Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Formatting Picture Placeholders

Created: Monday, June 8, 2015, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:45 am



When you are working with multiple pictures on a slide, their position, formatting, and size may be required to be the same across successive slides. This can be achieved manually using resizing and aligning options — although you will use an inordinate amount of time making sure that the pictures look consistent slide after slide. Even then, there are chances you may not be too happy with the results or the time it takes to make these changes. You can get over this problem by using a new slide layout with a picture placeholder. As we learned in previous tutorials, a placeholder is a boilerplate container that you can use to fill in with all sorts of content types such as text, pictures, charts, SmartArt graphics, etc.
