You can either insert pictures on PowerPoint slides, or link them -- either way, you can see the pictures on the slide. Once inside PowerPoint, pictures can be formatted, tweaked, and animated like any other PowerPoint object.

Follow these steps to insert a picture in PowerPoint 2003 and 2002 for Windows:

  1. In PowerPoint, create a new presentation or use an existing presentation. Make sure that the active slide is where you want the picture to be inserted.
  2. Choose the Insert | Picture | From File option, as shown in Figure 1.
  3. Choose a picture to insert
    Figure 1: Choose a picture to insert
  4. This will summon the Insert Picture dialog box that you can see in Figure 2. Select the location and the picture you want to insert and then click the Insert button to get back to your PowerPoint slide.
  5. Insert Picture

  6. To link: The Insert button has a small menu (as shown in Figure 3) that provides two options for inserting a picture picture. One is Insert, and the other is Link to File. If you want to link to a picture, choose the latter option.
  7. Insert Options

  8. Note: If a picture is inserted with Link to File option, the picture is linked to the presentation. Later, if the picture is renamed or deleted, it will show up as a red X in the presentation.
  9. Whichever option you choose from Insert or Link to File, once done you will see the picture placed on the PowerPoint slide as shown in Figure 4.
  10. Placed picture on a slide

Feature List 01 (Layout with Tabs)

The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations: one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!
