I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion for software that can be used to create good looking graphs for e.g Powerpoint presentations? | have access to a range of packages (Excel, Origin, Matlab) but none of them can create really "slick" locking graphs (but they are fine for figures in papers etc). I usually end up having to use non-standard parameters in Matlab (and occasionally Scipy) to get really good looking figures. I've have on occasion combined e.g. Matlab with e.g. GIMP to create figures. but surely there must be an easier way? Is there a software packages that focuses on the "visual" aspects of creating graphs?
