Kagi secure e-commerce site has closed. The add-in is temporarily unavailabe until I set up a new order site. Sorry for the inconvenience
The add-in creates a small three-button toolbar panel. A button that looks like a camera allows you import pictures from scanners and other hardware. A button that looks like a rainbow camera iris lets you import images from any file, folder, mounted volume, SMB directory, as well as USB and FireWire memory cards that mount directories to the desktop. The bulk import button lets PowerPoint users import an entire folder or directory full of pictures.
When the add-in runs, you are presented with a Properties dialog box with several tabs. You can enter descriptive information concerning the pictures you plan to import. You can click OK to bypass this screen.
The add-in then turns control of your computer over to either the device driver (for scanners) or to MacOS (to import pictures from files, directories, etc.). If you have multiple scanners or driver devices you can choose any one of them. If you have chosen to import from files, you can navigate to any file, folder, or directory anywhere on your Mac or on any mounted volume. Pictures are copied into PowerPoint. There is an option to create links to picture files. Linking saves space, but links will break if either the presentation or any of its pictures gets moved, renamed, copied, or otherwise changes relative position from where they were when you created the link.
An Insert Picture menu appears with buttons to control brightness and other features mentioned above. At your option, an entry animation can be selected for each image. A special preview window lets you try various animations.
You can insert as many pictures as you like until your computer runs out of memory. If you choose to link to file you can import thousands of pictures into a single presentation if you so choose.
You will need to know the full path name of the folder containing your pictures if you wish to use the bulk import feature.
