Inserting images in PowerPoint
Inserting images in PowerPoint is extremely easy. First, we need to open a PowerPoint presentation and then look for the Insert menu.
Click on Picture and then you need to locate your image in the hard drive.
Notice that you can also embed a picture URL from the Internet. This can be very useful if we are using a cloud storage service like Amazon or SkyDrive from Windows Live Essentials.
Once you have entered the URL or location in the hard disk, click on Ok to embed the picture in the slide.
In this example we have inserted a picture on the right and a dummy text in PowerPoint slide using the =rand(2) function. As we have seen previously, you can create text placeholders easily using built in funcitons.
