There is no doubt if you are using a rich, vibrant colored picture than olde-worlde black and white for your presentation, the colored pictures will attract more attention. However, the visibility in terms of contrast is far superior in a black and white photo -- artists and photography purists have long hailed the black and white picture as a creative medium. You may want to extend this creative medium to your Photo Album presentations -- fortunately, a click or two is all that is required to create an inspirational black and white Photo Album in PowerPoint 2013:

  1. Open your existing Photo Album presentation, and choose the Insert tab | Photo Album | Edit Photo Album option, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1.
