Editing Photo Album in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows

Learn how to access the Edit Photo Album options in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows. There is so much to learn and do with the Photo Album slides created in PowerPoint.

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 for Windows:

  1. 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.

  3. Edit Photo Album Grayed Out?

  4. 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.


  5. This action summons 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. This explains why the Create button is now called the Update button, as highlighted in red within Figure 2, below.
