This is the last tutorial of this series, and you will learn how you can use the Facebook option to insert pictures which are uploaded within your Facebook account, straight into PowerPoint 2013:

    Notice the Facebook option, shown highlighted in red within Figure 2, above.

    Note: Don't see a Facebook option within the Insert Pictures dialog box? You will have to add Facebook as a service connected to your Microsoft account -- this needs to be done only once. Explore our Add Services in PowerPoint 2013 tutorial to learn more.
    Similar to the Flickr option, Facebook also does not provide a Search Bar to type in the keywords. Instead, you are provided with different options explained below, as marked in Figure 2 above:

    1. Manage: Click the Manage hyperlink to manage your Facebook account. Learn more in our Manage and Remove Connected Services in PowerPoint 2013 tutorial.
    2. Picture preview: This shows you thumbnail previews of the first five pictures within your Facebook account. You can click on any of these thumbnails to insert the picture in your active slide within PowerPoint.
    3. See more: Click this to open the next window in the dialog box to see all pictures within your Facebook account.
  3. We clicked the See more hyperlink. This opens the next screen where you can see all photo albums within your Facebook account, under the heading All albums (highlighted in red within Figure 3).
