Falling snow added to picture

by quests1 / November 2, 2011 8:43 AM PDT

I have a picture which has a choir logo in the middle and a
black background. I would like to add some falling snowflakes while the picture
is showing on screen. Does anyone know how I can do this without the logo disappearing
off screen? I have PowerPoint and have tried to add a animated Gif image over
it. But alas, no good. Many thanks.

James, sorry to intrude.

I was intrigued by the falling snow images as I hadn't seen any for a while.

But when I clicked both links my Firefox WOT, (Web of Trust), told me snazzyspace had reputation problems.

Here's a link to the WOT page for the first link you gave, http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/snazzyspace.com

With the 2nd link WOT gave me a big pop-up window telling me "This site has a poor reputation", shown here; http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/812/capturehnr.jpg/

I'm not questioning your motives at all. But I wonder why WOT would say that? WOT is a user driven rating site and I know as a result it is subject to false representation, but I thought I would let you know.

I'm using FF4 and didn't get any such warning.

I just put in google and got no warnings on it.

I decided to google WOT and went to the wiki on it.

Mywot.com also has been criticized for allowing users to post untrue
comments and negative ratings for which there may be no rational basis,
and for removing positive comments intended to mitigate the negative
Further criticism of WOT exists over the manner in which they handle
free hosting providers. Free hosting sites are often abused and
consequently harbor a lot of spam and malware sites. This leads to the
domain being rated poorly (often by many thousands or even millions of
users). As websites inherit their domains WOT rating, any website hosted
on a free hosting provider will have a poor rating and a warning
displayed about it whether it is justified or not.[10]
[edit] Lawsuits
In February 2011 Ten companies in Florida
filed a lawsuit against Web of Trust for defamation, violating rights,
conspiracy and manipulating algorithms. The companies requested that Web
of Trust remove ratings and comments that relate to them.[11]
According to the Vesa P. (current CEO of WOT Services Ltd.), the next step in the ongoing lawsuit - which was filed by Career Network Inc. et al - is an oral hearing which will take place in Orlando on August 9th, 2011. [12]

I quite agree

and I have been wondering about WOT for a while now. I can't say about the so-called "Trusted Sources" reviews, but the user-added reviews are certainly subject to abuse. Anyone who has a personal beef about any web site can rate the site whether it is true or false.

I used to use McAfee's SiteAdvisor a while ago but it didn't fit well in my computer, so I moved to WOT, but I am now treating its ratings with a pinch of salt.

I've just tried SiteAdvisor for snazzyspace.com and got a clean report, shown here;

So, no further problems with me, and I wouldn't have considered it further anyway; I never have problems with any links you provide.

I don't know if you are a regular user of this web site, but if so, I wonder if they would be concerned about this apparent false review WOT gives, and if they would want to contact WOT about it.

I just checked it out myself prior to suggesting it, that's all.
