the generated code into it (copy and paste). You may then have to play around with the size and positioning of the box to get it just right. If this is bogus info - I apologise and someone else will be along shortly to assist. http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/images/icons/icon10.gif

Amanda - You are correct! ;)

Picture Trail gives you an HTML code so after you have your photo flick all laid out how you want it.
Just copy the code and follow Amanda's instructions. open the properties for the html box (double click on the html box, or right click to find "properties") and paste the code.

It should work - to test it click on the preview button in bv.
be sure to save the page before you publish it.

I've never used power point, but I research it for you. I think if you open an “Embedded OLE object”... then scroll down to power point slide or presentation and select it or to use a file located on your computer, click on the select from file... the browse for the file.
I hope that helps.

If it does,thats cool! Maybe now is a good time for me to start learning Power Point :)

okay lets see...
now you found the file you wanted and opened it right?
Then hit ok?
Did you try previewing it in your browser to see if it is there?

That happens sometimes it dosen't seem to be on the page, but when you preview it shows up.
If it dosen't work hopefully someone else will come along and help out.
I've never used the ole before.
