Adding Images to a Slide
Images can enhance the visual appeal and effectiveness of your presentations.
Images can be inserted using commands in the Images group of the INSERT tab.
There are four sources for images that you can work with:
- Pictures – Images stored on your local drive. (In PowerPoint 2007/2010, this is called simply Picture.)
- Online Pictures – Media files (images, videos, audio, and more) that Microsoft powerpoint provides. Additional media files are available through Office.com’s database.
- Screenshot – A screen capture of any application that is not minimized to your task bar.
- Photo album – A collection of images from local files or disk. Photo albums are beyond the scope of this class, but are covered in the Microsoft powerpoint 2013 Advanced course.
