comment georeferencing aerial photos with only known centroid
That seems like a good idea, but you'd have to use an image editor to mark the centre of each photo first, otherwise you wouldn't know which point to georeference.

comment converting data from excel into shapefile help
the 53056257 may be 53°56'E, 62°57'N, but that's not very accurate, even for 2D seismic, so there must be higher accuracy coordinates somewhere else

comment How to make a group of polygons larger?
Good question. I hadn't heard of scaling before - it should be part of the buffer tool in my opinion.

10: To use the Scale tool, you must first add it to an ArcMap toolbar from the Commands tab of the Customize dialog box. The Scale tool is found in the Editor category. Click the Edit tool on the Editor toolbar. Click the feature that you want to scale. Click the Scale tool on the toolbar to which you added it. Move the selection anchor (the x), if necessary, since the feature is scaled based on the selection anchor's location. Drag the pointer over the feature to scale it, or press the F key to set a scale factor. Release the mouse button when you are finished scaling the feature.

comment Do you know a fairly up-to-date ArcExplorer tutorial video for non-gis staff?
There are free youtube downloaders available which you could use at home then bring to work. Or ask your IT department to grant access for training purposes.

Thanks for taking the time to edit the initial answer - I hadn't thought of using object info.
