How to Create a Photo Album in PowerPoint Presentation

Making a photo album in PowerPoint isn’t hard; in fact the software is much more suited to this then many other tasks. If you need our individualized assistance, read our tips and then give it a try on your own installation. Check some more on how to keep audience attention.

Computer users have a tendency to start to create a photo album in PowerPoint and then end up with a finished file that is entirely too large once they finish the project. In theory it should be remarkably easy to make a photo presentation like this. However, for a variety of reasons users hit a stumbling block. A few experts were asked to compile their favorite tips and that compilation helped to make this document, which should aid those who want to display their images without anything getting in the way.

Showing Off Images

First of all it’s best to keep a few basic pointers in mind before actually getting down to the toughest part of making the album itself:

  • A photo album in PowerPoint is just that so extra software isn’t necessary
  • Likewise people can replace their existing software with the presentation application
  • Photographs are images, but they’re not the only thing that can be displayed
  • Show off drawings, paintings and maps using the same technique

Now users might very well be tempted to use the drag and drop method to embed images, since it can be quite easy, but this is actually where their stumbling block comes into play. They instead need to use the insert system. Users should:

1) Select the insert menu.

2) Pick the Picture option.

3) Choose the from file window.

4) Pick a file to insert.

5) Reposition it and then make a second slide.

Copy and paste should usually be avoided as well. The problem is that when these options are used Windows creates a type of embedded link, which is very similar to what happens when dragging something into Microsoft WordPad. File sizes totally balloon up from this sort of thing, and that will make it much more difficult to actually store and share the file. In the end that defeats the purpose of creating one to begin with. Since the insert menu uses a different set of object linking and embedding libraries to put material in a file they won’t carry these problems with them.

Making a Modern Album

It may be extremely tempting to create a photo album in PowerPoint that has so many different functions in addition to showing off images. Sound effects and word art were extremely popular at one point, and seem to be coming back into vogue. Its best to think twice before employing these options, however, since they add to the file size and might even be distracting to some people trying to use the album once its finished. Showing these off at actually personal presentations might even end up being distracting, so a simple photo album might be best.
