cfpresentation: presenter image tips

written by Geoff Bowers on Friday, 7 September, 2007 @ 02:37 PM

One of the new CF8 tags I want to leverage in my Inspire session at MAX is CFPRESENTATION. CF8 commandeers the old Breeze "presenter" engine for generating Flash based presentations that resemble fancy online Powerpoints. As a trainer for Breeze I picked up a few tricks that apply to making the most of this interesting new feature of CF8 -- namely the correct image formats to be included in CFPRESENTER.

cfpresenter: image examples

CFPRESENTER lets you nominate a speaker mugshot using the image attribute and another branding asset called a logo. For the best results make sure that:

  • both images must be a JPG or PNG; using a GIF won't throw an error but it won't show anything either
  • speaker mugshot should be exactly 88 x 118 pixels
  • logo image should be exactly 148 x 52 pixels

I've taken the liberty of posting below all the relevant information that can be gleaned from the Adobe Presenter user guide.

5 Enter the name of the new presenter.
Note: The Name text box is the only text box that you must fill in to create a new presenter.
6 (Optional) Enter a job title, such as Vice President.
7 (Optional) Next to the Photo text box, click Browse and navigate to an image file in JPEG or PNG format. The recommended size for a presenter photo is 88 x 118 pixels. After you select an image file, the image appears in the Presenter Photo area on the right. During the presentation, the image is displayed at this exact size in the Presenter viewer.
8 (Optional) Next to the Logo text box, click Browse and navigate to a logo file in JPEG or PNG format. The recommended size for a logo is 148 x 52 pixels. After you select an image file, the image appears in the Logo preview on the right. During the presentation, the logo is displayed at this exact size in the Presenter viewer.
Note: If you added a video file, such as a "talking head" video file of a person speaking, that video is displayed in the logo area. If you add a logo file, the video file takes precedence and the logo will not be displayed.
9 (Optional) Enter an e-mail address.
10 (Optional) In the Biography text box, enter information about the presenter, such as professional and educational credentials, employment history, phone number, or job description.

Hope that helps.
