Face it: Most of us weren’t born with even an ounce of artistic ability. Some
day (soon, hopefully), the genetic researchers combing through the
billions and billions of genes strung out on those twisty DNA
helixes will discover the Artist Gene. Then, in spite of
protests from the da Vincis, van Goghs, and Monets among
us (who fear that their NEA grants will be threatened),
doctors will splice the little gene into our DNA strands
so that we can all be artists. Of course, this procedure
won’t be without its side effects: Some will develop
an insatiable craving for croissants, and others will
inexplicably develop French accents and whack off
their ears. But artists we shall be.
Until then, we have to rely on clip art pictures,
pictures we’ve found on the Internet, or pictures that
we scanned into the computer with a scanner or took
with a digital camera.
In this chapter, you find out about the different types of
computer pictures and how you can insert them into a PowerPoint
slide. Then, after you get your pictures into PowerPoint, you discover how
you can fiddle with them to get them to look better.
