What is Presenter?

Presenter is the universal image viewer on VIN. It aggregates images into a manageable package (by putting them into a slideshow) so you can keep them open on the side while viewing a document separately. 

In addition, images within Presenter for Message Boards are able to lead you back to the text, if any, that is associated with that image or set of images.

Presenter 4 is the latest version. There's also a version for mobile devices.

Where will I find Presenter?

Presenter works the same way everywhere on VIN, such as in rounds transcripts, CE classes, and Message Board discussions, with a few exceptions.  It has many features and tools that allow you to customize your viewing experience. As the technology advances, the VIN wizards can update Presenter without having to change individual images. 

When viewing an image in the Message Boards, click on Slideshow underneath the image or select the View Slideshow button at any post.

If you have set your Boards Preferences to Open in Presenter by default, Presenter will open upon selecting an image within Message Boards. Read more about how to set up your Boards Preferences.

Everywhere else, Presenter will open by default whenever you select an image.

How can I Edit an image? (Message Board images only)

  • Under the image click the Edit Image button
  • Select editing options from the menu under the image and then click Finish.

Annotations

Even on the clearest of pictures, it's not always easy to point out the section of the image you want your audience to see. Use the Annotations tool to direct the viewer's attention exactly where you want it by adding text, highlights, and graphics to your images
