What is the best way to show two images, side by side?

I am working on creating a "Processional" for our high school graduation.  In order to cut down on time, I am going to have two students images show for four seconds, side by side, using the tilt right and tilt left animations.  I want to make sure that the pictures and placeholders with students' names are large enough to see and read.  Any thoughts on adjusting the properties (or anything else) to make this work well?  Thanks!

Personally, I would try some "Transitions" like "Cube Rotate" or many others.  Might be faster.

Thanks, I appreciate your input.  But if I want the students to have four seconds on screen, wouldn't it be faster to have two show at a time?  I don't understand.

Yup.  Two at a time makes perfect sense.  All I was saying is that using "Transitions" might be faster to set up (and look cooler) than "Animations".  I'd experiment a bit. :)

I definitely will.  :) But my question is how much to resize the pictures and place holders.....that's why I included the Properties window in my picture.  I'm guessing I just need to experiment with it too.

Although, if using animations, it's pretty simple to copy the properties and just paste onto the animations as you work your way through them.

Also - how can I not tilt the image so much?

Try clicking the image to give it focus, then in the properties, click the Y  axis field to give IT focus. Then press the up or down arrow keys to adjust. Note that you may press and hold the up or down arrow keys to allow it to more rapidly adjust.
