Putting Together a Photo Album
Deleting slides
Before you delete a slide, think twice about deleting. Short of using the Undo
command, you can’t resuscitate a deleted slide. Select the slide or slides you
want to delete and use one of these techniques to delete slides:
Press the Delete key.
Right-click and choose Delete Slide on the shortcut menu.
Putting Together a Photo Album
Photo album is just PowerPoint’s term for inserting many photographs into a
presentation all at once. You don’t necessarily have to stuff the photo album
with travel or baby pictures for it to be a proper photo album. The Photo
Album is a wonderful feature because you can use it to dump a bunch of
photos in a PowerPoint presentation without having to create slides one at a
time, insert the photos, and endure the rest of the rigmarole. Create a photo
album to quickly place a bunch of photos on PowerPoint slides.
Creating your photo album
PowerPoint creates a new presentation for you when you create a photo
album. To start, take note of where on your computer the photos you want
for the album are. Then go to the Insert tab and click the Photo Album
button. You see the Photo Album dialog box, as shown in Figure 1-9. For
such a little thing, the Photo Album dialog box offers many opportunities
for constructing a PowerPoint presentation. Your first task is to decide
which pictures you want for your album. Then you choose a slide layout
for the pictures.
Inserting pictures and creating slides
Here is the lowdown on choosing pictures for a photo album:
Inserting photos: Click the File/Disk button and choose photos in the
Insert New Pictures dialog box. You can select more than one photo at
a time by Ctrl+clicking. The filenames of photos you selected appear
in the Pictures in Album box. Slide numbers appear as well so that you
know which photos are on which slides.
Deciding how photos are framed: Open the Frame Shape drop-down
list and choose an option for placing borders or rounded corners on
your photos. (This option isn’t available if you choose Fit to Slide on the
Picture Layout drop-down list.)
