Once you create a Photo Album, there is so much you can do to make non-destructive edits to your photo album presentation. In this tutorial, you will learn about accessing the edit options within the Photo Album dialog box in PowerPoint 2013:
- Open any Photo Album presentation you have created earlier, and then access the
Insert tab of the
Ribbon. Click the down-arrow
within Photo Album button to bring up a small menu that you can see in Figure 1. Choose the Edit Photo Album option in this menu, as shown
highlighted in red within Figure 1.

Note: Is the Edit Photo Album option in the menu grayed out? This can happen if you are editing a presentation that was not created as a Photo Album, or if you have made significant changes to your Photo Album presentation after creating it — for most practical purposes, make any edits to your Photo Album only through the Edit Photo Album option, that is shown in Figure 1.
- This opens the Edit Photo Album dialog box that you see in
Figure 2. Note that the Edit Photo Album dialog box is essentially
exactly the same as the Photo Album dialog box that you saw in the
Creating a Photo
Album in PowerPoint tutorial. The only difference here is that now you are making changes to your
existing Photo Album presentation rather than creating a new one from scratch — that explains why the
Create button is now called the Update button (highlighted in
red within Figure 2).

photographs to black and white with one click, and revert them back to their colored states with
another click? The following tutorials will help you learn more:
