Death by Powerpoint - any alternatives

I am aware that Powerpoint presentations have a tendency to be dull to most people and a presenter normally falls in to the trap of just reading slides. I want to engage the audience with pictures and stylish design, perhaps with a small amount of text from time to time. Does anyone have a recommendation of a low cost alternative to Powerpoint suited to this task?

 

Many thanks
