Presentation Management 09: Ensure Compliance

The Photo Album feature in PowerPoint 2010 for Windows is not just limited to creating presentations that contain photos. After your photo album has been created, you can forget about its existence for a few days or months. Then, you can open the photo album presentation again, and edit it almost like you have just created it a moment ago! 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 amazing National Geographic's Photo of the Day collection

Don't Assume Copyrights

Using a 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 our 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 2010 for Windows:

  1. Open your existing Photo Album presentation. Then, access the Insert tab of the Ribbon, and choose the 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 in Figure 1 includes the options you will learn about in this tutorial. These are Reorder, Remove, Rotate, Contrast, and Brightness.
  3. Edit Photo Album dialog box

  6. A. Pictures in album

  7. This section displays the list of pictures used within the opened Photo Album presentation. Here you can select any individual photo to edit it using the options we discuss next.
  8. B. Preview

  9. This section displays the preview of the photo you have selected within the Pictures in album section.
  10. C. Reorder

  11. These two buttons enable you to move a selected photo up or down within the list. Doing so may result in the selected picture showing in a previous or next slide within your Photo Album presentation.
  12. D. Remove

  13. Choosing this option deletes the selected photo from the Photo Album. However, this action does not delete the actual picture on your computer.
  14. E. Rotate

  15. 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.
  16. F. Contrast

  17. Use the two contrast buttons to increase and decrease contrast levels.
  18. G. Brightness

  19. These two buttons increase and decrease brightness levels.
  20. No Reset Options

    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.

  21. Figure 3, shows the same selected picture (refer to Figure 1 above) has been moved up within the list, and its brightness levels have been increased.
  22. Photo is reordered, and brightness levels are increased
    Figure 3: Photo is reordered, and brightness levels are increased
  23. When done with all edits, click the Update button (highlighted in red in Figure 3 above) to apply these edits to your Photo Album. If you do not want to make these changes, click the Cancel button to return to the Photo Album presentation without making any changes.
