Working with Pictures
Chapter
9
The old adage, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” is certainly true
when it comes to presentations. Visually conveying information with
images rather than words is often quicker, has more impact, and is more
interesting.
Working with pictures in PowerPoint is easy. You can import a variety of
file types, such as photos you’ve scanned or shot with your digital camera.
You can also import clip art and photographs from stock agencies. Or you
can just use the multitude of art available within PowerPoint’s libraries,
which include thousands pieces of clip art, photos, animations, and sounds.
After you’ve chosen a picture, you can easily modify its size, position, and
even contrast and color to suit your needs. This chapter gives you all the
information necessary to work with pictures of all sorts.
