Learn PowerPoint 2010: Using Captions in Photo Album Presentations

In previous tutorials about the Photo Album option in PowerPoint 2010, you have learned how to create a new Photo Album and how you can edit existing Photo Albums by reordering pictures and changing the slide’s picture layout. One of PowerPoint’s most powerful features is to use captions for the pictures you add in a Photo Album presentation — by default it uses the file name for your captions — so if the original file name was “Winter Morning.jpg”, the caption you see on your slide will be “Winter Morning” — that is so perfect! Unfortunately not many people provide such nice names to their pictures — most pictures are just subsequent numbers from a digital camera these days — so a name like IMG06712.jpg is more common! You really don’t want a caption like IMG06712 — fortunately, PowerPoint lets you change captions too!
