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

PowerPoint can import pictures in several formats – from the ubiquitous JPG to the ancient BMP. Whichever file format you use, importing tens or even hundreds of pictures into consecutive PowerPoint slides can be a chore – fortunately, the awesome Photo Album feature makes this task a simple affair. When you use the Photo Album feature it always creates a new presentation. Follow these steps to create a Photo Album in PowerPoint 2013:

  1. Access the Insert tab of the Ribbon, and click the down-arrow within Photo Album button. This brings up a small menu -- choose the New Photo Album option, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1.

  2. This opens the Photo Album dialog box that you see in Figure 2.

  3. Now click the ‘File/Disk….’ button (highlighted in red within Figure 2 above), which opens the Insert New Pictures dialog box, as shown in Figure 3.

    Navigate to where your photos are, and select the desired pictures:

    • To select all pictures in your folder, press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + A.
    • To select adjacent pictures, click on the first picture, then press and hold the Shift key and select the last picture in the sequence.
    • To select multiple non-adjacent pictures, press and hold the Ctrl key while clicking on each picture you want to insert.

    When the selection is made, click the Insert button.

  4. This will add the selected pictures in the Pictures in album list (highlighted in red within Figure 4) in the Photo Album dialog box.

  5. To add more pictures from another folder, repeat steps 2 and 3 again.

  6. The Photo Album dialog box provides several options such as re-ordering the pictures, making picture adjustments, changing picture layouts, and applying Themes. We cover all these aspects in separate tutorials (all linked from the bottom of this tutorial) -- for now, click the Create button, highlighted in blue within Figure 4, above to insert the pictures you have selected.

  7. A seperate presentation will be created for the Photo Album, as you can see in Figure 5.
