I just read about an extremely cool feature coming in Office 2010, thanks to John Goldsmith’s visLog.
The new functionality will help you to remove backgrounds from images, essentially cutting out the subject of a picture and allowing your own backgrounds to show through.
Dave, won’t you register?
Please register, Dave.
Dave, I think it’s time for you to register.
I think it would be best, Dave, if you would register for the Visio 2010 Beta.
Note: the beta period for Visio 2010 is now over.
If you are an IT guy or do business process management, then you should probably check these offers out!
If you peek into the flowchart templates on offer for Visio 2010, you’ll see a new item called Microsoft SharePoint WorkFlow.
If you use SharePoint and need to design workflows, then this might be an exciting new option for those not able to use Visual Studio or not thrilled by SharePoint Designer.
The end of an age of terror is nigh!
Visio 2010 creates a live preview of your master shapes so you don’t have to fiddle and futz around. You don’t have to waste time and effort making low-quality, 32 x 32 icons with 16 colors that still look lousy no matter how much time you spend on them.
It is about time!
As I play with the Office 2010 Technical Preview, I am discovering more new features in Visio 2010 every day.
The live preview stuff is fascinating because it is cool to look and it saves you a lot of time. No more wasted cycles of apply and undo, apply and undo, apply and undo–just hover your mouse over an attribute and Visio shows you what it will look like: live, right on the drawing!
Today I’ll talk about live preview as it applies to formatting, theme colors and theme effects.
The hot-off-the-press Visio 2010 Technical Preview is in my hands, and contains a lot of new features.
One that really catches your eye is the Live Preview for Layout.
