Not Powerpoint, so which software do you recommend and why?

ProShow has been used by a friend and to his credit managed to convert his best 35 mm slide shows for digital projection. He was given a lot of help by the keen Photographer members of his camera club though housebound nowadays.

I have Powerpoint as part of MS Office, but there must be better ones.

I'm not in anyway involved with this commercially and am becoming rather old to beat a steep learning curve {lazy).

Ideally the chosen software is free, or cheap and can be used easily, without ages spent trying to understand the rules?

A slightly different response to those given is to download the Libre Office suite. One of the programmes offered is Presentation. To all intents and purposes it is a PowerPoint look alike. I find it far more versatile than PPT.

Have set off using PowerPoint, swept aside the prejudice which some people have, expect to learn something and stop being lazy.

Thank you for your input.

There is a reason why PowerPoint is used so much and that is because it is good.
