Insert and/or Link Pictures in PowerPoint 2013

Created: Monday, October 31, 2016, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:45 am



When a picture is inserted on your PowerPoint slide, you are essentially doing a task that is frequent and commonplace — and to you, this may look like an activity that’s simple. But behind this simple task, there are options you may not be aware of. You know that pictures located in any of your folders can be inserted on a slide. However, have you wondered about the relation a picture on the slide has with the original picture located in your folder? By default, PowerPoint retains no relation — even if you delete or move the original picture file you inserted, the copy on your slide will still be retained since PowerPoint saves the picture as a part of the file it creates. Yet, there are options within PowerPoint that let you maintain the relation between the original picture and the inserted picture — for example, if you make changes to your original picture, PowerPoint will update its copy on the slide!

Learn about the advanced options available for inserting and/or linking pictures in PowerPoint 2013.
