PowerPoint's Photo Album Feature

A few years ago, a friend  wanted to make a "rolling PowerPoint" for her school's open house. She wanted to add just over 75 pictures, but couldn't imagine trying to insert each picture individually. As I was her "go to" computer friend, it was my job to figure out how to accomplish this. Well, PowerPoint's Photo Album feature allowed me to add all of the pictures in less than ten minutes. 

To quickly add multiple pictures from a file or camera to your PowerPoint, simply follow the directions below. 

On the Insert tab, in the Images group, click the arrow next to Photo Album, and then click New Photo Album
    In the Photo Album dialog box, under Insert picture from, click File/Disk.
      In the Insert New Pictures dialog box, locate the folder that contains the pictures that you want to insert, and then click Insert.
        If you want to change the order in which the pictures are displayed, under Pictures in album, click the file name of the picture that you want to move, and then use the arrow buttons to move it up or down in the list.

        Choose the Picture layout, Frame shape, and optional Theme.
        In the Photo Album dialog box, click Create.
        Note that these directions are from MS PowerPoint 2010. The 2007 and 2003 versions of PowerPoint have a similar feature, but directions are slightly different.
