Presentation Management: The Entire Series



After creating a Photo Album, you can reorder the sequence of the images, change their brightness and contrast levels, etc. However, you can also make changes to the layouts of the individual slides, such as number of pictures you want to be visible on a single slide. You can also opt to show slide titles (or not), or even show your pictures in full screen view where one individual picture fits the entire Slide Area.

Let us first explore the different layouts available within the Photo Album dialog box in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows:

  • Fit to slide shows one picture per slide, in full screen view (see Figure 1).
  • Fit to slide is the default option
    Figure 1: Fit to slide is the default option
  • 1 picture shows one picture per slide, but you can also see the slide background since the picture does not cover the entire slide. Similarly, 2 pictures and 4 pictures use the same logic to show you 2 and 4 pictures respectively, and show the slide background (see Figure 2).
  • 1, 2, and 4 pictures per slide show over the slide background
    Figure 2: 1, 2, and 4 pictures per slide show over the slide background
  • 1 picture with title shows one picture per slide (and the slide title), and you can still see the slide background since the picture does not cover the entire slide. Similarly, 2 pictures with title and 4 pictures with title use the same logic, and show 2 and 4 pictures respectively with the slide titles and the slide background (see Figure 3).
  • 1, 2, and 4 pictures per slide show over the slide background with titles
    Figure 3: 1, 2, and 4 pictures per slide show over the slide background with titles

  9. Save your Photo Album presentation.

Same Layout for All Slides?

Yes, you must change the picture layout for all the pictures and slides in your Photo Album presentation. You cannot have different slides that have different layouts within the same presentation.
