TTT: Quick PowerPoint Slideshows

Tuesday’s Technology Tip
Little ‘bytes’ of information to hopefully make your computing life easier.

With PowerPoint’s Photo Album tool, you can create a quick slide show from a group of digital pictures. To do this:

  • In PowerPoint, select Insert | Picture | New Photo Album…
  • Browse to the folder with the pictures you wish to insert (you can select multiple pictures by holding down the shift key or control key)
  • Change the order, rotation, or brightness/contrast of individual pictures in the preview window
  • Specify picture options including captions and black & white
  • Specify the look of the album you want under the Album Layout section
  • Click Create, and you will have a quick, nifty presentation with the pictures
