Once you create a Photo Album in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows, you can do so much more with your photos such as reordering their sequence, changing their brightness and contrast levels, etc. However, it may not be that apparent that you can also make changes to layouts of the individual slides, such as how many pictures you want to be visible on each slide. You can also choose to show slide titles (or not), or even show your pictures in full-screen, so that one picture fits the entire slide area.

Let us first explore the different layouts available within the Photo Album dialog box:

  • 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

Follow these steps to see how to change the Picture layouts of the slides within your Photo Album presentation in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows:

  1. Open your existing Photo Album presentation, and choose the Insert tab | Photo Album | Edit Photo Album option.
  2. Doing so opens the Edit Photo Album dialog box, as shown in Figure 4, below. The area highlighted in red in Figure 4 includes Picture layout options you will learn in this tutorial.
  3. Edit Photo Album dialog box
    Figure 4: Edit Photo Album dialog box
  4. By default the Picture layout is set to Fit to slide (refer to Figure 4, above).
  5. Click the Picture layout drop-down list (see Figure 5)
  6. Picture layout drop-down list

  7. Choose any of the picture layouts, and you will see a preview of its appearance (highlighted in red in Figure 5) next to the Picture layout drop-down list.
  8. Click the Update button (highlighted in blue in Figure 5) to apply the new layout to your Photo Album.
  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.
