Aligning Multiple Objects
If your slide contains multiple graphic objects, like
the ones you see in Figure 15-24, you may want
some of them to line up with each other.
PowerPoint includes a tool to make aligning
objects quick and easy. Just follow these steps:
Rotating an object.

If you want to reverse the direction of a picture or
other object, you can flip it vertically or
horizontally. Take a look at the bird in Figure 15-23. In the

the bird is facing right. To flip an object, select the
object and choose Home>Drawing>Arrange>
Rotate and choose Flip Horizontal or Flip Vertical.
