Presentation Marker portable and setup versions
When it comes to deploying this tool on your PC, you can either install it or not, depending on your needs. The developers are offering you an installer version of the tool, as well as a portable one.
The perks of any portable software solution include not creating additional files or folders on the target PC, as well as not tampering with any entry in that system’s registry.
More so, portable means no installation, but it also eliminates the need for uninstalling an app once you don’t need it anymore. Just remove the local files and you’re done.
However, note that you can install Presentation Marker on your PC with minimum efforts. You just need to accept the EULA, define the destination path on your PC and toggle shortcut creation. The wizard handles the rest of the process automatically, without any additional help.
How to use Presentation Marker
During your presentations, you can use Presentation Marker to create annotations straight on your screen. Furthermore, you can also zoom in on certain areas for effective and quick explanations. That way, your audience will benefit from a clearer understanding of your material.
To create a new marking, select the tool you want to work with and start drawing. You can choose from a pen, a shape recognition tool, a brush, a line, a polygon tool, a rectangle, or an ellipse.
Enhance your presentations with Presentation Marker
Aside from letting you perform live markings on your screen, Presentation Marker can also help you do other things. For instance, you can use a text tool to type content on your presentations without having to modify it. The same goes for pictures. You just select the image tool, then choose your favorite picture to append to your live presentation.
If you want to highlight a certain part of your project, there’s a spotlight tool you can use. What this feature does is darken the area around your point of interest. As a matter of fact, it works similarly to an actual spotlight, so you might say it deserves its name.
You can also add virtual curtains, for when you want to perform a big reveal to your audience. Presentation Marker also allows you to display a clock on your presentations if you use to run them in full-screen and need to keep track of the time seamlessly.
