Stuffit Expander is a product of Aladdin Systems, Inc. The StuffIt Expander is freeware, you can download a FREE copy by clicking this graphic:

Q: What is included in a single set?
A single set contains 10 different background templates*. Each individual template consists of a title slide, bullet list, bar chart, line graph, pie chart, diagram, a blank page and finally a complimentary color scheme.
Not forgetting the step-by-step instructions.
*=The only exception to 10 backgrounds per set are the Animated backgrounds, Animated slides, Power point maps and PowerPoint Games which have 1 or 2 backgrounds.
Q: Are the downloaded files "ready to go" ?
We've made it as easy as possible for you to use our backgrounds within minutes. You do not have to put these images in powerpoint, as we have done it already. These are real powerpoint files. We have done all the hard work for you.
The downloaded files are "self extracting" .exe files. You just double click them, browse to a directory where you would like to extract the backgrounds to, then click "Un-Zip". This saves you having to download 10 individual files, as you just download one file. You do not need to have WinZip or a similar type of software package installed.

The watermark that appears on the preview images on our website does not appear on the downloaded product.
