  • CT Have we overlooked the skin in manual therapy?

    Here is a link to the presentation I did at Congress on the weekend, "Where Patient and Therapist Physically Meet: Have We Left Out the Skin in Manual Therapy?"

    There are a lot of slides (86) in pdf form, about 37 MB, too big to post as a slideshow here or even a pdf. Luckily google docs accommodates large slide files.

      Thank you, Diane for sharing this.

      I reckon if you can get rid of the backgroud, the size of the file will be less. Anyway I enjoy reading it. :thumbs_up

        Thanks for adding the file Bernard! :angel:

        @Weni, I think I could also have made the file smaller by j-pegging each slide, but some sharpness would have been sacrificed.

              Much smaller - thank you Bernard.
              I took a look at the new file - as I feared, much of the shading behind the text disappeared making the light text hard to read against a light background. Also the shadows around images became suddenly crisp and overshadowed some of the text. These are still-outstanding compatibility issues with macs and non-macs and powerpoint. Powerpoint works on macs, sort of, but not perfectly. Forget keynote - it's as if projectors never heard of keynote. Everyone wants everything in powerpoint all the time. Makes me want to tear out my hair. Good thing it still grows back in quite thick.

                  How do you "compress" a file Bernard? I'm trying to figure out how to do it while creating a pdf.

                    Two possible ways:
                    1/ compress the images firstly (a long process) but good results
                    2/ Use Adobe Pro
                    http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobatpro/?promoid=DTEMY

                    I'm using the second solution.

                    How does one do way # 1? Compress the images firstly? (Sounds much cheaper! )

                      SmallImage is a simple and efficient tool to batch process JPEG files, resize them, recompress them, remove embedded profiles and make them ready for the web or store them efficiently.

                      OK, thanks Bernard.
                      Will you load up the book I sent too?
