Product/Version: Microsoft PowerPoint 2013
OS: Windows 7 and 8

The Photo Album feature in PowerPoint is not just limited to creating presentations that contain photos. You can edit the photo content in many ways, since the Edit Photo Album dialog box provides abundant possibilities -- in this tutorial we'll explore some of these edit options. For this tutorial we have created a sample Photo Album using several wallpaper pictures from the free National Geographic’s Photo of the Day collection.

Remember: Using a free photo from a web site such as National Geographic is intended for personal use only -- don’t assume they are free to use anywhere. Read this article on Picture Copyrights which will help you understand this concept better.

Follow these steps to explore some of the editing options within the Edit Photo Album dialog box in PowerPoint 2013:

  1. Open your existing Photo Album presentation, and choose the Insert tab | Photo Album | Edit Photo Album option.

  2. The Edit Photo Album dialog box opens with your Photo Album, as shown in Figure 1. The area highlighted in red within Figure 1 includes the options you will learn about in this tutorial -- these are reorder, remove, rotate, contrast, and brightness.

  3. Figure 2 shows the marked options which are explained below.

    1. Pictures in album: This section displays the list of pictures used within the opened Photo Album presentation. Here you can select any individual photo to edit using the options we discuss next.

    2. Preview: This section displays the preview of the photo you have selected within the Pictures in album section.

    3. Reorder: These two buttons enable you to rearrange, i.e. move a selected photo up or down in the list.

    4. Remove: Delete the selected photo from the Photo Album -- this does not delete the actual picture on your computer though.

    5. Rotate: These two buttons allow you to Rotate Right and Rotate Left by 900 -- to rotate any picture 1800, just click any of these two buttons twice.

    6. Contrast: Use the two contrast buttons to increase and decrease the contrast level.

    7. Brightness: These two buttons increase and decrease the brightness level.

    Remember: There are no Reset options to undo any changes you make using the edit options explained above -- so be careful before you make any of the changes -- even if you make any changes, these are not applied until you press the Update button that we explain later in this tutorial.

  4. In Figure 3 you can see the same selected file (refer to Figure 1, shown earlier on this page) moved up in the list, and its brightness levels increased.

  5. When done with any changes you make, click the Update button (highlighted in red within Figure 3 above) to apply the changes to your Photo Album. If you do not want to make any changes, do click the Cancel button to return to the Photo Album presentation without making any changes.
