When you insert a picture on your PowerPoint slide, you are 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 a picture located in any of your folders can be inserted on a slide. But, 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. However, there are options in 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 2011.
