The walking-the-tightrope concept can be applied to many situations: decision making, negotiating a narrow opportunity, finding a niche, careful progress, and so on. There are two versions of these illustrations:
- V01, 03, and 05 is a PowerPoint download that contains the illustrations broken up into separate fields. These fields can be colored like clipart. Applying color can sync the illustration to your template (hues of your template colors, as in the example above) or you can make it look realistic (brown hair, blue eyes, etc., without regard to template color considerations).
- V02, 04, and 06 is a PowerPoint download that contains the illustrations in PNG format, which cannot be broken up or edited. They are available for use as a black and white illustration, which may work just fine for you. Using the PNG format means that you don't have to deal with many fields. If you are using PowerPoint 2007, however, you can recolor the PNGs using the picture recoloring option.
Each of the two versions have the full series of Stanleys in the download. This assures that the sizing is exact and ready for your use. Remember, as with all groups of illustrations or graphics, if you need to resize, resize them all together as a group. Then ungroup and redistribute to their proper place in the presentation.
Be sure to check the tutorial for formatting and animation techniques. Also, be sure to download the animated example to see Stanley teeter on the wire. The animation is very subtle, so it will not distract from the message you are conveying – just enough to add a little interest.
Please be aware that the download files are a little larger than most PowerFrameworks downloads. It may take a few seconds longer, so don't be alarmed.
