is a software tool that was built specifically to aid users in creating presentations with the help of many file formats, and comes bundled with a few image samples and several versions of the Bible.
The installation process is over in a jiffy, while the interface you come across is well-organized. It consists of a menu bar, a few buttons and several panes in which to view various information. Although Help documentation is not provided, Quelea is still dedicated to all user categories, mostly due to its intuitive environment.
First and foremost, you should know that this utility enables you to upload PPT and PPTX projects, and video files (e.g. MKV, MP4, FLV, MOV, AVI, MPG, OGM, WMV and ASX), manually input song lyrics and transpose lines of chords. All your projects can be saved to the hard drive using a QSCH proprietary file extension, so that you can edit and use them at a later date.
This utility supports multiple screens, and comes bundled with several editions of the Bible (Revised Standard, King James, New English Translation, American Standard) and multiple images you can use in your presentations. It is also possible to upload your own, as long as they come in a PNG, TIFF, JPG, GIF or BMP file format.
Aside from that, you should know it is possible to add notices and edit the already created ones, as well as e-mail a schedule with just a click of the button. From the settings panel, you can easily change the interface language, text alignment, font, background color and lyrics color, display song information, and add another Bible using an XML extension.
In conclusion, Quelea is a pretty efficient piece of software for those interested in creating powerful presentations. The interface is quite friendly to all users, the response time is good and the computer’s performance is not going to be hampered in any way. There are plenty of options to take advantage of and we did not come across any errors or hangs in our tests.
