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.
Choose the Picture layout, Frame shape, and optional Theme.
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.
