Inserting Pictures from a File
the edge handles (top, bottom, left, or right) to change the size of the
picture in just one dimension, you distort the picture’s outlook as you go.
When you resize a picture, the picture changes its position on the slide. As
a result, you can count on moving it after you resize it. If you hold down the
Ctrl key while dragging a handle, however, the picture becomes anchored at
its center point as you resize it. Therefore, its position is unchanged, and you
probably don’t have to move it.
Stretching a clip art picture by dragging one of the edge handles can
dramatically change the picture’s appearance. For example, you can stretch an object
vertically to make it look tall and thin or horizontally to make it look short
and fat.
Inserting Pictures from a File
If you happen to already have an image file on your computer that you want
to insert into a presentation, PowerPoint lets you insert the file. These steps
show you how:
1. Move to the slide on which you want to splash a picture.
2. Open the Insert tab on the Ribbon and then click the Pictures button
in the Illustrations group.
This step summons the Insert Picture dialog box, shown in Figure 11-5.
